@Mrs.bride: My friend ordered that dress for her October ’11 wedding and she’s just wearing the dress as-is. She thinks it looks even better in person!! I tried it on, but it wasn’t my style.. very beautiful though!

i have tried this one and really really like it a lot.  You must try it in the silver as well as the ivory if you can as the detail really shows up over the silver.  I tried it on both with and without an underskirt.  it was a fit and flare underskirt which was just enough to give the bottom of the dress shape.  I felt that worked best.  Without the underskirt the dress just seemed to hang limp and all the folds of material made it look like there was too much excess material but the underskirt gave it wonderful shape at the bottom without being too poofy around the thighs.   I would suggest trying it on its own and then with a couple of different styles of underskirt to get a feel for what you like best.  if i can get the pics off my mums phone i’ll try to post them on here for you

oh and i wan’t overly sure of the flowers under one boob.  We discovered it would be possible to remove the flowers, as the beading detail continues under them, then i could have the flowers made into a beautiful corsage for my mum or Maid/Matron of Honor

Wow! I was beginning to think that I was the only bride wearing this dress! I am excited to be able to share! I am removing the flowers, and ordered it in Ivory/Ivory. It will be here in April! I will show you pictures, but keep in mind that the sample was way too large, so it is clipped and bunching in weird places.

The first picture is at one salon, they actually removed the flowers from the sample, and made them detachable so brides could see it both ways. The second picture is at another shop, so I am hiding the flowers with my hands. Both pictures are without a crinoline, but I did try one on with it. I am undecided if I will wear one or not.

I’m an Ella Marie bride too 🙂

 

I ordered my dress in September and it’s supposed to be here in the end of Jan to early Feb…. im SO SO excited!! I can’t wait!!!

 

They only had Ella to try on at the store so the pictures are of that one with the straps tucked in which makes the neckline pretty funky looking.  I did not try on a petticoat with it when I ordered but am pretty sure I will end up wearing one with the dress.  Will be back with more pics after my first fitting. 

 

I also got it in the corset instead of buttons since I do not live in the state that i’m from and getting married in (to make it easier on alterations)… what did you all get? Also only being 5’2” I ordered it 3 inches shorter

Hi Ladies

Im a Ella Marie Bride Aswell. Was just wondering how fitting is the bust area if getting a Corset?? I havnt tryed it on yet but wanting to order it from a wholesaler over the net, just wanted to know if the bust is very fitting??I dont want my boobs to be hanging out over it when i lift up my arms. LOL

I love this dress and i want to get it regardless But if anyone can upload pictures of the back of the dress and the sides of the dress while wearing it that would be great. Its alot easyer to see other people in the dress to know what it actually looks like…

Also can i get your opinon on what colour to go?? Ivory/Ivory or white/white???? to me i think white might be too bright but id still like u to let me know what u think for those who have and are ordering the dress. And how easy is it to take the flowers of??? Not really a fan of it with flowers. And will i need a petticoat???

 

Thanks for your help Ladies

I love this dress! the girl in the picture here looks like her dress is lower cut than the ella marie model. When I tried it on it didnt go soo low cut, I think this has been modified.

I also ordered this dress!! So amazing and light… i wanted a dress i could move around in and dance without feeling like i had a huge weight on! This dress made me feel like a bride:) put it on and that was it! i find it too funny im getting rid of the flowers too glad im not the only one that thought they were too big.
