I guess I’m an encore bride?  (Widowed) first marriage didn’t wear anything special, just a trip to the courthouse.  This time I’m wearing a real wedding dress!  Haven’t decided yet about a veil.

I wish I had a picture to upload… But Elas I don’t…

My First wedding was in 1997, and I bougth a dress that had sleeves, was covered in flower appliqués and had a zipper back… The fabric was satin I beleive… It was my Mom’s favority and I was comfortable in it… although it was VERY heavy… so I picked it up…

My Second wedding will be in July, My Dress is nothing like my first wedding, It’s a Timeless dress(first released in 2013)with a slim A-line design which has sweetheart neckline and gorgeous beaded lace motifs dancing across tulle and a corset back… I swooned when I saw it online and then cried when I actually tried it on… Can’t wait to wear it!!!

MargaritaVille :  Thanks.  Yes I bought a dress, strapless tulle A-line thing, only about $300-350 from David’s Bridal. I’m wearing a lace bolero over it.  It’s simple and elegant (I hope).

blackraine04 :  My first “wedding dress” was the only dress I owned: some God-awful mustard color flowery thing that I wore to the courthouse aeons ago. This fall, just like you, I will be rocking the heck out of my light gold Maggie Sottero Emma along with a Sottero & Midgley bolero and angel-cut cathedral veil.

blackraine04 :  Your first one was so beautiful and romantic, but your current one is to die for. I actually have it in my ‘best ever’ dream dresses album :))). But I’ve forgotten the designer, was it pronovias? Or Maggie Sottero?
