Oh I’ll play, at first I wanted this dress by AA, but after trying it on I felt like it made my tummy look big. I dont have a pic of me in it but here it is:

 

I ended up going with this dress by Maggie Sottero, I think it shows off my curves a little better ๐Ÿ™‚ and ive lost about 10 lbs since this pic was taken too

I was always in between this San Patrick Dress, and the one I got.  But in honesty I really only had a small choice because of the time scale.  I didn’t even get to see th dresses in person until AFTER I made the choice….  The reason I didn’t go for this – which was initially my favourite was because of the bust area.  It would NOT fit in my ladies unless there was a lot of extra work done – and I didn’t have the time – and also worried about the cleavage. 

In the end I chose Augusta Jones, Juno.  And when i went to the shop, although Juno was paid for and was just waiting for me to try it on, I got the option of trying on the other “just in case”.  And boy was I glad with my choice!  I sometimes still have lovely dreams where I get to wear my dress.  The dream last night was my friend asked that all married couples wear their wedding day outfits to her wedding as a good luck charm.

I hardly did ANY research before going dress shopping, so I didn’t have my heart set on anything but really thought I’d want something like this:

Halter, dropped waist, may not white, some diagonal aspects to it …

Obviously, the dress I ended up with was EXACTLY what I pictured:

… a big white strapless ball gown with no diagonal angles at all.

This was the dress I had been dying to try on & wanted to buy..

And this is what I got. Pretty similar, mine is just more simple.

fell in love with Maggie’s Rosemary Leigh but no way am I spending that much (plus it’s discontinued)

I was obsessed with this dress and called until I found a shop that had a sample for me to try on.  I was convinced I’d look like Belle (yes, I want to be a Disney Princess, haha). But it didn’t look good on me ๐Ÿ™

 

But this is the dress I went with (and have yet to recover from my dress regret):

This was my favorite dress on my inspiration board.

My dress has a similar silhouette, but different detailing.

The dress in my dreams was Alfred Angelo’s Belle… but after trying it on, I just laughed.

So, I chose this dress instead:

These were my inspiration photos when I started looking:

And this is the progression of the dress I actually bought:

Basically, I liked the tops of #1 & 3, and the skirts of #2 & 4– in the end, I got both ๐Ÿ™‚
