I came THIS close to settling on a dress that was just okay. Then I randomly decided to have a look in this little local place I never went into because I hate the dresses in the window. And fell in love! And there it was!
I don’t have a pic of me in it, since I hadn’t planned on shopping and so (of course!) my phone was dead. But I’m going back next week to pay the balance on it and to try it on with a petticoat for some extra poof to see how I like that. In the meantime, here’s the model pic of my beauty!
It’s Tilda, from Willowby.
I love how floaty it is! We’re getting married at a floating chapel, and I really just feel like this fits in a way that the heavier dresses I tried, no matter how gorgeous, just didn’t. And it has the most amazing back!

Thank you guys so much! I’m so excited to have found it!
trishthedish23 : The chapel is my favorite thing about our venue! As soon as I saw the bridge over the water, I pictured walking across it with my dad. And the stained glass dome sealed the deal. I knew I had to get married there!

xiexie : Congrats, it’s lovely. I’ve never seen that type of back on a wedding gown, very interesting.

I love absolutely everything about your dress. It’s super romantic, but it has such a unique touch to the back!

Oh I just LOVE your dress. It’s not a “standard” design… it’s unique but still has a tradtional feel too. Looks so light and lovely.

What a perfectly beautiful dress !! Such a good find. And a wonderful venue . Normally I don’t care at all about matching dress to venue, but in your case clearly serendipity ruled.
One tiny thing, does the waist sash have to be tied in a bow at the back? I love the trailing ends but the floppy bow is not, imho, an enhancement .

I can’t wait for you to post pics of you in the dress. I love the cut of that bodice underneath the lace. Also, your venue is insane!! What chapel is that? It’s really incredible!

elderbee : OMG – that’s so funny – I hated the floppiness too! But the attendant showed me a way the sash can sort of tuck into itself, leaving only the longer ribbon bits that trail down the back. It looks much smoother. It’s hilarious that we both thought the same thing!
des- : Thank you! It’s at the Shangrila Far Eastern Hotel here in Taiwan where we live. The chapel is specially built for ceremonies, and we’ll have the reception at the hotel ballroom.
