i went on my very first wedding dress adventure yesterday with my girlfriends. we went to 4 places and it took all day, but i’m pretty sure i’ve found the one 🙂
i had been dead set against strapless dresses, because they make me feel naked. but the saleswoman brought me a dress and insisted i try it.
when i stood on the pedistal, she brought in straps that could be purchased an added to the dress. i melted 🙂
sorry the pics are gigantic. it’s a private label by g ma 30.
i didn’t go ahead and buy it for 2 reasons. i had an appointment at david’s bridal and there was a dress there i was dying to try. (which i ended up hating).
AND, the shop that this dress was in offers a “bridal pampering appointment”. you pay $100, and you need to book 3 weeks in advance. then, they shut the store down, and you can try on any dresses you like. they have food and pop champagne, and you can invite a few guests with you. it’d be a great time to shop for bridesmaid dresses, too. then, they take the $100 off of your purchase.
i guess my main reason for posting is to get some objective opinions. THANK YOU 🙂

It looks lovely on you, and I totally agree on feeling naked in a strapless dress! One thing: the lace straps look very wide, and you have a narrow frame… it looks like they don’t quite “fit” because they go over your shoulders a little (like not-quite-cap-sleeves). Maybe they would adjust them properly if they were actually sewn into the dress, but it’s something you may want to ask them about.
I do think you look stunning and really happy with the dress 🙂

I’m not a big fan of slim fitted wedding dresses, I like big princess ball gowns. but I really like this one! looks great on you! doesn’t matter what everyone else thinks, you’ll be happiest wearing what you look best in.
