Yes this is another dress post. Please forgive me.
I’ll get right to the point.
I thought I liked mermaid/tighter fitting dresses, and my first time trying dresses that style is all the bridal girls had me try on. This time around, I insisted on trying on a ball gown, and guess what? Now I’m even more confused about this dress business!!! I almost teared up with the tulle gown on….while I had no reaction with the other ones.
Anyway, I’m not getting a dress until like March of next year BUT I would like your honest opinions on the next dresses. Which one gives you the “Wow” factor?
Dress #1 (Amsale – Sabrina) : The one that changed how I feel about ball gowns (It’s kind of an A-line but not really). Don;t mind the belt, we put on a sparkly one over the already existing ribbon so it looks funny. I would order it with no belt and put my own.
Dress #2 (Marisa gown): The shape I thought I wanted, but I’m not so crazy about the bottom.
Dress #3 (another Marisa gown): Safe, lace and flowy dress. The bridal attendant said a lot of people order it (so that turned me off too) I liked it, but didn’t love it. It was safe…so I’m not sure.
Dress #4 (Paloma Blanca 4202) This dress I absolutely did not want to try on, but when I did, my mother and Maid/Matron of Honor loved it. They loved the top part, and the bottom was growing on them.
So….we have ball gown, A-line, and two mermaid styles.
Bees, which one do you prefer? Should I pick a Sexy (mermaid) dress OR a Princessy (ball gown) dress?? None of these would be IT, but just for future purposes.
Thank you so much for your help! 🙂
