@HuskerGirl:  i wanted a fitted sheath lace dress with cap sleeves, keyhole back, and buttons! I ended up buying an a-line ball gown with corset tie, no lace and strapless lol. I dreamed about myself in a lace dress for months, but when I saw my current dress online, I changed my lol. I did try on a lace dress and I looked amazing I thought, but ultimately I wanted more drama 🙂

@HuskerGirl:  thanks! Have you looked at dresses yet? I did research for months and did not want ballgown lol. I think it’s funny I fell inlove with the opposite of what I wanted.

I did have a specific style in mind, yeah. I kept looking at the pictures in bridal magazines and online, and there were specific things that always caught my eye. However, people kept telling me that you just don’t know and to keep an open mind. So I tried to, and I tried everything on. I didn’t see the kind of dress I loved until the third shop so I tried it there, and it was perfect on. 

It’s an Augusta Jones Marilyn, and it’s perfect for me.

I wanted a classic, regal ballgown and was certain I didn’t want anything to do with mermaids. I was obsessed with the Vera Wang Bouquet for weeks (it has a very simple silhouette, slight drop waist with a heavily emboidered and appliqued silk skirt) but realised it was both too mature and too heavy for a Destination Wedding. Then I was really enamoured of the VW Esther (still a bit obsessed with this one) which is a full lace ballgown with a lace illusion top. Finally concluded that a voluminous lace ballgown would be extremely uncomfortable in Bali, and ended up with the Georgina – a very fitted trumpet/soft mermaid silhouette with a messy tulle train. Still love ball gowns though, and will wear one for the reception!

And ended up with this dress only because I couldn’t afford the first one:(

I knew I wanted something pretty simple, but I tried on a whole range of different styles to make sure I knew what I wanted, but in the end I fell in love with one that was exactly like I had imagined I would wear. It helped that I got an amazing deal on it in a sample sale!

I was pretty set on a designer when I was shopping.  I also went to stores specifically looking for trumpets/mermaids with lots of texture or ruffles.  Like this one that stayed in my mind for a long long time.

They all looked good on me, but nothing sold me.  I ended up buying this sheath:

@MASPA:  oh, your dress is absolutely gorgeous.

I definitely had a style in mind — and the dress I bought was exactly what I thought I didn’t want! I think it just goes to show you really need to try on a bunch of different styles. As much as you might like something in a photo, you never know if it’s “you” until you get it on.
