I wanted a simple, white, strapless, natural waist, A-line dress but I ended up with straps, drop waist, and embroidery:

Mine is pretty similar to what I had in mind colour and shape wise. The only difference is that I had thought I would want some lace, but found all the lace dresses seemed to busy for me so went without!

Mine is almost exactly like what I wanted. Lace, ivory, V neck style, scalloped hem &fit and flare. I knew what suited me before I tried them on !

I thought I wanted something really flowy, not fitted, ivory, possibly tulle, no embelishments, straps or sleeves.

I ended up with fitted trumpet strapless dress. It’s ivory and there are no embelishments. Definitely not what I thought I’d get.

I thought I would get lace with sleeves. I ended up buying satin and sleeveless. I did get cap sleeves added, though.

I wanted this specific Ersa Atelier from 2013 

 

 

But i fell in love and went with this 

 

Before i even got engaged i was sure i would want a long sleeved gown because they’re unique and i would wear a bra underneath. Thankfully the wonders of alterations show i can wear GG cups without a bra or any type of undergarment.

I went through several magazines looking for inspiration and there was only ONE dress I saved – Enzoani Galela.  I fell for constrast beading/stitching.

I did try it on, but I felt like the bottom was a little plain, plus it was hugely puffy.

I ended up with David Tutera for Mon Cheri Kristi.
