Kind of dress I wanted is a huge ballgown with a sea of tulle skirt and a huge hoop skirt underneath. Something very similar to this:

 

 

 

That’s Vera Wang from David’s Bridal. Tried one on my choice of bridal salon. Not only the dress was way out of our budget, but all that  tulle swallowed my 5′ 7″ Asian frame. The stark white color also washed me out terribly. Finally I ended up with this, a simpler, cream-undertoned Taiwan-made A-line gown with semi-cathedral train. It fitted me like a glove and didn’t hurt our budget, too. The gown has a sweetheart neckline but I will wear it with that detachable beaded shrug due to poor health condition.

sway0060:  my dress is close to what I wanted. I knew I wanted a ball gown with a little lace and no bling.

sierra22:  your dress is beyond amazing! Having serious dress envy right now. 

I walked in wanting lace, long lace sleeves, lace back/backless, ivory and sheath style. Lots I lace I wanted tons of it. And no train. 

I got a champaigne/blush ballgown with ivory lace overlay and a low back With a long train with lace detail.  It sounds much more similar in description than my first 20+ dress attempts were to my final decision.

I wanted a simple silk bias cut dress with no train.  

I went out with an open mind though, and tried on everything! And bought a simple silk dress, with a train.  yay!

I though I would get an Enzoani with an Illusion Neck line. I ended up with a Victor Harper with just a sweetheart.  My mom kind of convinced me and I still don’t know if it was a good ideai

I started out wanting a very lightweight chiffon gown with a lace bodice. Loved this one from Pinterest. I wanted a very natural, care-free feel that wasn’t going to cost as much.

I ended up going with a lace mermaid gown that is more flattering on me. Absolutely love the lace and low back, and the train and back fit the “lightweight” feel I was going for. I still may get a chiffon gown to change into for our After Party. In the end, I’m so happy to have gone the direction I’m going in. It’s not every day you get to shop for a fancy gown, so I’m so happy I’m making the most of it!

I thought I wanted a lace dress with beading or a big satin ballgown. All the lace I tried on felt like window curtains to me once I had it on and I just couldn’t find a ballgown I loved. Chose a beaded silk satin trumpet from Amalia Carrara

i thought I wanted lots of Lace, Cotton, or dotted Swiss and nothing satin or shiny. This was the last dress I tried on and I love it but I was also desperate for the hunt to be over. it’s a darker color so it’s not a bright shiny I was dreading. Do yall think I made a mistake? I just love so many different things!
