I am new to this board and found there are quite a lot of posts of brides looking for other brides in their own dream dress. My dream dress at the moment is the alfred angelo 2165
My problem is I am a bigger girl, size 18 and as yet have not been able to try it on. I am a very careful person and don’t want to buy before I try even though I am fairly certain that its the dress. I love the colour, the style and how its not too much of a dress.
As I haven’t been able to try it on I would love if some of you real brides could share your dresses! Especially 2165, but any others as well would be great!!!
Thanks in advance!

see if any stores carry this dress locally that you can try on. i know i had picked out my perfect wedding dress, but then tried it on and hated it! i got the total opposite of what i orginally planned. (went from lace, cap sleves, keyhole back, a-line —> to AA 2314 which is totally different!!)
so, lesson learned, try before you buy! you can always order it from wherever if you find a deal online better than in a store!

I’m an AA 2165 bride too. Would you believe i scored this dress off Ebay for $270 brandnew and original with tags/? My dress will arrive 2 weeks from now and I’ll be glad to post pictures for you as soon as I receive it. I had it shipped to my sister’s address and she said the dress is so beautiful!

Gtimonteo that would be lovely and I would really appreciate that. I was finally able to locate the dress but I have to wait until April for when it comes in to the store, and my wedding is in November, so I have started a new search. But it took me nearly a year to find this dress, and I don’t have that long to find the other one!
Great bargain that you found on Ebay too you lucky thing! I love a good bargain! You must be excited toi see the dress!
