You have to go with what you love, not what anybody else loves.

You are the one wearing that dress all day, so you have to love it!  I’m glad you picked what you wanted 🙂

Yes, you definately need to get the dress YOU want.

This is my 2nd wedding; my first wedding my mom brought home 3 dresses from the bridal store (small town, so they let her borrow them) and I had to pick from those. I didn’t even get to go to the store to look at dresses, she just told me that I was wearing one of those she borrowed and she’d take the other 2 back.

And ironically, the dress for my first wedding reminds me a lot of the one you posted that your mom liked!

This time around, I’m getting the dress I want.

Mom’s choice


My dress


My mom’s choice was a pretty dress. And I was even one that pulled it off the rack. But it wasn’t “me”. I think she was looking more at just the dress rather than me in the dress.

I think you look great it in but eep the scallops.  My mom’s choice is a bridesmaid dress – this one (I think… they may have discontinued the exact one…), but with an a-line skirt, a sash, and no ruffles.  In white.



I am pretty sure it remains her choice because she was there when I tried it on (she lives in CT), and it was 100 degrees that day.

@divergirl: Oh, whoops, I didn’t make that clear.  We were looking at bridesmaid dresses that could be worn as wedding gowns.  I like the idea of something shorter and simpler, but in that I’d be terrified that there would be guests significantly more dressed up than me and then everyone would feel super awkward.

It’d actually work ok as a bridesmaid dress since we’re getting married in Carmel Valley and it will (hopefully) be warm and sunny, but it’s too expensive – I’d feel bad asking my bridesmaids to drop 250+ on a dress.
