- Wedding: June 2012
AAhhh I just spent almost thirty minutes writing this post and it all got deleted. Anyways, here we go again.
A coupel people suggested I write a new poll since in my last one I didn’t include the third dress until after a lot of people had already voted.
DRESS #1- Sottero & Midgley- Adorae
PRO’S: I feel like this dress is really flattering and I think it looks good on me. I like the silouehtte, the fact that it’s fitted, and the sparkly details. The ruching helps conceal my mid-section. I loved the reaction I got from my bridesmaids and family when I tried it on.
CONS: At the same time, I feel like the ruching may be a little too much. Also, although it is a beautiful dress I don’t feel like it’s THE ONE. If I HAD to wear it to my wedding I would be ok with that since it’s flattering and looks good, but it’s not my dream dress. The other bad thing is that the dress is REALLY heavy, and doesn’t seem like it would be too comfortable to wear the whole night, especially to dance in.
DRESS #2- Vera Wang ‘Ethel’
PRO’S: It’s exactly the silouetthe that I’ve been dreaming about getting married in. I love the beautiful elegant fabric throughout the top of the dress. If I went with this one I would alter the neckline into a sweetheart and I would wear a sash or some type of sparkly belt (not the one pictured here which is sittign too low). It is a really light-weight dress and was really comfortable.
CONS: The fabric really shows off my problem area which isn’t good. I am planning on losing some weight and I would wear some good undergarments to help combat that (such as a longline bra or spanx). However, if for some reason I DON’T lose the weight, I know I won’t look all that great since my pooch would be poking out.
DRESS #3: Blue by Enzoani- Darwin
PRO’S: I fell in love with this dress when I tried it on and didn’t want to take it off. I remember standing in front of the mirror smiling. I love the top part of the dress especially and the sparkly belt that’s attached. I also really like the lace at the bottom of the dress. If I got this dress I would make it slighly less poofy (it’s actually clipped back in the picture already so it would look like it’s shown here) by maybe takign a few layers out from underneath
CONS: It is a very poofy and princessy dress- not what I imagined I would like at all. I also didn’t get the reaction I was hoping for from my family. They all said it was pretty, but I don’t think they were wowed. I know they all (including my fiance) want to see me in something fitted.
