    I didn’t see any like mine on the blogs, but then again, I wasn’t planning a wedding for the blogesphere, I was planning it for myself and Darling Husband.  Don’t let the blogesphere take away something that you love, if you love your dress then love your dress.  There are alot of Bees who have dresses like yours, I had a ballgown, and there are a ton of ones very similar to yours on here.  If we all had StyleMePretty weddings, this would be a very dull world.

    @All In: Your dress is beautiful and very traditional. I would imagine it would fit a large church wedding. Brides are doing all types of weddings now, many of them like to show their figure and be sexy on their wedding day. Your dress is classy and everyone will love it.

    Your dress is gorgeous! I wouldn’t worry about it.

    I never really saw my type of dress on a  blog, either. I wouldn’t worry about it, though. Most wedding blogs have a very narrow focus, and it’s perfectly fine that your style doesn’t match theirs!

    You can go to Maggie’s website and look at “Maggie’s brides” and there are a few girls who wore this gown :). BEAUTIFUL dress btw!

    It just means the trends aren’t in line with your dress right now…but bridal fashion evolves. I love Style Me Pretty…but there is definitely a “look”  that they go for.  Branch out.  There are many other wedding blogs!

    @tksjewelry: Exactly!

    Op- Start looking at other blogs. Or just stop looking at wedding blogs alltogether. I think the wedding blog world is a source of great ideas, but it can really warp a person’s own uniquness and make one feel unworthy/not good enough/too fat/too traditional/etc.

    I never really see my dress anywhere (Loretta, Sottero & Midley) so don’t fret.

    I did see it on a Randy (SYTTD) TLC Top Weddings of 2011 special a few days ago. There lo and behold it was on a stand right behind him and I about peed my pants.

    I think that it’s most important to make sure that your dress matches your personal style, not the style of several wedding blogs! I think that the SMP weddings are pretty — but it’s definitely not a look that I want for myself.

    I googled my dress when I first bought it; the only hits I got were from a woman who was selling it on oncewed, from two women who decided against it, and from my own weddingbee post!

    I’m feeling the same way – I haven’t seen a dress that is similar to my style of dress at all… I am starting to worry that it is in as ‘perfect’ as I thought it was!
