    When I bought my dress, the saleswoman at DB casually mentioned that this was, “The #1 most popular DB dress in Chicago and many other major cities.” I live in  Nashville… it seemed like a weird thing to say! I like to think of myself as unique, but this dress was The One. Its popularity didn’t bother me.

    That said, I’m having some work done on it to add a matching pair of cap sleeves that cover the tops of the arms. It’s popular, but I’m making it my own. 🙂

    @PonkiHoneyBee:  My dress was Maggie’s Sabelle! I’m one of 5 Sabelle brides here!

    I still love my dress, though! It was 53 POUNDS, and SO memorable! It felt so incrdible on, I totally understand why so many ladies have fallen in love with it!

    @BrandNewBride:  what? you had a dress that weighed as much as my big fat dog?

    I have to ask, why would that be attractive, carrying around that much wieght?

    I was in a bridal dress tores some months ago and picked up a dress that I wear felt like several kleenex tissues in one hand. It’ was the lightest thing! That’s the one I would want in the poundage game.

    I think a popular dress can be personalized & based on fit & body type it’ll look fairly different on each person.

    My dress was not popular and I love that about it. There were some other dresses that were more popular that I just couldn’t bring myself to buy, because I would be bothered by seeing my dress in every other wedding bee post.

    I am wearing Maggie Sottero Lorie and I have seen it a lot on the Bee….. never around my circle of friends and family though.

    It doesn’t bother me at all that it is so popular as it is definaltey the dress for me, in saying that I think it makes a difference that you can change the belt/add straps etc to Lorie to make it your own

    Although I have a dress from a popular designer (Allure), the dress itself is not popular. I have only seen one other bee who posted herself in my dress. And its from like two years ago. So I will say my dress is unique but gorgeous. I love the dresses you posted. If I had tried on the first one (similiar fabric and skirt design as my dress) despite its popularity I might have considered purchasing it…as long as it was within budget.

    I didn’t go out of my way to find a ‘unique’ dress, but it doesn’t surprise me that I didn’t end up with a Gemma, or an Adorae…just because I don’t love a lot of the bridal trends at the moment (excessive ruching, severe mermaid silhouettes etc).

    I have the Pronovias Pergola which is fairly popular on this board but no one I know has ever had a dress remotely similar. I also asked the lady at the store if it was popular and she said not really. I guess it depends on where you are but luckily I don’t think anyone at my wedding will have ever seen anything like it. Even IF it was super popular here, I love it and think it looks great on me so the fact that someone may have seen it before wouldn’t deter me from buying it anyway.

    @FauxPas2012:  I equate quality with heaviness (think furniture), so ALL the wedding dresses I liked were heavy–and Sabelle was 4 times heavier than the next heaviest dress in the store! So clearly I was obsessed with it!

     I wore this dress. It is the popular of popular dresses. I see it EVERYWHERE. Every fifth bride seems to wear it. I see it online everywhere. 

     

    But it’s popular for a reason. It is so flattering. It was affordable-the dress and alterations were $250. It was easy to alter, and add personal touches to- I wore a lacy sash with a touch of sparkle with mine. It photographs amazingly well. It still felt like mine, even though I was that girl wearing that dress. I know of a bride wearing it next month. Doesn’t bother me at all!

    @BrandNewBride:  oh, ok! That’s funny because I remember that being an early argument with me and DH–he was like you, good furniture=heavy furniture. Me, um no. I don’t like oak. And I think about those classic 18th century museum quality pieces that I could lift up with one finger so, no, not always.
