I ordered my dress today. I was leaning towards the Casablanca 1971 after I found it while visiting a friend out of state, and I went to a local salon today to order.
For good measure, I tried on a few other dresses, but Maid/Matron of Honor and I both agreed that *this* is my dress.
First, pictures of the dress the first day I tried it on, in Ivory with Ivory lace/sash:
And then in the color I ordered, Ivory with Champagne lace and waistband:
Just the dress
Close up of back detail
Full back detail
And a fun one, just for good measure 🙂

@TingTing: I was there with my best friend, and a this point we were the only people still there (this is while I was ordering, and the place had already closed) so I was able to get a little silly 🙂

How exciting! That is a beautiful dress, and you look great it in. I love the champagne detail.

@Amaryllis: I do too! The lace on this dress has champagne threads that go around the outside of the pattern, so it acts like a subtle outline and makes the design pop out more than on the ivory on ivory

I love this dress – wearing it in April for my wedding! 🙂 Anyone know what jewelry/accessories they are wearing with it yet? or how to bustle it?

@heart416: I wore this last summer (and I am selling my dress now). I did a double bussel on it. It was pretty necessary. I also had breast cups sewn in. I found that earrings were all that I needed. The dress shines on its own. I also had a single-tier finger-length veil made for it. I went with simple again to highlight the dress.

i almost got this dress! almost, almost.
Once I found the casablanca line, I knew I was in the right neighborhood…just needed to find the one.
As for the one…not sure if it was it, but i loved it!
But this was def a tough contender 😉 gorge on you!

I love the dress, but I am biased because it’s my dress too! Can’t wait to get it in, should be soon!
