Ok I have been collecting dresses from ebay/sample sales etc that I have found for incredible bargains for wearing out for our date after our wedding and reception (we are getting married in Vegas and having a non Vegas wedding and then want to go in full finery to gamble and eat)
So here is what I currently own in my personal boutique – it has been fun and I was curious as to which style you like the best if you were picking a dress for yourself 🙂
So here is what I have to choose from . . .
#1 Maggie Sottero Angelica
#2 Alfred Angelo Piccione 410
#3 Jasmine Couture T183
#4 Amsale 357
#5 Maggie Sottero Zara
#6 Allure Limited 169
#7 Anjolique 2017

Holy crap.. you bought seven dresses- I love it 😀
I would choose the amsale and have the top altered into a sweetheart neckline 🙂

@maureen9004: If I said I collected 7 (actually 9 not including my real wedding dress) for investment purposes does it make me a slightly better person?
I promise I STILL have not spent my original wedding dress budget because my first dress was half of what I was planning to spend
Gulp and Blush

Alfred Angelo or Allure… I can’t decide!!! Probably Alfred Angelo for dinner and gambling. So beautiful!!

@Almy_al: well it was kind of fun (ok enormous fun) LOL I just got lucky on some of them and had some mad money to play with – I will either donate and write off my taxes or sell after the wedding but I will never get this opportunity again and I am usually the sample size which makes it easier to find a bargain 🙂

@unixfairy: Could we see pics of you in the dresses ? That might make it even more fun ! 🙂

Holy cannoli….that’s a lot of dresses! You should open a shop! I really like the Amsale dress, and I like what one of the PPs said about making it a sweetheart neckline. I also like the first Maggie dress, too. Can you wear them all? Please? lol Maybe one every night you’re in Vegas?

OK update the amsale dress was returned for a full refund due to some issues with the dress 🙂 So if you see it on Ebay PM me and I will see if it is the same seller – the dress is unwearable and is being sold as new
but I replaced it with these two lol . . .
Christina Wu 5479
The Piccione just will not work well on me – I have an hourglass figure to start with and it just makes it look too exaggerated
I love the Maggie Sottero Angelica but it makes me look short waisted so that one has gone down on the list
The Anjolique is simply breathtaking – the same company that makes Anjolique makes Enzoani and the fabric is so soft and the beading is exquisite but it is already too big
I have not tried on the Manila yet and am waiting on the Christina Wu – should have it tomorrow
Sometime this summer when I have finished losing weight I will pick my top gowns and let the hive vote with real pictures on me – my dress shop where I got my “real” dress has offered to do the alterations on this dress as well.
This has been a blast!!!!!!!!!!!

The first one is my favourite but that’s probably because it looks a lot like my dress! They’re all beautiful!
