- Wedding: September 2009 - City Hall
Hi ladies, I’m perusing some dresses, and wondered if y’all can help me out. If I get married in the courthouse, I decided that I’ll still want to get a nice dress (but maybe not wedding-caliber-expensive) to wear. We’d probably have some photos taken there, but I’d also want to wear it as one of my outfits for a couple-photoshoot (like an engagement shoot but after the marriage) we’d get later afterward for our announcement cards and to frame.
I love all of these, but don’t have a nordstrom anywhere close to me, so I’d have to order online. So I’m wondering if anyone has photos of yourself or a friend wearing any of these? If possible, can you tell me how tall the person is too? (I’m 5’10").The Tiered Gown is my favorite, but it’s at the top of my price range of what I’d spend for this type of dress. It’s still on my list though, and would definitely be on my list for a wedding too. I love how it’s both simple, and fancy/delicate. Anyway, hit me with your pics, please.
Or, if you’ve tried them on, how’d they look on you? I’m an hourglass/pear (34/30/40) and I’m 5’10”. But I’m trying to improve those bottom two numbers a little (hoping to be more like 27/37). I’m also open to other colors (specifically green or brown) and other suggestions.

These are great! I hope someone has pictures, but I just love the Tiered Tulle!

Why not just order all 3 and return the ones that don’t work out?

I voted for the first dress and I think after your courthouse ceremony you should shorten it and possibly even dye it so you can turn it into a LBD that you can rewear often & maybe to other weddings! I chose it because I’ve worn a similar dress, but it was short and I really liked it, plus I also like the neckline on it.
Either way, I suggest you order several options and whatever you end up not liking you can just send back, Nordy’s has THE BEST return policy, and it’s so easy for stuff you order online!

I’m pretty sure that first dress is Mrs. Seabreeze’s dress or looks very similar to it.
Someone is selling that second dress in the classifed section. Here’s the link to the ad: http://classifieds.weddingbee.com/topic/lovely-bcbg-wedding-dress-for-sale
And a link to the pictures of the dress: http://bluedaisyblog.com/janicejack-2/

ooooh, I love the second dress, but the third is also very lovely if the cost is an issue.

Those are all beautiful! I voted for the third one, mostly cause I’d be concerned that the layers on the first two could add bulk around your hips. Bit they’re all gorgeous, I know you’ll be beautiful no matter which one you pick!

I love number 3! It’s so glamorous and chic!

Let me say that I love BCBG dresses. I love them so much that I purchased 2 for my upcoming ceremonies. I purchased the 3rd dress for a private outdoor corthouse ceremony. I purchased a size 10 and at the time, it fit beautifully. The only problem is that I am losing weight and am now in a size 8, so I will probably sell mine. I am almost 5′ 6"" and the dress is a little long for me. I almost wish I had purchased a petite, even though I don’t wear petites in regular clothing. Look on the Nordstrom website for info on seam length. I found this pretty accurate and wish I had paid more attention to this detail. The dress is very flattering for different types of figures because of the way the chiffon hangs. Because it has an empire waist it really makes your legs look LONGGG and beautiful!
I purchased mine ebay for a fraction of the cost and the dress is brand new. I will probably sell it for something like $75, just to recoup some of the cost if anyone is interested. I hate to part with it, but I will probably just buy it in a smaller size. I don’t have a photo of me in the dress, but can probably take one for you and send it if you would like – pm me.
I am having a second church ceremony and am soooo close to purchasing the 1st dress for the ceremony. I tried it on this weekend and LOVED IT. It is so elegant and resembles a few wedding dresses that I saw in magazines. It is not a mermaid style, which definitely helps if you want to hide your hips (which I do : )). I say that you can’t go wrong with any BCBG dress that you purchase.

I love the last dress — so sweet and simple without looking like a layered wedding cake! I tried on the second one because I thought it might be nice for my rehearsal dinner, but it looked horrible on me!

I wore the lace and tulle dress for my wedding. It’s nice and comfortable.

I really love #2 and #3. They are so flowy and etherial.

It’s hard to upload pictures. Maybe you can give me your email address so I could send you some pictures of me wearing the lace tulle.

Sure pacos – i’ll PM you. I’m so in love with that dress (and we don’t even have a wedding date!). (Given my luck though, I’ll buy it and it TOTALLY won’t fit right or something. lol.)
