- Wedding: March 2017
I have tried on so many dresses and I am frustrated. I love many of them an narrowed it down to 5 but I don’t have a clear winner and I need help! I’m so indecisive. I always wanted to wear princess ballgown but it does nothing for my body. I found myself liking mermaid/trumpet styles. I also like droped waist ball gown on me but I haven’t find anything that would make my top 5…
1) I’m having outdoor ceremony in front of a brick fireplace during sunset so I do want something that sparkles. The reception will be indoor in a hotel ballroom.
2) It’s very important to me that the dress photograph and videograph well.
3) has the WOW factor and not just another “ordinary” wedding dress. Think dramatic/unique.
#1: Casablanca Bridal (not sure what style number) I love the sparkles and the glam factor. The dress’s details show very well in pictures. However, I feel the dress is not unique enough. I don’t care for the train as much but if i do go with this dress, I would order it with longer train.
#2: Kenenth Winston Private Label by G (i dont know the style number) I love how it’s whimsical and unique. I love the pearls through out the lace. I think photo of the dress shows the details more bc the lace patterns are bigger… but I also unsure about how big the lace patterns are… It’s champange in the samples but I would most likely get it in ivory. I like the neckline and like the fact that it has straps.It has a little bit of sparkles in person but doesn’t translate the shine into photograph and video… which is the only thing i’m hesitant about this dress. I love how the bottom of the dress stay “puffy” and keeps its shape when I walk around. It’s EXTREMELY comfortable to move around in which is a plus!
Dress #3: Mori Lee 2801. What drew me into this dress is the DRAMA. It’s super sparkly and to me, the ruffles are just enough and not too much. I would modified the neckline into the V shape or sweetheart neckline. The color I tried on is nude/blush/champange… I would get it in While/Ivory. I love the dress when it’s bustled and I think it would looks beautiful during the sunset. In term of photograph/video, I think it does fine. It’s harder to walk with bc the bottom is tighter and I don’t like the way the dress looks if the area around the knee is not tight before faning out.
Dress #4: Enzoani Jenny. My first impression of the dress is. It’s beautiful! It’s the most expensive dress on the list but the quality justified the price. It’s VERY comfortable to walk and move just like Dress #2 by Kenneth Winston. It’s definitely not as sparkley as I would want in pictures but in person it does shine. I love that it does not loose it shape when I walk and doesn’t mesh up and get between my legs. It fit me in the right places and many bystanders in the bridal salon complimented me. The back is georgous. The price is also a bit higher than my budget. Also, it seems to be a popular dress and I’m trying to go for a “unique” dress.
Dress #5: Maggie Sottero Tracey. I love the sparkles and smaller lace details. I love the romantic/flowy back of the dress. it’s relatively easy to walk. It does look good in photo and video and relatively easy to walk in. It really is a beautiful dress but I need more drama. The bottom part doesn’t keep it shapes well but I can add a crinoline to keep the shape. The first picture doesn’t have the added crinoline – the last picture does.
