    chachamaru :  will you be wearing one dress all day? If yes, I’d say comfort is important. I’ll wear the ‘proper’ dress for the ceremony only which is 30mins, max an hour so wouldn’t mind something less comfortable. I’d think differently if was a matter of 8-10 hours though

    Comfort!!! I almost chose a dress that didn’t look good just because of how soft it was.

    I’d go for the wow dress. But there’s no reason you can’t go for a wow dress and comfortable shoes. To me, that’s the best of both worlds.

    I figured since I was only going to get to wear it for a couple of hours at most, so I decided to go for “wow factor” over comfort. However, my dress ended up being the most comfortable thing I wore that week! I didn’t want to take it off! So it’s possible to find a dress that wows while being comfortable as well.

    They can’t both be equal if one “wow”s people and one doesn’t.  Obviously you’re interested in the “wow” or you wouldn’t be asking.  

    Do you wear yoga pants when you go out for date night or do you wear a nicer outfit that is slightly less comfortable but way better looking?

    My original dress was a comfortable dress and I started regretting it after a month or two because I just felt like it wasn’t bridal enough.. it felt more like an evening gown/prom dress.

    I found my dream dress by what practically felt like fate and it’s definitely the wow dress now. I’ve always wanted something over the top because it’s my wedding day and I wear dresses all the time, there’s only one special day in my life where I get to where a dress like the one I have now. 


    I’m so excited!

    The most important thing for me would be to enjoy the day and have fun.  If the wow dress was uncomfortable to the point that I would be counting down the minutes to get out of it, then I would pass on it and wear the dress that is both pretty and let’s me feel good.

    I originally picked a mermaid for the wow factor but as tight as it was just to sit in, I knew dancing and moving around would be difficult. I went with a flowy A-line/ballgown and it was perfect.
