My family was in town this weekend so we decided to just go have a look at some dresses. My wedding isn’t for another 16 months. I was obviously just looking, not buying. We went to a giant bridal store in Brinkley, Arkansas (about an hour outside Memphis or Little Rock), called Low’s Bridal. It is three stories tall and looks like an old southern plantation house. I was pretty overwhelmed heading up to the shop. Once inside I felt like I was on ‘Say Yes to the Dress’ It was AH-MAY-ZING!
Anyway I tried on lots of dresses and ended up falling in love with and ordering, Pronovias: Manuel Mota’s Tirso. I love it. It makes me feel like a woodland fairy. It’s absolutely nothing like what I wanted or thought I would end up with. While I am shocked about that because I have been planning on a big Cinderella ball gown since I was 7, I am okay with it because this dress is so whimsical and so me.
Anyway, the point of this thread is 1) I am so excited, and need to tell someone! and 2) I wanted to see other real life brides in this dress.
Any of you ladies have pictures in it?

The dress is really beautiful and unique, and it looks very pretty on you, but I’m a little unsure about the asymmetric shoulder, just because I sort of feel I want to see all of your tattoo.
Is that weird? I kinda want to move the strap out of the way!
Although, I guess everyone at your wedding will be familiar with it, so won’t need to see the whole thing – they’ve seen it before!
The main thing is that you’ve found a stunning dress that you love 🙂

I had really really wanted to show my entire tattoo, so I don’t think that’s weird at all. lol
I wanted a ball gown with a sweetheart neckline, and I was going to cut the sweetheart even deeper so the entire tattoo was showing. I think it’s a bit funny that I ended up with something so far off from what I thought I wanted.

@Stassney – it’s funny how many brides end up saying that – “I wanted x dress, and ended up with something completely different!”
So pleased for you that you found a dress you love 🙂

Wow what a gorgeous dress! It looks super similar to the Demetrios style I ended up with. I’m not doing the one shoulder strap though – I’m going to use the flower as a pin for my hair or on the dress. I think it’d still look good on you without the strap if you wanted to show your entire tattoo, so it’s really up to you! Great job and congrats!!
