- Wedding: October 2012
So, I need some help.
I purchased a beautiful Ella Rosa BE123 wedding dress. I’ve always had a little feeling in the back of my mind like, “Am I really sure?” but, at the time that I bought it, there is nothing that I would have changed about it.
I liked: Neckline, simplicity of it, the neat pleating, the fact that it made me feel like a woman getting married rather than a little girl playing dress-up 😀
I was unsure about: A bit more fitted than I anticipated, is it “bridal” enough, can I carry it off with my figure, will I be able to walk/sit down without pain, the one side is a little “flat”
After I bought the dress, I started flipping back through photos of other dresses I’ve tried on as well as continuing to hang around on these boards (trouble!!)
I started to think that maybe the dress isn’t bridal enough. Maybe it’s more like a pretty ivory dress, rather than a wedding dress.
I started wondering whether I should be in something that’s still fitted through the top, but more puffed out at the bottom – to not only give me that bridal look, but also help me with the sitting issue (brides with fitted dresses – I’d love to hear if you were able to sit down and keep the dress looking good and yourself feeling good!)
I started thinking about a dress I tried on a few weeks ago, an Allure 2456. It was fitted on top, puffy on bottom. At the time that I tried it on (right after the Ella Rosa during the same appointment) I thought it had too much “bling” and too much “puff” for me. But I am kind of loving the photos now, and remember that I felt more comfortable in it, and sat in it better too.
(Sorry, I’m a long-winded kind of girl….)
