I bought this dress too! I will post my pictures soon. I fell in love with the finisterre dress but last minute tried on Bergamo and I loved it! I don’t think I’m wearing a veil since the dress is so full…just a headpiece that matches the embellishment on dress.

My Bergamo was delivered to the store yesterday and I’m going to try it on today! I’ll try to take a picture and post it 🙂

Don’t worry, I had the same sinking feeling that I was the only bride who bought it and wondered if everyone thought it was an odd dress. I got over that feeling, I think it’s perfect, both classic, modern and unique, not the same ol’ lace dress everyone has.

Hello Ladies,

I am so glad to hear some opinions about the Pronovias Bergamo!! I had the same feelings too, that it was not a popular dress since I’ve been scouring the internet for real brides photos wearing the dress.

I have a petite frame and was quite hesitant to purchase a slightly fuller dress than I expected. I actually tried on this dress by accident because I thought I had pointed at a different dress to try on…anyway, ALL my bridesmaids ADORED it so much!

I was quite hesitant because it was nowhere close to what I expected my wedding dress looked like, nonethless, after trying on a few dresses, I payed the down payment after my bridesmaids were patiently waiting for me to just agree with them! hehehe…

here’s some photos of  me in the dress (as I mentioned I’m quite petite so there’s a lot to hem! lol). I plan to have a veil, but the simplest one there is because of all the details on the dress…and I do plan to add very light tulle mini cap sleeves to the dress for some slight coverage. My first fitting is not till the end of the year, so patiently waiting! 🙂

Hope this helps!!

Thanks so much for the compliments! I still have my doubts every now and then…so I always have a quick look at these pictures and feel much better! 🙂

With the veil, I plan to have a basic floor length veil to blend in with the length of the dress. We thought that if it were a fingertip veil or any mid-length veil, it adds another layer to the dress (in addition to the top tulle layer detail). It is just too busy with all the layers…and the same goes for a cathedral length veil. There’s already a decent train for the dress; the cathedral length is just too much in my opinion.

What do you plan to do for accessories/styling?

My current plan is to have basic, delicate drop earrings to match the jewelled embelishment on the dress, my engagement ring and possibly a delicate bracelet, but no necklace. Then I am wearing mint green heels for the ceremony and beige platform/wedges for the garden lunch reception. I’m kinda going for an elegantly casual, classic, comfortable look with a hint of personality. =)

Can’t wait to see pictures of other ladies in this dress!! I have only seen the dress on models! Please post any pictures once you have some available, would love to see them!

Thanks! xo
