Show us your dress: This is me in the sample ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

Are you making alterations to it? As long as it will zip up in September, no alterations except for having some major push-up cups added!

Who is the designer? Alfred Sung

Did you have your dress picked before you got engaged? Not even a little bit

Is this what you expected/wanted? Kinda. I knew I wanted lace, and form-fitting. But I actually made fun of the “seaweed” part of the dress and quickly passed over it when I was shopping. The consultant made me try it on and I fell in love.

Does your Fiance know the style of the dress? He knows it’s not a ballgown and that it’s more form fitting. And I let it slip about there being lace on it.

Has he seen your dress? He accidently saw a picture of it from a distance on my iPhone, and quickly screamed, “AH! I didn’t see it! I only saw white, I swear!” Not that he would remember in a few days, anyways… haha.

Are you making alterations to it? I’m adding a bussle, and maybe adding a one shoulder organza rufflesleeve!

Who is the designer? Kitty Chen

Did you have your dress picked before you got engaged? Nope, it took me a year and a half to find my dress after getting engaged.

Is this what you expected/wanted? Wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted. But after I saw this dress, I kept comparing all the others to it, so I knew it was the one.

Does your Fiance know the style of the dress? Yes

Has he seen your dress? Yes, I showed him a picture or two of me in it. We really arent the superstitious types.

I wanted to show you ladies my dress now that I’ve lost some weight. Still not happy with the backing BUT it wasn’t done up tight and my hoop hasnt arrived yet. So i think once it’s done up properly with the panel in, it’d be fine. But I love the way it is on the front now, and the back sits much better.

It is a Pina Fiorenza “Victoria”

I still have four months to go and more weight to lose, but I figure if I cant lose anymore between now and then, I’m happy with how it looks ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m late in the game but I want to play too!


Show us your dress? I don’t have a picture of me in the dress as I do not want my fiance seeing it at ALL costs! In addition, my Mom is the only one who has seen me in it!

Are you making alterations to it? The salon is guessing it will be about $350 in alterations because it’s so long (I’m wearing flats) and the whole bodice is beaded and will need to be taken in.  I haven’t decided if I should wear a sash or not….opinions????

Who is the designer? Maggie Sottero, Adalee

Did you have your dress picked before you got engaged? Nope

Is this what you expected/wanted? I wanted a ball gown!  Mom wanted mermaid, Mom won haha!  I put on a ball gown and loved it, but I know my fiance’s jaw will drop in this one!

Does you Fiance know your style of dress?   Probably as I’ve told him it’s hard to move in (the price we pay for beauty!)

Has he seen your dress? Absolutely not!
