I have lots.  I guess that’s what dress shopping 7 times will do to a girl!

the first one is a pic my Bridesmaid or Best Man took cause she thought i looked funny in it. I thought it was cute, but neither of us knew how to squeeze the back corset so it looks big on me. the second dress I liked alot, especially the back, but i wasnt a fan of the lace.

I wish they would have let me take pics. I had to sneak this one in the dressing room. This dress cost $3000 waayyyyyy to much in my opinion and it didn’t have anything special to it.

Pronovias–I thought for sure this was the one, but my mother hated it. I think I was also attracted by the price (it was at a bridal consignment shop), and because it was one of the only dresses I got to try on ever in my actual size. 



Loved this one, but thought it was too sparkly for our daytime wedding: 

David’s Bridal–I really liked these two: 

(The first one was too heavy for dancing all night, and I really can’t remember why I didn’t get the second!)

Love this thread…

I tried on SO many dresses – I have no idea how many and it was mostly just for fun!  The ones that stuck in my mind are posted here except for a beautiful dress by Modern Trousseau that I cannot find online at all – it was gorgeous – a v-neck, floral brocade.  Amazing fabric.  Way too pricey for me and the train wasn’t long enough but it was beautiful.  The other one I can’t find online was a Watters strapless taffeta a-line with a floral applique that I tried on at a consignment shop – it was the first one I almost considered but it wasn’t exactly right.  I’ll attach the others here.  There are 3 Casablanca, a Maggie Sottero, a Pronovias and an Augusta Jones.

Yay, I’ll play! Now that the wedding is over, I can finally post piccies of stuff!

#1 – I *heart* Pronovias, so this one is a close second to the one I ended up with but just wasn’t really ‘me’

Here are a couple of mine… Sorry if the pictures  are huge, I’m not sure how to make them smaller!


This one was pretty, but not me AT ALL.


This one was one that I loved, but we are planning on getting married in November in New England, so this is just much too summery.


The last one is beautiful, and gave me a teeny tiny waist, but there was a little too much boob, and I didn’t care for the back of the dress.

The first one’s the winner (plus a blingy-er belt)!

Augusta Jones ~ Tia. Loved the serenity of it but was worried it looked ‘too safe’ and my reflection in the mirror of the 2nd photo, the dress gives me fat arms because of the straps.

Here is my #2 dress.  I thought it was #1 but I realized that #2 (my final dress) was easier to move in and was better material.
This Casablanca was very pretty but it was heavy.  I would have been picking it up the entire night.
