@foreverlovex:  Awe thanks! I did love it – it was a modified Enzoani Concord – I bought the sample and cut the poof off the lace sleeves and it was gorgeous but it was sooooo tight and the neck was a little too high and itchy.

These are the model shots, but here it goes …

My runner-up dress was:

Maggie Sottero Adorae. I loved this dress – it’s sweetheart neckline, belt and the bubble hem. But it was SO HEAVY! And crazy shiny! I’m not worried about my dress “dating” (because it will), but I thought this would date faster, I guess. It came in a corset back and I would’ve had to pay for a zipper with buttons. 


And THE ONE is:

La Sposa Fanal! An oldie but goodie, it was lighter in weight and not as shiny, and I thought the ruching/detail on this was much more classic. I thought I wanted a sweetheart neckline, but after trying this one on, I just loved the neckline! I’m so excited to wear it in less than 40 days!

@hazyleyedbeauty:  this is fun!


Here is my runner up. I loved the structure and the lace but I would have spent so much adding a bolero/sleeves and a sash to make it into the dress I had in mind.

Here is the dress I went with. I had it completely customized by Casablanca:

I love this game!  It’s so interesting to see the changes that people made to find “the one”

The runner up:

Maggie Sottero “Charisse”


And… the ONE!!!

Lazaro 3363

I went from looking at more traditional, all-over lace gowns, to something a little bolder to fit my personality.  When I put on this beautiful Lazaro, my mind was instantly made up!
