I was going for bling on top and big ballgown on the bottom. In “the one”, I got everything i orginally did NOT want in a dress…..embroidery, organza, appliques, beading, and an ivory gown. I wanted a white gown, taffeta, pick-ups, long train, asymmetrical waistline, rouching, and lots of rhinestones only on the bodice of the dress.
Very first dress I ever tried on and it was the #1 contender throughout my dress search until that very last deciding moment. This dress also made me have A TON of dress regret for the dress I bought. It had the all over Swarovski rhinestones, embroidery (didn’t like at the time), asymmetrical waist line, taffeta, long train, and pick ups. You would think I would have said yes then right? lol. I couldn’t say yes to the one and only dress I tried on though. I had to know what else was out there.
One of the first few I tried on. I LOVED the ballgown shape and that it was taffeta, but it didn’t have the bling and glitz I wanted.
This is a Maggie Sottero and it was pretty heavy, but very pretty! It just didn’t have those pick ups that I wanted. I really liked this one though.
Another Maggie, I LOVED all the bling, long train, and it was taffeta, but something about the neckline I wasn’t too crazy about the embroidery at the very top.
One my mother in law picked out…
I LOVED the train on this one, but wasn’t crazy about the flaps in the front nor the heavy-ness of the dress….
LOVED how big this one was, but the bodice’s rouching looked really weird. The bling I LOVED too.
Then there came ‘the one’ that everyone loved over any of the dresses. I was REALLY REALLY stuck between the first dress and this one. I decided on this one with the mentality that “well I love both dresses, but one is cheaper so I will just get this one.” So I bought it. Here it is on my big day…
