@rcorral:  oh thankyou! It’s Allure 8903 but looks totally different than on the model. It’s heavier lace than I wanted but its kind of unique.

My dream dress:

Maggie Sottero Maude:

But… I tried it on and it didn’t look quite right….

 

My dress! A “test dress” from David’s Bridal for less than half the price of the Maggie Sottero.

I would have loved the Stephanie James “Josephine dress” in all lace. Stunning but around $3500 if I remeber correctly!

 

I ended up with her “Nadine” dress with a Josephine bow sewn on. Much more budget-friendly. I love it – Only a week & a half to go until I wear it down the aisle!!

This is one I tried on and loved – it looked better than it does in the picture and I would have had it sleevless, it’s also got an open back.  But sadly it was the day my Mum made me go to a boutique so was about 3 times the dress budget.

 

This is the one I ended up getting (no picture of me in it yet)

@coconutcupcake:  I fell in love with this same dress the second I laid eyes on it. I ordered a replica of this dress on dhgate and paid $160 for it! I’m having it altered now and spent an extra $100 in alterations. Will definitely post pictures when i go for my second fitting. Didn’t take any pictures because the dress was humongous on me.i am a size 10 & ordered a size 14, just in case it ran small. I can’t wait to wear it on my wedding day!

My dream dress:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Was not available anywhere! I couldn’t even try it on, even though it was in the shop I made my last appointment at when I called- they sold it off the racks before I got there 🙁  So, I made do with another Alfred Sung:

Is it corny to say my dream dress IS my actual dress? I drooled over this dress even before I was engaged….

Jim Hjelm JH8850 I was going to have this dress replicated, if I could find somewhere to try it on (I couldn’t).

VW White VW351011 with a sweetheart neckline (bought a dress before I saw this one).

David Tutera for Mon Cheri Eldora (fell in love with in on the mannequin, tried it on and looked awful).

And my dress, Venus Bridals AF0876.

This was my dream dress : Pronovias Uncia Dress $2700 

 

And this was the dress I actually got. It’s a Galina Signature dress. I got it for $950! I did purchase the belt that is in the picture of my dream dress, so you will have to picture the belt on this dress. It is unaltered so it doesn’t fit my body the way I want it to yet. Plus it will be made into more of a sweetheart on top:

And because I saved so much money getting this dress, I was able to order my dress reception dress through Jasmine’s Bridal. Here is the original picture of reception dress that Jasmine’s Bridal is in the process of making it! The original is $6,500!
