Hi!

Here I am trying on Dawn. I bought it and I’m waiting for my very own to arrive! Clearly, it looks totally different in person than on the model (why must bridal models always look so… crazy?) There’s some crinoline on in this picture, but  more can be added for more fullness. I probably won’t go too poofy, since I’m not very tall. This is the alabaster color, which is also supposedly shown in the model pic, but I think it looks somewhat silvery in that picture. It’s really a much warmer color.

I’m thrilled to hear that you love the dress, and I would love to see other brides, too!

I LOVE Dawn!!! Correct me if I’m wrong- but I believe the dress has pockets? Something about that just seems super neat! Such a classic, beauty!!

Very classy. Not fussy at all.

I get to pick her up this weekend!

@Jsquared: Yes, she has pockets! I’ll definitely keep some tissues and maybe lipstick or something in there. I just need to not get caught with my hands in my pockets all day!

@kala_way: Not fussy is definitely a plus for me. Since the dress is simple, I feel like I can play up the accessories a little more. I got a necklace made on Etsy to match the beaded details, and I think I may wear a couple flowers in my hair.

@francypants: The dress looks AMAZING on you!! I’m  interested in this dress too but think I’m too short. I’m only 5’2″ 🙁 How tall are you?

@Kris729: Hi! Thank you! I’m actually only 5’3. I think in this picture I was barefoot but, obviously, standing on a riser. I plan to wear 4″ heels to rock this thing (at least as long as I can stand them!) 

 

@Treasure43: Thanks!

Congrats! I hope you love the dress as much as I did! I got a ton of compliments on it (I mean, I guess every bride does!). You know it has pockets, right? It was a fun little moment when I reached into my pocket and pulled out my vows during the ceremony. 🙂 I had planned on changing into a reception dress later on, but ended up wearing the gown all night cause it was so much fun!

This isn’t a pro shot, but I think it shows it pretty nicely (ignore my husband’s concentration face during our first dance):
