I am getting married in 4.5 months, so getting close to being too late to order a dress. I went to 5 different stores today and tried on a gagillion dresses. At every store there was one gown I really liked but wasn’t perfect. At Priscilla it was because I would have to alter a ton of it and it was $2650 without the alterations, at this other shop because it made my stomach look a little funny … I fell in love with this one dress, and now that I look it up it turns out it’s a “mother of the bride” dress! They have it available in “natural” which is pretty much an ivory and how I tried it, but I feel weird ordering that dress as a wedding dress!
It’s not that cheap either, $1,200 … now I’m totally second-guessing myself. I guess I was hoping to just find one and love it! I dunno, what do you ladies think? Here are some shots of the dress (none of the images are in the ‘natural’ unfortunately). Now I feel weird ordering it.

I say go for it.
I am not sure what “mother of the bride” would be wearing that dress, because to me it clearly looks like a wedding dress!

woah, I love it, and am also shocked it was labeled as a Mother’s dress.

That’s definitely an awesome wedding dress. Put what it’s technically called out of your head and order away!

Thanks ladies! I love that off-the shoulder look. At the store I thought it was amazing, but now I’m a bit worried that the pictures aren’t that great (granted my mom’s camera isn’t that great and the lighting isn’t either. Here is me in it:

Def. has bride written all over it! Put it this way, if my mom said she was going to buy that, we’d have to have a “sit down talk” about whose wedding this is! lol
