Inspired by this thread, I thought it would be nice to have a thread dedicated to brides with pickups. This may help to make the OP feel better about her dress when she sees all the other beautiful dresses with pickups and how many of us there are. Ladies with pick up dresses, lets show our beauties!

I had pick ups! Mine were more scattered then most, but I loved them!

@Tswife4ever: oh my gosh you are so adorable to create this spinoff thread! I love it! You look gorgeous in your dress! I love the pickups and the detail on the bottice. Soooo pretty! I can’t wait to see all the pictures that everyone posts! Yay!
@mwitter80: You look beautiful in your dress too! This is so fun! hehe

I was late to the pickups-insecurity thread… and I was shocked to read that there’s apparently some sort of anti-pickup sentiment on WB! I had never even heard the term until my favorite dress had them. Already posted this on several threads, but twist my arm, here it is again. (Essense of Australia D1118).

Here’s mine! (Pic taken during fitting.)
I don’t have a picture of the back with me wearing it, but here’s the model picture of the back:

Your dresses are all so beautiful!
@Sschaf: Our dresses are very similar to each other. You look beautiful in yours! Funny how when I see someone else in a similar dress I fall in love with the style all over again. haha

Wow thanks! Mori Lee style 4163. It cost around $600 from the bridal shop, but you can find it online for much less (oops). I also bought a vintage beaded belt to add some bling to it.
Yay! How are you doing your hair/veil/jewelery?
You all are really making me feel better. I have seen so many gorgeous dresses on this site, that I am starting to have dress envy. I think I may have to log off for a few days. But, thanks to your comments, and this thread, I am feeling much more assured in my decision.

@Sschaf: I’m not sure yet but I found pics of a bride wearing a similar dress (same designer as my dress) and I like what she did: classic pearl necklace, long veil, hair down with soft curls. http://www.recycledbride.com/listing/5928/barbra-allin
I’m thinking of copying her but maybe doing a drop necklace with one pearl instead of a strand because I’d be more likely to wear that again. What do you plan to do? P.S. I totally hear ya on the dress envy. I’m starting to envy so many other bride’s deresses. I’m making myself crazy. lol
