This is a fun post! Thanks for sharing your pics Amaryllis. Oh my god I have tons of reject pics at home, some awful to look at and some that still make me go, “hmmm, what if…”. I’ll post them tonight from my home computer. Anxious to see others pics as well.

hehe what a fun post!!  

I sadly and honestly do not have any pictures of rejetcs…I sorta knew right away and moved on. Also, the salon where I found my “winner” I don’t even have pictures from! I *will* when I go in Feb. to do my first fitting!

Fun!

Okay…The first day, this was the one I was in love with.  I started calling it the “Fun Dress”

 

This one the 1st runner up on the first day–I still kind of think about this dress b/c it is so classic.  I LOVED the back, but you can’t see it–it was lower cut in the back.  It was a halter, but if I had gotten it I would have made it strapless

This was very pretty & most similar to Jenny Peckham which was the style I initially thought I wanted.  Very beautiful & very comfortable, but it reminded me a lot of my prom dress & I wanted something different….

Okay, okay, this is my last one!!  This was from the second day and this is ALMOST the one that I got, until I found the one I ultimately chose.  I think its super cute, but I thought the strapless was actually less flattering on me than the strapped/plunging neckline version of the one that I did get, even though the bodice was exactly the same.

@amaryllis – I LOVED the flower strap on the “fun dress”.  My feelings alternated btwn “It’s so different & extra & I love it” and “Is my Fiance gonna laugh at me when I roll up with this big a** flower on my shoulder???”  I still think its adorable though!

Yes, that lace dress is Maggie–can’t remember the name though.  It was really the only lace dress I really loved b/c I loved the pattern of the lace.

@flamingred – I really love the last dress!! So elegant & flowy.  I could see that working in any type of venue

moneypenn02: the last dress looks amazing on you! if that was a reject, i’d love to see how awesome the one you chose is. where can we see a pic of it?

 

and flamingred: i LOVE claire pettibone and tried on several of her gowns, but ultimately decided that they were all too informal for my wedding. did you ultimately settle on a different claire pettibone gown, or something altogether different? (edit: just saw your post in the “dress vision” thread. guess you did, ha!)

I only went dress shopping at 3 places: Alfred Angelos, David’s Bridal, and a boutique near my parents called Bridal Chateau. I had two favorites from AA, and one from DB that didn’t make the cut, and tons from the boutique that I wasn’t allowed to take pictures of.

 

So here’s 3 that didn’t make it!

Alfred Angelo. (I liked this dress, but didn’t LOVE the neckline and thought it made me look a tad hippy)

 

 

Alfred Angelo. (I really wanted lace at first, but this one just had too much going on.)

 

David’s Bridal. (This one felt strange in the boobs and it didn’t feel wedding-y to me. Although my mom loved it and thought it would go really well with the reception venue.)

 

In the end I ended up going with Casablanca 1881 in all white which was completely different than what I had invisioned myself wearing! (an all lace mermaid type gown).
