I would just try on some dresses you fancy. If you walk away not buying one and loving your original idea, won’t you feel great?!

I always thought I would get a simple dress, jusr because nothing about me says “fancy.” I think my dress is very simple, but not plain or boring. I absolutely love it, and think it is so me! I tried on some big ballgowns, and while I felt like a bride in them, I couldn’t see myself actually getting married in one.

I originally bought an elaborate ballgown because I thought “this is my one chance to wear a huge dress!” but I couldn’t get this other ‘simpler’dress out of my mind. In the end I went for the ‘simpler’ dress, it’s not a ballgown (more of a slim A-line) but it has a huge train  for the dramatic effect.

The important thing is how the dress makes you feel… Some girls will feel like a bride only in a ballgown, other girls will feel bridey in a mermaid or a sheath or a bunch of other shapes. You just gotta try a bunch on. 🙂

I had to sew my own dress because there wasn’t anything simple enough on the market. True story.

I have a very simple dress. Ivory silk A-line, no bling or lace or even ruching. But when I put it on, it just felt like I could live in that dress. I tried on much busier gowns, and they all felt like I was playing dress-up. The simple dress, as soon as I put it on, I knew it was mine. I do plan on altering it a bit (changing the straight neckline to a sweetheart and adding a blingy belt) but I LOVE the shape and the clean lines of the pleats of the skirt. It is just so classic.

After I bought it, I was kind of surprised that I did feel so comfortable with getting a “plain” dress. But then I thought how it was similar to my engagement ring choice. At first I loved the complicated styles that had all sorty of accents and crazy designs, but in the end I went for a simple solitaire with a half-pave band. Still a little something extra, but ultimately something that wasn’t too much. I admire the big, all-out there gowns and rings, but I don’t feel truly at home wearing them.

I totally thought that I wanted a simple, lace, romantic…dress, but when I tried on a fancy one I got flustered and everyone with me said to go with the simple one so I did. I’m picking it up at the end of the month and I’m totally regretting it. I cry all the time because I feel like I should have gone with the lace and tulle ballgown (it was champagne satin with a tulle overlay covered in lace.soooooo pretty!) even though we wanted to keep our wedding casual and simple :l I’m going to try my best to “dress it up” and I’ve even thought about adding a lace trim to the bottom.

I got a simple, non-traditional dress and I love it! I was kinda having thoughts too that I should get a fancier dress but I just decided this is soo me and I love the idea that not many brides will be dressed like me. Not to mention it was really cheap.

I love my simple dress because I’m able to get whatever sash I want and accessorize to my heart’s content! Plus we are having a BBQ beach wedding and lace gown really isn’t a good match. I figure that when we make it to 5 or 10 years I can always get a lace gown for a vow renewal or something.
