I bought an Alfred Angelo dress, but a designer label isn’t important to me. I didn’t even know until long after I ordered it that some people consider AA unclassy. I honestly don’t care. I feel beautiful in it! And even for a relatively inexpensive dress (I paid $635 Cdn), it still cost me more than any other article of clothing I have ever owned! I don’t think I’d feel twice as beautiful if I spent twice as much.

FWIW, I think the 2020 is stunning. I don’t know the other ones you looked at, but neither will anyone else who sees you on your wedding day, right?

first of all, i love that dress.  it looks really really nice.  I can understand your feelings though.  I feel the same way about Watters and WTOO.  At the end of the day though, I really don’t think it matters.  Get the dress you love, not the dress with the "right" label.  No one will see the lable inside the dress.

I can totally understand how you’re feeling. I am the type o girl who gets her heart set on something and NOTHING else will do! I have to get what I want or else – especially when it comes to my wedding! (yes, i know, i seem like a bit of a "princess") but hey, like i said, it’s your wedding day – you don’t want to get something you don’t LOVE just to save some dollars. On the other hand! I agree with Meowkers 100% – you have to get the right dress, not the right label ;).

The dress is beautiful.  I agree with the previous posters get the dress that you feel the best in, not the dress with the right name.  Good luck and let us know which one your decided to go with for your wedding day!

I wish I could see the other 2 dresses to compare.  I think the one you show here is beautiful, but it’s hard to say much more without seeing the others.

You need to be happy with your choice.  Only you are going to know what the label says inside your dress at your wedding.  I tried really hard to make myself fall in love with a beautiful Mori Lee dress that was going to only cost me $500.  Something kept holding me back (and I still can’t pinpoint what it was), and after 20 or so more dresses, I found one that felt and looked amazing.  I’d like to think that it wasn’t a name issue, but rather an issue of fit and style.

If AA is going to be nagging in the back of your head the whole time, and keep you feeling less beautiful than you should, you might want to move on… BUT, if you think that you can move beyond that and feel proud of yourself for transcending name brand, then maybe it will be a great experience.  It certainly is a beautiful dress!

If I found a dress I liked as much for half the price, I’d have to go with it. Just don’t take wedding pictures with of the dress’ label. 😉
