Let’s see them!
Here’s some of mine….
I just LOVED the back of this one…not so much the front though.
This one was so much drama and it made everyone cry. Like really cry. But it was one heavy motha’ trucker.
This next one was so sassy and fun. I still really like it….
And then the Oleg Cassini, oh I loved it so. But there was just that “one thing” about it that bothered the crap out of me. It was so hard for me to sit in it, and the lace wanted to bunch up so badly…
(Ignore the under-arm “roll-age” on that last pic…lol)

I absolutely love the Oleg Cassini on you! but in truth you suit them all. What did make the cut then?

I actually bought this one:
I changed my mind, and this is the one I will be married in! I love this dress!

@CantWaittillMAY: LOVE your dress. Beautiful. You must be very happy.

Ooh, I’ll play!
This was my first runner-up. GORGEOUS dress, loved the shape. But with the beading and the petticoats, it was just TOO. HEAVY. for my July wedding.
This beauty was really pretty from the front, and I loved the corset back, but the shape of the train at the bottom was just really weird. My mom loved it, but I just thought it was messy-looking.
This one I liked quite a lot. Probably my second-runner-up. The back was beautiful. LOVED the train. The ruching on the front was kind of uneven though, and the lady at the salon told us that it’s designed that way. Idunno. Made one of my boobs look bigger than the other.
This one was (as you can probably tell) not even what I was looking for, but our consultant brought it out and I liked it so much. The ruffles on the back are super adorable. I might have bought this (it was cheap!) except that the next dress she brought out was The One. I liked that this was so light and flowy, compared to the HEAVY HEAVY HEAVY ones I’d tried on before.

Here are my rejects! The lace dress I LOVED and was the only one I really, really grappled with in the end. I still wonder sometimes if the first dress below was “THE ONE.” The others I quite liked for one reason or another, and they could have “worked.”

Ah! Rejects! LOL.
Here’s one I took a picture of (please don’t mind my stupid face):
There was another one, which I loved and loved and loved, but, when I actually saw the picture of it, I thought it was so ugly so I’m not posting that pic!

@skyeatnight: I actually bought Sottero and Midgley’s Adorae, but sadly have no pics of me in it… the boutique wouldn’t allow them. 🙁
@topaz925: I totally bought the last dress you posted! lol
@.twist.: I felt that way about a dress before! I tried one of them on thinking that I liked the way it looked. Um, not hardly, the picture was terrible.
All you ladies look great in your “almost” dresses even though they didn’t make the cut!

My favorite for the longest time, but mom didn’t care for it. When I found the one I actually bought, this one was no longer my favorite.
Loved this lace one. I felt fabulous in it, but I’m not really a lace kind of girl.
Maggie’s Jenna. Loved the shape, but I have a thing with fabric. I felt like I was wearing wind pant material.
And just for fun…the grass skirt one. I tried it on just so I could tease my dad and tell him that I bought it! He would have flipped out if I actually did! ha ha Pictured below is me holding a #1 sign to say this is my first choice…ha ha

Here is my 1st runner up
And here are a few more I really liked but didn’t quiet make the cut

I have lots!! All of them were dresses that I tried on at DB except for this first one.
I was seriously conflicted about this first dress. I had found MY dress at the store before the one where I tried this one on and I went back and forth between the two for a while. When I went back to the first store and tried on the original favorite again I knew that was the one, not this one. I still love this dress though.
I tried this one on to make my Mom happy but I ended up seriously considering it. I loved the way it looked but it was extremely heavy and hot. Since I’m getting married in June it wouldn’t have worked.
I also really liked this one but I was really looking for something more simple.
We all loved this dress….I thought it was the one for a minute. This is the dress that I had on when I saw another bride walk out in the dress that ended up being THE one.

Awww I want to play, but the shop I bought my dress at didn’t let me take pictures until I bought my dress. I did almost get AA’s Disney Sleeping Beauty dress, though.

LOL. One girl’s “reject” is another one’s treasure! I did love style and the fit of the Adorae, but I didn’t think it suited my venue and that’s exactly what my shopping companions thought too.
