    Timeless and classic is the closest answer and does apply, but I really wanted to look like a more sophisticated, elegant version of myself. I also wanted some lace and something comfortable and easy to move around in. I didn’t really have any ideas about what type of dress I wanted before I went to look. I knew my dress was the right choice because when I put it on it felt right. It was exactly what I was looking for, even though I didn’t realize it until I put it on.

    Timeless and classic is the closest for me. I just wanted something very soft,  romatic and flowy so that’s what I went for.

    • Wedding: A very pretty church.

    None of the above? I wanted to look church appropriate, bridal and not crap? I guess I had lower expectations but then with my budget I couldn’t afford to dream big, let alone specific 😉

    I don’t know how to answer this… maybe sexy? I want my dress to say “I’m an f’n bride” while still being comfortable AND jaw-dropping. I’m looking at a light-weight, lacy sheath silhouette.

    I love that you specifically used ‘Disney’ for your princess option, as that’s what I instantly thought before I even opened the thread! That describes what I want perfectly and how I describe it in my head every time I imagine what my dress will look like. But as you say, these options aren’t mutually exclusive, and we’re aiming for an elegant, classy affair which I know will be mixed into my look as well. As of right now (haven’t tried on dresses quite yet), the shape is most important to me as I know I want a ballgown, likely made of chiffon, but I’m really leaning toward simple…no lace or beadwork or excessive ruffles or pintucks. Just a sort of simple, princess-y elegance…the bling will come from my jewelry.

    elegant and timeless. considering i’ll be almost 40 when i get married, i didnt want to put on a dress that made me look too youngish (if that word makes sense). although i love lace and flowy, and romantic looking, i just couldnt pull it off no matter what i put on. plus i am always dressed kinda casual so i figure this dress will shock the pants off of everyone there..

    linnylou_88:  Jawdropping…and my age, since most people think I’m about 18 or 19 when I’m actually 28.

    I wanted to look like a fancier prettier version of me – so something slightly casual, a little bohemian, definitely figure-hugging.

    linnylou_88:  I wanted my dress to reflect who I am. I’ve always been kind of a free spirit, so my dress was pretty boho. I also wore a flower circlet. I don’t have any pics on this computer, and I can’t find a pic of it on google(odd….everything is on google), but this a dress that looks almost exactly like it:

    For my vow renewal, I want something fun and different that also reflects my husband’s taste. He loves 40’s/50’s style clothes, and will be wearing a fedora. Something like this I think:
