I posted yesterday about how I had to ditch my Sottero & Midgley Adorae for a better-fitting gown. I’m perfectly fine with that, but having had some time to obsess over that gown and figure out its “story” and “identity”, I kinda had my wedding pegged as Old 40’s Hollywood Glamour. I’m not sure what the new dress says to me and therefore whether my concept/theme has changed. Can you help? Here’s a pic of the dress and the rhinestone sash I’m adding to it (which, by the way is STUNNING in person because it really shines!):

@tess75: I love it! It’s simple, elegant, yet modern. I’ve tried on similar dresses and they are always so flattering to the body. I love the sash too, I’ve been looking online for one that is similar to Chelsea Clinton’s but haven’t found it yet, I’m going to look again at etsy. I prefer the wider sashes vs. the thinner ones.
Anyway, I love the dress and I think it just conveys a classy, modern bride. :o)

I really like it. I think “elegant, chic” when I see it. It’s not fussy, it’s simply beautiful. I’m not sure what you’re looking for though. 🙂 haha.

Thanks! I’m just wondering what your first impression is upon seeing this dress. Not fishing for any particular response; I just want some genuine reaction.
I don’t get “old Hollywood” from this dress. I don’t get “princess” from it, either. When I tried it on and chose it over Sottero & Midgley’s Desirae, I said I feel classy in this gown, so maybe classy is a good descriptor. The Desirae fits my personality (I see it as a total rocker chic gone soft gown – and that’s me 🙂 ) but was going to need too much work to make it feasible in my timeline.
I think I want to funk it up a little with a statement necklace but it’s so hard to appreciate how they look in person when you’re shopping online. Any recommendations?
