Mine isn’t white and it’s convertible! The straps and back are just attached with a few buttons so it can be converted to a backless dress!

Thanks! Here’s the front. It hasn’t been altered yet and needs to be taken in. I’m actually planning on even having it altered after the wedding to take most of the train off and the fullness out of the skirt so I can wear it again to formal events, which is part of the reason I didn’t go with white (also, I don’t think white or Ivory flatter my complexion at all, they make me look washed out!)

ummm… it shall be mine?

It’s going to use natural materials and not be trendy at all, a classic ballgown, not overdone. I’m going to see what’s available but most likely will get it custom made because… I’m picky like that. So in that case it’ll definitely be unique in a literal way, but not in an attention-getting sort of way.

BTW,@cirk: , that heirloom gown is beautiful! One of the prettiest wedding dresses I’ve seen. Most wedding gowns I’ve seen in magazines/the bee look the same to me (regardless of the fact that they’re completely different from each other in many ways, but they still tend to blend in my mind) but that gown sticks out to me as especially beautiful… and how cool that it’s a family heirloom! I’m jealous, I’d wear that too if my grandma had such a gown to give me.

I think the sheer overlay on my dress makes it unique, there aren’t alll that many dresses like it on the market right now. Also, Pronovias didn’t have any in the 2014 stuff released recently.

I know everyone has seen these pictures already today but I’ll post it again =)

Mine cost me $25 which is unique enough. That said it is a one of a kind to begin with and then even though it was never worn I tore off the sleeves and made it a strapless with a sweet heart as well as a corseted back

Mine is unique because I think the trend is fit and flair right now and mine is an empire/a line. Also I am adding straps, which make it more unique than the strapless version I think. 🙂

@cirk:  simple fingertip with blusher for ceremony only. you can kinda see it in the picture, but there was no blusher on the one they had in the store

ETA it’s so sweet that you are wearing your grandma’s dress!

Mine isn’t exactly unique but the bateau neckline paired with a long aline skirt and the simplicity off if make it unusual at least
