- Wedding: May 2014 - The Cove Lakeside Resort
Thanks everyone for thoughts! Its hard saying no to dresses when they are all so pretty, and when they look good on you! ( I’m sure everyone has this problem 🙂 ) anyway I’ll give you my thoughts:
Dress 1: I really liked this dress, as jwilk241 said, it does have a lot of detail that you can’t see in the picture. there are two layers of lace on this dress the top layer that you see is very pretty, and the second layer was made with a shimmery threat in the lace. So when you stand under the lights you get a slight shimmer of sparkle under the first layer. The fit of the dress was beautiful, I loved almost everything about this dress, but it was a bit heavy,it didn’t feel heavy when I had it on for a few minutes but I noticed it when I changed into the next dress ( which was dress 4) and the next dress felt so light in comparison. Dress 1 was also out of my budget, by enough that I don’t think I would be comfortable buying it in that price.
Dress 2: This was the first dress I tried on, and I love it. I have very wide hips, and I feel that this dress gives me that nice hour glass shape, and makes me look skinnier than I am. It was very comfortable to wear although it was tight. I also liked how the lace and beading trickeled down the skirt rather then being all lace on the top and nothing at the bottom. The price was under budget and the size I tried on is the correct size for me and fits me almost perfectly ( alittle tight on the hips but I am trying to lose some weight anyway so I will hopefull lose a few more inches on my hips before the wedding anyway. This dress it one of my top favourites.
Dress 3: I really liked this one too, it was so different than the other dresses I tried on. I loved the flowiness of it, I couldn’t stop touching the ruffles. I think it looks really good on me too, the bodice had a good length and the belt was sitting in the right spot. The way the tulle was laying on my body in a flattering way, I don’t think it made me look like my hips are huge . I’m getting married at the end of May in a place that tends to get fairly hot so this dress might be the coolest of them all. This dress is also a top favourite.
Dress 4: I liked this dress I think only because it reminded me of dress 2, similar design with lace on top that trickels into the skirt, but instead of being a modified A-line its a ball gown. But when I compair it to dress 2 I don’t like it as much, so I think this one is out.
