*raises hand*

After determining that I looked best in trumpets, dropped waists, and fit & flares, my bridesmaids and I were on a mission to find me a fitted va-va voom dress.

Ended up looking and feeling most fabulous in massive fairytale ballgowns. No pleats, ruffles, ruching, pick-ups, or anything… just simple, full ballgowns with a touch of sparkle (sash!!!). Suppose it’s the Disney princess in me.

Am now deciding between three most beautiful ballgowns…

Same thing happened to me! I think we surprise ourselves sometimes. Because we don’t always envision the dress that is actually going to flatter our body the most. But realistically we should be choosing the dress that looks best on us..who cares if it isn’t the one we always dreamed about 🙂 Your dress is gorgeous! Alfred Angelo is the best!

I wanted the poofy ballgown dress with the princess style themed wedding and ended up with one of the simplest dresses ever!

ME ME ME!!!

It’s so funny… I had planned on trying on the most obnoxious, poofy, beaded, laced, crystal adorned dresses I could possibly find! I was looking for something over the top, stunning, so extravagant….

Then I tried this one on and completely fell in love 🙂

I really thought I wanted a 50’s style dress – tea length, full skirt, cap sleeves or tank style….   I found that these dresses looked terrible on my body – being only 5’2 and plus sized.  I tried on Alfred Angelo style 2100 and fell in love.  I felt so beautiful and loved the flowy ruffles and beautiful top.

My dress has everything I said I didn’t want: lace, pickups, and a dropped waist. I didn’t even pick it–my consultant did. I initially didn’t even want to try it on because of the beadwork in the front. My consultant talked me into trying it on, but I didn’t know it was my dress until we added a sash and I imagined what it would look like without the beading. Then I was sold! It perfectly captures the romantic feeling I wanted even though it looks nothing like I imagined it would!
