- Wedding: March 2011
I know I’m coming off as a total flake here… with all my on and on for months about the Jacquelin exclusives lace dress, and then my obsession with an etsy dress, and now back on the Jacquelin but customized.
Not to mention a few others in between (what a dress whore!)…
Now, though, wow… now I am REALLY REALLY excited. Yes I was excited before but this seems different. Randomly, unintentionally, I discovered david’s bridal’s CT2406:
Now, I’d seen it many times on the website and I was kind of ambivalent. THEN I saw it on a real bride. With a crinoline, and better pics, and !! I was in a rush to find out WHAT dress that was and where it could be bought, so I searched and realized what it was, then I found the review pages for it on the DB website and saw pic after pic of it in “real life” where it is 110 times more beautiful, IMO.
At this point I am not even caring that it’s strapless (which I swore off from day one!)!
Example (and more on the review pages!) from a preownedweddingdresses ad:
All the pic I found really show how it sparkles and how it looks with a crinoline, which the DB website doesn’t show at ALL. All the reviews talked about how it reminds people of sunshine on freshly fallen snow and I love that imagery… as someone who loves winter and is having a semi-winter wedding (winter in Iowa anyway!)!!
I’m really wowed by this dress… then I started looking for used ones and I THINK it might wow my budget, too! Maybe if I am lucky??
Of course there are still things I would want to add… but I think that is not about the dress because I do that with EVERY dress. It’s about me needing to put my “stamp” on things. So I might add a lace bolero and definitely straps, maybe cap sleeves instead of the bolero, I don’t know. At any rate I’m really thinking hard about this one. Even though it’s strapless!!
I also love the fuller skirt with allover lace which I have NOT seen much of at all.
Oh and if anyone has one to sell, with train, prefer ivory but white is okay, size 16 or 18 (or 16w/18w) feel free to message me. 😉 I am hopefully going to go back to DB (which I don’t like but need to) to be sure of the size, within the next couple of days. It’s on sale right now for $799 I think but I will hopefully buy it second hand.
Anyone wear this dress and love it, or have thoughts? I would especially love to see pics of it with a sweetheart neckline. I found an example on ebay but not a very good example (not a pic of it on a body)..
