  • poll: Your dream dress in photos vs. your actual wedding dress: one in the same?

    Yes, I saw my dress, fell in love, and loved it even more once it was on!

    No, my dream dress wasn't actually "the one". I fell in love with a different dress once it was on!

    I didn’t like the dress when the model was wearing it, but it looked *amazing* on you!

    @MrsFutureG:  haha, that is awesomely funny :). Just recently one of my BMs was commenting on how some Bridesmaid or Best Man choices make her feel like a linebacker

    Hi Bees!

    You all look STUNNING!

    My dress is Romona Keveza L196. I’m not usually one to brag, but I think it looks a bit better on me than the stock photo on the model… which is a fun feeling!

    @intrepida_ets:  I seriously rethink my decision not to go with pergola every time I see your pictures, but then I remember that I hated the way the jacket felt and I don’t want strapless!

    I was exactly the same. I thought something a-line would suit me as I am quite big in the hips. I loved many of Belladonna dresses, particularly the first one here. However when I tried them all they were awful and made me look massive. I had never heard of pronovias, but so glad I found this gorgeous label! I was not expecting a fitted dress to suit me. The second I pulled on Adele I know it was the one! Love love love the caped sleeves, scooped back and lace detail, and so flattering! It is a little big at the moment, will need to be taken in.

    I tried on several dozen dresses without doing any prior research.  All of them were just like eh…So I started to do some research online.  I probably looked at every wedding gown, ever.  Then randomly I came across Casablanca 2066.  I was like uhh…yes.  That’s the one.  I went to the store, tried it on and fell in love.  Glad I took the time (4 or 5 days) to research online.  Otherwise I don’t think I would have tried on this dress.  BTW- I originally wanted a lace mermaid gown, and ended up with rouched tulle!
