It was the lace and pearl details, capped sleeves, the illusion neckline and the gorgeous back-buttons. I’ve tried MANY lace gowns; I am not a fan of strapless dresses for myself. (I have an innate fear of wardrobe malfunction, knowing myself)

Unique feature? Tea-length. It will allow me to do the ridiculous “pop foot” when I kiss my FH during the ceremony.

 Circe:  I chose my dress because the assistant pulled it out for me. Haha.

because it is a Vera wang, because this is still the prettiest mermaid I have ever seen!

because it’s so different – bias cut, raw edge, crinkle chiffon, and it’s vera wang (WHITE), and it’s just a little offbeat like me.

I wore a discontinued Alfred Angelo on my day. I choose it because it was so different from everything else I tried on. It was so simple compared to what I originally looked at. I have not seen a single other bride with this dress, which kinda makes it unique

Plus I love the detail on the back of the dress. i love the double bow and how the button detail covers up the zipper

Here is my Marys Bridal Karelina Sposa dress! I went into the dress store looking for a mermaid with no fluff. After trying on a few mermaids and realizing I couldn’t walk in them the consultant showed me this dress. I was skeptical at first but when I put it on it was perfect! The roushing, flower details and of course the single strap! My husband LOVES it when I wear single strap tops so I knew he’d love the dress! Plus, I felt this dress fit my Modern Country Spring theme perfectly!

Thia was my dream dress I saw online. My fiancé and I met two stepping and I needed something I could dance in. I LOVE tulle and it’s perfect because it’s  not heavy. I love that my dress has “textured” tulle and it isn’t all one length!

The picture pretty much says it all! I didn’t bother trying on anything because I knew what style and colour I wanted.

@Miss Circe:  When they first put it on me I said “HELL NO!” because it was super big (size 12) and I was just drowing in it! Then after they began to tighten it and pull in on my body the idea of it being “THE” dress seemed less crazy. I love how the straps are lighter and fade into the bust and how the lace fades down by each layer of fabric. It just feels like me 🙂  only problem is that is is a low front AND back so keeping my bust under control is going to be a hard chore lol

@Miss Circe:  The first one I tried, ordered it online, it was affordable and it fit.  Only had to hem and that was free.

I love my dress so much. The original design is Silaba by Pronovias, but I am having a custom replica made by an AMAZING dressmaker. This magician of fabric made my sweet 16 dress, my sister’s sweet 16 dress and the wedding gown of a close family friend. 

What do I love about my dress the most? Well, my dress was the 5th dress I tried on. Found at the 2nd salon, on the 1st day outting.  I tried on a few other dresses but just kept coming back to Silaba. 

What do I love most about it. I love the shape of the dress and the scalopping up top. That’s if I had to pick only one thing I wanted. 

And now….Silaba!


ETA: ok I know which part I like best! I love the detailing on the empire waist

Mine is unique since it was made specifically for a fashion show. It’s currently being altered though, getting the neckline changed to sweetheart, taken in and the back lowered a bit 🙂

It’s pink, it will be being made pinker, it’s loud, it’s a prom dress.

I chose it because it was the right price, fit my personality and is just generally dope as hell.
