@Selcier:  I absolutely love your dress and the color! I remembered it from your recaps and still think about it.

Anyways I chose the dress pictured below (Allure 2359) after trying on 30+ gowns and buying two beforehand. It isn’t a trendy dress persay because I have only seen it pictured on this site like twice. But I love it. The shape makes me feel so much smaller and helps me to achieve a little bit of a sexy vibe. The flowiness of the skirt is just enough for my taste. In addition, it has just enough bling to make me happy.

What I loved about my dress was that it was nothing like what I originally wanted. I wanted no lace, no beading, no train and not in white (though technically my dress is ivory). I wanted something modern. But I tried on a lot of dresses I thought I would like and was very disappointed. Then a wonderful attendent who really listened to me asked me to try this on even though it was everything I said I didn’t want. I fell in love and in the end it was everything I ever wanted because it was the first time I felt like a bride.

I picked mine because it was the one dress that I put on that made me cry and the one that I knew would make my fiance’s jaw drop.  It was the first one my mom pulled off the rack and as soon as I put it on I just knew ๐Ÿ™‚ my favorite detail is that it is all lace and the buttons all the way down the back.  I feel that it is unique because it is part of Impression’s secret line so I don’t know of anyone else with my dress!

I originally wanted a red mermaid dress that i could only buy on the net, so i went to a shop that had pretty much the same dress in white to try it on and get a feel for it….and i hated it it was just not right.

I tried on severel other dresses and then i finally tried on a one that had caught my eye (even though it was ivory) and i just fell in love with it it actually gave me this little excited feeling, it’s not a very original dress its the alfred angelo cinderella 216 which is a very popular dress on the bee but it’s not that popular in Britain.

When I first saw my dress on the hanger, I didn’t want to even try it on, but I felt bad because I said no to the last 2 that the worker brought to me. I am not usually a glittery or very sequined person so that was what threw me off when I tried it on and LOVED it!  Besides the fact that it had every other aspect that I wanted in a dress (fit&flare, buttons down the back, and I could add a strap to make it the one shoulder I wanted for the reception) I really thought that the sequins on it was too much! Who knew!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I was surfing on internet and looking for wedding gowns. My Fiance said at a dress: It’s your dress! That’s why I bought it and really love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

I chose my dress because it was one of only a few I could find with no lace, no beading & no ruffles! I wanted a completely plain dress that I could accessorize. It’s unique cause most people these days have some sort of sparkle or lace on their dress!

@CutiePie10489:  I love his dresses. I had been looking at his one for the longest time(even before being engaged lol) but sadly when I was trying on dresses the one was discontinued. I love your dress though and it will look beautiful for a garden wedding ๐Ÿ™‚

I chose my dress because I loved the detailing on it and the corset back.  I also loved that it was part of the disney princess collection.Smile

I dont think mine is particularly unique, however i KNEW i wanted mermaid style and i wanted to feel sexy, but i wanted something different than ive seen in person and on the boards. i wanted something classic so i wont look back and think “what was i thinking” it made me feel beautiful, sexy and classic all in one. i tried on about 10 dresses and this was the one as soon as i put it on.

I chose mine because I was short on time, it fit (and required miniml alterations), wasn’t expensive, and felt wonderful on. It was the first dress I tried on that felt like “the dress”. I didn’t cry, but I knew it was teh one. I didnt’ want something too busy or too fancy since we were eloping, but I still wanted something special.

The one unique feature of my dress is that it’s convertible, so I can detach the bottom part for our first dance.

ETA: And wear the short version of it out to dinner on our wedding anniversaries ๐Ÿ™‚
