I chose mine because, in my circle of friends, blinged out, strapless sweetheart ballgowns are the thing. I wanted sleeves, lace, no poof and something that I could dance like a crazy person in. All of that added up to the dress I picked. Well, that and I cried like a baby when I saw myself in it.

I loved the rouching look, the detail on the front and back and the shape of it

AHAHAHAHAH!!! I love your dress!!! Amazing! Wouldn’t look the same with my boobs, but that is stunning!!!
Yowza Woowza! That is so
My top priority was comfort! I sat, walked, jumped, danced and dropped it like it was hot to be sure my dress would be comfy, no matter what I was doing. Beyond that I knew I wanted straps because I just don’t care for strapless dresses. And I didn’t want bling because that just isn’t me. I wanted an interesting back. And my guy is a boob man. But I didn’t want to be embarassed in front of my grandmother. I don’t have any pro pics back but here is the model and some guest pics:

I redesigned my grandmother’s dress…I chose to do that because the fabric was gorgeous, the shape was classic and both my grandmother and mother wore it! There are more before and after pictures here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/updating-my-vintage-dress#post-6554635

I went into dress shopping knowing that I did not want a strapless dress (a family member scarred all of us kids at their reception cause her dress just didn’t fit right no matter how many times she hiked it up) and I wanted it to be fairly simple but also elegant. I love how it gathers on the side and the beadwork on the side (which you can’t really see in this pic). The halter top usually doesn’t work on me, but I loved how it made me feel. The back is lower than I would usually wear too, which was a great surprise for DH. He knew about my aversion to strapless dresses and was secretly worried I’d wind up with a long-sleeved, high neck dress for our August wedding. He was relieved when he saw me walk down the aisle 🙂

Wow! You have a remarkable dress and it’s such a steal!!

My (hopeful) dress by Pronovias is different because it is a silk dress with gold lace appliqués, and gold gemstone embroidery. The bodice has a round tulle neckline and long sleeves with embroidered appliqués, sheer sweetheart neckline at the front and sheer layer to the waist at the back. The dome skirt also has a detachable train from the waist.

Hey, we’re dress twins! I think I’ve seen one or two other bees with this dress too!
I picked this dress because I was in love with ballgowns, but I felt like they were all too formal for my tiny garden wedding. Also, a completely random woman at DB shopping for a MOB dress pulled this dress for me–we called her the dress angel!
I am making mine unique-er by turning the top into a sweetheart (okay, this might make it LESS unique, lol), putting covered buttons over the back zipper, and wearing a gray raw silk sash with a big bow in the back. I can’t wait!!

I found mine the day I went dress shopping. I was not planning on a ballgown, but I saw this on the website and decided to try it on. Loved it. I think buttons would be so lovely on this dress.

I had a dress with blue lace overlay over a white sweetheart neckline trumpet dress. I got it because it was unique, and I wanted something long. I had originally planned a short dress, but felt like I really needed the long length to feel bridal. I am glad I decided to go long. I might of picked something somewhat more fancy if I had a bigger budget, but it still would of been a similar sillouette.

It was fun! I hadn’t tried on a fun dress. All the dresses I’d seen and really liked were very “serious” and that’s not really me. I love how it sparkles like mad and flows and hugs my curves perfectly. It’s very much a me dress.

I loved the beading on my dress and the rich thick satin. I felt luxurious on if that makes any sense. I felt it looked good on my petite frame and I wouldn’t have to do too many alterations. I have not seen anyone else in this dress. It is an Alfred Sung.

I chose my dress for 2 reasons: I really liked the floral design on the bodice and front panel of the skirt, and it was only $385 (I bought it from a thrift store). While I was prepared to, I really didn’t want to spend over $1000 on my dress, so when I unexpectedly found this one which I really liked and it fit me well, I bought it straight away! 🙂

I picked mine because it is different from most dresses. It makes me feel amazing and I love the draped arm. When they told me it was Gatsby inspired and that not many people tried it on – I was sold!
