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

@MASPA:  Yowza Woowza! That is so elegant!

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 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 🙂

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.

@SouthernGirl:  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!!

@howsweetitis:  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!
