Allover beaded corded lace A-line gown. Style CT2406
I bought this dress for my wedding in May 2007. When the store attendant brought it to me, I thought it looked ugly on the hanger and didn't even want to try it on. My mom convinced me to do so, and boy was I glad I did. It was absolutely perfect. The first time I tried it on, I didn't have the fullest slip on underneath. When I went back the second time, the same attendant suggested I try it on with the fuller slip, and it totally made the dress. It looks a lot different from this picture with the full slip. My husband absolutely loved the dress and still comments on it to this day. He did not know what my dress was going to look like, but says he never guessed it would be "that beautiful." He figured I would wear a more traditional satin/beaded dress. He was pleasantly surprised! My only suggestion to anyone that buys, make sure they add extra strength to the bustle. Mine broke within 30 mintues of putting it up because of the weight of the dress (it is VERY heavy!). I had to use safety pins to keep it up for the rest of the night!

When I went to Davids Bridal, I was looking at some ballgown dresses and a few plain dresses, I had no idea what I was looking for. When I came out in my 3rd dress, my future mother in law saw this dress and said I should just try it on. So I did and I fell in love!!! I have never seen anything so sparkly!!!! I took a week to think about it and then I went back and purchased it. The day of my wedding 10-27-2007 all of my guests were amazed with my dress. One of them said that when I was standing on the alter, it looked like my dress was covered in diamonds!!!! I look back at my wedding video and it just shines!!!!! If you love glamourous, sparkly things, this dress is for you!!!!!!

The Dress <3
I went to a couple bridal shops trying on dresses. This was the first 'lacey' dress I tried on. I had no idea that I even liked this style. To be honest I don't really like dresses with lace accents. However, when I put this dress on I just knew this was the dress I wanted to be married in. The catalog picture doesn't do it justice. Its a classic, good choice for anyone :)
-Some beads do come off along with some sequence but really... big deal. You'll wear it ONCE.
-Its a bit on the heavy side.
-I haven't had it altered yet, but I do know it runs small. Im a size 4 and I needed a size 10 with all that stuff that they have you put on (ie: that huge bra and the slip.)
-You are going to need a 'full' or 'extra full' crinoline underneath it 'poof it out'
-Not too crazy about some of bustling options. But their was one way that I didn't mind too much, but I've seen better.
