Off-the-shoulder A-Line with Side-draped Bodice Style T9861
This dress is my dream dress...
I've never tried on a wedding dress before and as a young bride [20 years old] I was extremely nervous I wouldn't find anything. I'd fallen in love with this dress on the website and was worried it wouldn't look good on me. The women that helped me out found that they had only one size left it and it was two sizes smaller than they recommended. I tried it on first and it fit perfectly and looked wonderful too! I was in love at first site and I've never felt so beautiful than I did in that dress!
It's extremely figure flattering and compared to the other dresses I tried on it was light weight and comfortable. It was flattering to my chest and arms and it was easy to walk in. I can't wait to stand beside my Air Force husband-to-be wearing it!

I LOVE THIS DRESS!!!
This was the second dress I tried on and I fell in love with it immediately. I am going for a pinup girl look so we're going to dress it up with a crystal and pearl necklace and a birdcage veil with orchids attached since it is on the simpler side. The dress looks a lot better on a girl with curves. I'm a size 6 and got lucky with being blessed with a larger bust so the dress definitely accentuates my curves. I wanted to look like a pinup girl but in a classy way. My mother was worried about me showing too much cleavage but when she saw it on she loved it as well (and she's ultra conservative). I love the ruching in the middle, it makes my waist look tiny.

Going to try on dresses for the first time was nerve shattering for me because I haven't worn any kind of dress in over 6 years. I happened to see this dress on the site and i fell in love with it...but of course I knew it would be different when I tried it on. The moment I stepped into the dress and didn't even see myself I already knew it was the dress. It was the first dress I ever tried on and to please my family I did try on 3 others. When i saw myself in this dress I felt like I was dreaming. It hid my flabby tummy that comes from having 3 kids, made my ghetto booty look not so out there, and gave me the hourglass figure that I often dream of having. I would highly recomend this dress to anyone...specially those who have a body more like mine. I never thought I could look like that on my wedding day and this dress made my dreams come true.

Touch of Elegance
Never trying on a wedding dress before, I had no idea what to try on or expect. When going to David's Bridal my fiance went with me. I asked the consultant to pick out dresses that would be flattering for my body type plus being a Destination wedding. I was brought all kind of dresses and short, but they all were strapless. I wanted to try something different. So, I asked my fiance to see if he could find a halter dress. When he came back, not knowing what I meant by halter he brought this dress that came off the shoulders. It was the very last dress I had tried on. We had took several pictures of the dresses and when I got home I posted them on my Facebook to get others to give there opinion of which dress suited me the best. Amazingly, About 98% of the people chose this dress. It was a dressed that was picked up by accident by my fiance. It would fit perfectly into my Destination Wedding and so flattering. The lace up back is amazing flattering, especially if you have wider shoulders so it is very giving. Beautiful and amazing dress.
