Perfect Dress for Me Let me offer a disclaimer by saying that I purchased my wedding gown before I was engaged. My fiance and I had already designed and purchased the ring, but I didn't know when I'd be getting it. I was browsing dresses online and saw this one. I loved the simplicity, the cut, and the price. I was nervous that because the price was so inexpensive that the dress might look inexpensive. My mom and I went to a store to see how it looked. It was the only wedding dress I have ever tried on. It was exactly my style. Simple- no beading, lace, bells, whistles, etc. It had POCKETS. Which I think is the coolest thing ever. And I love the bow. The bussel I decided blends in with the rest of the dress so well it looks like the version of this dress without the train. It does an amazing job at flattering my figure. I am 5'9" with a very slim upper body but fuller hips. I am a size 8-10. This dress fit me perfectly in a size 8. The one change we are making is changing out the clear rhinestone brooch on the bow and replacing it with a vintage black crystal one. My wedding colors are black and white. Great, simple but still elegant and timeless dress! May 3, 2012
This is it! For our relaxed-but-still-formal beach wedding, this is the perfect dress! I felt like it had an appropriate amount of princess style, while still being easy going and not too blinged out. The fabric is thick and almost matte, and will look great in the sunshine, and beside my fiance's cotton suit. The bodice is very flattering, and really enhances what gifts I've been given. The bow was kind of "ehh" at first, but it grew on me and my bridesmaids a lot, and I think I will keep it. It is easy to remove if I change my mind, just tacked on in a few places. Even with an almost empire waist, I still looked slim, but I won't have to worry about any bulges when I sit, or if I eat too much at dinner. I could move, dance, and run after my daughter in this. I had that little calm voice inside that said 'yes' when I put this gown on, and I know that on my wedding day I can be comfortable AND princessy, and not overdone for our event. Also, an unexpected plus, my daughter thought hiding under my skirt was great fun. That will be an awesome photo op! April 22, 2012
Absolutely love this dress!! I absolutely love this dress! The material is different and the dress feels amazing! I love the pockets and the bow! I feel that this dress was made for me because it fits my personality! It was one of the top dresses I picked and it was the first I tried on. I felt that this was the only dress I loved and wouldn't change anything to it!! I can not wait to wear it on my wedding day!! April 16, 2012
LOVED this dress I wore this dress for my wedding and absolutely loved it. It was so comfortable, simple and beautiful. I ended up removing the bow and having some flowers attached. I also removed a layer of the tulle underneath to make it less poofy, but the dress is stunning as is. I wish I had a reason to wear it again :) April 13, 2012
