Wear it again!
I absolutely LOVED my dress when I got married in October 2011, so one year later I decided to cut it short, into a cocktail length dress, and wore it for formal night on a cruise!! I love the idea of getting to wear it again and it turned out soo cute!! And, if I do have a daughter, I think it will make a darling bachlorette party dress or rehearsal dinner dress or bridal shower dress!!

I Love my dress :))
I went in set on buying some other dress. When i got in I saw the dress that i couldn't find when i went before. I LOVED IT. I took off that ugly bow in the front and added a purple(Lapis) sash instead. Best decision i ever made. The other good part was the pockets. Super Convinient. I Loved this dress so much. I wish i co9uld wear it everyday. It was altered and i sent it in to get refreshed right before the wedding but just be advised that it will still look wrinkled from them so send it somewhere else!!!

Not for a meticulous bride
This was my wedding dress, of course I loved it or I wouldn���t have picked it. It was not my original vision of what I would wear on my wedding day. I quit smoking almost 3 years ago and gained 50lbs in the process. I wasn���t looking forward to shopping. I flew back home and took my mother with me for a trail run to try on dresses. I tried on my first pick and literally fell apart. I was starring at ���fat bride��� in the mirror. This was my 4th dress I tried on. I felt cute and most of all I felt like me! I found myself twirling around with my hands in pockets and arms out wide. My trial run ended in a purchase that day. I felt like a Bride, not a ���fat bride���.
Things to note:
1-Thank you to all the other brides that shared photos in the reviews it truly help in selecting dresses.
2-My dress was professionally steamed several times and 1 more time the day of the wedding and it still had wrinkles (look closely at the photo reviews from wedding days and you���ll see if you look closely)
3-David���s Bridal is awesome and will work with you���they will exchange your dress for different size, color, or greater value dress. (keep in mind if you are planning to loose weight it could save you on alterations later on ��� )
4-This dress is so versatile!! With simple modifications��� it can be whatever you want it to be. I removed the bow and added an ivory sash with rhinestones and a flower to the back to keep it simple. I also removed the top layer crinoline so it wasn���t so puffy.
5-I was able to wear regular strapless bra and didn���t require any special under garments.
6-Also if you are just starting to look and you are on a budget���.remember to include your accessories, under garments, shoes, alterations and accessories they definitely add to the bottom line ��� Happy shopping and a blessed marriage!

I said yes!
This was actually the second dress I bought. The first one was an Oleg Cassini dress. I never got that wow factor from it, but I'm tom boyish and don't ever wear dresses so I figured that was normal. That feeling kept nagging at me to go back and so I did and this dress was the second one I tried on and I just knew it was it. I finally got that feeling. I felt beautiful. The fabric isn't your typical wedding dress fabric which I liked. It is simple and elegant. Not to mention that the dress has pockets. I love the empire waste. The fabric doesn't feel to heavy either. It's very comfortable and easy to move in. I'm not very girly so I removed the bow and put on an apple colored sash instead to fit more in with my wedding colors red and black. It's a great dress for any silhouette.
