Wedding Gowns - You VS Model

Recommended Posts

*bump* i love love LOVE this thread and think it would be a shame for it to go away--hopefully that's not an etiquette faux paux!

 

it was so helpful for me to get a feeling for what dresses looked like on real women and how gorgeous everyone was in theirs before i went shopping (this sunday).

 

i had a few favorites picked out but was so worried about how i'd look in them versus the model given i'm (a) not size 2 and (B) have hips which none of the models had in any of the style dresses i loved. but the very first dress i tried on, i really loved right off the rack. so now i just have to buck up and buy it wink.gif

 

Anyway, here's the Kittychen Princess tyle dress on the model:

And here's the dress on yours truly wink.gif

of course, since i'm practical to a fault, i can't possibly buy the first dress i try on, so now i have to try 383010101 other dresses to confirm. i'm exhausted just thinking about it!

I think it looks beautiful on you!! I felt the need to try on a bunch of dresses also but ended up with the one I originally thought I would. We're women...shopping around is our perogative wink.gif just try to stop us!

I'm so glad this thread got bumped! I was just looking for it yesterday and couldn't find it. I am going dress shopping next week so maybe I'll be able to post here soon :)

 

islandbride317 - I love your dress, but what I love more than anything is how excited you look to be in it!!! You definitely defeat the model. Mind you, I think with that look on your face you could be wearing a paper bag and rock it!

 

asayle - You look just as good as that model and maybe better!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
