I really prefer the Dulconee - it's a much softer look, and so much more comfortable too.

     

    Just to reiterate - this is NOT my final dress, I just tried it on once.

      Wow, you really made that dress your own!  What you ended up with doesn't seem particularly unique (not to say that it's not gorgeous), so I'm surprised you didn't find anything else you liked that was more like what you wanted.  But anyway, it turned out great, and you can say no one else will have your dress for sure!

      Here is mine...  I had a hard time finding what I wanted so after some adjustments, mine looks nothing like the model!  It's Casablanca 1977 but I removed the shoulder strap and shoulder applique, added a beaded belt and removed some layers of crinoline.

        I LOVE this dress!! I dont think its too much for a destination wedding. Its perfect. The dress I picked for my wedding dress is a poofy ball gown but very light. Whatever you feel pretty in, wear it. don't worry about it not being a destination dress. This dress is stunning on you.

              Finally got a decent shot of me in my dress at the final fitting! Here's my wedding dress & the model:

                    I LOVE the flow of the train on your wedding dress.  Beautiful :)

                      I agree! Definitely ridiculous given it's a huge purchase and MAJOR part of the day! You need to be able to see yourself in it and how it might look in pictures.  If a store didn't allow it, I snuck in a pic in the change room or had my friend do it.  So glad you found your dress though! Congrats!

Can't wait till I'm closer to the wedding to have it fitted and altered to perfection :)
