    Beach wedding dessy gown style 1002

    I think I like it, but no stores around here carry it, and I hate to spend the money to order it and not be able to return it if it is cheap feeling, ugly or doesn't fit me right...haha

    I'm wondering if there is a secret to this dress shopping thing that you all can fill me in on:)

    The worst part is that I like the top to one, the back to another, another part of another, etc. Maybe I need to have someone make one, but I suppose that could get rather pricey even for a fairly simple dress

    Thanks all!

      I believe I tried one on similar to this at David's Bridal. Without seeing more pics, I can't be completely sure. But I liked the one I tried on, it just wasn't "the one" for me.

        This is the one I tried on, not sure if it is exactly the same or not...

        David's Bridal - Bridal Gowns VW9146 Chiffon gown with pleated bust, empire waist, and tie back.

        Click on alternate view to the right of the picture to see the back of it.

        Not sure if I am helping though

            I saw this at David's Bridal... The consultant told me they only show the back in magazines because the front is pretty low cut, which it is... I mean, I guess if someone has a small chest it would look ok, but it is still very low cute for a wedding dress.... Sucks, because it is so pretty, especially the lace up back! Good luck, but make sure you get to try this on before buying...

              And hello to a fellow Charlottean:) Did you try that at the David's on Independence recently?

              Thanks!
              Yay! You are the first person from Charlotte I have met on here :) I did try the one on Independence. It has been since July though. I don't really remember that dress being extremely low cut, but I was just told by my alterations lady that I have no boobs (I am a small C) so I guess it could be bad if girls are more endowed than me :)

              One piece of advice, don't register with them if you have a choice. That was the first thing I did once I was engaged and I have had so many phone calls about contests I have won and so much junk mail, all from, I believe, that page they make you fill out to try on dresses.

                I fall into the "no boob" category as well, and probably less so by the wedding since I am going to try to drop some weight before then :)

                How something like that fits you probably depends on a lot of things, so I guess you have to just try it on, which I think I will go do as soon as I can!

                Thanks!

                      Here's a random question...is it ok for the groom to see your dress at all, or just not you in it? haha

                      I trust his judgement in everything clothing related so it is hard not to show him these pictures :)
