Mine has all sorts of delicate beading that I'm worried about messing up... I have to wear mine again for the AHR! I really hope I don't mess it up...
Hmmm. Mine has a some beading too, on the bodice and the skirt, I didn't think about that.

2 thumbs up for me! The TTD gown I purchased is a big poofy one also! I love that effect, and think it'll make for a great TTD photo session. But, it's all personal preference.

Thanks everyone-I feel much better about the purchase now.

 

I think I probably ought to buy that TiVo HD to go along with the BD photo album for the FI's gift huh? I'm just worried which one he'll spend more time looking at smile29.gif

Just wanted to chime in and say that the dress is perfect for a TTD and you can absolutely bustle it if you are worried about the train.

And.. LOL, your FI is too funny!! And.. I am SURE that he will look at the BD photos more than the Tivo!

If it helps at all my MOH is a clothing designer, and she told me it would be fine as long as I don't "roll around in the sand" - lol. Just try not to get too carried away wink.gif I think you'll be fine and it will make for some super amazing pics! :)

rofl.gif That is so funny! I did not end up getting a BD book for reasons out of my control, but I bet FI would LOOOOVE something like that - he would totally drool over a PS3 (or whatever the latest version is haha), probably more than the BD book!!! Men... rolleyes.gif

i think that dress will be great for TTD. Some people think I am crazy because I bought a big pouffy dress for TTD (Maggie Sottero Capri with no train) instead of wearing my nice fitted dress (sophia tolli Ashley) for it :)

Your FI is hilarious! He reminds me of mine...who, yes, thinks I am a little nuts, as well, since I will end up have THREE dresses when it's all said and done!

 

Like you, I had already purchased a dress for the ceremony (and I didn't take my time to try on lots of other dresses so I have been sort of regretting my original decision), and I plan to wear that dress after I have it shortened for the reception. The new, more formal gown (I had myself convinced that I couldn't have a princessy dress for a DW, but now I am going to go for it!) is still yet to be purchased, but I decided to get a specifically TTD dress -- and I found a pretty great one on eBay for $75!

 

I think that would be a WONDERFUL dress for your TTD, as well! The only thing I might caution you about is that I have seen some dresses with pick-ups sort of "balloon" up a little bit when you're in the water because air gets into the layers....just a thought!

 

CONGRATS on going with your heart and finding YOUR perfect dress! I say TTD away!

Thanks for the opinions! I haven't actually "told" the FI I bought it, I just sort of stopped talking about it so hopefully he'll forget and by the time he see's me in it it won't matter anyway.

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
