Wedding Dress Confusion.
Posted 25 May 2009 - 04:11 PM
My wedding file is full of pics of floaty, chiffon, tulle, beachy style dresses but none of the dresses in this style suited me, the chiffon showed off my lumps and bumps and gave me no shape whatsoever.
I didnt see "THE" dress but the ones that suited me were nothing like i'd imagined and most of them felt far too big, restrictive and heavy for a beach wedding. Coming from the UK im not used to heat and humidity at all so I really cant imagine spending a full day in the sun in these dresses when I felt claustraphobic after 1hr of trying them on.
The main prob is that I was only trying on to get an idea of style because I intend to get it made from Landybridal in china (reputable firm producing copies of designer dresses for those that dont know) However now I realise the dresses I originally want dont look good on me Im worried she isnt going to be able to replicate the corset type feel I think im going to have to go with.
I just feel so confused, Is it normal to feel this down after a shopping trip. I know this was my first trip and I have time to go looking again I think I just expected to find "THE" dress and be able to get it made at a price I can afford. Cake and Eat it!!! LOL

I wouldnt be discouraged, just keep looking. I am sure if landybridal is a wedding dress seamstress, that she will have made a dress with a corset before and she will be ablet o do one for you as well.

Same here! Exactly!! I think you had the same experience that lots of girls have. I wanted tea lenght, with straps, and no beads/sparkle. That was 3 months ago and now I want a very structured sweetheart strapless, full lenth, with a bustle even! 3 weeks ago I got super inspired by a discontinued Maggie S. dress, and ordered it from duosheng.com but I continue to look and it seems I change my mind about what I like and what will actually work on my body. Chin up! It will all be okay!!

Thing is, the floaty beachy dresses ARE basically cut like nighties. Beautiful, but not meant for any type of support whatsoever and only meant to skim curves, not hug 'em. I'm used to heat and humidity to a degree, but I still have no desire to spend my wedding day feeling like I'm walking around in a portable sauna...the solution I think may be in materials that support withougt suffocating. Heavy, bridal satin is a big turn off for me, so everytime I even see a dress made of it, no matter how pretty or flattering, I turn the other way. There are satins that lend support (especially with those lovely corset backs) but still aren't as heavy as the traditional. A nice taffeta is GREAT when boned and corseted....it still breathes.
Just keep looking...there are lots of styles that will fit the bill. Go in next go round asking for lightweight, corseted gowns and do some searches as well. Don't give up and don't feel frustrated! We've all been there for sure.

My issue now is that I'm comparing every other dress to that one! So i think that I did find 'the one' but I have to keep looking to be sure. Good luck!
