    I'm going with a beachy style but just because it's beach doesn't mean it isn't fitted and won't make me stand out! There are some super light weight dresses out there that are perfect for a DW but that won't be super heavy and hot.

    My thinking is that I'll already have some nerves on the day so better to go with something flowy. Although in my search I decided that a corset tie up back was a must! I started trying dresses that were zipper backs but once I tried a corset a never wanted to go back!

    My dress is

    Enjoy the hunt! One lady told me in my seaching that:

    "You don't find your dress, you're dress find you. It's your job to get out there and try on so many so it finds you!"

          When I went dress shopping I did try on both traditional and non-traditional dresses. I went in not wanting flowy but that's what I ended up with and I love it, lol.

          I think that what matters most is that you love the dress, I don't think that you should be confined by what's "beachy".

            Ok I'm have a completely non-traditional wedding dress. My dress is a modern/vintage art deco style.

            It's silk but it's lined and it's light and comfortable which you'd never guess by looking at it.


            I originally wanted a beachy chiffon dress and they just looked terrible on me.

              I am going with a traditional wedding dress by Maggie Sottero. I did; however, pick one with a very short train because I didnt want to be draging sand behind me. I also picked one that is rapshody taffeta instead of the silk one i also liked b/c the taffeta is not too heavy and hot.

                i went with traditional, i;m not having a AHR so this is my one time! although my dress is all lace so it kind of touches on the beachy look.

                    Mel, I absolutely love love love that Maggie dress. I wanted that one so badly, but felt like it didn't look appropriate for a wedding on me b/c I am bigger on top. I went with Carissa instead. Carissa - by Maggie Sottero

                      Maggie Sottero has a lot of really nice dresses! Bahia, your dress is georgious too! I do believe that was one of the ones that I tried on and also liked very much. Ahhh, such a hard decision.

                      This is another nice one that I was considering. I think it looks better in person though. The model's pose makes it seem like it is a nightgown! But it is just really really pretty!
