    I very much wanted to be an Alfred Angelo bride as I [LOVE] a lot of their dresses.  However, I kept calling all bridal salons listed as being an Alfred Angelo shop they were not or they only sold the BM dresses = / 

     

    I had to finally give up with a broken heart. However, it is awesome to see other girls who like Alfred Angelo dresses as well.  I'm completely jealous!

      Thanks ladies. I too like the neckline on the second dress and the sash on the first. I'm feeling better about choosing 2034 after reading your reviews. I'm not changing for the reception and the dress needs to be one where I can "get down with my bad self," and I think 2034 is perfect for that. It's also a MAJOR plus that 2034 brought me in under budget. I think I'll just lower the neckline a bit. Otherwise, the dress needed absolutely NO alterations needed - also brings me under budget.

        Pazzesca-I'm not sure where you live in NJ, but I went to the Alfred Angelo Signature Shop in Allentown, Pa. I live in central Nj and it only took me about an hour or so. My only warning is there a real B"*$@ that works there named Stephanie and do not get her. If she wants to help you ask for someone else. I had to make a complaint against her b/c she was so nasty to my family.

          awww thanks dana!! i live in Bergen County, NJ in a town near Giants Stadium.  Unfortunately I bought a dress already at David's Bridal =/ I'm happy with it but I REALLY wanted to be an Alfred Angelo bride since I got engaged a few years back.

           

          Thanks for the helpful tip about the Allentown store.  If there is a bride thinking of going there, she'll be in the know!!

              Thats so funny, I tried on both of those dresses and almost picked that very same BM dress! I really liked 2117 and still do. I feel like its different and I LOVE the neckline. If youre going for a sexy look definitely go with 2117. If youre going for a more traditional, sublte look then 2034 is better. GL with your decision! :)

                I fell in love with the neckline and the bottom of the dress.  I picked 2034 because I wanted to be able to "get down with my bad self" and 2117 wouldn't allow me to do that because it's so heavy.

                 

                I'm feeling a little better about choosing 2034 I just needed some reassurance that I picked the right one.

                  I live in Jersey too!  Cherry Hill, so more Philly than NY.  I got my AA dress from a store around here.  Cherry hill has a ton of bridal stores!

                    Hi -I am very excited to be an Alfred Angelo bride =). I just ordered #2117

                    I did not feel like it was that heavy of a dress, but I know we all have different opinions =)

                    It feels soooo good to have a dress!!!!

                       @ Mrs. Williams: I love the dress with the sash, I am jealous!! But they are both gorgeous, so go with whatever makes you feel the most amazing! 

                       

                       

                       

                       

                       

                      I just happened upon this thread so I will share my dress too!  It is Alfred Angelo 1148, I can't wait to try it on again in my size, the sample at the store was way too big, my dress comes in January!  Hopefully you can view my pic!  Also I have to say it was a great price too, bonus!
