Show us your wedding dress!

Here's my dress. I tried on about 25 dresses over the course of two weeks and I wound up buying the first one I tried on! How crazy is that!?

OK well I went to a bridal shop down in Orange County today full prepared to try on my beloved "Scarlet" and possibly buy it (they were offering 10% off because it was the trunk show. So I tried it on and while the dress is still just as beautiful as ever I figured I try on some other gowns just in case. Well this Alvina Valenta dress ended up just being more flattering. PLus it was on sale and was the perfect size and well it was 1/2 the price too. So I bought it. The pictures don't look so great - my friend took them with her camera so now I am sudden;y having second thoughts (and ofg course it's too late because everything is paid for).

 

Anyway it's the same alencon lace that Scarlet (among many other dresses) is made with and it has a satin folded ribbon under the bust that is curved which helps make the waist look small. Anyway these pictures are awful - So I am just praying that it looks better in real life:

Yup - got the veil too. I am starting to calm down a but - suddenly I was having buyers regret - I guess that happens with big ticket items. Here's a pic of the top and another one of the back online. I bought mine without the snap on bow train thing but you can get a better idea of the lace and stuff:

Hi Janet,

I choose style 1831. Here is the link. CasaBlancaBridal.com: Fall Collection/1831

(I still haven't figured out how to post a pic in my message....guess I need to read up in the how to section)

I also heard that net bride was a good site. I'm glad that your experience with them was a good one. Sometimes it is hard to know if you should trust an online retailer...especially when it comes to buying something as important as your wedding dress. I'm glad it worked out for both of us. BTW, I think I mentioned this in the thread with your wedding photos, but your dress looked great on you!!

So, I took my dress to my BM's house this weekend and had her take some pics of me in it. For the life of me, I can't post the pic in the message. I keep getting an invalid file error (and I did try resizing the pic...hmm). Anyway, here is a link to the pic.. hopefully this works. I'm holding the dress in the back because it needs to be altered. And, as mentioned in a previous post, I'm still looking for just the right padded, push-up bra!
