Show us your wedding dress!

Recommended Posts


ckrn - your dress is beautiful and looks great on you!! 

 

MsBliss - your dress is gorgeous too. I love the ruffles and the deep sweetheart. I like either the side pony or the up do. both show off your lovely neckline and make you look nice and tall(er


Choco - your dress is so sophisticated and unique - love it!!! I think I'd leave the shoulder - it makes a nice diagonal line with the pleating under the bust and then up over the other shoulder.

So couture looking!  Love it!  I say keep the shoulder strap...it compliments the dress so well!

Absolutely love your dress!!  What a fantastic choice you made!  I think hair to the side with a flower to show off your neck and shoulders :)

It needs some fitting around the top where it is to big, but I love it. Now I need to decide what to do with my hair. Up, down, side pony, veil/ flower?? No idea - time to move to the hair forum....But I do love the dress! Can't wait until it's tailored & we are on the beach with professional photos! :)

Absolutly gorgeous! If I didn't already have a dress I would totally want yours ! as for strap or no strap, I think it all depends on your figure. Some people look better in strapless and some look better with a one shoulder strap. Who is the designer by the way?

Thanks for the input and compliments ladies. This Dress is by Alvina Valenta.  I love the attention to detail and construction of her dresses. I am definitely amoung the 30% of women who purchased a dress that was consistant with what they originally envisioned...All 3 dresses that i ultimately chose between were ones that I had went into the bridal stores with pictures of.

Thank you for all of the compliments. You are all so sweet. I am leaning towards the side pony with curls & a flower with netting. We'll be on the beach & the flower (even if fake) will look nice and tropical. I'm so excited I could explode. Thanks again!

LOL. When does it come in? I got a call this weekend saying my dress was in so I'll be posting pics of it soon! I'm super excited...it's been 6 months!
