I adore this dress on you. I love how it has the elegance of lacy top, but stil a fun floofy bottom (I went for the floofy bottom too, it just feel "Spanish-y" to me!  Glad your mind is at ease, you look stunning

I found my dress the 2nd time out....nothing that I was looking for.  It's a Paloma Blanca #4115.  I recently started to doubt my choice until I saw some of the girls on here with similar dress styles who recently tied the knot which put my mind & heart at ease.  I will repost a picture.

Here's my dress!!! My mom and aunt would not let me take any pictures of myself in it because they KNEW I would show everyone.  This picture does not do it ANY justice!  I cannot wait to wear it in August!  Being that my dress has been discontinued, it is very hard to find pics off it on the internet but I found one to share with you ladiesssss! smile123.gif

Like seriously, was dreaming about it all that night!  And they had it, off the rack, in my size and in ivory, which matches his linen suit PERFECTLY!  You can't help but think it was meant to be =)  The plan is to take in the top ever so slightly, shorten the length a bit (for sandals/barefoot in the sand), and shorten or just totally remove the train (it's partially tucked under in the photo).

 

I think it was totally meant to be. The dress is gorgeous!

The structure of the dress also plays a large role in fit.  My gown did not lace up in the back but the boning and structure gave me a nice tight fit.  I am sure that you will feel tight but not too tight!  cheesy.gif

I'm actually suprised at how many women on here prefer lace ups. I could only imagine how well they fit, I never tried one on so I dont know. I am hoping though that my dress creates that skin tight feel too.

I am positive that this is the one, but I need moms approval !

Same thing happened to me. I never guessed I'd ever wear anything strapless...and that's what I got too! I also swore I'd never buy my dress from David's Bridal....which I did as well. It just goes to show, you really don't know until you try different kinds of styles. I thought I wanted a flowy dress too...and when I put them on, it looked like a nightgown on me. I needed the structure. LOVE the new choice....congrats!
