Show us your wedding dress!

Recommended Posts

i just got this dress - i am in love! it's not quite white/ivory, sort of a more silvery color (like the one in the second pic, which is making me re-think our wedding colors) but i LOVE IT! Reem Acra Twist Front Gown with Jeweled Sleeves Reminiscent of the Oscar dress that Olivia Wilde wore one year... I <3 the H-E-doublehockeysticks out of this dress!!! <3 Olivia_Wilde.Reem_Acra.jpg  
Wow, what a stunning dress. I'd love to see a picture of it on you. Absolutely beautiful!

What a great beach dress!  I tried on something similar at this one salon that was like "you can't buy any of our dresses because you are having a beach weddding."  It was a great beach dress but I just can't rock it.  Too bad because it is beautiful!

Really?? What do they mean by that? I hope you found another bridal salon.

I did find another bridal salon.   That one place was just so rude and was like "our dresses are too heavy for a beach wedding."  The only dress they said I could really wear was a dress similar to the one I commented on.  It was BEAUTIFUL but I just had such a bad time at that salon. 

 

In other words, my point was that that dress is beautiful and a great beach wedding dress (the salon showed me photos of other DW brides wearing that dress or a similar one and everyone looked beautiful).

 I can't believe that people would be so flat out rude! The bride should be the judge of what is too heavy and what is not. Thank goodness you found a better bridal salon! Happy planning! :)

I said yes to the dress! For the third time... I bought two other dresses that I later decided I didn't like. The first one I luckily caught before they'd started making the dress, so I got a full refund. I'll lose at least my deposit on dress #2 (have to call the shop to ask them). But that's OK because the third time's a charm and this one I love! It's a Jim Hjelm that I got at a store in LA that has huge discounts on dresses (up to 75% off) because they're samples directly from the designers. Great for your wallet, not so great if you're not exactly a sample size! I will definitely need to kick my workouts/weight loss plan into serious gear the next 8 months before the wedding so it's not crazy tight like it is in this pic, but here you go! http://www.jlmcouture.com/Jim-Hjelm/Bridal/Spring/2012/Style-8208 LL
Absolutely gorgeous
