Show us your wedding dress!

I think the dress is beautiful and you look beautiful in it.  Don't change it.

What do you guys think? Is this dress too formal/got too much going on for a beach wedding? I only tried on a few dresses before buying this one, so maybe I'm just freaking out now that the wedding's closer and I haven't yet lost those 15lbs I was planning on dropping :)

Wow....everyone, literally, looks fantastic in their dresses.  I haven't even started looking yet! I wanted to go in November, but I see some of you brides bought your dresses a year in advance.  I'm scared...lol!!!!! Everyone looks amazing.

Hey Cokonlove, I had a different wedding date of March 2013. When I went dress shopping in April they told me it would take the designer 8 months to produce the dress. I guess it depends on who is making the dress but the window of time to shop varies for each bride so don't be scared! But try to book an appointment soon- just in case you fall in love with a dress and they tell you it takes a long time to make. They told me some brides feel a year is too soon but the more time on your side the better because you have more options. Plus- it definitely was my favorite part of the process. We went to a Sunday sangria brunch to celebrate after! Some brides get anxiety over dress shopping. My fiend has been twice and says she hasn't seen anything she likes, so giving yourself ample time Is best.

I just went early because me, my bm, moh and both moms all live in different places, and we could all be in one place last weekend, which is extremely rare. I had just intended to start looking, figuring I would look now, and then again in a few weeks I could go on my own if need be... no rush. Well, then it turns out that the sample sale gown I had on was phenomenal! 

So, I had not intended to buy so early... but it certainly looks like I will be!

not sure if i commented yet but i absolutely LOVE this dress.... the way the material sort of goes sideways, the sweetheart neckline and the dropped waist remind me of mine and just got me so excited to put my dress on again. sometimes i still wonder if  i should keep looking but then i saw this pic and im like wow i LOVEEEE it and then i realize its similar to mine lol are u going with the long veil ? i bought one also but now im afraid its really not beachy.. not sure if i should stick with it... heres mine on the model, give me your opinions baout the long veil please ;)

Ok. Love this dress! That skirt is amazing! As for the veil, I think it would work, but I think it also depends on how you'll have your hair, and also your height. Don't ask me why height matters, but I'm 5'1 and when I put a veil on it made me look so so short! Visually it didn't work

lol. Thanks!

 

I was thinking the same thing. I think what sets us apart as brides here is that we are doing what fits us best. In terms of wedding locations and not trying to fit in with the norms. That seems to transition to the dresses that are on here as well.

 

Yes it is around the corner. I'm excited. But I swear I feel like I'm not completely prepared. lol

Nothing worse than an ill fitting dress. A lot of times the styles we think look good on us don't and its better to let go of preconceived notions and go with what suits our shape and personality.

 

Congrats to all the gorgeous brides on finding the one...twice in life lol

Thanks for the advice.  I am that bride with the anxiety of a wedding dress because I went to one store and was just looking at dresses in a bag and started having heart palpitations...lol!!!!  I will make an appointment to go very soon.   I just wanted to get my save the dates out in the mail.  I guess I can stop stalling now.
