     i would HIGHLY recommend the Alfred Angelo 2219! I fell in love with this dress the second I started looking around online for wedding dresses but unfortunately I could not find it in any stores near me! Here are pictures of it both with the bottom and without! PERFECT for destination!!

     



    Has anyone tried the "convertible dress" trend? I love the idea of having a long/traditional dress for the ceremony that converts to a shorter cocktail style for the reception. I know David's has one and I have seen a few others - just wondering if anyone had any experience and/or opinions.

        This dress is awesome! It's the first convertible dress I have seen that I would actually wear. Many of them lack that bridal feel but this is just too cute without the bottom and elegant with it. I agree- it is destination perfect. 

         

        I am waiting to hear back from my salon. I am a New Yorker and my dress was purchased in a store in Massapequa in an area that was devastated by Hurricane Sandy. I am keeping my fingers crossed that my dress hasn't suffered any damage. With all the loss and devastation I know its a miniscule worry that pales in comparison, but I'd be lying if I said it didn't cross my mind.


        Happily married to the love of my life- since July 5, 2013

            Well my dress arrived last week!  I went to the bridal shop Saturday to inspect, try it on and pay off the balance.  I ordered it 9 months ago and was about 5 lbs lighter (maybe a few inches less, too!).  When they measured me back in January, they wanted to order me the size 10.  I asked to order a size 12 instead since I know coming off the summer I am a bit heavier and would rather have more to work with then not enough as far as alterations go.  Thank goodness I did because the size 12 fit almost perfectly, a little bit too snug for my comfort, but I am not use to wearing form fitting dresses/gowns like this.  And I know I hope to lose those 5 lbs and a few inches between now and the wedding.  There will be a few alterations needed, like perhaps an inch on the hem and an eyelet hook on the back which ironically once was not sewn into the dress.

             

            I gotta say I have been so happy about my dress choice all these months, but ironically this past Saturday I had some doubt...I was even a tiny bit sad.  I have no clue what came over me...hours later I felt better about my choice after looking at the pics, but that initial thought of doubt scared me.  Maybe it was just all the excitement and build up to that day...who knows!  I just wish that did not happen initially.  :-(

             

            I had ordered an accessory belt to bling up the dress a bit.  I was planning to tie as a bow in the back and not sew/attach to the dress.  However, now I am unsure.  My Mom & Nanny seem to think the dress alone, without the belt, is the way to go.  Mom thought the bow took away from the beauty of the back of the dress.  My best friend thought the bling of the belt was "me" and perhaps sew the belt onto the dress, bling in front, however, no bow in back, just sew the ribbon to back of dress to the center zipper.

             

            My other girlfriend thought the bow in the back was simple and romantic.  Now I am on the fence.  I was looking to have the belt and match my jewelry with it.  Just some hanging earrings and a bracelet (no necklace since I'd have the bling of the belt).  Also, no veil, just a tropical flower in my hair.

             

            I would love any input you ladies may have.  Here are pics from Saturday with and without the belt/bow.  Thanks girls! xoxo

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

            So pretty! It looks great on you!

                    Oh EVKnowsitall - I sure hope the news is good about your dress!!!  What a terrible tragedy in NY/NJ...my heart breaks for all those people who are suffering.  I am a New Yorker as well (upstate)...so this really hits home for all of us.  Although worrying about the dress pales in comparison - of course you hope your dress is okay - it's your dream dress...of course you worry - nothing wrong with that!  ;-)  Keep us posted.  xoxo
