    This is a good question. I originally wanted a short dress and this was one of the reasons why. I ended up with a long one though... but it is pretty light. I am curious what previous brides will have said.

      This is my wedding dress I purchased from Kleinfelds.  It's a Lazaro and it was absolutely beautiful with tons of beaded detail. Loved it!  I need an excuse to wear it again!

      Posted Image Just picked out this bridesmaid dress. Honestly hardest thing to have girls agree on everything and finding a dress that can look good on all different body types! They plan on wearing some sort of belt with their dress.

      Hi Joanne,

       

      Yes, I would. It was about what looked best on me, and what made me feel beautiful. I tried on a number of the lighter weight "destination" dresses, and they just weren't flattering for my body type. I was hot and sweaty dancing at the reception - it just didn't matter to me. I wanted to enjoy every second of the party, and I did! 

       

      My advice is to find the dress you love, and embrace every bit of it. You can always take a break to freshen up, or cool off for a few minutes. Take some blotter paper with you in your bride bag, and some extra make up to do a quick fix. Then get back to that party and enjoy it.

        Hi Vanessa,

         

        No, I didn't do the trash the dress, just a few shots on the beach before sunset.  Thank you so much!  One of the best days of my life. :)

          Thanks for the advice Allie.  I'm going dress shopping next weekend so I will just see what looks best.  Ultimately, I would like to find a dress with a detachable train.  That may solve everything!

              Check out the Alfred Angelo style #2219... its a long dress with a detachable bottom and it is gorgeous! Then you would get the best of both worlds!

                How long did it take to come and did it look well tailored? I want to replicate my actual gown for a TTD and I heard a few brides say they got dresses from China. My wedding is July 5th and we leave on July 3rd- so do you think I will have the time?


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