Show us your wedding dress!

Recommended Posts

@@Lia33 - gorgeous!!!!! 

 

This is my dress (so far lol) Hopefully I upload this correctly! 

 


My opinion is that your tattoo is part of you, and there's no reason to hide it. It's totally a preference. Try on some backless dresses and see what you think. if you don't like it, then cover it up with a different dress. Don't make a decision without trying on dresses and seeing how you feel in them. 

 

 

 

Beautiful
I still haven't chose my dress and I love the idea of a backless dress. The only thing that puts me off is I have a tattoo right down my spine and tbh I dunno if it's a bit tacky if this was to be shown. What yous think??

 

 

See I'm the opposite. I don't like tattoos showing. Just my preference though

@@AllieH Although I think my dress is really pretty, I'm totally having the urge to check out this other bridal shop. 

 

@@Pablou It's totally a preference thing. I have a couple of tattoos also but I would prefer not to show them on my wedding day. Show what you're comfortable showing!

I just bought my dress for my wedding! Since it's a beach wedding and a 2nd marriage for me and my fiance, we aren't going very formal. I purchased an Alfred Angelo bridesmaid's dress- their styles can be ordered in ivory (and white, etc) so it makes it easy to use them as less-formal wedding dresses. I'll post the pic- it's in purple, but I ordered it in Ivory. I'll try to post the ivory one, too, but in the pic you can't tell that the layers are chiffon, not satin. My fiance will be in khaki colored slacks and a nice ivory/ white button-down shirt.

I think it's beautiful and you won't even be able to tell it's a BMs dress. That's the beauty of weddings, there is SO much variety. I considered a shorter dress, but then when I got to shopping I had forgotten about it and never tried one on.

 

Second marriage or not, I think it all comes down to who you are and your style!  I also have a pretty basic wedding dress in comparison to others, but I love it and that's all that matters.

@@Lia33 I really like your dress! I suggest that you don't keep looking around. I totally feel cheated out of the experience because I went to 3 stores and found it haha. I know brides who shop around for months and they still can't find anything. I really don't know what's better but sometimes I feel like going to see more dresses just to make sure there is nothing else I would like more. Then I remember I love my dress and shopping around would only confuse me more. 

 

@@spjwedding ahah I did the same thing! comparing dresses now vs. the first few ones that were posted back in 2010. Styles do change quite a bit.

@@Lia33 LOVE your dress! Gorgeous! Still searching after you have a dress can certainly get complicated. I think your dress is perfect for you but YOU certainly have to be in love/content with it.

My sister offered me her dress from 18 years ago. I almost died when she sent me pictures of it. Sorry, it was hot back then but not anymore LOL!!!  She knows it, she can't believe she even wore it.

 

I wouldn't keep shopping as you will only confuse yourself. And think of your budget - is there room for 2 dresses in there?  Just maybe keep putting yours back on so you can remind yourself why you got it.   I have mine at home so I can do this periodically.  LOVE being in it!

    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned. 
    • My daughter is getting married in Punta Cana on May 23rd, 2020. The hotel is charging a fortune for centerpieces that I can make it easily. I need a contact of wholesale florist please. To buy directly. If anyone could help I appreciate
