I agree!  Pick the dress you want, that makes you feel good and that you want to wear.  The dress I got would not work at many venues, but perfect for a DW in Mexico!  My fiance has always wanted me to wear a backless dress and what better time than our wedding!  This is my dress (minus the strap in the back)....

 
 
 

 

 

 

LOVE that dress.  I had hoped to do a backless dress as well, but I realized quite quickly that a) they are hard to find in Calgary in my price range and B) most are sheath which don't necessarily flatter my body!

 

Jealous!

Ugh - I'm going to go to sleep fantasizing about your dress @Sabes44 (is that weird...haha?) I was trying to save money in the dress category (under $1,000) but I may need to reconsider now! :)

 

I hope you had good dreams about the dress @becky98.  Honestly I never thought I would spend more than $1,000 on a dress but once I saw this one, I knew it was it (before even trying it on!).  There are site's where girls resell their dresses after their wedding.  I saw a few Katie May's on there too, might be an option for a lower price point!

I agree with all of you, pick the dress you love, not what people think you should wear! Everyone showed me typical DW wedding dresses and they were so not me! I wanted ruffles and a dro waist! I ended up with a gorgeous dress that I love that I am slightly terrified about dragging a mountain of sand behind me, but whatever. I'm an allure girl as well, dress is in the link!

@alwalters625 Dress is beautiful! @Sabes44 Love your dress also! It definitely does look perfect for a DW! 

 

Has anyone ever done any major alterations to their dresses? Anything like changing the shape in the front to changing the style in the back? I love my dress just wondering if I should do anything else to it to make pop even more. Love the idea of a more open back! Not sure if it's a good idea to do any major changes to a dress

 You could talk to a seamstress. I'm changing my back from a zipper and tiny little buttons to a corset. i'm sad to see the buttons go because they look really cute but I like corset backs too. I want to see if I can get anyone who does the corset with the eyelets rather than the loops. I think it looks nicer and the chances of one of those loops coming out when under all that pressure is lower. Who knows, I guess it depends how much the price difference between the two is. I know you can alter the shape of your strapless neckline as well, say from a straight strapless to sweetheart or something like that or add little cap sleeves, etc.

I too started with the chiffon flowing but it wasn't my style. Instead I fell in love with a Maggie Sottero Dress... I'm going with beach elegance. I love it and although it's not a typical beach dress, I think it will perfect for us. Good luck ladies. attachment=29266:ImageUploadedByTapatalk1409428176.623289.jpg]

@TinkerSofi I'm guessing this types of changes wouldn't be like a typical bridal shop alteration and I would have to look for a seamstress elsewhere? That sounds lovely what you will be doing to your dress!

I'm sure any bridal store or seamstress could do a corset.
