Me and my maid of honor were messing around online last night, looking at dresses (yes, everytime I think I'm sure of one, I see another I want to try on).

 

We found this dress, and my first impression was that its horrendous. But she blew up the pic, and we kept picking it apart, and ended up saying that we both that it could look really unique and kinda cool. But I still don't think I'd be brave enough to wear it. The "straw" thingy's coming out of the top...those would need to be leveled off even with the bodice. Looks like a scarecrow this way.

 

Anyway, tell me if my judgement is just truly off or does anyone else think this is kinda cute in a wierd, strange kind of way. Our accent color is gold, so maybe thats why I'm even looking at this thing.

I think it's beautiful but definetly without the boning coming out of the corset. The detail is ever so subtle and goes perfect with the softness of the skirt. One thing to consider is that the bodice might be slightly sheer, but it could work if you're okay with that, it would be great for a beach wedding. The skirt almost looks like those wrap around beach skirts- love it. Do you have a link to the site? If it goes with your colors then you should give it a try it. Oh and show us pictures!

I think you need to try it on. If you look at the different parts of the dress on their own, it doesn't look so good, but if you look at the whole dress i think it looks rather good, the dress does grow on you. I do totally agree about cutting the straw/boned bits to keep inline with the top of the dress. They just look strange as if the dress has been forgotton to be finished off.

 

If you do try it on, we need pics.

I totally think you should try it on. I would try it on for sure. You never know, you might love it. You also might hate it. You just never know till you try it.

You know what? I like it (with top part evened off). I love the way it drapes. If your colors include gold it will really accentuate them. It's definitely worth an in-person look to see what you think. I like dresses that don't look like every other dress out there, and this is very unique.

Ya, I thought about the fact that the bodice is so sheer. With my dark skin, that could be a little much, so I'd probably have to wear a bridal corset underneath....which is always a plus anyway. I hate strapless bras (don't think they do anything to help the situation if ya KWIM), so that might be a better option any how.

And I ABSOLUTELY agree about the "V" in back. Would have to have it altered in SOME wayto close that up, because I agree that it makes it look like it was too small to zip all the way.

The dress is made by an Ebay bridal designer. She is good about working with you if you don't like it, and will do the alterations according to your measurements. Its just a hassle sending the dress back if you don't like it (did that once before already), but if you give it back without purchasing any from her, you lose 30%, which isn't bad because the dresses are vey reasonable. If you want the info/name, just pm me. She sends them fast, I got the first one I tried the third day after ordering it.

It IS one of those things that I like the more I look at it. I initially seen something in it that made me look closer, so it definitely catches the eye. You're all right though, I won't know til I try it on, and losing 20-30 bucks is worth it if I choose not to buy any of them since they are so reasonable anyway.

So try it on and if you still have doubts if it's unique or "ugly" go with something you think is 100% gorgeous.
I agree with that advice. My first dress was too casual. When i put it on I didn't feel happy. I just felt worried that it wasn't quite right. So I think when you try something on & don't really know how you feel, it's not right. Now that i look at pictures of me in my first dress I know it was all wrong. Is this a dress you can try on or would you have to order it?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
