I've spent the last few months looking at dresses online trying to get an idea of what I might like for Mexico in October. With everything we've been through with surgeries and hospital stays, I want hubby's jaw to drop.

 

I have sort of an idea of what I think I might like. I was curious about some of the knockoff sites that are talked about here so decided to take a look. I went through dressilyme and found this. Obviously with that site the designer isn't mentioned at all and they use their own numbering system.

 

Does anyone recognize the background of the picture or the designer? I haven't seen anything like it before but it puts together pretty much everything I'm looking for. I adore the keyhole back style and the layers in the skirt. It's very likely way out of the range that I'm willing to pay but I would still like to try and find out who makes it.

 

Thanks ladies!!

@acw271011 that is a gorgeous dress. I'll keep my eyes peeled for you to see if I can help. I'll go through my many wedding-related instagram accounts and hopefully it will be there :)

I did a reverse Google image search of one of the images you posted.  Looks like it's Bonita by Kitty Chen:

Oh my gosh!!! How did you do that??? That's awesome!! it's exactly right. I've never even heard of Kittychen! Which probably means it will be waaaaaay more than I'm willing to spend!

 

Thank you pykx82!  Ok ladies - so next question! Is something like that too much for the terrace at Azul Fives? I would want the train shortened. That's definitely a bit too much but I'm in love with the rest of it or at least a similar style!

I dont think it is too much at all. My dress is similar to the one pictured here and I personally dont think it is too much for my wedding. It is your wedding day, you should feel beautiful, and if this dress makes you feel beautiful then it is just perfect!

@acw271011 I don't think it's too much at all!  I was worried about that when I found my dress (http://www.maggiesot...keywordType=All) but the consultant at the store said that the old rules for destination wedding dresses don't seem to apply anymore.  Evidently brides are just wearing what they like, which is great!

 

One thing to consider is how hot you might be.  I'm going to have some crinolines removed from mine so there's not so much business around my legs, and I'll probably get a short party dress for after dinner when we head to the disco.

 

Other than that, you should wear whatever makes you feel amazing!

aww you ladies are all so sweet and I appreciate the encouragement. The thing is we're already married. This is more of a vow renewal/celebration of life deal just because of some stuff we've been through and as much as I want his jaw to drop I don't want to be too far over the top. I agree about taking some of the crinoline type stuff out to tone it down a little. lol the main thing now is to try to find out what it costs!!!

@acw271011 - I agree with @pykx82...your day your rules.  I'm having a classic black & white wedding (he in a black tux and me in a more traditional wedding gown w/ modest train) even though we are getting married in Mexico on a sky deck overlooking the beach.  Go with what makes you feel amazing & fits your vision.
