Beautiful!! Go for it!! And I agree with saying yes to the belt too! I remember thinking that I had to have a certain type of dress that was "more suited for the beach" going by different people's opinions in the beginning of the dress shopping, but then I felt super limited in the style options and couldn't find anything that I liked, much less loved. And then I found my perfect dress - which I bought over a year and a half before the wedding - and never looked back because I knew it was perfect for me and the wedding I wanted - beach or no beach :) So I am a firm believer that it is all about how it makes you feel and you shouldn't have to limit your options just because you are having a beach wedding. And you should be every bit of confident in that dress because it looks amazing on you! And after all was said and done I loved the fact that I had some poof and a train - even though a lot of people might have thought it was kind of crazy, I can't help but feel that it came out that much more beautiful (I'm sure I'm a little biased lol) - but the point is that it is your wedding day and your dream to come true... go with your heart!

@GingerBride This dress looks amazing on you!!! Definitely love the belt, adds a little sparkle. My dress is totally not beachy either so don't let those thoughts of "I should wear a beachy dress" sway you!! It's your day, wear what makes you feel beautiful!

@acw271011 thank you so much!!  It's a Stella York.  I was able to order it but it is now discontinued!!   I am so lucky as I don't think I would have loved any other dress as much as this one :)


I am a huge fan of the Stella York dresses.  They are so pretty and they have really good structure for the curvier girl :)

@youngandinlove thank you :)  Welcome to the message boards of so many giddy girls getting ready to marry the man of their dreams!  lol


I have been "creeping" the boards a long time now but only recently have I started to really post.  I notice that there are so many helpful ladies here.  So post away!

To everyone else who put in their vote - Thanks!!!  means so much to me to hear that I am choosing the right gown!  I just love it and I don't think I could imagine wearing another dress.  I will go shopping for a nice blinged out belt/slash this weekend :)

You should comment! I lurked for awhile before posting but you get even more out of the site once you start interacting with all the lovely brides. Everyone is super supportive, nice and helpful!
