Dresses you loved vs Dress you purchased!

I was perusing through my pictures at dresses I tried on or dresses I wanted and was wondering how many of you got the dress you wanted or something totally different? Bonus if you have pictures!


I originally was going to order this dress online but once I talked to the consultant, I found out that this dress was not two toned in the back as it appears in the picture.

I tried on this dress at David's Bridal but it didn't make the cut.

This was the first dress I tried on and fell in love with but when I came back to purchase, they raised the price and it wasn't in my budget!

THIS IS THE DRESS I ENDED UP WITH THAT COMPLETELY STOLE MY HEART.

I purchased my 2 dream dresses and ended up with a boring champaigne that I kinda like. Basically it was a money thing. Luckily I am able to return the one dress I just bought because it really was just too big. The bride had altered it and made it much larger than a 24/26. It was closer to a 28/30.

I am now a 22/24.

I have me dream shoes but they are now the wrong color. They will be hidden from view by me dress so I may just wear them.

Errr I wish my silver dress fit me. It was perfect on everyway.

The first dress I found online at David's was the first one I tried on and FELL HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE WITH and wanted to stop right then and there.  However, my amazing consultant suggested that I try on a few more - my take on that.  I said okay, I'll try this one - didn't like it (it was gorgeous, but I couldn't get the first one out of my heart) and I asked if I could my first choice on again.  I put it on and started crying - that is when I knew that she was THE ONE!

This was at my first fitting. I didn't go with anyone when I first tried her on so I have no 'first" pictures.

LOL this is easy :) I ever wanted a dress made a spanish Alencon lace so I already knew long time before our wedding that my dress will be a bit pricy. I searched the internet for lace dresses and totally fallen in love with the Pronovias dresses (they are well known for their lace dresses here in Germany) especially ONE dress :) I called every Bridal shop in our area and the problem was that only one bridal shop in the area sold Pronovias. I asked them if they had this dress I liked in stock and they said yes. Only one left in size 36 and for half of the price (ok, still over $ 1,500.00 but worth it *lol*) - WTH - I made an appt directly for the next day and bought my dream dress on the same! It was the first I tried on and I complety fell in love with it also my Mom and my sister. But as with Becca that consultant suggested to try two or three other dresses (other styles and fabrics) but every dress looked so ugly on me... So I asked if I could try MY dress again and it took me on cloud nine :)


Here are pics from my fittings (unfortunately I haven't one from the first) and from our wedding :) It's the Pronovias Malaga <3

@Idoagain - I am sure you are going to look beautiful!!! And sorry you couldn't get the shoes you wanted in the color you wanted! My dress was so long no one saw my shoes!


@Ashley - I originally wanted a ball gown until I tried it on and looked like a crocheted toilet topper. Lol. I can't wait for your day to get here!


@Elle - You looked great in all the dresses you tried on but your purchase is beyond GORGEOUS!!! I love your dress so much!!!


@Kathrin - You look like a dream in your dress! Just spectacular!


@Khrystena - I wanted that dress too from Alfred Angelo but when I went to the stores to try it on, they didn't have that model. You are going to look amazing!

aaaaaah tressy a crocheted tolet topper omg you are so funny.


 


i first wanted a very similar dress to the one ashley wanted. like the one from funny face. then i wanted the white chiffon dress grace kelly wears in cath thief. could not find any of these styles though in a good quality. ..... and then ended up with this dress....


at last the only thing that was clear from the start was that it would have been simple and elegant

The first time I ever THOUGHT of a wedding dress, I fell in love with this beauty:


The first time I photo 3441730-1


However, when it came time for me to actually make a decision, it came down to these:


The first time I photo 3441730-2The first time I photo 3441730-3


and


The first time I photo 3441730-4The first time I photo 3441730-5


I loved how both were chiffon with sleeves; the first one had the Jane Austen feel I desired, but the second was just so pretty.  However, I was unsure of how low cut the front looked, and I was afraid that the ruching around the middle would have been unflattering on me.  As you can see, this was my choice:

Nicole you look regal and chic. I can't see you in another dress! And yes. I looked horrible in the ball gown and had to laugh at myself. Short overstuffed crocheted toilet topper!

Christina you chose the right dress! I love Jane Austen and you pulled off Emma splendidly!

Well, they invited me to a bridal fashion show a few weeks later. They had a drawing. AND I WON MY FREAKING DRESS! I love it. It was everything I didn't realize I was looking for.

oh my gooood, it looks AMAZING on you!! See, I think part of the "cupcake" feel was I had a HUGE crini on, which SaBelle PROBABLY doesn't need on all her voluptuous glory...
