Close up of the lace. The lace is what caught my eye, and I love 3/4 sleeves.

Now I am not usually a fan of sleeves because they remind me so much of the 1980s, and early 90s, but this dress really is BEAUTIFUL!

Very timeless! I love the low scooped neckline. The scoop would look beautiful in the back as well!

I love it!

Love the front, but I''d modify the back also. I don''t find the back attractive as is.

It is made by Blue Enzoani Arlington. It is on Bestbridalprices for $1,200...I got it for only $300!

My offer was accepted, I''m so excited!!! The funny thing is, I had actually bought another gown, but I keep going back to being self-conscious about wearing white. Of course it doesn''t hurt that the first gown needs some extensive alterations as it falls right off of me (despite having sleeves!) and it would need to be taken up at the waist by about 4 inches (might ruin the shape). So, I''ll resell it.

I''ve worn a style of dress similar to this with the ruching at the waist, and the open neckline is very flattering to me, so I know it will look good. I can''t wait to see it in person. I''m not crazy about the back of the skirt because it is so plain, but I love that the back is solid lace. I can always have a piece put into the inside of the dress so that it appears you can see through the lace, but it will hide my tatoo. I''m not crazy about bridal gowns without sleeves. I''ll be 40 by the time we get married, and not everyone looks good (or feels confident) in strapless gowns. Besides, the wedding is late October, and we planned for an outdoor ceremony. The sleeves and having fabric on my back are a definite must-have for me!

I like the sleeves. Wedding dress styles come and go. Notice how ALL the dresses are strapless/sleeveless now? Will it be that way in ten years? I doubt it. Your dress looks classic and romantic and I love it!

The gown should be here sometime this week. I''m so excited!!! The other gown I had gotten was really pretty, but kinda boring (simple ballgown style, long sleeves, tired design). As soon as I saw this one I knew it was my style, and I''d regret not going for it. Now the hunt for shoes and veil begins!

Very pretty gown. What a great find! I''d be in trouble if I had to find a dress these days. I would be so uncomfortable with no sleeves and nothing on my back. (I feel that way about regular clothes too, though.) That dress looks like it would be very flattering.

Will you post photos of you trying it on when it arrives? The style is very pretty, I love lace on wedding dresses.

It is made by Blue Enzoani Arlington.
Correction: It is the "Arlington" style from the 2008 Blue Collection by Enzoani. Whew, that''s a mouthful!

Yay - How exciting, Wink''s Elf! That is a beautiful gown ... I would love to see pictures with you in it!!
While I was looking from my dress everytime I saw a long sleeve gown, I kept on meaning to point it out to you and just never did. I always thought of you though.
I''m glad you found your dream dress!
