So, most of you know I've worked in bridal for close to 3 years. I always thought choosing a dress would be hard, but it's turned out to be fairly easy for me! I'm unsure which sash I'm going to do. I think I'll end up going with a simple ivory satin or grosgrain ribbon instead of the beaded sash.

On with the pics!

:bigsmile:

I will probably wear my sister's veil, which is similar to what I'm wearing in the pictures. Shorter, two layer, no beading or edging... Just very simple.

My hair will be half up/half down and curled. I know, I know, with this dress I should have my hair back, but I just HATE how I look with my hair pulled back and I never feel as "dressy" with an updo. I'm a weirdo.

It's actually two pieces. The dress is by Enzoani, called Diana. I'm also getting the jacket, which I'll take off for the party part of the reception-- it's made by Pronovias!

I'm so glad you all like it! I'm so old fashioned, I about died when we got the jacket in!

::Blushing:: thank you!! I've always had a pretty curvy figure, and I decided rather than hide it under a ballgown, I might as well show it off!

I love your dress, and it looks fabulous on you. I would definitely go for the beaded sash. It brings attention (in the oh-so-right-way)
to your curves!

I have to say, maybe it's the PS'er in me, but I do like the bit of bling on the sash! ;)) You look stunning!

Beautiful! Since I'm facing my 22nd anniversary next month, I don't find myself in BWW much, either, so thanks for making that mistake!

I love everything about your dress (but maybe I'm a bit biased, as it's kind of an updated version of my own: more form fitting, no eighties 'puff' shoulders-though mine were small for the time-and I didn't have a train, I'm too claustrophobic.)

Congratulations. You are going to be a beautiful bride.

Ok, if I didn't have a dress already, I'd be getting that one.

I love it.

Oh wow! What a dress! It's gorgeous!

Now, if you'd told me before that a lace dress with sleeves could be totally hot, I'd never have believed it. But there it is. Good job!

Now I've just gotta find some awesomely tall shoes so I don't look like a shortie drowning in lace!

Thank you all for your sweet compliments! I know it's DEFINITELY not everybody's style and some may think it's matronly, but it's so me.

Gorgeous! Where was that dress when I was looking 5 years ago? So the lace sleeves are part of the jacket then? It has such a classic, almost vintage feel to it.

Yep! It buttons up the back, so you can't tell that it's not part of the dress, but I'm not locked in to wearing sleeves all night. Here is a picture of a model wearing it with a different dress

You managed to make that dress look both sexy and demure at the same time. Way to go on pulling that off! Isn't that what we all want on our wedding day? And you did it!

Wow wow wow! What a fabulous dress! If we weren't having a beach wedding this is definitely something I could see myself in.
