I was on a very strict budget, so I only shopped at David's Bridal. I looked at Alfred Angelo once, but that was the only other store I even considered. I didn't care much about the fabric quality as long as it looked pretty! There was a lot of drama surrounding my dress choice, but basically, I had to return the one I bought originally because my mom and husband hated it, so I exchanged it for this one, which was about $550. I added a halter strap because I didn't want a strapless dress. The year I got married, EVERYONE had a strapless dress, and I wanted to do something a little different.

I just got mine today (after looking at this thread a few days ago for information, so I thought I'd share)!

This is Maggie Sottero's Carrie style in Ivory. I would never have considered it before trying it on, but I realized the ruched styles were really flattering on me, and then I tried it on and... it was the one. :love: Link: http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?style=J1287

It was on clearance for $300, which was great because I had a limited budget (I don't want to spend so much money on a dress that's just for one day... but I also wanted to feel beautiful and glamorous, since I'd be looking at these pictures for a long time, so I was willing to spend over $100). The corset back made it fit perfectly without needing further alterations (I'm quite busty for my size, so for zipper/button dresses I had to go up two sizes to zip over my bust, but then they swamped me in waist and hip). I don't need to do any alterations at all (I'm only 5'3", but I'm wearing 4 inch heels (platforms-- they are quite comfortable), and with a mermaid petticoat it is just the right length)!

The pictures are candid and taken in the bridal shop, so the poses aren't the best. I felt so pretty in this dress, and like it flattered every part of my figure, and the ruching details made it feel more unusual. I never thought I'd end up with a strapless, but I totally love it and feel completely supported without any foundation garments!

My dress was Melissa Sweet Mila. I think the original price is about $4,000, but I bought the sample for $1975. My original budget for a dress was $1500, but I ended up being much pickier about the fabric quality than I thought I would be.

I love love LOVED it, not sure what to do with it now though! Anyone want a wedding dress :tongue: ??

My dress was a Casablanca dress, but it was from the previous season, so it was on super sale. I only paid $690 for it. I wish that was me in the pics, but, alas, my photog really didn't get any really good dress shots!

Tuckins!!!! Your dress was stunning! I wish I knew about Casablanca I paid the same for mine and it wasn't as flattering.

I was also a Casablanca bride. The dress was around $500 purchased online from some place in FL. Alternations from my local taylor were included in that price.

It was a beautiful dress till my mother stepped on the back of it and ripped my bustle so I had to carry my skirt around for the remainder of the wedding...it did not help that my mother and I were not on very good speaking terms that day either :rolleyes:

The one they had sent from NYC to my salon was a size 0. There are only about 8 people in the world that could actually fit in it. LOL

I don't have finished pics of mine but its almost an entirely custom 3 piece set. Its being made in new york and I am almost completely trusting them to make it to my specifications and proper size, since it will be nearly impossible to alter.


Whenever I tell friends this they assume I am spending a FORTUNE (3000-10000) but I am getting it for $500 I'll post pictures once they either send me some or I get the dress

That's lovely - very belle epoque! Are you getting the white or cream? Will you be using the very romantic theme for your wedding decor as well?

Hi! I ordered it in the cream, and yes to the romantic theme! Vintage romance all the way! Here is the door for our altar - to be decorated with flower wreaths. There will be another one just like it over by the cake area. The wedding is at our house (lots of land with a beautiful mountain and valley view - that my fiancee and I both grew up looking at. We grew up 1.1 miles apart and live in the house his father built. lol) Found the doors at a local antique place. They are SO big (9.5' tall) and SO heavy. I just love them... The other picture is the one I'd seen that inspired the door hunt. After seeing it, and knowing we could add an autumn mountain view to it, I couldn't see anything else being as perfect. And...another pic of the dress..because..well..I can't stop looking at it. LOL
