Strapless Dress? Sleeves?

So, is your dress strapless? Does it have sleeves?
I decided this past weekend, that I'm going to wear the top portion of my dress (it's removable) for the ceremony.... and take it off for the reception.
Here's a pic:








I'm interested to see dresses, I feel like I haven't seen everyones! Does anyone not have a dress yet? Priscilla of Boston is on Rue La La on April 28th. IF they have my dress on there, I'm probably going to flip sh!t.

Re: Strapless Dress? Sleeves?

  • I really think the lacey top part is so pretty, glad you'll wear it for a bit! But I also LOVE it without it on you.  You will be gorgeous all day :)

    I need to take a photo of me in my dress. I have it, but FI is totally paranoid about seeing me in it, so I don't have a pic of ME in it.  Once I do, I'll post it here. :)  Mine is a tank style, the top of the straps is about an inch wide.  Strapless dresses just look... bad on me.  I don't know why!

    HAHA- I get that. I can't wait to see it on you.... I'm sure it is gorg.
    I can't even imagine when we all get to see each others photos from THAT day. How freaking exciting!!
    BTW: I gave you crap on MFP ;-)

  • Omg, I love the lacy part! That will be so cool to be able to have it for the ceremony, and then be able to make yourself more comfy for the dancing!!!

    Mine is strapless, and it has a shawl (that i didn't take a pic of, but it's the same fabric as the skirt) that i'll wear into the reception.

  • OMG- Love Muffins, so pretty. Love your dress.

    Jenna- What color sash will you be wearing?... and I cracked up at the comment about the camera being smarter than your mom. I have several of my mothers attempts to take a picture... they're hilarious.... like full finger action.

    My sash is wine. The camera thing was quite the debacle. She really thought she had all these pictures, and then we got home and she went to show my dad and there was nothing on it which of course lead to dramatics about how she's technologically incompetent (she may have a tendency to overreact). She finally calmed down when I told her it wasn't a big deal since I can't post pics of me in the dress anyway or FI will see it.

    Ha, yes, Lazaro.  Oh, and if Rue La La has your dress on sale, I'll have a heart attack with you on your behalf.  I just saw my dress on one of those pre-owned sites, made with pretty much my exact measurements, and even that gave me indigestion.
  • sarah...your dress is freaking GORG.  i love it.

    here's mine:  (strapless)






    I have also added a jeweled belt to jazz it up.  (PIB)
  • Everyone's dresses are so pretty!

    Here is mine: Strapless




    Not the best pic since this was taken in my bedroom (I am not as short as this pic makes me look Laughing)
  • My dress is stapless. My bridesmaids on the other hand have removable straps. I am letting each girl have the option. I guess I will see at the ceremon how many dresses are strappless and how many aren't

  • Mine is strapless with a sweetheart neckline.
    I love the top to your dress and that you have the option to remove it.

    Thank you. I will report back... if I'm still living....
    That is such a bummer. Like it's so much $$$, so much $$$ when I stop to think about how much it is, I go crazy. I can't think about it...

    Ahhh, I hope that I don't... you look beyond gorgeous in your dress, but you have the type of body that I feel like you could wear ANYTHING!

  • I love non-strapless gowns like yours Sarah!  I think they are stunning.  Unfortunately they aren't stunning on ME.

    I plan on buying a bolero or some sort of jacket just in case I get cold.  I haven't found the perfect one yet.

  • Natasha and Sue- love the detail on both of your dresses. Beautiful!
    Anniversary
  • I love your dress it is very pretty, and the lace part is gorgeous.  Mine is strapless. Im not doing sleeves or anything like that.   
  • Here is mine. The straps are removable, but I can't decide if I like them on, or off, or neither...I'm having a bit of dress anxiety. My FMIL made me a new sash that is sage green to match our wedding colors. 

    Here is a super goofy pic of me in the dress. It needs a bit of alteration for the short girl. Any suggestions regarding straps/no straps/shawl/something??

    I didn't think it would look good at all, and it still may not... haha... I don't know. In the picture of me, it's all twisted up. But, it looked better than the one that was 6 times to big on me on the sample I tried on... so we're gonna go with it. I hope I don't chicken out ;-)
    I saw some cute ones at Nordstrom!

  • Strapless!  Boy that pic is tiny....



    Sarah, WHY did you even mention POB on RueLala??? I can't even look, I will literally throw up if they had my dress.....

  • Ooh here's mine.  This is just the sample which was not even close to the correct size, lol, but gives you an idea.  Mine is strapless and does not have any kind of straps/sleeves etc.

  • Eveyones dresses are so pretty! Here is mine- strapless :)
