AW: I bought my dress :-D

But not the one I posted a couple weeks ago.  I realized that the first one I liked just didn't fit in with the feel we are trying to go for with our wedding, which is classic and romantic.  I tried on this dress last time as well and I just couldn't stop thinking about it.  I also think it's a perfect fit for 'classic and romantic'.  So here's the dress I did buy and I absolutely LOVE it!! (I ordered it in white though, the sample was in ivory)

    Absolutely lovely! I definitely feel that it fits with the classic, romantic feel you're going for.

    Yes.  Here's the <<a href="http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Lace-Cap-sleeve-Trumpet-with-Keyhole-Back-and-Sash-VW9768">link</a>> to the dress on their website.  In the pictures, I have the sash flipped inside out...I hate the 'bling' on the belt they have (the pearls are nice, but they have these ugly silver beads that are just too much)

    are you going to get that same sash or will you order a different one? can they modify it to just have the pearls?

    I'm going to get just a white satin sash.  The dress comes with a little baggie of some extra pearls from that sash, so I will probably have my mom just sew on a couple scattered about just to give it a little sparkle.  Other than that, I actually like how it looks just plain.  I will also have my grandmas diamond and pearl pin pinned on the back where the bow knots.

    It was featured on Four Weddings.  I love that dress.  You really have to have a great figure to pull that dress off, which you do.

    It actually looks better on you than it does on the model.  You should probably send a photo to DB on your wedding day and see if they can give you a refund in return for a new picture for their website.

    Ugh, I am SO jealous! I desperately WANTED a dress with a back like that. Just wasn't flattering on my body, unfortunately, b/c I'm crazy about it. YOU, however, look STUNNING in that dress. Lovelovelovelovelove. I seriously am so excited to see how it all comes together!

    Gorgeous! I really like the top with the sweetheart neckline and the tapering straps and how the back shows off your back without being totally open, very classic and romantic! It looks beautiful on you!

    Yeah, I like that I was able to try it on in the actual size that I ordered.  I know that all I will really need altered is the hem, have bra cups sewn in and the straps need to be taken in just a tad.  Made it worth going slightly over my target budget because I know I'm not going to have to spend an arm and a leg on alterations.

    That's such a beautiful dress. I actually tried that dress on a week ago at DB and I couldn't pull it off. You on the other hand have the figure for it and make it look amazing! Congrats!

    Beautiful, beautiful!  I absolutely love everything about that dress, and I agree with the ladies - you look better than the model!  It emphasizes your figure so well, I'm sure your FI will have to catch his breath when he sees you in it!

    You look great in that dress. Now just make sure you surprise your FI by only letting him see it on your wedding day. That's a sure way of taking his breath away. When I get married, I plan on doing that.

    Thanks girls!  I'm really excited that I finally found the right dress.

    MZM- the only people allowed to see the dress before my wedding day are my bridesmaids and my mom, it will definitely be a surprise to everyone else...especially my FI.
