    My favourite silhouettes are definately mermaids or trumpets, and my favourite neckline is a sweetheart


    my wedding gown is being designed by Parisian couture designer Nabil Hayari. After taking a look at his showroom masterpieces and latest collection for 2015, i'm excited for him to work his magic on me.

    Right now i've only got sketches of my gown, but i'll post some pictures after my first fitting :D

  • Wow!! So many gorgeous dresses in this thread. I went in with the intention of purchasing an a-line, but seemed to get lost in it! I thought it was suppose to flatter virtually all figures, but didn't work for me. Here's what I said yes to!!

    I found my dress at Angel Bridal in Islip in February and it should be in this month! It is from their custom line so I don't have a photo of it yet. I'll share a photo when my dress comes in :)
     
    It is an ivory all lace A-line gown with a sweetheart neckline. It also has a corset - which I never thought I would like! I knew I wanted lace from the very beginning and wanted to try on all different silhouettes to figure out what was the most flattering on me. The dress is strapless, but I am planning on having straps added or wearing a bolero.
     
    My aunt is making me a belt similar to this one from fabrics & jewelry that belonged to my grandmothers:

    Deleted because pictures were sideways--see new comment below.



  • OK, I"m not sure what happened to my last comment, but the pictures ended up sideways.  I thought I wanted a fitted, drop-waist gown with some bling and a fun skirt.  What I ended up with is below. It's from Impression Bridal.  I LOVE the shape, and the train, and the fact that it's taffeta.  The picture from behind shows the lace jacket that I bought so my shoulders will be covered for the ceremony.

    And I really, really, really love my veil.  I also have a blusher that I'll wear for the ceremony.

    stephisawes0me!

    Here is mine. I am adding lace straps & swapping out the bling on the belt for colorful fabric flowers (Posted above). Shortly after I chose my dress I started worrying that I had settled on it because I was getting tired of shopping. But now that I revisited it and was able to see what it looks like in my size I feel so happy with my decision. I can't wait to see the finished product!

    I got my dress from Angel Bridals on Long Island. It is from their private label and is the softest, most comfortable lace ever :)

    I'm not a conventional girl, and so I bought my dress a couple months before we got engaged because there was a clearance sale. I just picked one out online, took my measurements, and ordered it. It fits, was super inexpensive, and will satisfy our mothers, so it works for me. I kinda wish there had been more options in my size in the sale, because the one I went with is a little ballerina-princess for my taste, but at the end of the day I'd rather spend the money on other stuff than a dress.

  • Haven't found anything yet but have just gone once so far - though looked online a lot.  I really don't want to spend much so having trouble in that department.  Hoping to find something later this fall as maybe places will have closeout type sales? (fingers crossed, haha)

    I picked up MY ACTUAL dress last week! I was so excited to get it, because even though I've tried on the dress a few times, this one was MINE. It fits wonderfully, I feel beautiful in it, and it's IN MY CLOSET!! 

    I'm wearing one of my bridesmaids belts as my something borrowed, so it looks kind of plain here, but the belt kicks it up a notch.
