    Hey everyone!!

    Have you found your dream dress or even just your dream dress-style?

    I'm torn between something princess-y and something more simple and elegant.

    At the moment I am so in love with :cloud9::

    http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?style=A3326

    and

    http://images.teamsugar.com/files/upl1/0/3987/16_2008/80660842.preview.jpg

    That could change in the next few days though :blush: I'm not very decisive when there's so many beautiful things to choose from.

    If you're confused like me but have seen some dresses you love please post some pics or links - it can be like group therapy/decision-making :thumbup: :rofl:

    I need help!!! :blush:

    This was my dress, but I designed it myself with Alan Hannah and it's now part of his collection :) Mine was slightly different though. Wider skirt, and I had lace down the back of the dress too. I also wore a lace bolero.

    And that style is stunning too! I just can't see myself in a wedding dress for some reason, I guess when I start trying them on I'll have a better idea :)

    Yep, I just knew what I wanted! Classic, lace, a-line skirt :) Something timeless really.

    Hi girls, just a little tip from someone who had a 'dream' wedding dress in their mind when I went shopping, it was halter neck and had a full skirt (very princessy), but when I put it on, it looked hideous! I then realised that I needed to be open-minded

    I then let my 'assistant' choose dresses for my shape (ones I never would have picked up as they highlighted my big hips and bum) but she was right! I went for a fishtail design and it was amazing!

    If you go shopping, have an idea of what you want but let the girls advise you based on your shape and see what they come up with..you'll be very surprised about what looks good on you personally.

    By all means, if you want what you've seen then go for it, you need to feel like a million dollars when you've got it on.

    Thats exactly what happened to me too!!!

    I had printed out 'the dress' went to try in on and it looked awful.

    I then went in to a gorgeous shop and the man who owned the shop told me to pick on I didn't want........and that dress was perfect!!!

    Those dresses are beautiful, I already have mine :blush: Couldn't resist ordering it - I knew it was the one and wanted it paid off so I could think about paing for the actual wedding :winkwink:

    Here's some pictures..it's nothing like a grecian dress!

    i have ordered my dream dress! Like MrsVenn I had in mind what I wanted and when I put it on it looked terrible. Then I tried a few different styles on and LOVED the lace. I was trying to go for something more Vintage looking as that is the theme of my wedding.
