I am in love with my current dress and I cannot wait to put it on (36 days to go...OH MY GOD!) however even though it is a ball down I slightly still dream of a mermaid. Post a pic of your dream dress you wish you would have gotten. Either you did or did not due to cost, style, whatever. Just some Saturday fun. If I were smaller these are the two mermaids I would have loved:

    I’ve been married before but have never had a wedding. I didn’t even know what I wanted so I didn’t have a dream dress. I knew I didn’t want a puffy or a mermaid dress. I love my dress!! For fun --- dream dress post 1

    Oh I get that. Different situation but I am 38 and thought I may never get married so finally having the moment is exciting. I love my dress too but I originally set out for a mermaid. I feel my current dress gives me the style of bride I want to be but I am a suck for mermaids. Problem is when you have hips and butt for days you can easily look like a stuffed sausage ha ha.

    Yup lol. I mean I have lost 24 lbs and wanna lose a few more but I was advised that A line and ball gown are a safe way to go lol. I carry everything lower so that is the good thing.

    I wore a mermaid off the shoulder gown. I loved it. But I loved a lot of gowns. This was another favorite, but I decided against it because it had an open back, and I thought it might not work with being supportive. For fun --- dream dress post 5

    Ooooh that dress is lovely. Ya know even thought I am getting this dress heeled with some minor alterations I also forego the mermaid because I didn't want to have to get alterations to get it fitted.

    I always thought I’d want to be in something like mermaid style and cap sleeves but that was the first style I tried on and it looked bad on me

    This was the dress I originally fell in love with. The large breasts and low back was too hard to deal with lol

    For fun --- dream dress post 10For fun --- dream dress post 11For fun --- dream dress post 12Soooo, the one on top is the very first dress I pinned to an inspo board on Pinterest.

    The second on I absolutely LOVE for the back details as I think you should be just as stunning from behind as from the front.

    The last one just took my breath away. I love love love how sexy it is. Sigh

    Yep, I'm sure they are too

    That's why my board is called "Wistfully Thinking" lol

    It's not my planning board but I'm a romantic at heart so I've been pinning wedding stuff for forever

    Maybe I should see how I could model wedding dresses for a living? Now that would be a dream job Smiley heart

    LOL I saved a ton of dresses and if I found one I loved I would pay up to $1000. I see offers in my area where they need models for wedding pictures and if my FH was not so shy I would make him ha ha. I am all about getting dolled up and posing for pics. I think it would be fun.
