I love seeing all the beautiful dresses, and hearing the story behind picking them. I looked for 10 months before deciding. Quite a few times I thought I had found the one. But no matter how much I loved it, I kept looking. Well now I've found one and I no longer want to look. The belt will be sapphire blue to match the sapphire jewelry I'm wearing. The bridesmaids dresses are beautiful and I actually chose them first and based the wedding colors around them and the sapphire necklace I fell in love with and needed an excuse to buy.

    The first picture is of my dress and the two girls in the pink on the left are my MOH and BMs. Second picture is of Zach and I.

    I'm in LOVE with what you've got going on with your dresses - such a vintage theme. Where did you get your BM dresses?

    Beautiful! We had the same BM dresses picked up, but then decided to go with a slightly different style (without the bow in dark navy). The story behind my dress is that I started looking before I got engaged (we had been together for almost 7 years), and found the perfect dress! I'm super picky, and there were very few dresses that I had seen that I liked at all. So when this dress when on sale (the style was retiring!) I bought it... It arrived just after we got engaged. LOL!

    I found the all my dresses on etsy. The necklace as well. I let my maid of honor pick the length and neckline and my other bridesmaid pick the color and fabric. I chose the dress based on that so everyone was happy because I'm picky and wanted final say. I love sapphires and was glad when my bridesmaid chose blue because it was the push I needed to say to hell with the fall colors (september wedding) I want blue.

    I think you can actually make a really nice fashion statement by using some off-season colours (to some extent). Sapphire to me works anytime Smiley smile

    I tried on 2 dresses after mine, and I couldn't stop thinking about mine. I waited 2 days to go back and actually buy it. I wanted time to think, but in the meantime I just had dream after dream in that dress.

    My bridesmaids dresses were my second choice pick. We picked one and I decided they were way too expensive. My MOH is in it in this pic (the black straps are her bra silly girl) It was $100 less and wayyyy more beautiful. If I would've seen it first, it definately would've been my first pick!

    I went alone the first time I saw this dress. VERY unflattering on the hanger, but tried it anyway. I was surprised how good it fit! I put a deposit down but had to bring my mom in to make sure that it was THE one. She couldn't stop saying how gorgeous it was and i was sold Smiley smile

    I had no bridesmaids. Just a flower girl and ring bearer. She wanted to look like a princess. So her dress had to have a tulle skirt with a crinoline underneath

    This was the first dress I tried on! I'd been eyeing it up for months - we went on Saturday - I tried on 3, put this one back on, and was done. I love it!

    I love dress posts!

    I shopped at 6 different shops before I found my dress. I tried both bridal & resale shops. Tried on dozens of dresses while shopping. When I finally found the dress it was the first one I tried on that day, and then after trying on at least 10 more dresses I put the first one back on. It has one sleeve, which I am getting taken off to make it strapless. First fitting in August! The bridesmaid dresses are black & this style fit very well on both the bridesmaids who were with me shopping at the time (both very different bodies).

    Welllll, I just can't resist showing off how beautiful my dress is! My girls don't have their dresses yet, but when they do, be sure I'll be showing them off!

    My favorite kind of thread. Beautiful dresses ladies Smiley smile

    Here's my dress. No pics of me in it yet. I'm having it made. First fitting with my seamstress is on August 6th (woo hoo). I was searching online for dresses that were not too "weddingy" since this is a vow renewal and when I saw this one, I didn't need to look any further.

    So, here is mine = ) It's an Enzoani gown. I do love it, but I am having a bit of dress regret- I went back and forth between this one and one that was just as beautiful, but WAY less expensive- like $1000 less. FH and I picked it out( my mom has passed away, and my bridesmaids are scattered along the west coast). I'm not thinking this wasn't the BEST gown choice for our Vegas wedding = /

    Edit: I am also 15lbs lighter now, so when I tried it on in the store when it came in, it didn't look the same on me as when I ordered it.

    Beautiful dresses ladies!

    I tried on at least 80 wedding dresses from 5 or 6 different salons. (I lost count after a while) While walking up to the salon, I notice this (my) dress was in the window and told my BM that I found my dress. I actually went into the whole dress shopping experience wanting a trumpet style gown, but felt really chunky in them.

    The third picture is the BM dress (it was ordered in black). Again, I lost count of how many dresses my girls tried on over the 4 store adventure. They were real troopers!

    Love seeing everyone's dresses! I found my dress in my first appointment. I actually had a 2nd appointment scheduled because my mom and FMIL both came into town to dress shop with me. I cancelled my 2nd appointment because I had found my dress. I kind of wish I would have kept it just so I could try on more because when else do you get to try on wedding dresses! Instead we went to Nordstrom to look at wedding shoes and I wound up finding shoes and they were like 60% off! The BM's dress should be in soon, I'm starting to get anxious because it's less than 2 months to the wedding and I really just want to see them!

    In March my sister and I went dress shopping together with my mom (my sister got married on July 4th) and I wasn't officially engaged yet, but the ring was in the process of being picked out. I didn't plan on finding a dress, just wanted to get ideas of what style would look best on me. Well, I found it!! And I didn't want it to take it off, lol.

    BMs will be in convertible dress in navy with varying lengths. One is choosing maxi length, one will be above the knee and one probably right below the knee.
