Which dresses didn't make the cut, and why? Share pics if you got 'em! (I wish I kept pics I didn't really like because my "unhappy" faces were pretty funny.) Post a pic of "The One" if you found yours already and tell us why.

I REALLY wanted a fitted bodice with sleeves & a ball gown skirt--so hard to find in 2016. Finally, when I tried on a Hayley Paige (way out of budget), I had the idea of trying separates to create the look I wanted.

    I didn’t keep those pics bc I didn’t want to have any regret looking back. But one in particular I only tried on bc my stepmom loved it so much was a tea length one. I definitely wanted the ball gown.

    Lol this is fun... I kept all of my reject photos, but will limit my sharing to 3... some weren’t terrrrrrible, but one imparticular was ridiculous haha It was still fun trying them all on though and we all shared a good laugh with the ones that were definite no’s.

    First picture was the very 1st dress I tried on.
    i really wanted illusion to work and the sleeves, that’s the style I was drawn to before I went trying on.
    Last picture was a close second. I’m not posting my dress until after the wedding 😊

    Wow, the "One" is totally your dress!!! But honestly, I like all the others too. Number 2 is not terrible, but the neckline isn't nearly as beautiful as YOUR dress. Who is the designer?

    (Finally a place to share our "reject" dress pics, right?)

    Oh come on, we want to see it!

    Ooh, I can see why the last pic was a close 2nd. That's such a pretty flowy gown and that belt is gorgeous. Ok, fine, we'll wait to see "The One" two more months... Smiley winking

    Thanks Smiley smile The 1st and 3rd reject dresses were very pretty, just not fully my style; I felt #1 was not flattering to my figure & looked more like a fancy party/prom dress; #3 was flattering to my figure but was just a bit too froufrou/cupcakey for me. That 2nd one though.... eeesh, there was not a single thing any of us liked about that dress lol

    I deleted all of my reject pictures except 1. This was my 2nd favorite dress but it was more fitted and I figured I could always wear a fitted dress to my vow renewal but you don't often get to wear a ballgown. I still get a teeny bit of dress regret when I look at it but I LOVE my dress. This is my dress before alterations and hemming.

    The fitted one does look good on you...but the ball gown is DREAMY! I feel like this is the dress that'll make your guests and honey-to-be say "Awwwwww!"
