What style is your wedding dress? Are you wearing a fit-n-flare or mermaid dress that shows off your shape? Were you drawn towards the drama of a ballgown? Are you into the simple sophistication of a sheath? Share your shape!

    A ballroom according to the design, but I think I would have need too wear a petticoat to get that silluetto and that’s just too much for July outdoor wedding. So it’s an a-line Smiley smile

    Mine is a ball gown, with sparkle tulle, a beautiful low back and a signature Hayley Paige skirt! I’m not the traditional bride and the champagne color dress spoke to me in a way no other dress did!

    I loved my dress when I tried it on but when I look at the pictures I feel like I don't like it as much. Any other brides feel this way?

    I think this is A-line...? I almost bought a ballgown a tried on the night before, but the next day I brought my parents with me for the stamp of approval and this dress caught my eye. I started tearing up when my dad did so I'd say I picked the right one! Plus I'm a sucker for halter tops and POCKETS!!

    I feel the same! I think the in store pictures I took make me feel unsure about my decisions. But take into account it's going to look a lot different when alterations, makeup, and hair are done for the big day! It's hard to envision, but if you knew it was your dress than rock it! Looks gorgeous btw

    Mine is a fit and flare! Thought I would go ball gown but this style was much more flattering on my figure.
