    I guess I don't understand how you could buy a wedding dress online unless you have tried the same one on in the store. It could look great in the picture and not so much on you (and vice versa). I agree about the models...some were freaky looking.

    I suspect everyone tries the dress on, the images are online to get you into the store.

    I found a dress that I loved online but they didn't sell it in any stores in my area. I didn't want to buy it online without having ever tried it on. I found a dress in a shop by the same designer that was one style number up from the one I wanted online. I bought that one and showed a picture of the other dress to a dressmaker and fixed it so it looked almost exactly like the one I wanted. I went through a lot of trouble but in the end I did get what I wanted! I will try to find a picture of it online.

    I think, if I were to ever get married again, assuming I didn't just go to the courthouse on my lunch break, I might like a dress like this:

    I'm going wedding dress shopping next week, but not for myself. I'm excited! I love wedding dress shopping!

    Miss.W: If I may be honest—because we know we all won't love everyone's style choices—I went from hesitating a bit with the first picture to seeing the full length photo and thinking it was stunning! It looks like a beautiful Barbie dress! Love it.

    mm, I think that would be beautiful. I love the shoulders and the split down the front. It reminds me, actually, of my prom dress I bought but never wore (I ending up not going).

    Thank you Kat! :thanks:

    JustMe, I am glad that you are honest. And to be honest, it was not my first choice. I actually went into the bridal shop planning on purchasing another dress I really wanted. One of my bridesmaids talked me into trying this dress (my thoughts on the dress- it looks like one of those dresses that looks weird on the hanger, but probably looks a lot different on someone). Well I tried it on and pretty much never looked back. Thank you for the honesty and I am actually going to be getting a jacket made with the same material of the dress. :)

    I probably made my initial reaction to be "worse" than it was. :unsure: It was just that only seeing the top portion left so much of the beautiful style hidden, so when I saw the full length photo I was surprised. Truly, there are beautiful dresses...but this one is stunning.
