    I've gone crazy. I went with my friend (I'm her maid of honor) while she tried on Wedding dresses. Now I am addicted to looking at them. So far my favorites are:
    This one with maybe victorian lilac

    My friend liked the top one but she looked like a box in it. So that means it is open for me to like haha! :D

    They're beautiful!!!

    Just something to consider: are you one of those women who can wear strapless dresses comfortably? I've been to so many weddings and proms where a stapless woman spends a good part of the night pulling her dress up; it must be very distracting for them.

    That said, my sister's wedding dress in October was strapless, and she had no problems.

    They are lovely, Jaime.

    Are you familiar with the Shopaholic books by Sophie Kinsella? You absolutely should find Shopaholic Ties the Knot. It is a thousand laughs.

    Are you going to go with color in it?

    I'm not a fan of the corset type back, but otherwise these are just gorgeous.

    I saw pictures yesterday from a friend's son's wedding in the Carribean. The bride's dress was very similar to that last one, with a tiffany blue sash to match both the bridesmaid's dresses and the water in the background.

    Completely stunning!!

    I'm not a big fan of the wedding dresses with color in them. I guess maybe that's the traditional side of me sneaking out. :) I'm a HUGE fan of the first one Jaime posted, though, and it looks like it comes in all white. yay!

    Grr! I went to go post my dream dress by Maggie Sottero, but it is discontinued.
    I didn't know they did that? :eek: It wasn't very long ago when I saw it in a bridal store.

    Anyway, you all should check out some of her dresses, they are beautiful.

    Some stores may still have it, the company just isn't producing any in the style anymore.

    Gator,

    My dress was a Maggie Sottero too. I just kept coming back to all of her dresses and finally found the one I loved.

    I will definitely have to check around. I just adored that dress--even though it's way out of my price range.:eek:

    MissFrizzle, can you post which one you wore? (or you can PM me)

    If it is discontinued you can usually find it at a bridal shop for a big discount!

    I wanted an all white one to, until I saw the colored one on Jenn. I think I don't mind if the color is really really pale. Like the victorian lilac.

    Maithal,
    Most of the ones that are shown as strapless actually come with straps that you can snap on (at least at David's bridal). I like your second one better than the first. LOL but it looks similar to the one my friend is getting.

    Green is my favorite color so pistachio or glass green. But I would probably have picked a color to compliment or match my bridesmaid dresses. I think the color is what makes it so unique!

    I'll probably end up with a colored dress (very light though) because I look dead in white. My skin is way too pale ;)

    Good thing I still have two years, because I don't think the dress I want exists.
    I want a fairly narrow a- line (ish) skirt, fitted bodice but not too tight, a v neck, and tank top straps- I would hate a strapless, my shoulders are too wide for a halter, and I'm not crazy about spaghetti straps.
    I look through websites when I'm bored, and I haven't found it yet. You'd think simple would be easy to find, but apparantly not

    They are really very nice wedding dresses. I will marry soon. So, I can have ideas from those pictures.
    The wedding dresses make more beautiful all the girls...
