I don't have pro pics that adequately show off the dress as yet but I do have a couple of blurry non-pro shots I can post to give you an idea of what I wore.

I initially bought a different dress from the Ritche bridal sale. It wasn't really what I preferred but because it fit I bought it so that I could just get on with the wedding planning. It wasn't my brightest move. I dragged my heals on getting it altered because I wasn't crazy about how the dress looked on me. I was pretty upset with myself.

Two weeks before the wedding I found a listing by a local woman woman was selling the dress below on craigslist; she already had a dress but she'd received it as a gift. I loved how I looked in it and it fit my mental image of how I wanted to look, you know?

The dress is "Carla" (size 16) by Maggie Sottero in the colour "pearl". The pictures aren't great but there's one from each side to show the slight gathering and the beadwork.

I didn't have a lot of time for alterations, so the seamstress took the bust in from each side as much as she could in one fitting (luckily you can't tell so much in these pics that there was more of a gap), and I had a sweetheart gather added on the bust line out of preference. I really loved it. I'd never felt so glamourous in my life.

Good luck dress shopping!



edited to say please ignore the demonic gleam in the eye(s) from the blurry pics!

Size 28 when purchased. It fit me when it came in, but I've lost a lot since then. We haven't had our day so no alterations yet to see what it looks like at my current size.

Thanks. We haven't done our renewal just yet. I could post a photo of a photo of our original day (11 years ago), but so not the same. Hopefully soon.

Wheelie_bride, it was originally. Things were put off due to finances. No harm, no foul.

I don't have pics of me in the one I actually chose but these are my runner ups if it helps any. I have lots of epic fails as well if you want to check out the "dresses I didn't choose" thread, lol. For reference, I'm a street size 18.
