So a lot of threads from me today - Sorry!

This is my dress - It was a sample and a bit beat up. Mine wont come in for like another 8 months or so.

I purchased it from Kleinfelds. My mum really wanted to go to Kleinfelds just for the experience but i fell in love. Its Maggie Sottero 'Nora'. I didn't purchase the veil as it was half the price of the dress - INSANE!!!!

I was torn between dresses i thought i should have and dresses that made me feel like a bride. I thought stuff it, Im wearing whatever i want - who cares if its a beach wedding!!!

** My photo keeps failing - any help would be appreciated!!!***

That was my dream to go to Klienfelds! I wanted this Pninia Tornai Dress but it was way way way over my budget. I found this beautiful dress I could NOT live with out from a local bridal shop in my town! Its Allure!

I am so happy that I found this thread. I am not the bride but the mother of the bride. (I think that is just as important I really am glad to see yo ladies with beautiful formal dresses. My daughter bought her dress, a gorgeous Olga Cassini and it is organza ballgown one shouldered. She is now thinking of a cruise wedding and hoping that it wasn't too formal. You have now calmed me about this. I am really enjoying all of the information and congrats to all of you!

My mother would definitely agree with you, as would I! Mothers at an integral part of their daughters wedding.

I say it's your wedding and wear what you want!!
