Hi everyone,

I posted a couple of weeks ago saying that I couldn't find the right dress and I got loads of great advice (http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/chatroom/topic/169134). I now really rejuvenated and ready to hit the shops again :\)

I ended up doing an exercise based on something Cougar said. This was to answer the following questions:

- what 3 words do you want people to use to describe you when they first see you in your dress?
- what 3 words do you want your H2B to use to describe you in your dress?
- what 3 words DON'T you want people to use to describe you in your dress?

I thought it'd be fun to post our answers and then post links to our dresses :\) I was really surprised by my answers - maybe you'll be surprised by yours...

- 3 words I want people to use: sexy, sophisticated, she did it her way (which isn't a word, but you know what I mean)
- 3 words I want H2B to use: bride, mine, beautiful
- 3 words I don't want people to use: white, meringue, uncomfortable

I haven't chosen the dress yet but I think it might be Jenny Packham's Sabine (which isn't so revealing in real life and is kind of gold: http://www.bridalwave.tv/2008/12/sabine_by_jenny_packham.html)

What about everyone else?

Hey Henny_Geddes - I just tried on Paola yesterday! I went to Sassi Holford and it caught my eye because it was really elegant yet quite different. It's beautiful!

Bridezilla

3 words I want other people to use - pretty, petite, special
3 words I want my future husband to use - beautiful, lovely, perfect
3 words I don't want people to use - plain, silly, overdressed

I've chosen overdressed as I chose my dress for an August wedding that we had booked, where we had many guests and quite a posh venue. But we cancelled it all and now we get married in April, in Gretna Green with only our parents and my brother and his two children present. i easily gave up the big wedding but couldn't part with the dress!! It's Marilyn by Charlotte Balbier and I'm worried now i'ts going to be too much and I'll feel overdressed!!!!

Bridezilla

yay, i'm so excited it helped! and that you may have found your dress.

I actually had my first dress fitting on Saturday and it didn't go too well, as the dress was too small (annoying, as I told the shop it would be but they insisted it was better to let it out than take it in), but i'm sure it'll look fine once it's been let out.
anyway, here are mine:

3 words i want other people to use: stunning, elegant, timeless.
3 words I want H2b to use: i'm proud to be your husband (o.k., I konw that's 6).
3 words I don't want people to use: horrible, unsuitable, too fussy.

My dress is benjamin roberts 909 (http://www.aliyarose.co.uk/br909.htm).

This has actually been fun to put down, as it helps remind me of why I do love my dress, and why it will be perfect once it fits!

3 words I want people to use: princess sparkly stunning
3 words H2B: Beautiful, stunning, gorgeous
3 words don't want: OTT, boring, naff

Bridezilla

This is fun.

3 words I want other people to use - jaw droppingly gorgeous
3 words I want my future husband to use - my beautiful love
3 words I don't want people to use - what was she thinking???? (ok, so it's four)

My dress is Benjamin Roberts 1003. The model looks so bored in the picture! The photos don't do it justice but I love the lace and I'm having shoe string straps instead of strapless.

Hey Cougar, I'm so pleased your dress has finally arrived as I know you were stressing about it. I'm sure the alterations will be fine. It's a fantastic BR dress you have. I tried it on too but unfortunately the v-neck style didn't suit my boobs so went with 1003. The twins look much better in it!

New bride

Hey Cougar!

Yes, you really helped. It really made me think and made everything so much clearer. I think before I just fell for any pretty dress I saw (all of them) and it was so confusing! Let us know how all the fittings go and send pics when you have then!

Bridezilla

3 words I want people to use: elegant (for a change!), relaxed, beautiful
3 words H2B: WOW, glad you're mine, stunning!
3 words don't want: fat, boring, disappointed


Yeah I think we're all pretty similar! I think people are expecting me to have something colourful and flamboyant but I've gone for something so simple it's untrue!!! xx

Bridezilla

3 words I want people to use: stunning , classic , elegant
3 words H2B: Beautiful, proud, shes mine
3 words don't want: fat , not bridal, boring

Bridezilla

3 words i want people to use: wow, stunning, beautiful
3 words i want my h2b to use: amazing, gorgeous, wow
3 words i won't want people to use: eww, ugly, toilet roll cover!
