Childhood dream dress

ok so I’m not sure the title is right, but did anyone have a dress they really loved when they were younger?

I wasn’t a big wedding obsessive, but I once saw a silver dress in a shop window as a teen and decided I would wear one of those when I got married.

I saw this dress and decided it was the one!

I actually still really like most of the dress, apart from the gathered bit near the hips.

I love the way the lace hangs over the tulle, and I love the shape of the neckline (this shape really suited me when trying on dresses). I think I could actually have happily worn this dress if there was a way to change the gathers. 

On reflection though I doubt silver would have been quite my colour!

I ended up with a v neck tulle and lace ivory a line dress.

How about you? How does your ideal dress compare with your actual dress? Do you still like the dream dress? Would you wear it?

Try to find a picture of you can!

I was obsessed with these medieval/princess/fantasy inspired wedding dresses as a child (...and teen....), in fact I found a dress online when I was around 14 that I was adaman I would have. I can't find it now haha but these are similar to the sort of thing I wanted as a child/teen...

I now have a very traditional, a line, V neck dress haha

I had a brief fling with the idea of one of these as well, when I was about 13-14. The bridal shop by my school had one in with a deep red crushed velvet bodice 🙊

I remember when I was a teen, I went through the whole goth/emo phrase and back then when you are that age, you think that is who you really are and I was sure I would have a goth themed wedding and wear a black wedding dress and a lot of eyeliner. I ended up wearing a purple dress with only a tiny bit of make up on my actual wedding day about 10 years later

Mine was always the big princess dresses! I was 100% sure that I would have one when I got married. I did try some on but they made my look massive, I’ve ended up with a fishtail. 

The ones I lusted over in my teens were similar to the below.

That's the pnina tornai dress isnt it? Features on almost every episode of SYTTD it feels like haha

Not so much childhood but the one that sticks for me is Abbey Clancys dress.... I don't know why but I think it is perfect and it was always in my mind when shopping. Saying that I've had children, eaten since 2011 and would look like a whale .... a girl can dream hey 🤣🤣

This was mine from The King and I.

I did try one on that was just as big but ended up with a lace fit and flare which was far more flattering on me.

I was always very specific that I wanted a strapless sweetheart neck super tight to the waist then POOF giant skirt.

Luckily since I'm only 23 I got to scratch that itch with my prom dress!

My wedding dress is the same top but it's a fishtail and I'm wearing a lace crop top over it

As a teen I whole heartedly thought that I’d end up with a Grecian style dress - really understated and very floatly. Maybe something like this:

In the end I’ve gone for a princess dress with a fuller skirt, covered in lace (don’t know how to describe it but not the usual flowery lace) and an illusion lace back.

I always loved Gwen Stefani's wedding dress: 

I loved the dip dye and the drama. Totally what I thought I wanted. 

And then I tried on a bunch of big dresses and got fed up with the weight and the lack of ease of movement. I was fed up after wearing them for like twenty minutes, never mind a whole day. Ended up with a tea length dress instead. Much easier to schlep around in;:
