3 words to describe you in your dress

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?

    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!!!!

  • 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!

    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! image
  • 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!
