My Wedding Dress!

Kelly from Kelly's Korner is doing a new blog carnival called "Show Us Your Life" and this week is Wedding Dresses!

I'm sure every girl says this... but I really really really love my Wedding dress.

I found it at the first dress shop I went to in San Diego the October before our August Wedding. I loved it, but I had just started trying on dresses, so put it back on the rack thinking that I couldn't choose a dress so early. I shopped around for a few months finding a lot of great dresses, but non that made my heart sing. Then in January before our wedding I went back to that same dress shop to try on more dresses and happened to pick up the same dress, try it on, and knew it as THE ONE. My "Amara Royale."

The front...


The back...


The designer is Maggie Sottero. It's the "Amara Royale" dress in Ivory. It's a corset, strapless gown with sweetheart neckline, dropped waist, flare skirt, and a sweep train. It features swarovski crystals and bead embellishments.

Here are some shots of the details in the dress...




You can read all about our entire wedding here!

And yes, I still am going to do a Trash the Dress.

Happy Friday!

I know this is a long shot, but I was wondering if you would consider selling your dress? I have been looking for months trying to find this dress second-hand, and you look to be my size from the photos. If you would sell the dress, please e-mail me at zainey_brainey@yahoo.com

Nefiri said...

I'm wondering the same thing, think that the very best compliment is i would like to have your wedding dress on me for my special day comming up at spring 2012... So if you still have it and don't know what to do with it please make me happy... butterfly_him@yahoo.com
