That Dress, 9055B


I've tried on a lot of dresses. Not as many as some, but still a good number. 9055B was the only dress that gave me the clench-my-fists-and-squeal-inside-with-glee feeling. I think that maybe this dress isn't "the one", and I will continue to stumble on dresses that make me swoon, but I hope that this is the dress that I never regret.

Here is another bride wearing my dress (I think her name is Camille). I think she looks beautiful, but she has made me realize how much the brooch does for the whole look. I'm sorry that I suck and can't remember where I found these pictures! I also will be filling out the top a little bit more, and I won't be wearing the sleeves off the shoulder, I am actually going to be adding material to the sleeves to make it "LDS Temple Ready", as we like to call it. August can't possibly come soon enough!




The pictures of me inside the dress aren't that great because of the idiotic, antiquated store policy which doesn't allow photos, and so the ones I have had to be taken on the sly.

If you are getting married to me, I would ask you to remember the promise you made NOT to click on the link below and take a peek. I kept my promise, now you have to keep yours!

Erin and Todd said...

Kate said...

Jenna! it's GORGEOUS!
I know the front is fabulous - but I especially love the back. It's so Hepburn!

Gorgeous!

I don't particularly like the brooch but the lines of the dress are fantastical. Even if you added sleeves, the integrity of the style would remain strong.

PS you make me laugh

Jenna, I love it! It's perfect, you look way better in it than the model. Seriously.

I love it! And I am jealous that you were able to find a dress with a back. I had to have one made! I also agree that you look way better than the model in that dress. Curves are a good thing.

put you on roll call this week. hope that's ok! let me know if you want to contribute at some point down the road too. :)

Guilty Secret said...

Wow it is gorgeous! It is quite unusual... the back is unexpected with the front, if you see what I mean. Almost like two styles in one - fabulous!

Ok, you've got to explain for me this whole not being engaged yet thing... seeing as you are basically engaged, why is it not official? Is there something you are waiting for? Thanks!

aletha @ pearls events said...

it's gorgeous! Love the photos of you in it :)

Lady T said...

oh sweetie!!! this is beautiful...it really fits your personality!

i love the brooch! Camille looks ok, but you are going to be gorgeous! i can't wait to hear all the deets about the hair, makeup accessories....

(thanx for liking my necklace. *wink*)

Jenna said...

Elizabeth-You are too sweet. Seriously, thanks!

Shelly-The 11th of October!

erin-I think it makes the process feel a little bit longer because I just want to be able to wear it!

kate-Thanks! Having your dress described as Hepburn makes you feel kind of classy.

boticelli-Keeping the "integrity" of the dress as you called it, was my number one priority. I wanted it to look like it was made with the kind of sleeves I will need. I think I will do some ebay hunting for a brooch.

122-I like to think so :) And I keep telling That Groom the same thing. I hope it lives up to the expectations I have set.

guilty-Hopefully my latest update answered your question. I just don't have a ring on my finger yet!

lady t-You are right, there are so many more things to plan!
