I am almost contemplating getting one of the bridesmaid dresses myself, I really like it! And I like me some pouf too Though, I can't imagine putting another petticoat underneath that as the saleswoman told me some brides do. This dress is just the right amount of pouf I think, and I like how the back comes to a small point, makes me feel like I'm wearing a dress from Scarlet O'Hara's time or something

I love the dress you purchased SthrnZeta! I think it fits you perfectly too and I really love the thick band at the waist.

No, no! She wants to borrow my daughter's future MIL's poufy-sleeved gown! Wow, she looked like her arms had been inflated!

I thought I had posted a picture of my dress, but it looks like I only posted the model pic - which, the link is now broken.





and of course - my sisters singing to me at the reception....



I had initially said I didnt want a strapless dress, but god forbid if I could find one that I liked. This dress came with optional spaghetti straps, but I decided to not bother with them.

You could get the bridsmaid's dress for yourself and wear it to the rehersal! See if anyone notices the next day...

Do they change into that super-covered-up one when they get inside, I wonder? Since only Mormons can attend a Mormon temple wedding, I guess only a Mormon could tell us. Any LDS Greekchatters?
I'm not LDS, but know quite a few. When they get married in a Temple ceremony, they also are given a Temple Garment which they wear for the rest of their lives. The dresses are pretty conservative so that the garment can be worn underneath. I've never completely seen one, but they sound very much like those old-fashioned drop-drawer pjs you see, only shorter and with special embroidery. I do know that there are people who seriously never completely take it off, even for a bath or shower! They'll have the sleeve of one on as the other is being taken off. I keep thinking that, when they hit their 40-50's, their hot flashes are going to be brutal!

I've got to find a picture of my full-back armed wedding dress - without the massive cleavage, that is! OleMissGlitter, I just love, love, love that first dress!! But that last one reminds me of a Herb Alpert cover!
