Thanks for voting on the dresses readers! I especially love that you weighed in on them Roger. I needed a man's opinion. And I think I'm leaning towards the meshy sleeves. As much as I agree with Brooke and Lynne's recommendation to go big or go home with the sequins, I'd be mortified if everyone was wearing short black dresses and I show up in a full gown of silver sequins. I'm not ballsy enough to pull that off. Yet.
Another little tidbit that might make a difference, is that the wedding starts at 5:00pm, so it'll still be light out and I kind of think sequin gowns are a nighttime only indulgence. Right? I am just making up these rules?
Anyways, I found two more today that are contenders. A short navy blue Monique Lhuillier and a stunning teal satin Alberta Ferretti. The AF one is $2595!! Rental price for me is $150 which is more than I wanted to spend, but when am I EVER going to wear a $2600 gown?? My wedding dress wasn't even like 1/10th that. Here they are:
Ooh... look at the back... I like the scalloping in the lace too. So Monique.
I mean seriously. Come on. The long sleeve and that back line? So pretty. And that teal is the same color I want to paint our living room!! This one takes balls too though. The color alone...
