In honor of this random plug, I thought I should post about my updated dress ideas.
The above board represents my 2-piece, sleeved favorites. They are lacy, the boleros can be removed and I'm loving them! The inconsistency lies with the bottom. I don't have a favorite style when it comes to the bottom. I'm more concerned with framing my chest/face nicely. The bottom will be determined once I try on. The only prerequisite is that I can seriously dance in it. DF and I can get down...

Oh my, the above image seriously blew my mind. I found it while browsing the UK Brides (which made me miss it over there so bad! I love the Brits!). Wouldn't it look awesome with a long, sleek pony-tail? I fell for the lines, the sleeves and the neckline. Apparently they believe in sleeves across the pond! It was like a breath of fresh air. Nothing against the strapless gowned-brides, but goodness, a girl needs options! Below is the only strapless gown that I have found appealing. I never thought I'd go for a sweetheart neckline, but it really looks good on a busty bride (busty bride right here).Sweetheart strapless via Knottie Bio Lovely24

The below image was also found while browsing gowns from the UK. This one looks like something that could currently be hanging in my closet. The wrap look, low cut...very me. I wish it had some lace, but boy does it look comfy.
These gowns give me hope that I will be able to find something that is both flattering and comfortable. So glad to see that sleeves are making a comeback.
