HELL YEAH!  That's my dress!  I had the straps altered so that I could remove them or keep them on if I wanted to.  I ended up never wearing them.

Yes, it was comfortable.  The only trouble I had was with the bustle.  I paid for four bustles and then couldn't find them!  When I got home and was able to look at it again w/o the pre-wedding nerves, I was able to find them easily. 

Here's a couple pics

You look beautiful!  the train is just gorgeous.  I am getting married in the middle of July,outside, and it looks like you were somewhere warm (obviously), were you comfortable in the hot weather?

Yes, I got married in April in the Caribbean so it was hot and humid outside.  The only place I got really hot was my legs and that's because my thighs are too damn fat and they rub together!  All in all, I thought it was comfy.

I think I'll probably get hot then, too, hehe.  I can't wait to wear it, and I am going to get the straps removed.  I think it looks so much better strapless.  This dress is a good compromise between what I thought I wanted, very simple, not to much poof, and those huge dresses.

Yeah, I wanted something more simple too. I don't really have the figure to pull of the dainty DW dresses! I fell in love with the lace train when I tried this on. Funny thing is, it didn't even make my short list when looking at pictures. The lady in the salon had me try it on and I knew this one was it. I had another appt at a different salon that same day. All I kept doing was comparing those dresses to this one. Needless to say, I left that other salon and went right back to AA and made my purchase!

Hi, I have completely fallen in love with this dress. Did you get it in white or ivory?

Thanks
Casey

I thought the dress was pretty, but I honestly didn't care for it at all. I purchased the dress online, not through the designer and the way they styled the dress, I couldn't even move my legs. Is it supposed to be that way? It was created "mermaid style", but I took a look at other people with the same dress and it had the A-line style. I wouldn't recommend this dress to anyone who weighs any more than 120 pounds or if you have a pear shaped figure. It really didn't flatter my curvy figure at all. I think it's a beautiful dress, but not for me. I had it custom made according to my measurements, but somewhere along the way the dress turned out mermaid style instead of A-line and I couldn't sit down or move my legs without worrying about ripping the dress.

I do agree this would look better strapless.
