Hello Alfred Angelo Brides!
Today, I am sharing a preview of a few styles/silhouettes I tried on at my first appointment, and why I thought these would be a good fit for my body shape.
As I said in my last post, I chose Alfred Angelo because of the amount of variety they have in both wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses. The fit is fabulous (as I found out at my first fitting) AND, they have a wide selection of different styles to fit every shape and size that will make every girl feel beautiful.
After trying on wedding dresses, my top four came down to: 2240, 1136, 801, and 758.
I love the one-shoulder design of Alfred Angelo style 2240. The overall look and shape of the dress hugged my curves perfectly, and I loved the mix of fabrics. The asymmetric bodice flatters at the hips, and the embroidered lace skirt flows effortlessly.
Alfred Angelo 1136 (an Alfred Angelo top seller!) really let me express, what I like to call my inner “Elvis” with all that crystal beading at the neckline! And lets face it, what girl doesn’t love a little sparkle? The satin fabric falls beautifully on your body, and the draping at the waist slims and will make your waist look, I think, two sizes smaller. Just an overall great dress!
Alfred Angelo Sapphire style 801 really screamed “Megan”. The texture of the beautiful re-embroidered lace, in ivory, appealed to me because it matches the theme of my wedding, Country Chic, SO well! The sweetheart neckline shows off your décolletage without being too revealing, and the sheath style is a classic silhouette. I really loved this dress!
Alfred Angelo Sapphire style 758 was just absolutely stunning! It has the perfect amount of sparkle to stand out, but not over-the-top. It also fit my hourglass figure like a glove, and the corset style was very flattering. The train is jaw dropping, and overall, there were so many intricate details that pulled it together to be a perfect wedding gown. This dress is very elegant and I truly felt like a princess in it.
You, too, can try on these Alfred Angelo styles at any Alfred Angelo Signature store, or any Alfred Angelo Partner store, located all across the US.
I went to Alfred Angelo Partner store Margo’s A Wedding Place in Union, Missouri to try on my wedding dresses. I worked with an AMAZING associate named Rachel, who made me feel like she truly cared for me, my bridesmaids, and what I was looking for in my perfect dress. I was feeling under the weather the day I had my appointment, but Rachel made me forget all about it!
Toward the end of my appointment, I was having the HARDEST time choosing between my top two dresses, but Rachel was able to assist me in making up my mind! Margo’s had a magnificent selection of wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses. The boutique is very clean and cozy, and I was very comfortable the entire time (despite being ill). I can’t wait to go back. If you are shopping for a dress and ever in the area, check them out!
After an hour of trying on my top 4 dresses, I was FINALLY able to choose “the one”. Stay tuned to find out what style I decided on for me big day.
What styles/silhouettes are you looking to try on on at your first appointment?
I hope 2013 is off to a great start for you!
All the best,
