Say Yes to Amber's Dress!

In addition to the Direct TV/Internet guys come today we had a very serious family issue arise today so I didn't get to work in my craft room at all. 

BUT, I did want to share our own version of Say Yes to the Dress!  I have to tell you I had lots of fun...it's just like the show but Amber had about a dozen ladies there to support and I think confuse her - LOL!!  Everyone had opinions but in the end nobodies opinion outweighed her inner joy when she finally made her decision.

Having 2 boys I have to tell you I've never set foot into a bridal shop before so this was a totally new and unique experience for me.  (When I got married I wore my Mom's dress...which fit me perfectly nearly 20 years after she wore it.)  Anyway, it was VERY busy when we arrived...lots and lots of girls trying on not only bridal gowns but formal wear, brides maid and prom dresses....not to mention all the little kids running around.  

I am so proud of her...she looked great in everything she tried on!  She's 5 months preg (due 6-25) and just kept going and going.  Anyway, without further delay here are the dresses she tried on (in order)....

Dress #1

Ambers Wedding Dress - 2-13-11 010

Dress #2

Dress #8

So, which did you like the best?

Which one do you think I liked the best??

Which one do you think she picked as "THE" dress???

I think since this is such a special occasion it calls for a little give-a-way!

  6. I have to vote for #2 being my favorite.....let's hope she went with that one, but she is beautiful in all of them.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Dress #1 is just so beautiful... and #7 too... I think that these two suit her the best but if I had to chose just the one it would be... #1 :O)) She looks beautiful in all of them... guess I am rubbish at trying to make decisions LOL x

    ReplyDelete
  8. Dress number 2 for me. Think it looks great on her.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Dress #2 is va-va-voom!! I hope thats the one

    ReplyDelete
  10. I like dress #5 but I would say that you like dress #7!! Very pretty dresses!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh how I love #7! I think it is the most flattering on her and is just plain ole breathtaking. However I feel like she may have chosen #6 by the look on her face. I must say though she really looks great in them all! :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wow, that's not an easy choice, but I think I'd choose dress 2. It really looks great on her! It must be a very exciting time!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I like 1 and 2, but they are all beautiful!!!
    Congratulations to the Bride to Be!! My youngest is also getting married this May! So we know how exciting this time is!!!
    Hugs and Best Wishes no Matter What Dress You Chose to Wear!!! You Will Be Radiant....

  14. I like 5, 6 and 8.
    So pretty.
    Good luck

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think she looks lovely in all of them, but I thought no. 2 (especially) and no. 6 looked quite stunning on her. But whatever dress she chooses for her special day, she will be wearing the most becoming accessory, happiness! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Dress 4 is very flattering on her. That would be my choice! :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hi Roni -

    She looks gorgeous in all of them, but my favorite is dress #1. I do like the back if dress #2, but my pick is still dress #1.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Definitely no. 3. I remember how hard the choice was when my daughter got married and then her bridesmaids were at both ends of the size scale. Such fun!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think I like #3 the best. Very classic, nice lines and I think it flatters her figure the best. Soft and flowing too. I love all of them actually....love a pretty bride!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. wow all nice choices! I think #2 rocks on her as well as # 6, I think she chose #2... I think you chose # 2 as well, as did her mom lol...can't wait to hear the results..so exciting you will be a gramma soon enuf! Color me green! xo cher

    ReplyDelete
  21. Dress #1 is my favorite. I like the ribbon at the waist and think that's a nice way to pull together wedding colors from the bridesmaids and the flowers. She looks great in all of the dresses! Probably you two chose dresses 2 and 6! Anne, yourmainestamper

    ReplyDelete
  22. They are all beautiful but #2 looks like it was made just for her! I love the back of that dress too. Congratulations to you both!

    ReplyDelete
  23. She looks amazing in all of them but my vote is for #2.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh my gosh, what fun! A big congrats to the whole family. I love Say Yes to the Dress - I have to say that Dress #2 struck me immediately. It's so very elegant. I know young women these days love the strapless look, but that dress has a certain something. Tee hee, I hope she's not going to read all of these comments - more confusion, poor dear!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love the first dress, especially since it has a little splash of green in it!

    ReplyDelete
  26. She looks lovely in them all but number 2 has the edge on all the others... for a couple of reasons: it has as much interest at the back so people get to see a lovely view while she as the altar and the halter neck suits her figure, bustline and shoulders and that extra overlay on the front will be a real help as the baby grows into a pronounced bump!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Number 7, but she will be beautiful in whatever she chooses.

    ReplyDelete
  28. For me, it's dress #3! It's lovely! And she looks so happy in that picture. Congratulations to both, the bride-to-be and her proud (and sometimes inky) mother! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. 2 or seven - no goodie bag for me though.

    ReplyDelete
  30. (Oooops... sorry for the double post... please remove if possible :-/ It's MINA!! Miiiiiina... LOL!)

    For me, it's dress #3! It's lovely! And she looks so happy in that picture. Congratulations to both, the bride-to-be and her proud (and sometimes inky) mother! :-)

    My vote goes for dress #6.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    Have a nice week!

    ReplyDelete
  32. she looks great with all the dress...but i prefer the no 5...

    ReplyDelete
  33. What fun!! She looks beautiful in all of them but I loved her in #2 and #8.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I LOVE 3,7 and 8. But at my opinion she looks best in 7.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Roni, my favorite on her is dress #2. It is sophisticated and romantic and lovely on her. Dying to know which one she chose.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I liked number 6 best but there were some other close ones.

    ReplyDelete
  37. OMG!! There all so beautiful on her.....it's hard to pick!! But I have narrowed it down to 2....#3 and #6.

    ReplyDelete
  38. How lovely all of these dresses are on Amber! What a fun day you must have had. It's wonderful that you and so many others were invited to join her!!!

    My fave is dress #2. Which is also the one I think Amber picked!! And maybe even you Roni! or #3??
    She is so pretty and when the day comes, I'm sure she would make even a burlap bag beautiful!!

    Thanks for the chance of a goodie bag!! Love your sense of fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. dress number 6 looks gorgeous on her

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love the 2nd dress, it is so beautiful on her, #4 fits her like a glove and is my first pick. I think is has picked #5. Stunning dresses, love them all.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh, my, what a hard decision! I love both dress #2 and dress #6, although she can only wear one dress (ha/ha) - so, I'd pick dress #6.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Однозначно - платье № 2. В нем она просто королева!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Two, 2, dos, II - Number 2 for me! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think number 2 is a definite winner. It is unique and just stunning. Looks like it was made for her.

  45. Dress #2 is beautiful on her. Love the detailing on the back. Bonus that it looks similar to one that Sookie on Gilmore Girls wore for her wedding. (The actress who played Sookie is now Molly on Mike and Molly.) Second choice for me is #3. But #2 is my favorite.

    Best wishes to her!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love #3 on her. Thanks for the give away.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh,she is beautiful in all them. It really hard to choose just one.I look several times and final vote for #6.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Beautiful daughter en lovely dresses. I like number 7. It looks gorgeous on her.

    ReplyDelete
  49. She's look great in most dresses...esp dress# 2 & 6. but I personally feels #6 looks the best .

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love dress 2. It's the perfect dress for AMber !

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think she picked dress #4. It looks really gorgeous and accents and enhances her figure. I can see you really had fun picking The Dress!

    ReplyDelete
  52. aw, she looks gorgeous in them all but if I had to pick one it would have be number 2.

    Hope she has a great day

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm thinking number 1 but I do like the others too ... hee hee hee. Cheers & good luck with everything. Cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I am going with #6 all the way. Several beautiful choices. Congratulations to her!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Absolutely #4. It is not only elegant, but it is very slimming and bridal like. She looks lovely in it.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I think #3 is stunning on her, and it's a gorgeous dress.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I loved #3 on her will give the most room for baby I think and comfort for her. She was stunning in all and will look even better on her special day as she will be glowing with happiness. Make sure you both have time for all the special moments ahead.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I imagine you will get votes on every "flavor" of dress, but I choose #4. I thought it was flattering and elegant. Congratulations!

    ReplyDelete
  59. For me number 6 is favorite :).
    Congratulations to you both!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Oh my gosh... she looks beautiful in all of them. You are so lucky so have such a beautiful woman in your family. And to have another generation on the way. God is love. She looks stunning in Dress #7. It fits her perfect, and I love the color.

    ReplyDelete
  61. She looks beautiful in all of them, but I like #2 the best.
    Congratulations on the upcoming events. Best of everything to all.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love dress #2. It is beautiful, classic looking, and very flattering. She looks great in it, and I bet it would look great in the wedding pictures. But I know most of the brides like the strapless ones. But they spend part of their time pulling them up!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Although they are ALL beautiful dresses, I have to say my two favorites are #2 and #7, leaning more to number 2. She has amazing taste and glows in all of them!

    ReplyDelete
  64. She's quite the beautiful young lady in #4!

    ReplyDelete
  65. They are all so lovely! My personal favorite is dress #2; it is very flattering on her and very elegant. Dress #6 is also gorgeous and looks very beautiful on her, too. It would look lovely with a jewel tiara. What a difficult choice! Congratulations to the bride and groom!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I'm leaning toward #2.... hard to pick, they are all so lovely!
    DeniseB

    ReplyDelete
  67. She truly looks lovely in all of them. However, I think dress 7 is the best.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I think #3 looks very flattering on her, that's my pick. The #3 picks seem to be the minority here. They are all really beautiful on!

    ReplyDelete
  69. #6 looked so pretty...just lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I think she looks so beautiful in dress 2 and dress 6.They are my favorites:)

    ReplyDelete
  71. i like dress 2 , i hope she likes this one the best

    ReplyDelete
  72. #3 looks very nice on her. changing the color of the bow would make #1 a winner too.

    ReplyDelete
  73. i apologize for the double post. blogger jumped in and gave me an error message on the first one, so i thought it didn't post.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Oh I love how she looks in dress #3. Both front and back of this gown are beautiful. I think this would be a comfortable dress as well. No fears of popping out or a need to constantley tug up on the gown. This is a day you want to be totally confindent in your gown and I think dress #3 fits the bill.

    ReplyDelete
  75. #6 was my favorite on her...cannot wait to hear what she picked...they all looked great! thanks for the chance to win...

    ReplyDelete
  76. I like #2 the best. She's going to make a beautiful bride.

  78. I hope she chose Dress #5, she's beautiful in all of them, but I like the dress with straps. I bet it was a tough choice for her.

    ReplyDelete
  79. It's 1 and 3 for my vote but they are all beautiful so any she picks will be fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Had to say it was #4. Beautiful dress, so elegant!
