Wedding Dress Try-On


Happy Monday, friends! Today's post is really exciting (and emotional) for me because I'm sharing my experience trying on wedding dresses for the first time! Some girls know EXACTLY what style of wedding dress they want from a young age, but I was quite the opposite - I had no earthly idea what I wanted the dress to look like. So on Monday of last week, I ventured into J. Major's Bridal Boutique with an open mind, and my mom by my side. 

Although I ended up trying on dozens of dresses, today I'm showing you the gowns I tried on from the couture brand Martina Liana. Each Martina Liana gown is customizable, so you can pretty much create a gown that's unique to you. With a mix of silhouettes and a range of fabrics, there truly is something for every bride in this collection. And at the end of this post I would actually love to get YOUR opinion about which style you can see me getting married in!! 


The first one I tried on is this trumpet silhouette Luxe Vintage Wedding Gown (Style 904). This dress has a vintage feel with lattice detailing, lace and tulle over Dolce satin. I really liked this gown because a trumpet skirt helps creates an hourglass silhouette, so I felt very womanly and confident in this one. And, just look at the skirt - have you ever seen such pretty lace detailing?! This dress comes in four different fabric colors and two different beading colors.
 

 The next style I tried on is this Illusion Lace Long-Sleeved wedding gown (Style 870). Ever since Kate Middleton got married in a long-sleeve dress, I have thought they were SO beautiful and elegant. This one has skin-colored mesh on the neck and sleeves, so it appears that the lace is "floating" over the skin. Embroidered French lace and a mix of pearl and bugle beads make this gown truly unique, and a soft, lace train extends from the skirt. The only reason I am questioning this one, is because I think the long sleeves might be too hot for a Charleston wedding! 


The next style is a high-neck wedding gown (Style 874) with a fit-and-flare silhouette. I fell in LOVE with the back of this one! The lace racerback design is the highlight of this dress and is perfectly complemented with a multi-layer tulle and organza skirt and train. Plus the pearl buttons on the back are so beautiful. I thought the fit-and-flare silhouette was figure-flattering, and there are semi-sheer, side cutouts that add a little bit of sexiness to the style, too. 


Next up is another fit-and-flare silhouette, the gorgeous French-Inspired Lace wedding dress (Style 905). This one has a delicate linear paneling that really highlights curves (I look like I actually have hips, woohoo!). The bold lace adds dimension to this silhouette, and the fabric has a soft sparkle which adds a hint of glam. I feel like any bride who wears this should be getting married in the French countryside, haha!


This dress (Style 694) is a little more simple than the other ones, but the lace detailing is so intricate and beautiful, it still makes a statement.  I really love the sweetheart neckline on this one, and the nude fabric with white lace overlay. Because the dress is more simple, I feel like you could really get creative with a gorgeous hairstyle!


The last dress I tried on is this ballgown style Princess wedding dress (style 902). I wasn't expecting to like this style, but I really loved it when I put it on - I felt like a "bride!" It truly is a princess wedding dress, yet it has a semi-sheer bodice that adds an unexpected element of sexiness to this style. Plus, the full skirt helps to create the illusion of a small waist. The skirt is made of multi-layer tulle and the dress has a deep V-back with pearl buttons. 

As you can see, each and every Martina Liana gown is so beautiful, and also completely customizable (so you can change different parts of the dress to create your unique dream dress!). I tried these gowns on at J. Major's Bridal Boutique in Charlotte, but click here to find where Martina Liana gowns are available near you. 

And finally, I'd love to know... which style was your favorite?! Please comment below and let me know know! My mom and I both liked a certain style best, and I'd love to see if you guys are thinking the same thing! :) 

xoxo

    The high neck one with the beautiful lace back was also stunning.

  29. Of course you look beautiful in ALL of these, but I have to say the last one (princess) just seems to 'fit' you. I love the actual fit, but even more it just screams Caitlin :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love the very first one pictured with the open back! The simplicity of the lace in contrast to the open back is beautiful! My other favorite was the high-neck with the lace and button racerback detail. They all look beautiful on you. Congratulations!!

  31. Luxe Vintage and the French-Inspired Lace wedding dress are my faves on you!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Wow. You look amazing. The love the Luxe Vintage best and then the French inspired Lace. I just feel the last one overwhelmes your figure. But only you will know which dress makes you feel like a princess. But honestly, I don't think you could go wrong with any dress you try on.

    ReplyDelete
  33. My favorite is the first one, the trumpet silhouette Luxe Vintage Wedding Gown. Absolutely beautiful and it fits you perfectly too.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow. You look incredible. I love the Luxe vintage and the French Inspired dress. Too me, the last one overwhelmes your figure. But, only you will know which one is best for you. Honestly, you would look amazing in any dress you try on.

  52. #5!! It is very simple, but in the loveliest, most elegant way. I think it creates room for your own beauty to be the centerpiece. 😊 And it would be perfect with a showstopping hairstyle and long veil!

    But since you love the princess style (I do too!) you could look at more like it and find one that really enchants you.

    You look lovely in all of them.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Although I think you look beautiful, none of these dresses really scream Caitlin to me... I guess I picture you in something more delicate and feminine without the heavy lace fabrics. I envision you in something to accentuate you're beautiful tiny waist with a low back! Not that my opinion matters, but I'm sure you will find the most perfect dress for your fairytale evening! :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Beautiful! Loved the t back dress on you and the simple one. All so elegant!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I mean, every single dress looks amazing on you beautiful. You can do no wrong with any of them!!!

    My favorite is the 3rd from last "French-Inspired Lace" wedding dress. It looks so amazing and like it was made for you.

    However, I'm sure whatever you chose will look stunning on you. The most important thing is that you love it 110%. Can wait to see the dress on the actual day! So happy for you dear.

    Thank you for taking us on this such personal adventure with you.

  58. I love them all on you, Caitlin. However, I must say the high neck dress with the detailed back and pearl buttons was the best of them all! My next pick would be the lace sleeves if you were getting married in the fall or winter!

  59. Love the French inspired lace dress or the high neck dress - beautiful and timeless. :)

  60. I love the very top one with that deep back but since its not an option I am going to go with the French inspired.... that razor back dress though is amazing! Its just hard not seeing what the front looks like on you! All of them are so gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Girl, you are going to be the most GORGEOUS bride! So excited to see photos after your wedding and see which dress you chose (and the wedding decor)! I really don't think you could go wrong with any of the dresses! I'm drawn to the last one though :)

  63. Beautiful!!! I liked the second dress on you, the one with the cage-like on the bodice. You have the perfect figure for it.
    When I was doing my wedding dress shopping last fall I was secretive with ALL my photos, haha. I didnt want my fiance (now husband) or anyone to see me in a wedding dress until it was my wedding day! I feel like the day is so special and a big deal I can't imagine having the people in my life see me in wedding dresses before the big day - it takes away from the bridalness of the DAY OF!! Ah, but you are stunning in all of them!

  72. Wow, so stunning! My favorite is the sweetheart neckline dress. I noticed YOU in the dress, if that makes sense. The others my eye was drawn more to the dress itself and off you. You're gorgeous in all of them!

  73. I love the last dress you wore! You looked stunning in it!!

  74. How does one pick a favorite when you rocked them all? However I think my vote will have to go to the one with the sweetheart neckline and capped sleeves. Any style you choose will look stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I think the very first one looks the most amazing on you out of all of them! You definitely have the body type for it!

    ReplyDelete
  76. You looked stunning in all of them. But the last (simple) dress looks more like your style (to me). It is classic and elegant and wouldn't compete with you.

  80. I really love them all! They're all so gorgeous but I think I like the one you referred to as the "simpler" one- the one you could get creative with a hairstyle! That one is my favorite, but you look stunning in all of them and all of them are to die for! Cheers ♥

    ReplyDelete
  81. You look gorgeous in all of the dresses Cait! My personal faves have to be the second last one with the sweetheart neckline or the very last one (princess style) Can't wait to see which one you choose! xo

    ReplyDelete
  82. I would be a little concerned about the mesh. Will it endure long enough to pass the dress down to the next generation? Also, will is discolor in time? Just a thought.
    No matter what you choose you will be a gorgeous bride! Thanks for taking us along on the journey.

    ReplyDelete
  83. You look Ahhhh Maaaaazing in all of them. But you are such a true southern girl that I see you in the ballgown style. Honestly, you really cannot go wrong with whatever style you feel is right for you!! Go with what your instincts tells you!

    ReplyDelete
  84. You look absolutely gorgeous in every single one!!! You must have had every eye in the salon on you!!!! You seem to be a true southern girl so I see you in the ballgown style, however trust your instincts because with that body you can choose no wrong!!!

  85. Great post! Style 902 is definitely my pick for you... so feminine, romantic, and fresh! They're all gorgeous on you though - you can't go wrong!

  87. You look absolutely gorgeous in all of them! My favorite is definitely 694. I was thinking you would look perfect in something with a cap sleeve and sure enough, I thought that one was fantastic. I also loved how the intricate lace didn't look heavy. I think you would also look great in something with a wide v neck!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Style 904 with a little bit of bling! 😍 You could honestly pull off any wedding dress though! You're going to make a stunning bride!

  98. So happy for you Caitlin! You look amazing in all of them but I love the racerback on you or the princess ball gown. However, like you said... a Charleston wedding is going to be hot so I'm leaning towards the racerback (or a similar style) so you're not dying of heat under all that princess ball gown tulle haha. Chris is one lucky guy! So happy for the both of you, can't say it enough haha!

  101. I like the first one! I just got married a month ago and I had a ballgown dress and just like you, I did not think I would like it but I loved it. The only problem was that going to the bathroom and sitting down at the table was very difficult! Just a little piece of advice and something to think about! ��

  110. You will look perfect no matter which one you decide! I love how they all have a lace detail!

I can't wait to see what you choose, thanks for sharing such a special time with us! ~Stephanie

  111. Loved the 5th dress (694) loved the lace detailing and the sweatheart neckline on you! Kind of reminded me of my dress at little. What was the back on this dress like? I think you could also add a belt to his dress. Mind came with a belt but I ordered it detached and then ended up adding it back in. My dress was lace also and the belt was a silver beaded belt to give it some bling. I think a beaded, pearl belt would look really pretty! Your going to make a beautiful bride!

    ReplyDelete
  112. They're all lovely and they fit you so nicely, but I personally just do not care for sheer torsos of wedding gowns. Sleeves and backs are okay, but sheer torsos just seem so juvenile - and even a little cheap. There are so many ways to be sexy, but I just don't care for that style. I think you're such a classic beauty and something like the long sleeve really complements you as a gorgeous, classic style while still being fun and trendy. No matter what you choose - you'll be a stunning bride!!

    ReplyDelete
  113. They all looked stunning! But that last princess dress is on a whole other level! So beautiful :)

  114. 694! Looks classic, and if you wear your hair down I think it would be the best one for that.

  115. You look amazing in all of them! I really loved the princess one (style 902) and the one with the high neck and razor back (style 874). But you will look gorgeous in which ever one you choose! I'm sure your momma just LOVED being by your side during that special moment.

  117. Such beautiful gowns! The first fit n flare really suited you! Also the princess gown blew me away! Maybe you could do the princess for the ceremony and fit n flare for your reception! They make removable skirts so your not getting two seperate gowns! Hope this helps! Congratulations and I know you'll look beautiful in whatever gown you choose!

  118. So, these are all so amazing! The dress that I ended up choosing (and will be wearing this November) is from Essence of Australia, and I COULD NOT be more in love with it. It has an illusion back similar to the third one you posted (Style 874) and it's just stunning. I'm obsessed with it. The only downside to a dress like that, where it has so much detail going down the back, is that it takes a bit of ingenuity to figure out how to configure the bustle, but my alterations expert is a genius and we figured out how to pull it off. That one was my favorite out of all the ones you tried on! In order to truly showcase the back, I'm wearing my hair in a long fishtail braid that will be slung over one shoulder. You could absolutely pull off something similar!! ❤️

  119. Though you look absolutely stunning in them all, 694 just really made a statement and made that "wow factor" to me! Whichever you end up choosing, you're going to make a BEAUTIFUL bride!!

  125. You look stunning in all of them and most important you are getting married in your dream dress. With that being said I love the French silhouette and the high neck with pearls. But in all honesty you can't go wrong with any of them. Beautiful!! Can't wait to see which one you go with!

  136. You wear these dresses SO well! I'm going dress shopping in September and have been wanting to try on 904 and 905, and I love seeing them in their natural state on a real bride versus an airbrushed photo on Martina Liana's website. I think you should go with 905, it looks amazing on you!

  144. I like 2: Luxe Vintage #904 and Illusion Lace, long-sleeve #870. I'm guessing your fav was #870. Sandy from Charlotte

  145. I have 2 favs: Luxe Vintage #904. I'm guessing that is your Mom's fav. And I think the Illusion Lace, Long-sleeve #870 is your fav. But then you look great in all of them!

  146. Everything looks stunning on you, but 694! It really highlights your curves, and the cap sleeves balance out the hip area so beautifully. Plus, you get a little sleeve action that's still hot weather friendly! I'm a suck for sweetheart necklines!

  151. Love style 694. Classic but not boring. Easy for both wedding ceremony and dancing afterward at reception.

  152. Love the form fitting ones on you! Not a huge fan of the princess look or the long sleeve one. Show off your incredible figure!

    ReplyDelete
  153. Style 694 is definitely my favorite! It's so simple and elegant, perfect for a wedding in Charleston and really lets you shine and be the star...you wear the dress, don't let the dress wear you!
