Oh my God…yes!!!! I fell in love with a dress from “Impressions” they’re stuff looks so pretty and dreamy on the ads but the quality left a lot to be desired. Funny is that their prices are similar to Maggie Sottero but her quality is so much better.

Oh yes. Its so disappointing. I fell in love with an allure dress and when I saw it in person it was so different.

Yeppers!  Just shows you how models are not the best to be posing around in wedding dresses.  I guess that’s why it’s just so important to try on the dress in person and see how it works with your body.

I’ve noticed that as well…but really, most clothes are like that…and sometimes, soemthing that looks ‘eh’ in print or even on the hanger looks AMAZING on!

Yes yes yes. The power of models and the Photoshop liquify tool. :p

Some of the Judd Waddell (sp?) dresses I fell sooo in love with in the mags, then in person I was like, hm. This looks super matronly! No way Jose.

I felt that way about Eden bridal dresses.  They just didn’t fit right.  It was like a totally different dress from the one in the ad.

You know what I found most misleading was the colour.  The ad photos just give many of the dresses a different dimension of colour and when I went to see a few dresses, the details just didn’t pop as I expected.

I felt that way about a Mon Cheri. I was IN LOVE with the picture and absolutely hated it in person. Even the silhouette was nothing like the picture.

Yeah, I had that problem…it’s pretty depressing. BUT, on the other side of that, I totally lucked out and the dress that I fell head over heels with online I loved even more in person and ended up buying it! 🙂

YES, and now it’s happening again with bridesmaid dresses.  They look so different in person!
