I got Casablanca 1881 and I love it! My experience has been pretty good so far. I’m supposed to get my dress in by mid April. They custom cut it to fit your measurments and will customize just about anything. My dress was $740, but I’ve seen the same dress for up to double that in other areas of the country.

I ordered 1804, and it was around $800. But I customized the neckline to a sweetheart, so that was a little extra. I ordered it in early October and they said it should be here in February (I’m so excited!!) As soonerpsych said, they’ll customize anything, including length, so I should only need minor alterations, so they shouldn’t add much to the price!

Mine was a Casablance 1831 and I loved it! It was around $700 (can’t remember exactly anymore). I am a street size 12, plus I am only 5’1″, and it was very flattering on me. They did the hollow to hem measurements when I ordered and other than that I only had to have the top taken in a bit.
A friend of mine, who is plus sized, also bought this dress and she looked stunning on her wedding day.

I love mine!!! I cant until March to see my baby again! Casablanca’s are labeled by numbers so they dont have a name, i named mine the ‘Casablanca Tammy’ lol. I paid $1000 and was worth every penny! It has lace, pearls, swarvoski crystals going down the train and in the bust area, i absolutely love it, its the trumpet style and its in white.

I got the Casablanca 1932 (the non-coture version of yours, @stephromo!!!). I ordered it in early October and it should be here this month!!!! They were able to make it into a sweetheart neckline and v down the back a little for me. I paid just over $1000 for mine (that included the extra for the alterations). They do custom order it to your exact size. I love love love mine and can’t wait to see her in person!

Hello! I too am a Casablanca Bride 🙂 Casablanca 1901 in Ivory.
My dress, with hollow to hem measurement, was $1200. The actual dress was $899, but with the custom fit, tax, etc. it came out higher.
I ordered July 11, was told it would be in early February, and it came in November 6th.

I was very close to buying this dress —
It was tagged at $899, but the salon was offering it for $799.

Hi everybody —
What’s the difference between Casablanca Bridal and Casablanca Couture? My bff got married in Casablanca 1920 but she can’t remember if it was a Couture or not. She’s a little spacey!!!!!
Also — there were a bunch of posts about Casablanca dresses — or maybe even *all* dresses made n Asia — something about factories closing in January or February and so they’re late. We’re thinking about 10-10-2010 …. so trying to figure out timing. Not easy cuz my fiance is military and we never know where he’s going to be!!!!
Weddingbee rocks! TIA for yr help. Sam (Samantha)
