Ok so here’s the deal… The dress… Is amazing.. Fun and so me.. It’s slightly expensive considering my dad has nt offered to pay for anything,,, my mom is paying for the venue… And my papa can’t help as much as he wanted to because he just had major spinal surgery . So a lot… A lot a lot of the wedding j and I will be paying for ourselves. I have found this dress online for almost $1000 less than any of the shops I have gone to. Has anyone else ordered offline? My wedding is still 11 months away so I’m thinking that maybe if it needs altering or if something is wrong I will have plenty of time.?

Not sure where you found this dress, but I bought my dress as a brand new sample at a bridal salon for $900. So the dress itself shouldn’t be over $1000 in the first place. This was my wedding dress and I LOVED it. SO much prettier than in photos.
Don’t know what size you are, but I was thinking about selling mine. I had the bustline altered into a sweetheart neckline. (Wearing with a bolero in the photos). I bought a 16, but it was taken in before the wedding, so probably about a 14. PM if you are interested. I think this dress is sold pretty frequently on Once Wed or Preowned Wedding Dresses by other sellers if you are a different size. Usually in the $700 range.

I purchased my Gurl(sample dress) from yourdreamdress.com. 85% off of retail. Alterations are normally done 6wks prior so you’ll have plenty time to get alterations.

Oh you skinny minnie. 😉 Yeah, I’m just wearing a little bolero jacket on that because I didn’t want to show too much skin in the dress. I’ve seen plenty of girls wearing it by itself and its gorgeous. Its a really light dress that’s easy to wear – not heavy at all, but substantial enough that it doesn’t seem flimsy. The beading on the bodice is GORGEOUS and the swiss dot overlay is what killed me. So cute. I got it in ivory/ivory and it was the perfect creamy off-white. My mom couldn’t believe I got the dress so cheap, for what it looked like. I had been in love with at Pronovias dress for $2500 before I found this one, so I was STOKED to find something I loved more that I could totally afford. (I was NOT in a position to spend thousands of dollars on a wedding dress!) The best part is that the dress comes with a one point French bustle so I didn’t have to pay to get one made. My consultant told me lots of Casablanca dresses come pre-bustled? So that was great.

This is a very popular dress, so I would check the various used dress sites and see if you can find it before ordering a knockoff.
