- Wedding: September 2013
Hello fellow Bees! I would love some of your expert opinions if you don’t mind 🙂
First of all, meet Madison! She is from the Priscilla of Boston Vineyard Collection.
I fell in love with her awhile ago but unfortunately as many of us know, POB is now out of business. But to be honest, not sure I would have had the money to afford her anyways!
On that note, I am ordering a replica from Dressilyme. I have done my research and am fully aware that some Bees have had bad experiences with the company. However, I need something cheap and I need it fast! My FI is immigrating to the US from Denmark so we will be having a very small wedding under certain time constraints thanks to the gov’t. Dressilyme gave me an estimate of 20-25 days (plus shipping time) and that is exactly what I need!
Anywho… moving on. I would love if some of you could give me your opinions on the following things:
1. Material? To me it looks like silk satin with organza overlay… fabric savvy Bees I’d love if you could confirm this! Or maybe some of you think it would look better in a different fabric?
2. The belt! Not a fan so I am ix-naying the satin belt for a sewn-in full pearl sash. Was thinking about having it 1″-1.5″ wide or so. Do you think thinner or thicker is better?
3. Anything else you think I should mention to Dressilyme?
And just as a side note: I am definitely having a scoop corset back and I will talk about maybe having a sewn-in crinoline if it is needed.
Thanks for your help in advance 🙂 can’t wait to get the ball rolling and order my dress!
