Yes!  I absolutely would.  I love my dress, even more now that it’s been altered to fit me perfectly.  😉

I don’t know, I love my dress, but I still lust after Belle

Definitely! My dress works the best on my body type. I’ve had dress envy before of other girls’ dresses but in the end I am super super excited to wear the dress I picked back in February!

Yes!  I love my dress.  I might have only ordered one size up to accomodate my bust though (instead of the two they recommended and that I ordered).  They currently have a lot of taking in to do on the waist, and I am worried it won’t fit me as perfectly there as the sample did.  *Sigh*

Yes, I would.  I probably would not have bought the other dresses afterwards though.

My dress was one of the best parts of the day. I would not change the dress!

Hm, probably not. I would have either just worn my grandma’s dress (my original plan) or gone up north and tried on Mori Lees like I wanted to. But if I’d still go to the shop here, then…yeah, probably.

Absolutely! I received so many compliments from people during my wedding that I would 100% buy it again. Even the venue coordinators asked where I bought it and said it was one of their favorites that have come through so far. I also didn’t have to alter anything to fit!

@7monthbride:  I might have…not sure. I probably would have put my foot down and not let my mother-n-law go though.

No I wouldn’t have.  I would have waited until we reserved the reception site (we would set dates but a lot of unforseeable things made us push the date back, I lost my job, FI mother passed away, grandmother had a heart attack etc).  I love the dress I bought but at the time it went with the vision I had for the wedding.  Now my vision is different and my dream dress is lace.  Also the dress I bought is retired so there is no way I could buy it now.

Yes and no– I would want the same end product, but I probably would have just had it custom made instead ofbuying a dres then altering it– but at the time I didn’t realize how affordable it was to have a dress made.  

 

This is what I bought: 

 

And this is what I wore (standing w/ my brother):
