@nordicbride2014:  I loved that dress and thought about ordering it.  But all of the JCrew dresses I had tried on from previous seasons looked horrendous on me–they were just cut terribly for my shape (slim but not totally straight, and short).  No risk in ordering it, though!

I bought this gown!!  It is stunningly gorgeous.  Seriously, like it’s better looking in person than on the website for sure.  The fabric is so soft and flowy and smooth.  If you’re in love with it just through the pictures, then you’ll love it in person.  I too have been having a hard time finding pictures of ‘real brides’ in this gown, but it’s kind of nice knowing its one of the more unique ones out there on the internet 🙂  

I have pictures of me in it, (the dress is still unaltered) so if anyone wants to see what it looks like, I could email one to you.  I’m not 100% comfortable with having pictures of me in it before the wedding day on the internet 🙂

kallie:  coupld quick questions, i noticed the lace has some bling or sequence…..do you find this is too much, can you even notice it?

 

Did it run large or small?

would you mind sending me a pic? I am seriously debating ordering it even though I have never tried it on.

julybride2014:  Hi!  Yep, there are some small rhinestones and some beading on the lace.  It’s definitely not at all overpowering, it just adds a bit of sparkle.  I didn’t think I would like a dress with any bling on it at all, but it is so delicate!

Size wise, it runs pretty true.  I just went by the sizing/ measurement chart, and made sure to order up a bit. My waist is between 29-30″ so I ordered the size 10.  It fits, with some room, so I will need to get it taken in a bit but there is room in case I end up gaining weight.  Also, I’m 5’7″ and planning to wear flat sandals (outdoor wedding, all grass… so heels would be silly) and it will definitely need to be hemmed.  Unless you’re 6ft tall with/ without heels, you will need to get it hemmed.

I’ll send you a picture or two in a private message 🙂
