- Wedding: August 2013
(sorry i posted this twice – i got it in the wrong category the first time and cant figure out how to change it =/)
Thanks for the advice you’ve all already inadvertantly given me (I’ve been creeping this site for almost a year lol!)
I think I have fiiinally found THE DRESS. (after 8 stores, multiple visits, etc) It’s the one I’ve been obsessed with since I saw it online before I’d even started trying on!
MORI LEE 1851.
NOW – HERE’S SOME PICTURES OF ME IN THE DRESS =D!! (Note: It looks a little off on me right now.. I’m fairly small, a size 2-4, the sample they had was a size 10, so it was quite loose)
There are 2 main reasons I want to go with a replica:
1) Cost – we are on a very tight budget for the wedding. We splurged on the venue a little more than we were originally planning, but fell in love, so we have to make cutbacks other place. Also, I really disagree with paying just for a label.
2) I want to make a few changes and customize it a bit. I want to lower the neckline into a slightly deeper V (with wearing a fuller long sleeve dress I do not want to feel super modest or matronly). I’m not wearing sleeves for any religious or modesty reasons.. I just love the vintage look. I also want to lower the back V down to the middle band (so about another inch down), I want the buttons to trail all the way down the skirt in the back to the end of the train, and I want to cut off a good portion of the train (I only want a slight train.)
This is not a simple dress – have you guys heard of any quality replica companies that can do this kind of detail and also some custom changes?
