Hey everyone, I FOUND MY DRESS! It’s a Lilli Isaac…has anyone esle heard of her? She is apparently only sold in smaller boutiques throughout the US and Canada. I am getting married June 5 and went dress shopping recently assuming i would have to wait 4-6 months for a dress to come in. Instead, the dress I fell in love with was a one of a kind and had to be bought off the rack so it is already mine! My question is whether or not I should store it laying down or hanging up since it will be sitting around for 9 months. Also, what type of bag is the best to keep it in and what would you recommend for maintenence to make sure dust doesnt collect?
The bow/ribbon is going to be removed during alterations, IMHO, I think it just ruins this beautiful dress!!

It is a beautiful dress! From what I have heard it would be best to store laying down. But I don’t really know about that….my dress has been at the shop since May and I am sure it is hanging up. Maybe as long as you use those hangar straps and wrap it around the hanger to lessen the pull. Also keep it away from a window so the sun does not change the color.
I love the dress! I agree though – it probably would look nicer without the bow. But either way it is gorgeous!

I absolutely love this dress! I was also able to buy my dress off the rack and it lifted so much stress off my shoulders! I was worried about ordering a dress and having it be the wrong size or different from the one I tried on.
Buying a dress off the rack is definitely the way to go!

It’s really pretty. I agree it will look better without the ribbon. I’d say hanging is better, but I’m not really sure.

Thanks for all your kind words! I was really going for a romantic dress…not a big poofy princess one. Unfortunately I hate hate hate bows and it will be coming off. It is also about a size too big which is why they had to use the clips so I will have to get all that taken in about 3 months before the wedding. I assume it shouldnt be too big of a job esp since its just a zip up and not a corset.
