Here is a picture of MY dress! I am anxiously waiting for it to arrive 😀 At first I felt guilty for buying a dress online without trying it on or including my family, but I really LOVE this dress and the designer and never in a million years could I afford this otherwise (used ones start at $4500 and I paid $700 for a brand new floor model). Not to mention that 100% of my proceeds go to support victims of domestic violence. The customer service was EXCELLENT and probably the best I have received in a long time.
I was hoping someone had some pictures of this dress in a non-model 🙂 Send them my way!! Also, I was hoping for advice on which dress you guys like better. The pnina tornai above, or the decadence or topaz below?? Just want to make sure i made the right decision :p

@kill1nmesmalls: I usually really dislike Pnina dresses…but not in this case! that dress is beautiful and I definitely like it better than those Maggies.

Very pretty! It’s different but still classic in certian ways. I like the Topaz as well but honestly it sounds like you’re way too excited about the Pnina gown for it not to be ‘the one.’ Congrats!

I definitely like your Pnina more. It’s gorgeous! Congrats!

I love so many of Pnina’s dresses (not the ones with the sheer bodices, however), and the one you selected is gorgeous! I like it better than the other two gowns you were considering, and I think you will find that the construction and quality will be much better as well.

I admit, I am partial to Pnina because I own a few of her gowns, but I think the Pnina gown you chose is very nice!

The thing with the Pnina too, is that it will probably fit you far better than the Maggies. Customers are paying the extra money for both the name AND the quality.

Love your dress! I think it’s beautiful! I’m a Church Street Bridal bride too! I just bought mine this week from the Kleinfeld shipment! I can’t wait til it comes in! And I was impulsive too, buying it without trying it on, ever. But when I called, they said someone had it on in the room, even though I emailed them, they’d have to sell it if she wanted it. I was SO relieved that she bought a different dress! Best impulse buy, ever! 🙂

@kill1nmesmalls: Thanks 🙂 I just hope that I love it as much in person as I think I will! I def. had to make a rush decision too and two other brides were calling in to purchase it but I am SO glad that I got it! I will post pictures when it comes 😀

What a beautiful dress! I too am eyeing a dress from Church Street Bridal. I have never tried on a wedding dress & am too scared to buy it before trying it on (or a similar style). Congrats on your amazing purchase! 🙂

@brunetteinlove: Well my best recommendation is to run out and try on a local dress that has a similar cut. I personally had tried on a few but not many mermaids which is the only thing I am afraid of but I didnt want to risk missing out on such a beautiful dress! If you like the cut of the dresses you try and the design of the pic then I say it is worth the gamble, especially if you are saving a ton because you can always offer it to another bee at what you paid if you just hate it. Plus, all of the proceeds benefit such a great cause!
@brunetteinlove: By The Way what dress it ? send pics 🙂
