- Wedding: October 2012
With my wedding a month away, I had to start a thread about my dress! We’re having a Princess and the Frog themed wedding, and I went with a ball gown style dress.
My wedding is in October, and I actually ordered my dress way back in February because I was skeptical about ordering my dress from an overseas store online. (I wanted to make sure I had plenty of time to change or get a new dress if it was completely awful lol).
All the brides here on Weddingbee and other message boards who have shared their DressilyMe experience actually encouraged me to take a chance and order my dress.
This is the dress that I ordered from them, with slight changes. I asked for them to make it strapless, and add a matching lace bolero jacket, and to add a bustle to the train.
At the time I ordered my dress it cost $230 with the custom measurments, jacket, and shipping. The dress itself is actually even cheaper now, but I still saved a ton on the dress.
I ended up buying my pedicoat and undergarments from David’s Bridal. I could have saved money by getting undergarments from somewhere else, but I actually wanted to try on the undergarments WITH my dress before I bought them. I’m glad I did!
I also want to add that the customer service at DressilyMe was great! They answered all my questions, and the dress is amazing! I can’t want until after the wedding so I can send them a proper customer appreciation photo. I would definitely recommend their online store to other brides!
Here is the dress design from DressilyMe’s website
And here’s my actual dress, with bolero jacket!
My first time trying the dress on! I was really surprised at the quality of the details

The gorgeous bodice details!

And this is a photo of me in the dress at David’s Bridal with proper undergarments to make the skirt nice and full! I’m in love with my dress. This photo was taking in March, and I actually lose about 20 pounds since then, and the dress fits great still. I had to get it the skirt himmed, because the shoes I ended up choosing were shorter than I thought they would be when I ordered the dress.
