I went to a Melissa Sweet trunk show this weekend purposely to try on “Dora”. I love “Dora” in pics. I’ve seen other brides wearing it and just kept thinking “Yep.. this is it!”. Then I put her on and I felt nothing. She was pretty… just not on me. I was a little sad….until the Melissa Sweet Rep told me of “Dora’s” new sister “GiGi”!!!! I put on “GiGi” and it was love at first sight! I hadn’t seen “Gigi” on their website and she said its super new.. the website hasn’t been updated yet. The salon I went to wouldn’t allow pics =( but even though the dress was a size 2 and didn’t fit really well.. I could really picture myself in it. Then they put a veil on and my face just lit up!
I sent my mom some pics and she hates it. Haha! Typical. She is in love with “Dora” still. oh well… Its my day!
What do you ladies think of Melissa Sweet’s “GiGi”?????

Oooh – I like it, especially the back.

I would wear Gigi over Dora because I’m more drawn to the trumpet /fit & flare silhouette. I really like it! 🙂

Not offering much new here but for anyone interested – I tried this on today and it is GORGEOUS! It fits really nicely, and the material just floats and looks so whimsical!
I tried the Dora too, which is very pretty, but the Gigi I just didn’t want to take off. LOVE.
Mostly I’ve read on WB that POB doesn’t allow you to take pictures, and besides that I forgot to even ask if I could because I was having so much fun swishing around in the dress! I’m going to go back with a friend in a few weeks to show it to her and get a better sale on it, so I will post pics then.

Hey AllisonMarie, yeah I do think I’ll get her! It was love at first ‘try on’, haha. I will probably have them cut the sweetheart a little deeper, other than that she’s perfect! I’ll post pics as soon as I go back and take some 🙂

Any Gigi brides….how far down does the fitted portion go? Under the derriere, mid-derriere, above the derriere? Basically, just how many curves does this fit-n-flare show? I’m pretty sure this is my gown, but I want to make sure my bottom won’t look flat, etc.
