@Jenny7:  gorgeous dress!!  I have been in the hunt for wedding dresses myself, and I LOVE Pronovias’ designs!  They are super out of my price range, so I am seriously considering going the dressilyme/fabulousU/jasminesbridalshop route for my pronovias replica. 

PLEASE keep us posted on your dress progress!!!  I’m dying to see the results of your beautiful gown. And congrats!!

@Jenny7:  I think the skirt will sit a lot different with the giant hoop the model has, the pickup detail looks too straight, but you can tell it will sit different with a hoop. Perhaps you could ask them to take some more photos with a large hoop underneath so you can get a feel of the skirt? 🙂

@Jenny7:  I see what your looking at, but just compare them once more; notice how the professionally shot dress has been pressed to lay in place? You will get that done before you wear it, and those cascades that come off the pickup will lay much flatter. A good seamstress will also be able to stitch those waves so they stay flatter. I thought the same thing with most pickup skirts when I was trying on dresses, they sat too high off the skirt, looked too poufy etc. But my MOH (former amazing seamstress) showed me how, once permanently pressed into place (think of how you have to press pleats in a skirt, but less extreme) they look much much better 🙂 You could explain to them you would like them to be pressed to lay closer to the skirt and they should be able to do so for you 🙂 It seriously is a gorgeous replica though, and I think once you have it on youll be amazed 😀
