@badcorebubbles: I’m in the same boat!  Tried it on at a trunk show today and I’m in looooove.  Also couldn’t take photos πŸ™  I can only one find image of it online, the one from the Watters website.  It really does not show the detail of the skirt – that’s what I loved about it, the double layer of organza and lace.  Did you end up ordering it?  If so, please post your pics!

@badcorebubbles: If you don’t mind, can you tell me what price you were able to get?  I tried it on at Macy’s bridal salon in Chicago and the original price was $2,400, with a 15% trunk show discount.  I’m not ready to pull the trigger yet and I know I should call around to see if I can get a better price, so can you tell me what ballpark I should be aiming for? 

The sales consultant added a beaded sash to the dress for me and I loved it.  We also tried a champagne satin sash, but I liked the sparkle of the beaded sash better.  She also added a nearly floor length veil which was gorgeous and matched the airy feel of the skirt.  I didn’t even think of doing buttons down the back, that’d be really nice!

@missgloves, that’s an amazing price!  I orderered mine in January at a trunk show in Toronto and got it for around $2300 (plus tax) I’m now wishing I got it for the price you were offered in Chicago (around 2000, nice!)!! I also saw it on bestbridalprices for 2200, but I don’t know anyone who has used the site so am not sure if it is super reliable or not!

I agree with you ladies – the dress is sooo beautiful. I ultimately was down to the Lasara or Devenport and finally felt like the Devenport won, it is perfect for women with bigger busts but a tiny waist πŸ™‚ The girl on the website does not do the dress justice πŸ˜‰ 

Were you guys told that it would be in during July? I’m getting married at the end of August so hope it comes in with no hitches – hehe!

I ordered the Devenport at a Trunk Show this weekend! Funny thing is, I actually already had a dress. I went to the Watters Trunk Show for bridesmaids, and saw it on the rack and just had to try it on. It was just love at first sight. Its so crazy, but I just couldn’t see my wedding without it! I paid around $2000 for it.

I actually didn’t buy the Devenport yet – it’s definitely still the front runner though!  It was only my second time dress shopping and my first trunk show.  I had no idea if the trunk show discount was actually reasonable or not and I kinda felt pressured from the sales consultant so I walked away.  The more I think about it the more I like it… it also has the right amount of “poof” in the skirt without being overwhelming and I think the length of the train is just right.  But my wedding’s not til April of next year so I’ve got plenty of time.  You ladies let me know if you’ve got a size 10 that you’d be willing to sell! πŸ˜‰

Hey ladies! I bought my Devenport at a salon in Northern VA about 3 weeks ago. I go the dress for just over $2000 including tax – they gave me the “trunk show” price, supposedly. I absolutely loved the dress. I’ll try to find the picture from the salon … the dress was a little bit big – but I felt beautiful in it and it was seriously light as air. Ah – here it is:

@marilovely – thanks for posting the pic, you look lovely πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

UGHHH ladies, I’m feeling so crappy now for paying 2600 (including tax, trunk show price) for that dress when you lovely people got it for around 2000! When I was buying the dress and told the boutique that it was retailing for 2200 on bestbridal they gave me a shpeel on how they’re Watters certified via the official website (which is true) and wouldn’t be cheating me on the price of the dress, it’s within the range Watters recommends.

But now I’m feeling cheated — should I call them back and rant about the price and see if they’ll lower it (I’ve paid 50% as deposit so far)?

Hi ladies, thanks for all the info – I finally took the plunge and bought the dress!!  I was in NYC for work and I ended up getting the dress from RK Bridal for $2,100 plus $30 shipping to Chicago, no tax.  I took some quick pictures and will post them when I unload them off my camera.  In the meantime, I found a video of the dress – enjoy!

Here it is!  I liked the beaded belt with it, but will probably do something a little thinner.  Also attached is a picture of the layers of lace on the skirt, which is one of my favorite parts of the dress!

Hmm, well that didn’t work! Will try to figure out how to post pics later.
