I’m married! Below are some pictures of the dress.  I had most of the train cut off since we were getting married in a masion on the beach, and had the skirt taken in about 8 inches so it was more of an a-line. No bustling needed. I must say, if you are a petite bride, I would reconsider this dress.  I have a very small core- and ordered a size 2- which needed to be taken in! It was still loose around my stomach because the boning can’t be taken in more.  I have an great abs, and the dress has so much of the detail around the waist that your figure gets lost in it. Even my husband commented that although the dress is incredible, it doesn’t really accentuate my tiny waist- i look like i have a more boyish figure than hourglass. If you are more of an apple figure this dress is certainly the dress for you.  The dress was pretty comfortable!

@lilymerr:  Your wedding photos are lovely. You and your husband look so happy together. I am very excited to wear this dress in my wedding 5 months from now. Though, I do have some feedback on your comments. Please do not take my comments the wrong way (I just felt the need to defend my dress a little).

First, as a bride wearing this dress I resent the term apple figure (an apple being a large round shape). I prefer hourglass figure or curvy. I love how Casablanca 1992 hugs my curves and makes my small waist look even smaller.

Second, I know you felt the dress hid your waist, but I would say some of this was due to removing length/volume to make the dress a a-line vs. a slightly fuller ball gown. By removing the volume, you lose the complete emphasis on the waist, something I feel the length and the beading are designed to accentuate.

Third, I know you wanted to remove the train due to you venue, but you removed one of my favorite parts (and one of the major style elements of the dress). The see-through overlay with the lace is what helps make the lines of the dress so elegant and slimming. By removing half of the detailing of the train and the length of the skirt, you lose the long lines that draw the eye up to the waist detailing that contributes to a more slender appearence. (As a size 2 you might not be as concerned with slenderizing, but I feel that it is intended in the dress prattern and cut.)

It truly sounds like you really wanted an a-line dress that emphasized your tight stomach and petite size, not the ball-gown with long lines and a chapel train you selected.

In the end, you should still be happy. You were a beautiful bride and have wonderful pictures and memories for the years to come.

I’m officially married! I loved my dress, it was very comfortable! I’m a D cup and didn’t feel like I needed a bra and wasn’t tugging at my dress all night. It was perfect! I did wear a slip underneath – just a regular A-line skirt from David’s Bridal to make the skirt a little fuller. Here are some pictures of our dress in action πŸ™‚

My mom and I went out for first-time dress browsing in mid-Feb (just about a month or so after I got engaged), tried this dress and we both knew it was THE ONE. πŸ™‚  I didn’t expect to find/order my dress so soon, but I loved it so much.  I knew I should go with my gut.  Speaking of…I was in-between sizes and decided on the smaller, so…I’ll be working on that–yipes, lol.  I can’t wait until it comes in!  I’m so inspired by all of the brides who have this dress as well and have posted their beautiful photos.

Hi ladies!

I tried the Casablanca 1992 on this week and instantly fell in love but its a little out of my price range.  Does anybody have a used one they are willing to part with?  My budget is about $500.  
Thanks,

Elysia

@ADKgirlie: Only a few weeks until your wedding, hooray!  Be sure to come back and post pictures so that we can see your dress.

I have been so torn on which dress to pick, but I think you ladies have convinced me that this might be my dress too – you all look SO beautiful!
