    Honestly, I love the Vanessa.  The Mimi?  I am just meh…Mimi is pretty, but the ruched bodice, raised waist, full skirt and flowers would probably be overwhelming on your petite frame.  A dress with a natural/slightly dropped waist, very fitted bodice and full skirt would be much more flattering.  I don’t know what your budget is, but there is a dress out there for everyone–you just have to look for it.

    Take your Vanessa to a seamstress (or two).  Let them pin it in place correctly, get a quote and see what you think then.  Right now you are pinching and pulling on it while you are wearing it–not the most accurate representation of what it would look like.  Also, I think you need a crinoline or some additional layers of tulle in the skirt.  It looks a little deflated.  Bring your wedding shoes, make sure your hair/make-up is done and try on some veils/headpiece–put the whole look together.

    If this still isn’t the dress for you, try to sell it.  Some girls have gotten very lucky and sold their dresses within a week or two.  However, be prepared to lose some money.  Even though it is brand new and never altered, you won’t get full price for it.

    Needless to say, you are getting slightly tight on time–I would get it to a seamstress right away so you can decide.  Also, you may be able to find a replacement dress on the preowned sites that can be had relatively quickly.

    PS–I am a 3 dress bride, so I certainly understand where you are coming from.

    @bananejaune: did you ever end up selling the dress? 

    Curious, as I am also in love with this dress but somewhat unwilling to make the jump.   Did you see it at “sonia’s”?

    OMG Same thing with me! I cried this AM 🙁 What di you end up doing? I got a 6 and its too big, so hard to tell, but afraid if I get it altered I won’t be able to sell it.  I think the dress is made for someone with curves and I have no boobs and no hips! It just doest hit me in the right spots, Im 5’10” and afraid to much going on with alterations and it will be too short.
    Im dying 🙁 I think I got caught up in the beauty of the dress and ignored my body type – this dress will look great on people with curves like the model in the WTOO site.

    So what did you do???
