My casablanca dress was labeled couture for some odd reason, but I love it!! Funny thing is they didnt have my size either, I am a size 0 in real life and they only had 12’s and 14’s in the store cause they did want plus size women to feel uncomfortable, which is pretty neat, I paid 1200 for mine (including alteration, which I will need a lot of, I’am 5 foot) but I love it!! couldnt ask for a better dress!!

I’m a Casablanca bride also and I love my dress! I order 1930 but had the neckline altered from a halter into a sweetheart and also had the back changed into a corset. It was a little expensive after the chages but I think it will be totally worth it.

I just called to check on my dress. They said 4 to 5 months and it’s exactly 4.5 months today. Apparently it won’t be in until February 26 now. My wedding isn’t until June 5, so that isn’t an issue but the wait is driving me crazy.

I wore 1906. It was 1000 and was ordered a custom length.  I ordered it in early April and it came in July. It was about 4 months.  I wore a 10. I’m a street 8/10. My salon had Casablancas in several sizes I remember trying on one that was a 16.

Here’s mine!!!  I got it two weeks ago, and it’s suppose dto come in in May.  The 1900.  The 1971 (last pic) was also a top contender.  Loved them both…but in the end, the 1900 was classic, romantic, and soooo pretty!

Here’s mine!  I bought it off the rack as a sample (well, my mom bought it) and I’m having the neckline modified to a slight sweetheart.  The train is my favorite part!  It’s Casablanca 1795 and I think it cost about $700…

This is mine. At the store it was $1,200 but I found an online store that sold it for only $746. The store I found my dress in said it would take 6 months to come in but the place I bought from only takes 3 months. Also, this site is called Plussizebridal.com. But they carry anything from a 2 – 32. They just special in plus sizes. And with sizes 14 and up, you can return the dress if it doesnt fit and then order another size which is usually unheard of. Hope this helps, good luck!

I bought the 1930 in ivory.  I changed the halter into straps and with that change, I paid about $1000.  I orderd my dress at the end of November, I think and I was told it will be here around April.  The first store that I tried on a sample had this dress in a 14, but the store I ordered from has a size 10 sample.

Hi!  I ordered the Casablanca 1889 in diamond white with no changes.

 http://www.casablancabridal.com/collections/view/2/22

I am about a 6 street size on the top and an 8 on the bottom and I tried on a size 8 (their sample size; I was really surprised b/c all the other samples I tried on were 12) and it fit perfectly!!!  I love it so much.  It was ordered on January 4th-ish and is supposed to be mailed to the store on March 6th!  It was $785 and I paid an extra $85 for rush delivery.  They had told me normally delivery is 16-18 weeks, but rush was for 6-8 weeks.  The length was not too terribly extra long; I’m 5’4 and had on about 3 inch shoes.

This picture is awful and I look terrible, but it is what it is!

I bought a 1838.  http://www.casablancabridal.com/collections/view/5/95

It may be from an old collection but I simply love it.  Where I shopped only carried plus sizes.  So everything fit just fine, even had to have them clipped in the back sometimes.  It was a wonderful experience.  Laughing

Oh and the lady told me it would come in for first fitting in 4 months.  So I’ve been looking forward to May ever since.  It cost me $750 with a custom fitting.
