Just want to see if anyone out there is my dress twin??
@luckygirl317: I ended up with another one that I absolutely fell in love with! DB just discontinued the above dress!! Crazy! It wasnt out for very long. I just felt like the dress was wearing me. Plus I have always loved the slim look. But,I am sure you look beautiful in it:)
I’m your dress twin. I just got the dress this past Sunday. When I first went into DB I was looking for a backup dress in case the dress I was planning on buying (gold mermaid dress) didnt work out. After trying several dresses in the fit and flare and mermaid shape and seeing that im just two tiny for those dresses, i asked about a tulle dress, that they didnt have. My consultant looked at me and said hold on and brought back this dress. I tried it on and it was NOTHING like I expected and beautiful. I got tears and everything lol… What color shoes have you decided on?
As fate would have it, I actually ordered another one…very slim and all lace BUT to my surprise I went to pick it up last night and opened my bag to try it on and IT WAS THIS DRESS!! I was all this isn’t mine and they said I had 2 dresses back there.I had cancelled this one because I was too afraid it was not me. They asked if i wanted to try this on and i said yes!
It was stunning in the white! I think they would not have discontinued it if women could see it in the white and black, not ivory and black like what I did. White makes a HUGE difference!!! Needless to say, I took this one home! The all lace one style VW9340 just didnt do what this dress did,made me feel like a barbie bride lol! I feel sooo good in it!
Shoes… I am thinking a simple peep toe. Maybe the one’s in black with the bow on them from DB, Maribelle,Lolita or something like that. They come in like every color. Def. black shoe though. I can wear again. Peep toes fit the almost vintage style of the dress. Nothing crazy bc the dress is stunning alone!
Aww it looks so pretty, I have my fitting next Saturday and I can’t wait. I’m wearing black sparkly peep toe pumps with about a 3 inch heels. I’m super excited about wearing them.. That’s crazy it seems that fate wants you to have the dress :). Mine is Ivory and Black but the Ivory to me is really close to white. But I love the dress anyway.. I’m thinking of adding a black sash around the middle, I feel like something is missing there, but then with all of the black lace that might be too much. We will see. It seems like we are the only one with enough pizzazz to wear this dress :).
OHHH I wanna see your shoes:) I think a sash might be too much for me that is. But you do what you want! We do have pizzazz!!! There is such a HUGE difference with the ivory and white. I kinda wanted to get all white just incase I changed my colors but the lace wasn’t gonna pop at all I thought. The black makes the dress! I am thinking on simple peep toes like the Maribelle style from them, Black def. or these
Those are adoreable. I had to go for a shorter heel because me and the FH are close to the same height. (I didn’t want to be taller than him, so with the heels we are the same height) These are my shoes – http://www.dsw.com/shoe/m+by+marinelli+vern+pump?prodId=224839&productRef=SEARCH (don’t know how to post pics on here so I figured I’d put the link). The heels give me just enough height that I want have to hem the dress. After looking at it again today I 86’d the sash. I think it would make it look less bridal and more prom.. Def not the look I’m going for. Yeah I tried on a few white dress (different shape) and it just washed me out, Ivory gives my skin tone the glow it needs. Did you happen to get it bussled and stuff yet. I’m trying to figure out HOW in the WORLD does the dress looked bussled and how many bussle’s do I need? The black def. makes the dress. Plus it doesn’t hurt that my fiance’s favorite color is black :).
BTW’s have you thought or figure out your flower girls dresses? I finally made the decision and picked black dresses that have ivory underneath and cut out flowers. It’s almost like the opposite of our dress. The rest of the bridal party is wearing black as well. I’m thinking of getting Pink Roses for myself to carry and then have them carry yellow roses. I’m kinda of an out of the box bride. I want as many different ideas for my wedding as possible. I.E. my ring bearer will more than likely be carrying a transformer down the aisle, with the fake rings attached to it and the cake topper really takes the cake. http://www.daisy-days.com/super-spy-cake-topper.html (love it, we go to the gun range and stuff so it fits lol)
So i was trying it on today and you will never guess what I found??? BIG HUGE TEARS!!! In the tulle under and along the black lace on the train!!! Ugghhh I started crying and my Fiance was like what is wrong after I yelled WTF in our bedroom lol! I couldn’t show him of course but was all freaking out. I rushed down to DB after I called them. They were so nice to me.
At first they didn’t have but the Ivory/black in stock anymore so I was like ok,maybe I will like my old one WG3026 in all white since I knew what it looked like before…tried on 2,including a lace one in white that I almost went with VW9340. I was like nahhh no way. I love mine too much and was crushed. So I come out of the dressing room all depressed and was like almost in tears,call my 2 gf’s. Then they come back and say they located ONE,the only one left in size 4 in b/w!!! They are gonna handle alterations for me since I am a 2 and 4 would look huge on me! LOL. Ahhh what a day!!
Anyways, I am thinking pinks too. I have one Maid/Matron of Honor and FH has Bridesmaid or Best Man and that is it. Besides our daughter being Flower Girl… I am thinking a pink dress for her and a black one for my Maid/Matron of Honor with a sash or pink shoes. We were gonna do red but I want more springy colors:) B/W is so neutral anything goes… I am thinking just mixed flowers for the reception though. All sorts of garden flowers:)
No bustling yet. i am sure it will take maybe 2 def. and really show the train detail. It is a light dress but ALOT of it! Shoes,the above ones might be too tall. Can’t go higher than 4.5 inches.. The ones at DB are perfect i think and comfy. Black peep toe with a side bow.
Are you a server/bartender bc you used 86’d lol. I am so I thought it was funny to see that!
By The Way our dress is totally discontinued,they called the direct warehouse to get mine and that was it! I feel special!
OMG that is def a day. I really would’ve had a fit. I still would I’m hoping that the dress is still okay it’s at my mom’s house. Yeah Pink is more springy than the red that would be more of a valentine or Christmas wedding. Yeah I had to do the 3in heel but they are so comfy I wont have to worry about taking them off that night until it’s time to leave. Wow they are covering the alterations that is wonderful. My dress was the sample dress and only one other person tried it on. Mine is a size 4 as well and it’s way too big I’m sure a 2 would’ve fit me perfectly but they only had the 4 in the store and it was the only one. Yeah my mom and I were trying to figure out how they would bustle it esp with it being tulle and lace, it’s gotta to be hard but I’m sure they know exactly what they are doing (at least I hope 😉 ) (it seems pretty expensive too.. so not looking foward to paying the money for the alterations, hopefully it wont be too much)I’m glad everything worked out with the ordeal. It must truly be meant to be your dress esp if they were able to get it from the warehouse. I like the pink dress idea, that will give the whole thing pops of color. Yes it is A LOT of dress, it surprised me at how light it truly was once I put it on. I was expecting to be weighed down and I’m tiny lol.. My cousin had a beautiful champange pick up DB’s dress I loved it but OMG was it heavy. She was 7 months preggers and you couldn’t tell but by the end of the night she had taken off the under skirt and the dress was just dragging. I ended up carrying it around for the majority of the night. I’m so happy our dress is NOT that heavy 🙂 I think that might have been the breaking point. Plus I don’t think my Fiance would want to hear my fussing and being a brat all night because it was too heavy. It also helped me eliminate the need to switch dresses for the reception. The ceremony and reception are at the same place so it would be hard to switch dress and it’s in November so it will be a bit chilly lol! I’m trying to think about those options now. I have 1 MatronOH, 1Maid/Matron of Honor & 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man. I’m giving them all the option to wear whatever dress they pick out and cause in the end they have to wear the dress not me. 🙂
It crazy that they discountinued it. I went online to leave a review for the dress and 2 days later it was gone off of the website. SMH. I was like seriously. My friend told me to look out for the clearance sale most of the time the end up showing back up in the sale section, then you can contact DB and let them know you brought the dress recently and they will refund you the difference (my fingers are so crossed)
No not a server/bartender I’m a paralegal at a bankruptcy law firm. I hear the “86’d” term all the time. lol!
Are you gonna get it to a size 2?? I am small but hippy bc of 3 kids! LOL But it fits like a glove:) I was totally thinking it was gonna be so heavy and swallow me. We were wrong! I feel like a barbie haha,like I am floating. It is so nice to have a dress twin and share fears and concerns. My Fiance did not like it on the site… boooo! He is not up for color, oh well! My Fiance would not like me fussing either and our’s is luckily at the same place too. I was stationed in Bethesda,MD for 4.5 years and know it does get chilly there. We met in the Navy there:)
I hope it isn’t alot to bustle. I don’t wanna be broke! I actually after switching back to this Sat.night got store credit bc it is now $499!!! Crazy how detailed it is, for the price too! Cannot beat it!
Do you have it laying flat? They said that is the best way to store it so it does not stretch,away from any windows/direct sunlight and in that stupid bag we had to pay for. Ugghhhh as if we didn’t spend enough lol! I am storing mine in my closet but flat when it gets here. Also, will air it out when I try it on at least once a week:)
