I just got married New Years Eve, but If you have pictures you need to contact Tony at Fabulous U. Here is my journey:

I really want to express how amazing and beautiful and INCREDABLE my fress from Fabulous U turned out. The tone of the evening was “Old Hollywood Glam” and being a plus sized woman I searched and searched for a gown that not only fit my curves but also my budget. As I stated in previous posts, I went to Miss Fish Bridal first before hearing about Tony. It came, it was nice but I had to have it altered AND I had to have an appliqué made because they used lace and cheap beading (it wasn’t cute). It was a bit more WORK and MONEY then had expected bt it was great non the less. I only had the bodice appliqué made because of the time constraint. I am still having the neck applique done so chat I can cut the train off and have it as an evening gown.

FABULOUS U!! Tony and his “Fab Group” were able to construct a high quality custom gown that was tailored to fit my body, under my original gown budget. I took 2 dresses and put them together to make what I called simple eloquence for my day and it was just…….. perfect. What I loved most was that the only thing I had to do was get the dress steamed/pressed. The fit was as if I had gone to a store and had it altered perfectly. Below are the links to my pictures, if ANYONE is planning a wedding or formal event PLEASE speak with Tony and then shop around and you will see just how budget friendly GREAT QUALITY can be. If I had to do it all over, I would have gotten both gowns form Tony and Fabulous U in the first place.

If I said it 1000 times, I wouldn’t be able to say Thank you enough to Fabulous U for making me feel beautiful on my wedding day. His patience, input, and attention to detail was exactly what I needed to achieve the look I wanted.

I second the trunk show suggestion.  Contact the designer and find out if there will be any trunk shows in your area and if they will be bringing that particular dress.  Good luck!

I’m from Vermont and fell in love with this dress and couldn’t find it anywhere! I don’t know how far you want to travel but I ended up finally finding it in Dedham, MA. I tried it on and bought it on the spot, it’s PERFECT! good luck!
