The bridal shop I ordered my dress from phoned while I was away on vacation last week and said that my dress was in. It’s in a whole month early! WAHOO! I only had to wait 3 months instead of 4 to get it.
Tonight I am off with my maid of honour to pick it up. There will be no fitting tonight as its still 10 months til the wedding. Its been suggested I wait til March to start fittings and alterations… thus I can loose a little more weight, and wont be paying twice to get the alterations done.
The store I got it from was the second store I visited. I went there twice, once with a bridesmaid and we found a different dress actually that I liked. But went back with my mom, auntysocial, bridesmaid, and moh… they all voted against… out came more dresses for me to try on.
I actually got a grad dress, wahoo big price difference!, because I didnt want a train as our wedding location has lots of grass and dirt roads it will just get trashed, plus I am a major clutz and it will get ripped! I love it. The first time I tried the dress on it was actually the grad dress version in bright purple… everyone said no. I loved it though, but apparently only I’m able to picture things in different colours… like ivory. Off went the sales lady as I tried on other dresses, she found the wedding dress version in ivory and I tried that on… instant tears. Everyone agreed it was the dress.
Cant wait to have it in my hands.

That’s an amazing dress. It doesn’t look like a grad dress at all. It’s great you got it early. One less thing to worry about! And I agree, you should wait until later for alterations.

anvil chick – Wow! This is the first time I’ve seen another bride on this site who’s getting her dress from the same designer as I am. They make beautiful dresses don’t they?! Congrats!
I got the BE52. I just loved how it fit and how light it felt compared to the other dresses I had tried on. The bridal salon called last week and told me my dress was in, but I haven’t been able to go over and try it on yet. :0( I can’t wait til I can get to put it on again!

chianti…. very nice. that weight of the dress was one reason why i fell in love with it. other dresses were just way to hot and heavy for a summer wedding. i was dying in most of them after just putting it on and standing in the store lights for a couple minutes.
i have the dress! all that needs to be done to it is having the top taken in a little… which they said would cost me around $40… but i might get them to take the sides in a bit too as right now the lacing in the back does up really close together and i do not like that look so much. i think its cuter when you see a bit of the modesty piece in it and the lacing isnt super tight.
