Well you can always get it altered if it’s too big – better to order big, then small. 🙂

It’s beautiful by the way!!!

Hey, you did the exact same crazy thing that I did…only I didn’t have a backup plan since I knew this dress was the one. I was only looking on ebay to get an idea of what I liked, and nothing was jumping out at me…then BAM! The measurements were right and it was new with tags. Sweet.

It was the first and last wedding dress I tried on.

AngiePangie – I didnt buy my dress online but I did buy a Richard Glasgow dress and the fabric is wonderful.  The dress is so well made it is incredible!  I hope that you love it as much as I love mine.  All of the women that work in the dress shop went on and on about what beautiful dresses he made and how it is such a shame that he retired.  Let us all know if it works out!  When do you expect it to arrive?

I didn’t buy it online, but my dress is the first I tried on (at a sample sale 2 weeks after I got engaged).  I bought it 14 months before my wedding.  Everyone said I would end up changing my mind, but nope.  I have 6 months to go, just tried it on last night, and it still gets my heart aflutter.  Good for you!  I think the best decisions are the ones you don’t obsess about.  Trust your instincts!

Why not go to a store that carries the dress or something similar by the same designer and try it on.  Then you will know if you need to find a seamstress who can make some changes, including regular alterations, or if you need to look for something else just in case.

I bought my dress online without trying on any dresses, and it is still the dress I love (and am using for my wedding) six months later.  Good luck!
