Love 8634 on you! And by your description, it doesn’t sound like the sample is a contender. Keep looking, sending good dress vibes your way 🙂

That first one is just faublous on you.  It’ll happen soon enough, and we’re here to help when you need it!

@KatyElle: I agree.

As soon as I saw you I thought, “she looks amazing in that dress”!

I’m sorry you were feeling down about dresses today. I hope your spirits have lifted.

Not sure what size you’d be, but recycled bride has 8634 in size 4, used and altered.. But if you’re in LOVE, it might be worth checking!

Also, not sure where you are located, but if you were to try calling stores in LA, San Francisco, NYC you might be able to find a smaller sample size of 8634. When I tried on dresses back home in MN, standard sample was a 12 usually… Here, it was an 8, sometimes even smaller! (I think due to large asian population, but I could be wrong.)

I love #3. I see what you mean about the weird bunching. But it looks like it’s an alteration away from awesomeness.

I tried on your first dress as well, and boy is it sparkly. I loved the fun contrast between the flowery ruffled like bottom and the simply beaded top (as in, there’s no real design there save a few hidden flowers, but even they’re hard to see amongst all the sparkle)… I kept it on a good long while but then realized that that dress was a little overwhelming because i’m really small. but i think it looks really fantastic on you! Keep searching, you’ll find the dress!

$250?!?  Amazing for that kind of detail! You look beautiful in it!

I’m positive I’ve seen that bunching happen on other dresses and it’s about the dress not being fitted just yet.  I bet the weight of all that skirt is pullling the outer layer down while underneath part is trying to stay stiff.

How much can it cost to add the sweatheart, I wonder.

I’m curious about dress #2. Are you really getting married August 22? 10 weeks from today is June 10 which still leaves you 2 1/2 months to get alterations done.
