iza_j:  Thank you!  I ordered Jan. 15.  Your photos will probably arrive in the next few days.  I uploaded mine the day they came, so it does take awhile.

My dress arrived!! Unfortunately it is so huge and my mirror is so tiny I can’t get a decent photo until I see my bridesmaids in a few weeks -__-

PROS:

Like many bees have said before, the quality is great. I got designer grade organza in off-white, and it looks wonderful. The flowers look great even after being stuffed in that tiny bag for so long! My fiance came home just as I was trying on the dress so I had to take a hasty, really horrible cell phone photo.

CONS:

Similarly there are SO MANY LAYERS! I thought it would be lining, satin, organza, organza. Instead, it was lining, doubled-over satin, doubled-over satin, organza, and organza. This dress weighs 20 pounds! I’m going to see if the seamstress can take a layer of the satin out.

The top is quite bulky and the zipper won’t go up all the way even though I can “pinch” the dress shut. It’s very hard to zip up even when the dress is not on me, so I’m not too worried about having to lose weight, I’ll just need some help 🙂

The bulk on the top itself is worrying since it makes me look much larger than I actually am. I wonder if this is due to the inner corset… the inner corset also didn’t come with a lace. The underskirt is only 1-hoop so it doesn’t do much for volume. Also, there’s  layer of really scratchy material on top of the underskirt. The dress is also around 4 inches too long even when I’m wearing 5 inch heels, so that’s definitely something that I need to get tailored.

In summary:

– quality is great

– top is too bulky, don’t know if it’s fixable

– way too long–will need to get tailored

– underskirt is pretty crappy, I would recommend future bees to buy underskirts elsewhere
