I was unhappy with my dress, but after alterations were all done I loved it, they made all the difference. Alterations can be pretty pricey, but it’s worth it to have a dress that fits well & that you love! Good luck : )

@Cupcakegurl:  If you love the strap, I would get it refitted to you first and then decide about the strap.

I really like the concept of the dress, I mean all of the little bows or flowers. It’s very ethereal (spell?). I don’t approve of strapless wedding dresses, becuase it seems like an odd trend as of late in weddings, but on you I really think either will look very pretty. 🙂

I think it’s beautiful and very flattering for your figure! The flowers remind me of the delicate leaves of ginko trees. I like the strap, too…as others have said, it creates a nice graceful line and drape.

It’s really hard to judge from a picture how big it is on you. But I wanted to point out that you have what looks like about 2 inches (give or take a little) to cinch up that corset back and have it still look good. You might consider having someone lace you into it and pull it nicely snug to see if that takes up enough of the extra width. That would pull up a bit of the length, too. Perhaps it still wouldn’t be enough…but I would surely try that before starting down the road of paying for alterations.

@Cupcakegurl:  I like it better one shoulder. I also think it would look better without the dangly things on the bottom. They just throw me off (I dont like them on the original picture either, so its not just your dress.)

My first thought was ‘love’. I like the petals and how they lead the eye. I really think the dress suits you. I love the flower detail and LOVE that you got rid of the one shoulder. This is als really something I haven’t seen a bazillion times before, though I confess I hardly hound the dress stores and sites.

@Cupcakegurl: im at that point with my dress too. LOVE it on the hanger but its just so big on that its hard to see what its going to look like once altered to fit. I  want make mine more form fitting, see if they can alter it to have a longer bodice. Its a aline princess so it shouldnt be that hard.. i hope. I dont want to spend too much more money on it

I think it’s SUPER pretty, and I think getting it fitted is VITAL to ALL wedding dresses (or at least 99% of them.) Until it’s fitted to your body, it’s so hard for it to look its best, you know? Once it’s been altered and it fits you properly, it’s going to be amazing.

I think it’s a very pretty dress that will look stunning once it’s altered to your body. I love the one shoulder and agree it gives you a great eye line! Exciting 🙂

I think they did a WONDERFUL job. I think other responses are more about the design, which is totally a taste thing, but the construction is lovely and the workmanship looks very good! It fits you beautifully other than the neckline needing to come down some. Overall, nothing to complain about for it being a “knock off”.

I think it turned out nicely. The flower decorations look better than many of the replica dress flowers I’ve seen.
