Don’t have any pictures of me in the dress, and haven’t ordered it yet. Thinking about it until after Thanksgiving.

Haven’t seen it on here at all. It’s Vera Wang from her Fall 2009 Collection. Can’t find any stock photos… only these photos from OnceWed.com (NOT me in the dress).

Would be $3,500 pre alterations… matching veil would be $1,000 (INSANE!), shoes were ~$700, but will get 10% off all of it and no sales tax because we will ship to ME where they don’t have a store.

Dress sits up higher in front and I’d do a darker ivory sash (rather than purple) but you get the idea.

Mine is Casablanca 1971, in white.  It was $1070 + tax & alterations.  I don’t know how much alterations are going to be… the store I ordered the dress from charges a $500 flat fee for alterations so I’m definitely going to take it somewhere else for the alterations.  Here are the pictures from Casablanca’s website:

Mine is a Mori Lee #6106 and I got it brand new at a thrift store for a steal, $180. Normally anywhere from $350-$400 so it was inexpensive to begin with. I love the dress!!
(Oh and my alterations should be under $150)

@NorCalBride2Be: I have a Jasmine Dress as well. I just bought a sample from the store, so they gave me a %15 discount. However, I ran into another girl on the hive who had the exact same dress as I do, and she bought hers new from a bridal boutique for 200 less than I did. Mine was $999 before the discount.

I had posted on here a while back about my Maggie. Well, things changed when I went to Alfred Angelos. They were having a sample sale and I got my dress for $98!!! It is an AA 1846. It is a bit small so I will have to get it altered. Hopefully that doesn’t cost too much.

I purchased the Allure 2302 during a trunk sale (10% off) but I ended up getting it ordered to my length because of the lace so that was an extra $100 plus $50 tax = $880
