Let me try again, the straps weren’t actually attached they were just laying there so they will be set a little further out and they will snap in and hook around the neck, thanks goodness for the gatsby!

@Emily, The store didn’t have my dress in Ivory either, so I only got to try it on in the champagne/gold, and hoped that I liked it!! I was really nervous for those three months, looking at it every day on the MS website hoping it would look good on me in those colors!! The store told me they ended up ordering it in ivory/pewter after they saw my dress come in because they thought it was so pretty.

Don’t worry you’ll love it! My pictures make it look much whiter than it actually is, it looks just like the picture!

EMILYM2010- I am so excited!  I am not sure what I am going to do at work or at night when i am not going to have to plan this wedding!!!  I guess it will be baby making time!! HA!!

What color did you get your dress in?  Your dress has so much beautiful detail on it.  I think our two dresses are timeless.  If I ever have a daughter (which i really want boys) but….I would love it if she wore my dress.  I feel with the way ours look they could be worn 30 years from now.

Oh wow! You ladies look gorgeous in those dresses!

 

My dress is the Gatsby too! Mine is in champagne/light gold with pewter accents and it’s arriving on Monday so I’m totally nuts right now! Have had second thoughts because it’s been so long since I tried it on and I kept asking myself if I really looked as nice as I thought I did or if I remembered wrong. It’s hard to find pictures of real brides wearing the dress, so I’m so glad Projectwedding13 has hers up here!

 

Projectwedding13: If you don’t mind me asking, what size is your Gatsby? I’m 5’10 & I ordered a size 10 despite never having tried it because the sample was a size 8 and it was too snug!

Princess Panda: Sorry I never have time to get online anymore! It’s a size 8, I thought about getting a 6, which is what they told me to get, but I didn’t want it to be too snug as well. So I bought a size a little bit bigger, and once you tighten the corset correctly it fits perfect, I barely have to do alterations, just the straps shortened and a hem! Hope your dress fits you well! GL!

@Emily,

You might want to do a bustle if you’re going to keep the train long, since it’s sheer material it will tear very easy if anyone steps on it or if it catches on anything. I’m planning on cutting off all of the train of the underneath dress and have the train be completely sheer, that way the bustle isn’t so heavy.
