My dress came in this week!!! It wasn’t supposed to be in for about another 2 months so it was a really pleasant surprise! I’ve been posting under a different name… now that my dress is in, I want to share it but I don’t want FH or anyone who knows me to be able to find it so I’m posting under a new name. =) My old one is a bit recognizable for those who know me lol. But anyway, here are some pictures!! The top is obviously a bit big lol. It’s Casablanca 1971 in white.

OK, First of all, HEY DRESS TWIN! I opened this and saw it and got so happy seeing my dress on another bride 🙂
I ordered mine in Ivory/Champagne, but the White looks beautiful on you!
Also, are you at Catan’s? I visited a friend in Ohio and we went there, and that’s actually where I found the dress initially!
I ended up ordering it in Indianapolis b/c it would have been silly to drive so far all the time, but I had the “secret envelope” from the special they were running, and I opened it after I ordered my dress… I would have gotten the $250 in free accessories 🙁
Still, I would have probably spend $250 in gas getting back and forth, so it evened out I guess!

@tinylittlebird: Hey! Yeah, I got it from Catan’s. I live pretty close to there. I saw the dress on their website and fell in love with it. The first time I went into the store, though, I asked them about it since I had seen it online and they couldn’t find it anywhere! Luckily they checked the computer and saw they had it so we had to search for it… it ended up being on one of the mannequins in a corner out of the way. lol. I like Catan’s, but their alterations price is ridiculous! They charge a flat $500 for alterations, even if you only need slight alterations. I’m taking it somewhere else.

@HappyCrickets: Oh my goodness! That’s crazy!
Also, I wonder when you went… When I tried it on they offered to sell me the sample!
It actually wasn’t the dress I went to try on AT ALL… I was going b/c they had a sample of the Maggie Sottero Rhianna Royale, and the ONLY sample in the whole state of Indiana had been sold (I was miffed, to say the least). So I drove all that way to try it on again, along with other stuff to compare.
I found lots of dresses that I would have been happy with there, and my consultant pulled a bunch to have me try, and this one was the last one that I tried on that she pulled.
It wasn’t at all what I had been wanting (I was looking for a slim A-line/Fit and flare style) but this dress just felt SO GOOD on, and it looks the best on me out of all the dresses I tried on, so I couldn’t pass it up!
