- Wedding: June 2011
New to the boards, but I had done a few months of reading on here, and thought I’d post about my dress!
My hubby and I ran away to Vegas to get married, since he’s a shy guy and we figured it would be a really great way for us to enjoy our union.
So I wasn’t going to spend a fortune on a dress, I had gone and tried on tons of dresses, every style looked great, but I never had my heart set on one particular dress, but I knew what looked good. So after a long time researching, I ordered my dress from Landybridal.com . I ordered in March, for my wedding in June, I knew it took 30 days for them to make the dress, then some considerable time shipping, but when the end of may was drawing closer, I grew a little worried and sent some emails to them stating that my wedding was very soon. I recieved my dress a week before the wedding!
I ordered a size 10, since that’s what I fit with no alterations, the dress fit beautifully!
I am not picky at all, everyone loved my dress, I got so many compliments in Vegas, and women did not believe me when I told them what I paid. It was $350. Which is on the higher end of the China dress pricing, but it was the shipping that they get you with!
Anyways, it’s an Anjolique knock off, the original dress pictured was made of satin, and I recieved taffeta which was probably better given the temperatures there, so if you’re ordering, be specific with what fabric you want, because they will make it out of anything, I didn’t specify so I got taffeta.
I had never tried the original on, so I can’t complain about how it’s “not exactly like it” because I wasn’t expecting an EXACT replica. Because my day wasn’t about my dress, it was about marrying the man I love!
