thank you 🙂 i am happy now especially because i figure if i have a concept in mind for a dress, as long as i can convey my concept accurately so that they understand what i want, it can be made for me. it wasn’t cheap, but i think it is going to be worth it. i actually love the style so much i might do something similar for my bridesmaid dresses if i like the way it looks/flows on me. then if that’s the case, i can have at least one of my bridesmaids try it on and go from there. the cost to have them made will be less than what i paid for a dress to be in my friend’s wedding, that’s for sure.

heyy ladies…another update. my dress came (after huge misunderstandings with USPS…they seriously suck down here in VA!) but it’s here and wow i can’t say enough about the quality of this dress. they did a BEAUTUIFUL job, and it fits me almost perfectly (with my half-ass measurements i sent them, i mainly guessed!) it’s just a bit big in the bust! here are some photos of the dress on me (sorry for the quality…i had to snap them real quick without SO seeing since it’s part of a surprise for him when we go away) and a couple photos of the quality. it is beautifully made, the quality is top notch, and they even put a built in bra into the dress. i’m very happy and would recommend coralsbridal.com to anyone looking to have a dress made. onto the pics!

When I saw your dress, I had too look up that website because the dress is amazing! And it looks even better on you!
I’m confused how the custom dress making works though…once you “design” something, can they sell it to others? I found your dress on their website here. Just curious because I am interested in a custom dress too :]

no, i don’t mind! i paid the same price that’s marked on the dress link HelloRaeven posted, $180.
i guess they can sell it. i am assuming most of the dresses they put on there to show as “real bridesmaid dresses” are just dresses that people requested be custom made and then they will make whatever they come up with. that is my dress in those photos.
they did a gorgeous job and i’m super happy with it. i may have my bridesmaids wear this dress, in another color. the dress fits great and i was definitely not 100% sure on the measurements i gave them. i totally trust having a professional take my girls measurements and then sending them to coralsbridal…i don’t think much would have to be done in the alteration end of things. i’m just wondering if there’s anything i want to change about the dress if i do have it as my bridesmaids’ dress. perhaps some straps since i originally didn’t want my girls in strapless. in the 4th pic i moved the chiffon to the side a bit to show the short part of the dress. i asked my mom if she liked that better and she thinks it looks classier for a wedding with the chiffon in front. the only thing now is that even though i love the dress and the plan was to wear it for the photoshoot, i wish i could wear one like this to the rehearsal dinner…but definitely not if my bridesmaids will be wearing this dress! lol i want to come up with ANOTHER design for them to make, since i am so happy with this one! thanks for the compliments, ladies!
