Awesome! i can’t wait to see it!!
Awesome! i can’t wait to see it!!
Tapping my toes ^_^
It came early!! From china to here it was TWO days!! Tracking number starts on the 6th, and got it this morning… crazy! From start to finish it was 16 days
I will post better pics later when I have actually showered and my Fiance brings home the camera. I had to use my camera phone and TRY to tie it up myself, so it isnt really on my body as well as it should be. I am also going to use a cinoline even with the little bit of tulle
The beading is obviously hand sewn.
The rouging you can tell is done really well, but the whole dress needs to be pressed.
The fabric is SOFT!! Even the tulle and lace! I was really empressed. It has a very light satin shine, but not that really annoying glare or costume satin like.
I was worried about the color ivory, but if any of you have seen DB’s light light ivory, its the same color. Exactly what I wanted.
Very long and pretty train
The “embrodery” is actually sewn on appliques with beads, really pretty but matches the color of the dress not the lace
I wish that the lace started up higher in the back, but only a little, and it seems (w/o cinoline right not) it might be slightly less aligned with the “embrodery” but I could be wrong once correctly put on and undergarmets put on.
I am curious about the lace being one accent color and embelishments matching dress not lace?? still on the fence if I need to get fixed.
This is the bag INSIDE the outside bag. The outter one was exactly the same but with massive amounts of tape and had a shipping label
THis is the third protective bag
This is right out of the bag (front) I will take a pic somewhere taller later. The under satin is really the same length, but I need to press it. I rolled it out and it was perfect.
And you thought those picture qualities were bad.. heres even worse.. lol
On me front:
Embelishments on back
Lace (pic from maker, but it looks the same, except scalloped edge, but I forgot to pic this time.)
I will take better pics tonight at a friends. She is a retired alterations person, and can correctly strap me in, and will take pics with FIs good camera. Just a sneek peak!!
Only atlerations I am thinking about is maybe shortening the sweet heart bust (not their fault, I have a very short torso not really something that makes sence in measurements) and maybe adding in some matching color from the lace to the embelishments.
I know its hard to see, so if you have suggestions that would be great!
Wow! Congratiulations, looks like a great buy!!!
I agree that it would be nice if you see the accentcolor of the lace also in the beads again, but thats realy simple to do by adding gold beads in the band under your bust for instance. Ask your retired alterationfriend 🙂
Looking forward for more pics!
It looks good so far! Waiting for better pics….
Yes please better pics! but it does look good!
It gives you a nice shape. Waiting for better pics
wow!! it looks so good!!! like PP I want some more pics 🙂
lol… on their way as soon as I can leave without my kids. I want my camera and a cleared out house, so I am heading after bedtime to a friends. Peace and quiet!!
I like the gold beads suggestion. I could also add them to the flowers in the accent “lace” on the front and back. I actually have done alot of beading before, but something like a wedding dress intimidates me.I am also going to look into golden glass pearls but that maybe too much work. You cant tell yet, but the beading they did do is very good. Its not a ton, but very accurate and clean.
THANK YOU everyone!!
I Love it! the dress looks beautiful 🙂 …I dont know if it missed it somewhere but please post up the name of the seller
Your dress is beautiful. They did a great job. I’m sure w/ alterations the dress will be exactly how you wanted it. I purchased my dress from China as well as and due to the lack of Quality Control, I needed some minor alterations.
Can’t wait to see you wearing your dress on your wedding day.
SOOO Sorry this took so long, but with the kids, and not living by anyone plans alone to take pics just was not panning out, but finally my grandma took a few while my kids were distracted by her dog. THey messed up the satin on the train but we had to shoot fast. lol Also Its not tightened all the way, so you can see my bra, but only cuz I didnt want to have to talk her through tightening. It was going bad.
