It is a beautiful dress and I see nothing wrong with skipping the bridal salon.  However, the site says the dress is not available, do you know if it will be?

That dress is very lovely, and the lace work is wonderful! I think it looks plenty bridal, and accesorized correctly could look even more so. You don’t HAVE to go through a professional salon, but it’s nice to be able to see a gown on you before you put the money down to purchase it. There’s always that slim “What if I hate it?” factor.

holy smokes i think it’s beautiful!

You could also look at the designers Ivy and Aster, J. Crew, Amy Michaelson, and BCBG (website) for similar styles to this one.

@mvanderhoff:  Oh, that’s good.  I like the idea of Norstoms as they have a great return policy.  I think you should go for it.  The back is to DIE FOR!

That dress is beautiful! I love the back of it. I don’t see anything wrong with not buying a dress from a bridal salon. A lot of women DON’T get their dress from a bridal store and instead get it from Nordstrom, Macy’s, JCrew, etc. or from somewhere online. As long as you find a good, reputable seamstress if you need alterations, I think you’ll be fine.

i think its beautiful and honestly i think threre will be no problems not going through a boutique. nordstroms has a great return policy.  it looks very wedding-y to me and i would not bat an eyelasy to see it in a bridal magazine. i LOVE the back and the collar part. love it! if it came in my size i thing i would strongly consider getting it!
