Got my gown at David’s Bridal, no pics of me in it yet, but I LOVE this dress (as we all should) and I look AMAZING in it (as we all should feel we do)

Everyone looks beautiful!

I finally said “yes” to the Mori Lee Blu 4865. I am a plain and simple gal and I believe this dress fits my personality perfectly. I won’t be wearing the color sash shown, but it comes with a black and ivory sash with the flower pin. I may wear the ivory one or find something else. There is lace under the organza overlay which is hard to see in the photo’s. I will be wearing some type of veil, but not the one in the photo’s. I can’t wait to see what it looks like after some minor alterations and a good steaming!

here’s me in mine… needs alterations but nearly there, she didn’t lace it up properly first time around hence why it looks weird at the back, but it needed lifting then it was fine! It’s a Mark Lesley – 2043 – a British designer! … not long for me til the big day!! so exciting you all look fab in your dresses!!

I ordered mine online a few days ago and it got here yesterday.  It has to be taken in a bit on top, because I don’t have a big chest.  I’m 5’8 and a size 22.

I loved my gown! It is Maggie Sottero Miri (the chiffon shrug is from David’s Bridal). It felt amazing on, and hugged my curves in all the right places! It was quite a gamble for me since I was unable to try it on before I ordered it as no one carried a plus size sample. I am so lucky it worked out 🙂

sorry for double upload,,got stuck..ok,,i had problem with mine ,since ordered it by just looking at the photo..turned out different from pic,,u can see for your self..afer complaint they are paying my alteration,,u can see transformation,,from odd saggy skirt,,not showing accordion pleats..also the top of corset decoration was in an odd place and not in same shape…the second pic with me in the dress was on the first alteration trial,,,with pin on,,,skirt was lifted and folded but after that i asked to lift more,so i got the last pic (hanging dress) as a result,,didn’t try it on that say since i went for the bolero fitting only,,so cannot wait to try now the last version of it,,looks more round and full in bottom and can see the accordion pleats now very well from and higher on side
