This is my Dress!!! I did not get the little coat because it was close to the same amount as the dress :-0 which was disappointing and even made my mother mad for awhile but I absolutely love the dress! 

I’m 5’5 and ordered a size 4. After ordering my dress we realized that the lace did not cover enough of the dress at the top and the cumber-bun wrap needed to be moved down an inch so it would fall on my waist the right way.  They had to order more of the lace/flower detail to be to fill in that space. The manager even told me they have had other girls with this same problem. And that she wishes they would start telling brides this before they order it!

I think I had this problem because the sie 8 i tried on had more material with it being a bigger dress so it looked like it fit right but when i ordered my smaller size the proportions were off.  So if you do decide on this dress in a smaller size than the one you are trying on make sure to tell them you want an extra inch of the lace and the cumber bun moved down one inch.

I’m going to my next fitting in a week. So we will see how it looks with the alterations they did. It sounds like a lot of negative but as long as you are aware and fix it from the get go you should be fine. I can’t wait to put it on again!

i tried on this dress and it is absolutely GORGEOUS.  like, amazingly beautiful.  i seriously considered it but since i’m only 5’0 i felt a little overwhelmed by the skirt portion. (and i also tried it in an 8 so the fit was hard to judge)  but, i drool every time i see pics of other brides in it!!  you girls are both going to be gorgeous in this dress.

@pec1216 – I LOVE the dress you posted! Just gorgeous. Priscilla of Boston is definitely my favorite designer BUT I’m wearing a David’s Bridal. However, my dress looks really similar to POB’s “Maeve” in the Vineyard Collection!

Okay so I had my last fitting- shouldn’t change in size before sept 😉 And these are the pics of my dress with extra flower lace detail added. It’s hard to notice a change unless you look at the pics next to each other. I also attached a pic of my shoes!!
