No, I didn’t buy three dresses, but it took three shipments to get it right. I ordered from BHLDN and the first time my dress came, the lace was snagged in multiple places! I was bummed, but luckily I still have plenty of time, since they ship quick and my wedding isn’t until October. It was around the holidays, so it took a while to sort the exchange, but I saw I was getting my dress on Tuesday so I checked with my Maid/Matron of Honor (who’s visiting this weekend) if she wanted me to try to get a fitting appointment while she’s in town so she can see it in person. So I’m able to get an appointment for Saturday. Yay, right?
Well, then my dress gets here on Tuesday and I’m relieved to see there aren’t any snags… until I realize there’s all these pink ink dots all over it! Judging by the location of the spots, they seem to be marks for sewing that somehow weren’t removed? So I’m all panicked because of my friend’s visit, but luckily customer service was understanding and did an overnight shipment. So now an undamaged dress is finally here!
This is my first time ever trying to use the self-timer on my iPhone (I’m a millennial, I swear!), so sorry I didn’t manage to get the bottom of the dress. Obviously I need to get some shapewear (any recommendations?) because you can see everything and there’s some altering to be done where it gaps in the back and the weird pointy Madonna effect in the bust. But that part’s probably because I don’t fill it out, lol 32A me. Oh, and the tags and hanger ribbons are still sticking out.
ETA: Accidentally added the front pic twice, d’oh!

You look beautiful! I’ve been looking at that dress for a while now, but on the only review on BHLDN it says that the skirt shows everything in the tummy area. Is that correct? (My family and friends live overseas so I’m waiting for my sister to come visit and go on appointments) Thanks!
EDIT: just read your post again and saw that you mentioned the you can see everything issue lol

meanttobee2018 : munchkin1917 : cameobride : mrsaime : becks90 : Thank you, bees!!
belmarie : Ha, yeah and I’m skinny-fat so you can see my lower tummy and my hipbones which is a weird mix. Nothing shapewear can’t fix though! But pantylines are also an issue so I’m thinking a shorts style will work, because I’m not looking to wear a thong all day. Tbh as long as the booty looks good, I’ll be happy. 😉
yogabride2018 : Thank you! That’s definitely my favorite part too. I originally thought the front was too plain, but I think a veil and jewelry will help.
des- : Omg that’s so nice, thank you!
