About Tiny Tuna

  1. Thanks! I decided to go with real touch and ordered a bouquet.
  2. http://tinytuna.tumblr.com/post/3567197791 Hi ladies! I'm wondering if anyone can suggest a veil style. I was thinking elbow length, should it be embellished or should I avoid it due to the bodice detail. The veil will be ivory, my hair will be down in curls, and it's long down to my back. The veil should be longer than my hair, right? It's all very confusing! Any suggestions would be helpful Thanks in advance. Hope the pictures worked out, if not click the link and you'll see them.
  3. I don't think it's a bad sign. I noticed that several of the same companies run under different sites. My SO said that it's probably in case they get shut down somewhere they can still run from another site. Even chinese local stores here tend to do the same thing, or are constantly shutting down/re opening under different names or in registered under different family members. It's a strange practice but we've got used to it.
  4. rosieposie, it's pretty!! The stuffing in the bag probably caused the wrinkling. Hang it up and have it professionally iron/steamed and it will look fab on your big day!!!
  5. Blakkinu, have you tried smartbrideboutique.com it's a consignment type of website, it's where I found my dress. Here are a few shots of my dress, a maggie sottero tabrett lynette that I negotiated for $575 Maybe you can find a steal? If the links don't work the site will: http://tinytuna.tumblr.com/post/3567197791

  7. http://shop.ebay.ca/coralsbridal/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=25 Try getting in contact with her on ebay and see if she replies.
  8. blakkinu, we're going to try to help you as much as we can!!! I don't understand why Coral is not available, I sent emails with pictures and they came back so my SO said it might be their national firewall? If you sent a text email and it went through I don't know why she didn't respond, she has things on ebay everywhere. I'm not sure but if she has some ready made things for sale in your size and taste maybe you can bid on it?
  9. It's just a shame she never replied to my emails when I sent them, but judging by her work she and her team do it very professionally and using good fabrics and lace. Tailoring is not an easy job, it requires a lot of work and professionalism for a garment to look really good. It's the details in the sewing and ironing after every step is very important so seams look flat and nice. My mother used to tell me that so many people don't realize that and it's why garments look sloppy, even many professionals can be sloppy. It is so expensive in our countries because it's labour intensive even if you buy the fabric yourself on sale, it would be nice if there was a balance or being able to select your own fabrics. I faced this issue when I contacted all the other companies asking about silks, and they refused to tell me if they can get any because they kept quoting the low prices and saying it would cost so much more, but it was my request, and if they're tailoring for me I should be able to choose the fabric I want, I know the prices here in Canada and was willing to buy them at that rate but was pretty sure that in China they would be at least the same or a bit cheaper anyway. The message just never got across, and others refused to do it. I just want to say to all the others out there to make sure they select a pattern and understanding the fabrics that they will use in China to make the dress. I would look closely at examples that they've done and see what fabrics are available and what would look the best according to their supplies and your taste. Over complicated garments are not always guaranteed to work out.
  10. I'm 24 People mistaken me for a teenger though. As for hassling, I can relate, I was engaged at 17 a few times.
  11. This year on our bdays at the end of the year I'll be 25 and he'll be 30. People mistaken me for a 17 year old.
