By the way are you bringing a steamer or what were you think
I had a hand steamer for my MOH's wedding and it worked well on her chiffon dress (not sure how good it would be for taffeta or satin). Luckily the luxury package includes dress steaming/pressing, so I don't have to worry about burning my dress lol.

PrettyPig thanks was my concern with the 2nd one. I was afraid it would look frumpy on me. I'm 5' 4' and curvy, and I was thinking that dress would be better for a tall skinny frame. If the store can't get a sample I'm going to take it as "it wasn't meant to be."
The Brianna looked awesome, so if any of you curvy girls are looking for a dress definitly try this one on!
BTW the bridal store I went to was awesone, it was such a pleasant experience. If any of you Chicago area brides are still looking I highly recommend.
I hear you, girl. I am also curvy and 5'3 and once I saw the wonders the corset could do i was hooked. (and i'm in a heavy satin dress but i don't care! lol) I figure the sun will be down 1.5 -2 hrs after my ceremony and then it will be relatively cool outside next month. I have to practically wear stilts though because FI is 6'6 and a half!
