    Ok, Here's mine. Sorry the only decent pic I have of me in the dress is in my mom's closet and I'm looking away, oh well!

        Thanks starrysim.

        I really liked all of your options as well. In the end, did you decide on the Desdemona?

          Nope, I went with the Dulconee, which is also by WToo.  No one seemed to like Desdemona as much as I did, so I figured something was wrong with me :)  I do love the Dulconee just as much, I'm so excited!

                    So not fair! I tried on so many dresses and would have loved to have pictures of me in them. It is such a silly policy so many stores have but oh well... I have my dress now!!! Can't wait till I'm closer to the wedding to have it fitted and altered to perfection :)

I actually HATE that place, they totally messed up my bridesmaid dress order for my friend's wedding, and overall they have terrible service).  I also really liked a Jai Bridal dress at Mona Richie, but I didn't buy it because they didn't let me take pics, and I had pics of two other dresses that I really loved.  So once it came time to choose between the 3, how could I choose the one that I couldn't see at home?  IMO it's incredibly important to take some pics in order to view the dress more objectively, and to be able to think about it once you're at home.  No wonder so many brides end up with dress regret - I know I would have, if I wasn't able to make a decision on my own time, with my own pics on my computer.  Sorry for the rant, I just feel so strongly about this :)
