    On Thursday evening I was at work when my Mom and sis showed up with my wedding dress and my daughter's flower girl dress. We decided to order them from ebay and take a chance. After all, if we weren't satisfied, we could order the real deal from around here, and just use the knock off for TTD. Anyway, they looked awesome!!!!!!!! They only took 2 weeks to get here after ordering them. Since I was at work and there were some patients that were in the ER, I couldn't run off and try it on....but I wanted too!
    Since I had to work until 11:30pm, I was hoping to try it on on Fri before heading to the city, but when I stopped there, no one was home so I could get it done up. Therefore there was no point even trying it on. Also, FI and the kids were outside in the van waiting for me, so I didn't want to take to long. I got back from the city earlier today (Sun) and went straight to my Mom's before going home. I HAD to try it on. My Mom was in the shower, but as soon as she was out, I got changed. It fits great, although I need to lose a few more lbs so that you can't see all my 'extra skin' lol around the middle quite so well. Mom said she will probably order me a body shaper thingy and that should help! Anyways, I love it. It isn't as heavy as the Alfred Angelo dress, but I think that will help keep me cooler on our wedding day! There isn't all the beading that the AA one has either, but we are going to add our own beads on since we have time, although I still like without the beads too! All in all, both the dresses fit us great and look beautiful, although the colour was off from what we wanted. We picked the colour swatch that looks like a teal green and the colour of the dress is turquoise. I am fine with it though, as that was the initial colour that I had wanted before going teal. (Pics will be coming, as I didn't have my camera with me earlier)

    Another package arrived on Thursday as well. All the stuff that we ordered from OTC. That only took about a week and a half to get here! I was amazed. Once we get an OOT bag together, I will take pics and post them. I work the next couple days, so I will do it as soon as I can this week!!

      Wow, that's quick, can't wait to see pics. I also got my dress from ebay (not as quick as yours) but am more than pleased with it.

                  That was my FAVORITE part of the wedding planning. COming home to boxes on the front porch. I'm so sad now because I don't have anything to look forward to.

                  Can't wait to see pics of it all. Congrats on finding such an easy way to get the attire taken care of. One less headache!
