    I searched and search.. we have a short engagement.. so I was getting a little rushed... I have to order off the rack since we are getting married in Mexico in Feb..

    I looked.. I got tired... I searched the internet and thought i found the perfect dress...

    it came in last week.. and I hate it, it doesn't fit properly, but more improtant the style is just not flattering on me.. Ahh.. now I have to try and sell it before I can afford another one.. $560 in and I hope to get $400 out..

    It's a mon cheri 18107 denstination dress.... kinda funny.. althought I was looking for the perfect dress... now I would just be happy with something that looks decent..

      OMG that's the dress I was DYING to try on when I was looking!!! I've already got my dress and I'm absolutely in love with it ... but I thought THAT dress was the one for me!!

      I'm sure you can find someone who wants to buy it. I wouldn't be worried about that at all. And don't worry, you'll find THE ONE...

        Post pics on here under the For Sale category & see if anyone is interested!!
        Or maybe bring it to a seamstress & see what they can do with it - maybe one simple alteration could make all the difference!!

          I KNOW!! Miranda.. It's a beautiful dress.. but it just doesn't look how I hoped..

          I've already written off the dress and just want to get rid of it.. it upsets me everytime I see it.. but the up side... a size 8 was too big.. haha

              Wow!! That is a gorgeous dress!! I'm sorry to hear it doesn't fit you the way you were hoping it would.

              When I read your post just now, I felt like I was reading my own haha. I got engaged on Aug 19/08 and I'm having my wedding on Feb 19/09, which is a very short engagement. Like you, I had no other choice but to buy off the rack, but I did luck out. I don't know what your body type is but generally it seems like most girls can't go wrong with an a-line style dress, they're very flattering. I would have loved to wear a slip dress or something light and airy with chiffon but they always just fall in all the wrong places on me. Keep trying, I know you will find something you love, or at least like! Good luck!! :)

                That was one I saw online too and considered. But I was too chicken to buy something before trying it! So many times I think things will look awesome but when you get them on it doesn't work so much.

                I hope you can sell it!! Definitely post it, on the forum, on craigslist, on ebay maybe? That increases your chances.

                  Try and go visit a David's Bridal. They say you should count up to 20 weeks to have a dress come in but :
                  - you can actually pick a dress from the rack if you like it. The only place I know you can do that.
                  - most dresses will take less than this to come. On the three I had shortlisted after my first visit, all three were taking 8 weeks to come in.

                  More importantly, they have all styles and good prices.

                  If you don't want to sell your first one you can use it for you TTD session...

                    That was the exact dress that I drove 2.5 hrs away to look at in a boutique. I was for sure it was the dress I wanted until I saw it in person. It didn't look like I thought it would in person. I personally thought that the online pic and info was very misleading. It is still pretty, but just not what I thought.
