    I got my dress! I was told I'd have to sign for it - but nope, they just left it on my doorstep. Good thing I work from home and was around to get it today! And I do still like it - but it doesn't fit great.

    I know once I get it altered it will fit so much better. It doesn't stay up great (and I thought I had a decent size chest!) - so in these pictures I am kind of having to hold it up by either sticking out my ribcage or just holding it.

    Also, it's longer than I thought. I am not sure if the flat shoes I bought will work know - which makes me a little nervous - I had planned on going barefoot down the aisle. Now I might trip! ANd I can't get it shorted w/o a huge effort because of the detail at the bottom - which is why we ordered it to my height (included in price for this dress).

    Anyway - here it is! Excuse the poor pictures, it was really hard by myself. And the akward pose and looks - I was getting frustrated, and trying to hold up my dress. There are already a few of you on this forum who have seen me naked, we dont' need any more!

        ann it looks lovely. once you get it fitted it the length will probably be a little better. do you think? dont worry, once it fits you will look like goddess of all brides.

                    ummm, i don't think it took me THAT long! remember, i've been unpacking for almost a week, i had the box cutter handy AND my box-opening skills are at their best!

                    the problem was finding a floor length mirror! i had to run down to the basement where my dressor mirror was still sitting on the floor so it worked as a floor length! lol

                      Ann, it is beautiful! And I agree about the alterations making all of the difference. Once it is taken in so it fall from your "bodaciousness', it will hang at the right length. Not to worry. It will fit great, stay up, and you will be even more gorgeous than ever!
