      I have had the mag ad tear in my wedding binder since Dec! I really wanted to order it, it was listed at $799, but I found an unbelievable deal on another gown that is very pretty as well. So I'm biting my tongue and say oh well.

              Ladies I tried on this dress and it didn't look as amazing on as it did in the magazine. It could have been because the sample size was small too small on my hips, but the flowers kind of dominate your shoulder. I am doing a hair flower, no question, and if I had gone with this dress the hair flower and shoulder flowers would have been too much. I think it would look better on a taller person, I am only 5' 5" and it just didn't look right on me.

                Same here, I was IN LOVE with this dress when I saw it and was convinced that it was "the dress" then I tried it on...I'm pretty short on 5'3" and it made me look stumpy and pregnant. It was flowly but I felt heavy in it none the less. Given the sample was a 10 and I'm a 2 so there was a lot extra, I think the right size would've still made me feel like I was drowing in the dress.
                It's still a gorgeous dress, I just wouldn't recommend it for short people :)

                  Okay well my dress FINALLY CAME IN. At first I didn't love it because like some of you said, the flowers dominate my shoulders, but since the flowers are detachable (thank God) I opted to just place the flowers right underneath the bust area. It's gorgeous this way and now I love the dress.

                  Its very fitting, yet flowy at the same time, perfect for the beach.

                  I will post pics tonight so you guys can see.
