Marzm - Absolutely Gorgeous! I'm so glad that it turned out and that it fits so well.

 

Karen&Rene - I just ordered from Monica Bridal last week, maybe I will have to ask about pre-shipping pictures. It might help tide me over until it arrives.

That's odd that Monica Bridal agreed to do this.  I had asked them to do this about a week or so ago before they shipped mine and I was told they could not do it.  The person I was dealing with said she was not in the same building as the factory. 

 

Weird but I'm glad they have agree to do the photos for you mochamakes3.

Ok ladies. Latest update is they have attempted delivery so I guess I will be picking up the dress tonight after work. YAY!

That's great news about the pics, I wish they would have done this for me when I asked.

I'm so excited to see your dress, Lisa!  If it turned out well, I'll be placing my order ASAP.  I'll probably order it in ivory, not the champagne-ish color that is in the photo I posted.  Because I'm ordering a completely custom dress (i.e. not based off of any dress they currently sell) they told me just to purchase a different dress that is the same price and put "payment for dress mentioned in email" in the remarks.  This seems strange to me... I just want to make sure they don't send me the dress in the listing, totally not my style, lol.  Did anyone else have this experience?  I also wonder if they told me they would send photos because they were trying to make the sale... let me know what they tell you ladies.

Karen-I wasn't comfortable ordering another dress either so they took a day or two and created an item number with the picture of my dress so i could pay on that one and put all notes and explanations in the emails attached to that dress item number. Ask them to do it and they will. That is their standard answer i think but press the issue. They flat out told me no to pictures prior to me paying so they didn't do that to get my sale. It just might be something they changed to be competitive with other dress makers as we are visual creatures! I hope they change it for you future brides cause then you don't feel like you are taking such a risk.

Marzm, that's a beautiful dress!

 

Lisa, cant wait to see yours :)

 

I so dont belong on this thread anymore but cant help living through you guys vicariously lol.  I just might order bridesmaids dresses through Monica Bridal though since so many of you seem satisfied with them.

I might order BM dresses from Monica Bridal also but haven't decided yet. I am going to wait and see how my dress turns out. I did find a really cheap alternative for BM dresses though through AVON of all places (they are like Mary Kay kinda). They have a blue convertible dress that is on sale for 34.99 plus taxes. Here is the link.

I like it cause they can wear it like 7-11 different ways, it's light and flowey and it's very close to my color.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
