Terilina,

 

I think you need more pics (clear and which we can see the full dress) in order for a dressmaker to get the full picture of the dress. 

 

Mimi,

 

Beautiful dress!

 

Lisa,

 

You have to try it on to really feel if it is the one or not.

Wow mimi73 your dress is beautiful, you look fantastic! I¨m thinking about buying a knockoff from ebay, as i already have a dress that my mum bought me, but i´m at least a size smaller since then, and the dress doesn´t look great now. :-(

not sure how to break it to my mum, but there´s no way i can expect her to buy me another one, so i reckon it´s going to have to be a cheap one for me, although looking through these pages at how good everyone looks, i can live with that!!!!!

Thanks ladies I appreciate the thoughts! :)

 

Ok as promised but a little late.

 

Review of the dress. I tried it on at work so don't mind the bathroom backround lol

 

It was too big and long and the boning isn't strong enough for my girls lol and didn't give me that hourglass figure that the original does. Then again it's too big so I couldn't really pull it in tight enough to see as it is a corset back. It needs to be steamed.

 It's a beautiful dress and they did a fantastic job on the beading and the overall quality of the dress but the bodice is pleated and the original dress isn't like that. The beading detail is not slanted like the original dress but more straight across the lower waist. It has smaller scattered beadint on the shirt and the lining of the side and bottom of the skirt also which you can't really see in the pics.The petticoat they sent was too small and short and looks silly with the dress. It is supposed to be a-line but doesn't give that effect. I am wearing it in the pics. The train is also longer than I would have liked but hey some brides like a really long train.

 I may use it for my trash the dress but will have to have it altered so I am not sure yet i might just sell it and order another one closer to the date after I lose more weight. For the price they charge it is a steal for any bride on a budget.

 

Here are some pics

It is a really pretty dress. I like how they did all the details. Did you send in your own measurements? I think if it was altered more to your size it would be better.

 

But I think it looks a lot better than some Maggie originals. Good luck!

 

Btw... I asked if Monica Bridal would send pictures before shipping and they agreed!

Thanks Mocha! I did send my own measurements but maybe because it's a corset i should have sent smaller. That's great about the pictures. Too bad that wasn't offered when i ordered cause I would have seen that it was far too long!

You have me worried now. I ordered a corset just so that I would have the extra room to tighten the dress if necessary. I did my own measurements and really hope they make the dress a little smaller.

Lisa, I think it looks gorgeous on you!!!!  I do see what you're talking about with the beading, but it still looks realllllly pretty!  I definitely think it would be great for your trash the dress!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
