So this is the replica dress?  Or the original?  The bridal shop background is throwing me off, lol.  Either way, it's gorgeous!

Okay here are my pics...It's hard to take them by yourself.  It's hard to get a sense of the color because of the flash on satin but I love it.  I'm having a veil made in blush pink with some little crystals on it or something like that.  The front view looks like I'm 4 feet tall because I'm on bare feet and I was sinking into the cushions.  CIMG9889.JPGCIMG9909.JPGCIMG9912.JPGCIMG9930.JPG

I didn't ask for it but I def got some extra boning in the top of the dress...as you can see for yourself in the picture, looks like it has built-in boobs :)  I'll take all the help I can get.  It's just a smidge loose right at the bust line but simple little alter.  I'm thrilled with how it turned out.  Can't wait to get a veil...I also may have my friend add some tulle to the back under the train just to give it some structure...

Monica Bridal is amazing with the details.  Considering I sketched it out using "picture it" free hand, I cannot believe the fantastic job they did with the embroidery and beadings.  Honestly the embellishment at the waist looks much better in person.  As far as the fit goes, I cannot stress enough have someone do it for you.  I paid a professional tailor this time to measure me and that was the result.  Perfect fit.  Now considering I am trying this on just after dinner, four bottles of water and a glass of wine later, and PMS, I'd say I'm golden.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
