Please forgive my lack of "photoshop" skills. LOL That's the idea I want atleast! Anyways, who do you think I should go with?

 

 

 

Hi I am new to this thread and wish I found it ages ago. I am expecting this dress from Babyonline tomorrow and dont think I asked enough questions before placing my order so very nervous about what I will get.

The dress is beautiful.  I've only ordered from Monica Bridal.  Two wedding dresses and a veil.  The two dresses are in my profile album.  The ruffled dress and the pink dress.  The veil hasn't arrived yet for the pink dress.  The other is a sample pronovias.  I think the only complaints that were ever posted about Monica Bridal on here was about sizing.  I'm sure some others will chime in. My ruffled dress was a little big but that was my fault for not having my measurements taken by a pro.  I had pro measurements taken to provide to the rep for the pink dress and you can see from the pics that it fit like a glove.  They are fantasic with detailing ie beads, embroidery and appliques etc etc.  The rep is a sweetheart to deal with and is very accommodating.  Just make sure you have lots of conversation with her before you order.   Good luck.

Ok Ladies.  I have the dress.  I am so excited.  I basically want the dress on the left but with the beading on the right.  For the shoulder, the beading will also be just like the right picture.  In the back, I want the beading to line the "V".  What do you think?  Do you think Monica Bridal can replicate?  From this thread it seems as they have the best beading techniques.
