My dress fit perfectly. I did my own measurements, but my mom used to be a seamstress and she showed me when I was about 10 years old lol. It is fairly easy to do it but I would suggest going to a seamstress just to be sure.

WretchedDeviant - my then fiance did mine. Haha it was quite entertaining. I think they sent a picture of where to measure so I just went off that. BUT it helps that I got a corset back and any mis-measurements were easily adjusted for.

I bought a TTD!!! Ok so it was totally unexpected and I wasn't looking for it. We were out looking for a MOB dress (I was with a friend) when I stumbled across it. Tried it on and loved it....so I ordered one cause the one I tried on in the store was a size 0 someone had ordered but it didn't fit her. Ok so here it is, I received a coupon from Nordstrom and figured what the heck let me go look for something for my mom. Well while I was waiting at the register to ask a question up comes this girl with a dress saying she needed to exchange it. I took a look at the dress and it was fab! It was waited till she retuned it and in the meantime struck up a conversation (because of my profession I am always networking) anyway she mentioned she bought the dress in a size 0 and 2 because it ran small according to the reviews and she wasn't sure, the 2 fit so she was returning the 0!!! Just my luck, as soon as her transaction was done I tried it on......LOVEd IT!!! FABULOUS! But being me I didn't want the one she returned so I ordered it when I got home online and used my coupon. It came out to $151.30!!! Been trying to post pics but my photobucket is acting up! The great thing about Nordstrom is you can always return in store for any reason. I have to get the hem taken up (cause I am a shorty 5'1) but other than that I love it and it fits like a dream. Can't wait to post pics.

thanks girls for your posts again.... I think I will write gianinar and tell them that I have so many issues with that dress and that I tried it over and over again to see if I will change my mind but I didnt. I think about ordering another one (hopefully gianinar will give me a discount/refund or something, I mean I ordered 5 dresses already!). But this time I will request poly or silk tafetta and make it much more simple. I can still use that one as my ttd (even though we didnt plan a ttd session :-D but thats a good reason to do it).

Now I just wait for my bridesmaids dresses to arrive cause I dont want to complain before I havent received them.

I hope I am doing this properly! I just got my proofs from Gianinar today. I think it looks ok, but needs some work.

now I need to decide what to do.... it looks as thought the beadwork is non existent, but I think that is a language misunderstanding. I said in the email for them to 'note' the beading... I think they thought I meant 'not' any :)

I am thinking the top looks a little crooked? Many of the proof photos I have seen look that way, so I am not sure what to do.

I asked them to do the dress with no train, so I am very happy with that part.

 

Any thoughts?

    • 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?
