    so the proof pics look super squishy. Don't know if I did something wrong! :)
    I am actually 5'9", so the dress is longer and skinnier than it looks here!

      If you don't mind me asking what material did they use?

          I'm getting worried about the fabric, they are making this dress for me in what Gianinar calls "softer and thinner satin"

          Column Wedding Dresses

          I asked Gianinar if the taffeta would be better and the response was "we will make your dress in softer and thinner satin"...

            Yikes... that answer seems pretty vague :S I think the language barrier is a huge stressor!
            I remember them saying my dress needed to be made in taffeta as it would hold the shape better. I am not sure what 'softer and thinner satin' means, but I am sure it will be good (The dress is gorgeous, by the way!) Most girls seem quite happy with their dresses.

            I have just sent an email asking if the beading just wasn't done yet in case I wanted changes made. I guess I just take my chances now. I am also waiting on another dress from China that I bought through ebay. It should be here soon.... ARRRGH! stress!!!

                Janine, you won't even believe that's the SAME dress I have!! I originally bought this one months ago and was going to wear this dress for my ceremony but then wanted something a little different. Of course, I still have this dress in case the one I'm getting made doesn't come out so great.. :)
                You are right, it is a lightweight comfy dress.

                  janine - very nice! looks so comfy!

                  mimi - your dress looks nice! you are probably right about them holding off on the beading in case they needed to change anything...but always best to clarify!

                    When I tried it on I just couldn't resist getting it. Its not my ceremony dress though, this is my TTD. You know what they say...great minds think alike. Lol!
