        Hi Ladies.  I got some pics of myself in the dress.  I did them myself, so they aren't great, but they give you an idea of what its like on.


        Its hard to see the train as I couldn't really arrange it myself, but the pics should give you an idea.  I also decided I might still thicken the back up a bit more :)


        Okay, so the pics are massive so I couldn't put them here directly, so I created a album on my profile.  Its called 'final dress' .  Hope you can see it.  Let me know if there are any issues.




        Here's a sneak peak, detailed pics of lining, lace etc in the album.

            Marzm-The dress is absolutely beautiful on you. It fits you like a glove! Gorgeous workmanship on the embroidery, lace and every single detail. I love it!!!! :)  One for knock offs, zero for haute couture lol :)

              Hi ladies,


              I am so glad I found this thread!  I actually purchased a dress locally for $800 in March, only to be told 6 months before the wedding that they "no longer feel comfortable" completing the order because they've had some issues with the designer.  So... time to start the search again!  I found a dress I absolutely loved, but it was over $3,500!  I am considering having it made by Monica Bridal or Duosheng.


              Right now Monica Bridal quoted me $135 which is AMAZING, but I'm a little nervous about it since I've only found two examples of finished dresses.  I figure worst case scenario, I could just use it for my TTD.  Also, as an FYI to girls who have recently ordered their dresses from Monica Bridal, I asked them if they would send me photos of the finished dress before they shipped it so that I could communicate any necessary changes, and they said they could do it.  Still haven't heard back from Duosheng, but here are photos of the original dress I want.  I love the rose detail; do you think Monica Bridal will be able to replicate it?  I don't want to end up with a separate flower that's just glued on to the dress, lol.

                Lisa, did you pick yours up from the post-office?


                Very pretty Karen.  They'll be able to do a great job on that!  Would you get it in that colour too.
