    here is the link for Monica Bridal, like someone else said, you will want to create a DH Gate account so you can send messages and chat with her.

    The communication has been top notch!  My dress was made in 10 days and shipped out on 11/29, I anticipate it next week.

      OMG, did you order your dress from Eva's Bridal in Oak Lawn?  That's where I originally ordered my dress, then they canceled it due to issues with the designer, then I went back and almost ordered a different dress but held off, and then I heard it burned down!  Craziness.  I was wondering what was going to happen to everyone who got their dresses there.  Glad to hear it worked out for you!

        Yes that was where I ordered it.  They were great and according to the news all but 2 girls got their dresses in time for the immediate weddings.  Everyone one else was far enough off that they can try to do something.  Even my dress was discontinued already (ordered it so long ago - the day before Valentines Day), but they have such a long standing relationship with the manufacturers/designers, that they were able to work it out. The owner even gave me a hug!

          Well I'm in the process of finalizing the details of a new dress that I'm having Monica Bridal make for me :) It turns out that I'm having a wedding in Canada days before we go to Mexico for our beach wedding.  So what's a girl to do but order another dress.  We're having a "vintage style" wedding so I went back to the original dress that I was going to have Monica Bridal make.  It's a Tara Keely vintage style dress.  I'm ordering it in Antique Rum Pink.  Satin of course.  Adding some beading and details to the train. 

           

           

           

           

           I have my Pronovias that I plan to wear in Mexico so that leaves my ruffled dress out in the cold :)  It was too big for me.  I hate to set her free but I've decided to sell it. 

           

          Prettypig - your barbie pink reception dress is gorgeous.  In fact I asked the rep to use the same satin fabric she used in your dress to make mine but in the rum pink color.

            Ginger the new dress looks very elegant. Too bad you have to sell your ruffled dress. It is so cute. But I am glad to see you're putting your faith in Monica Bridal once again. Can't wait to see the new dress as well.

              Hey Ladies! I've been around for a long time... fiance and I had to move our wedding to an unknown date. Recently, I got super bored of not having anything wedding related to do, so I bought a dress from www.peridress.com on a whim. What's more, I bought it several sizes smaller than I currently am ... but I'm ok with that. Thought I'd throw out some pics... Inspiration dress is Amy Michelson's Grace (http://www.amymichel...opup_grace.html). The dress looks fairly similar to the inspiration pictures... so I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. Now I don't know what to do with my time anymore ;).

               

              Here's a few pics of the dress:

              AM Grace Bottom Hem.jpg

               

              I was hoping the under lining would be a bit of a nude color instead of the ivory color of the dress, but I figure if I really want that changed, I can order another... other than that... it seems like a fair great replica. Dress quality seems study... communication was decent with peridress... they do not provide any kind of progress pictures or updates -- like I said, this was on a whim. :)

                Oops! Forgot one of the pictures! Here's the back of the dress.

                 

                Need to find me a size 10 gal to model the dress so I can see what it looks like on an actual person. I'll be a size 10 soon enough!
