They did not charge extra for the second dress, but they did charge me extra if I wanted BOTH dresses shipped to me. They said about 10 days, but I think it was a few days more or less ( but I can't remember... lol). I do think that dress choice is amazing! So unique. and even if not the material you wanted, they definitely stayed true to the style. Sorry it took me a few days to get back to you. So busy!!!

In the Garniner dress, it looks like they put a sheer material over the entire dress (see first few pics).
I don't know much about dress making, but would there be the satin material underneath the sheer stuff?? I'm wondering if they can just remove the outer sheer material. It looks like they attached the lace detail on the bottom to the sheer material, so I would have to get them to do that to the satin part.
I really like the matte satin that they used for chris' dress (pg 205).
Chris - did it take them long to remake your dress in a different material? Also, did they charge you less for the second dress? I am also wondering if I get them to remake it, if I should buy both, just in case.
I am starting to get in a time crunch. We leave on January 12th.
I would also get them to remove the ruffle just under the waist (I don't think it turned out right). And add the ribbon to the seam under the bust and waist/hip area.
So...I think my options are to either:
-get them to remove sheer material, and hope for a beautiful dress underneath, or
-get them to remake the dress - as long as they could do it within a week or so, or
-should I take it as it is, see how it looks on me, and get a seamstress to make any changes needed.
Bonnie - I'm hoping to get your advice, too! I am also, wondering if I am wrong about the material and if the original dress has the sheer over top and maybe I don't notice it because it's so fitted??
Below, is the Garniner dress
And here is the original. (you can get a good look at the material in this picture below)
