Katelynn - I went with Monica Bridal both times. My first order was for my ceremony gown and another dress that I had hoped to wear for our welcome dinner. I never saw the original version of my ceremony gown. I saw the picture online and I decided that it would be my "just in case I can't find anything I love" which I haven't. She sent me pictures before shipping and I had a ruffle added. I was so excited to try it on when it arrived. Sadly, I had done my own measurements which resulted in it being much too big on me. I took it in for alterations and had them move a couple of ruffles as well as take in the sides. Now it fits perfectly. The other dress was not like the description and I almost think it is the wrong dress completely. It was supposed to be a halter and when I spoke to Monica Bridal I was told that the straps could be moved but that is not the case. I keep forgetting to send her the picture. So overall, I am happy now that the dress has been altered to fit. The bead work was amazing and the dress is nice and light. I've since decided to wear it with a crinoline so I'm glad it was light to begin with.
My second order was also with Monica Bridal for my reception dress. Hopefully it is waiting for me when I get home so then I can report on how it turned out.
Overall, they were good to deal with. I would order from them again if I needed another formal gown. Hmmmm...maybe for the AHR?
