    Thanks for the responses on sizing ladies and for the photos. Prettypig's dress is gorgeous so I think I will go with Monica's bridal.

     

    So does this dress look like it is made of tulle or organza to you guys? I'm not sure what materials to ask for!

      So I ordered a dress from Monica Bridal (pics posted a few pages back) but was not entirely thrilled with how it turned out.  I dont think this was the dressmakers fault though - we probably should have chatted more about the dress before it was made.  I think we just had different visions of the dress in our minds. 

       

      Ordered another one from Babyonline afterwards, just received pics and I'm in love!  We chatted for almost 2 weeks about the dress, went over every little detail (she even showed me the beads she was planning to use!) and I think all the planning made a difference.  Here are the pics, I cant wait to receive this dress  :)

          Cookiemunchkin - That one looks so much better. I think the more detail involved, the better it is to discuss with the dress maker. It makes such a big difference when you see the real thing and they only see a picture. Especially since the pictures don't always have show all the detail. I'm glad you're happier!

              I went to DHgate.com but there are like 10,000 dresses to look through!! ah!


              If you send the picture to the dressmaker they will replicate whatever you want. I did that for both of mine. You can either ask them to create a new item with your picture, or they will tell you which dress to order and include "Payment for dress as discussed" in the comments.

                      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?
