        So this is the replica dress?  Or the original?  The bridal shop background is throwing me off, lol.  Either way, it's gorgeous!

          Okay here are my pics...It's hard to take them by yourself.  It's hard to get a sense of the color because of the flash on satin but I love it.  I'm having a veil made in blush pink with some little crystals on it or something like that.  The front view looks like I'm 4 feet tall because I'm on bare feet and I was sinking into the cushions.  CIMG9889.JPGCIMG9909.JPGCIMG9912.JPGCIMG9930.JPG

            Looks gorgeous Ginger! I think the fit is amazing considering it was ordered all online.

                I didn't ask for it but I def got some extra boning in the top of the dress...as you can see for yourself in the picture, looks like it has built-in boobs :)  I'll take all the help I can get.  It's just a smidge loose right at the bust line but simple little alter.  I'm thrilled with how it turned out.  Can't wait to get a veil...I also may have my friend add some tulle to the back under the train just to give it some structure...

                  Seriously, it is amazing and beautiful! I like the color and the fit...and of course...the Monica Bridal beadings!

                    Monica Bridal is amazing with the details.  Considering I sketched it out using "picture it" free hand, I cannot believe the fantastic job they did with the embroidery and beadings.  Honestly the embellishment at the waist looks much better in person.  As far as the fit goes, I cannot stress enough have someone do it for you.  I paid a professional tailor this time to measure me and that was the result.  Perfect fit.  Now considering I am trying this on just after dinner, four bottles of water and a glass of wine later, and PMS, I'd say I'm golden.
