    Well ladies, I just ordered my dress from Jeff Liu.  It should be here by the March 16-29, so I should have pics before that.  As soon as I have pics i promise to upload them :)  Pray that this turns out^^

                I don't understand your question.  If you meant how long did I took to find my dress, well, after a round of dress shopping, I was convinced I need to have my dress custom made. I didn't like the styles of the dresses that I found in the local shops (so 1980s), the samples were all size 10, so too big to try on.  However, I did know what looks good on me, and what makes me look like a dead or depressed jellyfish, a swiffer duster, a What Not to Wear candidate, a 1980 bride..etc. 


                For a Maggie with that much details on the bodice, I would invest my money with someone with better beadings and embro-skills.  Ask the dressmaker to send u sample pics of their previous work before order ur dress.

                  Prettypigpig, I think this is what Jenni is referring to. You said you saw the Pronovias dress she wants in real life : )

                    Hi, I'm boggled and cross eyed for reading so many posts today, this website is so fab!

                    I have two questions I am hoping you can answer :


                    1) Do you have the websites and/or email addresses to the main vendors you girls have used (landy, monica, etc ....)


                    2) I thought I read on here that some of these vendors accept a deposit and then send you pictures and if you are not happy you can cancel. Is that true?


                    Thanks so much and happy planning!
