      yay! I'm so glad you love your dress Beachy! I'm feeling the same anxiety too, but I've seen only good things from them so whatever comes I'm sure it will be good.  Can't wait to see some pics of your dress! :D

        Thanks! I definitely will share once I get it, I'm still in the process of working out details with them since I do want to make some adjustments. I went with

          Mocha,

          I am sorry to hear that, I hope your dress will arrive on time, and will fit 110% perfect!

          780 Chick,

          If you don't want polyester satin, then you must go with silk satin, so not many sellers will take ur order and at that price, u will be better off getting the original one on a sample sale.

           

          Beachy,

           

          Can't wait to see your dress

          $59 is a steal! LOL! at first, I thought it was a pregnant woman's dress...heehee

           

          LeilaMarie,

           

          Never heard of Ava Bridal, but if all the ebay reviews are good, I guess they are good.

           

          OK, I know this sounds a bit mean, but I will say it again, DO NOT order ur dress a few size smaller because you think you may loss some weight if u r lucky/stress/happy/angels watching over u...etc.  You didn't achieve the current weight because you were unlucky/relax/unhappy.  Of course, if you are dedicated to loss weight and run like a hamster on a wheel 24/7 and eating rabbit food every meal, then it is different story.  Your man love the way you are, and a too-small dress is not repairable.

            Bonnie do you think there would be a big difference between polyester satin and silk satin? Which seller on DHgate would have the best fabric and do a good replica? I'm willing to take a chance if it still looks good...

              Thanks Bonnie... I definitely need the good vibes.

               

              And I totally agree about ordering a dress too small. You can always have a dress altered to be taken in. If it's too small there's a slim chance of any seamstress being able to make it fit. It is definitely harder for most people to lose weight, and nothing looks worse than trying to squeeze into a too small outfit. I actually considered adding a little because I know I will indulge the days before our wedding.

                lol it is funny you say that prettypigpig, the reason we got dresses like this is because my sister will have only JUST given birth 2 months before my wedding and is worried about the "jelly belly" and another of my BM's is larger and didnt want anything that would cling to her and show "lumps n bumps" so we figured the almost maternity style was suited for what they were looking for :P

                 

                I am sure they will look beautiful once they are on! AND on a more exciting note they were shipped today so when I receive them I will post some actual pics.

                 

                I know they are NO WHERE near as exciting as all the beautiful wedding dresses we are seeing but I am still excited about my online purchase and figured I might as well post them here incase anyone else is looking at getting BM dresses! ;o)

                  Thanks for doing that, I am looking to possibly get my BM dresses on a knock-off site as well, as I would like to custom size since one of my BM's is a F cup.

                    These are not knockoffs but they are a great price! I know we are all about saving money on this forum.

                     

                    I am so excited!!!!  I finally ordered my bridesmaids dresses. If any of you have read my previous post you may know that at one point all of my bridesmaids had dropped out on me. Well, I could not order dresses because my bridesmaids were an ever changing situation. We think we have it all in order now but you never know lol. Anyway, I am a member of the Ideeli website and today they had a sale on the Ravon convertible dress. It was only $69!!!!!!!!!!!!! And one size fits all!!!!!!!!!! And in my wedding color!!!!!!!!!!! Yipeeee!!!!! Needless to say I ordered 4 for all the girls (my treat because they are spending so much and using vacay time just to come). I am so happy! I love the versatility of this dress and I am sure that they will all be able to wear it again and again (even if they gain weight lol). Below are a few pictures of the dress as well as a link to a video demonstration of the dress (the one on the model in the video is the exact one that I bought).

                     

                    The sale ends tomorrow if anyone else is interested (I believe the short dress is only $50 or so). PM me if you would like an invite to join the Ideeli site. They always have great sales on everything. The retail price of these dresses are usually $150 and up.
