    Hi! Sorry I have been gone for so long. I live here in Japan and its been a difficult past 2 weeks for the country. My dress from Dressilyme is now finished and I received confirmation images today. I will post the pictures soon because I am 100% happy with the quality and customer service. I wanted to thank you so much for all your advice and your help. You really inspired me.

      Hi Ladies,


      I'm new to the site and i'm so happy i came across this forum! I'm going to try dresses on for the first time at Kleinfelds in a few weeks and i'm so nervous that i wont find anything within my budget. I must say, I am totally leaning toward knocking off now! Below is the dress of my dreams (Amsale Blue Label) and I'm going to do some research to see which dressmaker will execute it the best. I'm leaning towards Landy or Babyonline. Let me know what you guys think!

          Hey girls.  I am new to this site.  I am SO happy I ran across it.   I hope I post this right haha.

          I am looking at having Maggie's Victoriana made knock off for my wedding.  I LOVE this dress but can not afford $1200 for it.   I found it from DHGate, which has good reviews, but the supplier they use for this one is LOGO Factory.  Anybody ordered anything through them?  Thank you

            I completely agree that it is easier to take in a dress than let it out; however, I've been doing WeightWatchers for five months and have lost over 35lbs. I'm not just planning on losing some weight, I am dedicated and will be continuing my new, healthy lifestyle. In this situation, I do know that I'll be much smaller by my wedding date.

              My goal is live loose 50 to 70lbs before my wedding day December 5, 2011. I also plan to have a more healthier and active lifestyle. I have no medical conditions but my fiance has highblood pressure and I want to encourage him to eat healthy as we start our life together.. I would not be trying any dresses until late May or June so by then I expect to  have lost at least 40lbs. I would not order a wedding dress too small and risk not getting in it by December.. That would be a nighmare...
