                (Long, sorry!)

                 

                OK, Ladies...  I figure I've lerked in the shadows long enough.  :-)  Let me start by saying I've read (and re-read) the hundreds of posts contributed to this topic and I can't thank you all enough for sharing your experiences!  Based on everything I read, I've worked up enough courage to take the leap and hopefully enough knowledge to do so intelligently. However, I was all set to order my gown, but find myself at a cross roads now and would REALLY appreciate some objective feedback.

                 

                For reference, I visited several local bridal salons and tried on countless gowns.  Well, I found nothing I loved, but I learned a lot about my taste in gowns.... For my body type (5'10", street size 4, but with a butt and boobs), I definitely want a mermaid silhouette.  I do not, however like shiny fabrics. I love things that remind me of Old Hollywood have an antique or vintage vibe.  I fully intend to wear a French net, birdcage veil and will likely carry a broach bouquet.  My fiance's only request was that I not hide the girls, so I've been leaning towards a sweetheart neckline.  When I found nothing I loved in the shops, I basically spec'd out a composite picture of a gown composed of elements from other gowns I liked, and started shopping my gown (two tone, mermaid gown  in ivory lace and netting over dark champagne satin, with a deep sweetheart neckline and brush train),  based on the recos found here. 

                 

                And then...  just before I was ready to make a decision on maker and pull the trigger on ordering, I stumbled across a picture of a new gown.  It isn't even in stores yet and won't be until fall, so I couldn't look at it in person if I wanted to.  You can see large pictures of it here --> http://www.bestbrida...large/C184.html   

                 

                So... Finally, my questions...  I'd like some honest feedback on the dress I stumbled across.  Is it "too much", overdone, too blingy?  Even if it could be replicated, do you think I'd look back at pictures of it later with regret?  I'm not sure if it's just my anxiety over ordering online that has me second guessing and considering something new or not.  If this new gown really is my gown, have I just killed the idea of having it custom made?  In other words, is there a reliable shop out there that may be able to pull it off? 

                 

                I'm SO confused!  Any and all feedback would be welcomed!  Thank you!

                  that is my thoughts exactly! There are such great reviews and responses to going this route. I wish you the best of luck - make sure to keep us posted when it arrives!

                      Okay girls.. I now have 2 dresses and can't decide wich one to wear, because my first dress with tulle is beautiful but i don't like the way they did the breast, but I love the beading.. the second dress arrived today is not as romantic or elegant as the first one, but fits me perfectly, I don't need to do a single alteration! and it's exactly like the inspirational photo... what do you girls say?

                       

                      Lindy: my sister's dress that is made with chiffon is WOnderful.. it also fits my very well, the quality of the fabric is great (much better than their tulle or organza), so I can totally recomend Babyonline for a chiffon dress...


                      Did you dress arrive today? I'm excited to know how it turned out!!!
