        WOW..they are both nice dresses!!!!  But I prefer your first dress, because I like lace tulles and beads!

          I love the dress for you sister, I am assuming this is your bridesmaid dress?  Do you mind if I ask how much that one was?!

          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...gra2.jpggra2.jpglau3.jpg

              Totally agree, I don't know why they show it like that.  Should be easy enough to cover up and hide.  It just shipped out so I should get it by the end of next week :)

              Beautiful dress!

              Most of the time for the lace up back people tie them in a knot at the bottom and tuck the strings in the dress so nothing is showing... no bow no string tails etc.  Just an idea

                Funny Prettypigpig, ironically Vera Wang actually has a line at David's bridal now!!  If you found a $99 DB dress I don't think you would be getting it "replicated" as they wouldn't be able to do it for cheaper!
                 



                 


                It is a gorgeous dress and vbbbtk is right, I don't know why they always show the corset string out but it looks silly to me... tuck those in!!!!!

                  (Sorry if this is a duplicate!  It doesn't appear to have gone through, but it's my first post, so not sure I did it right. )

                   

                   

                  OK, Ladies...  I figure I've lurked 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.  I can't seem to insert pictures here, but 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!  Thanks in advance!

                      Hi there MrsMontazemi....

                       

                      The dress absolutely beautiful!  There is no such thing as "too much" for your wedding day.  Wear what makes you feel beautiful.  There are so many great sites that offer dresses for ladies (like us) on a budget.  Here comes my plug.......
