      Oh thats very reasonable. Where did you get it at? Do you think if I ordered 11 they would give a discount?

        I have been trying to post pics of the dress I got from an online company for a week now. Theses posts are stuck in moderation. This sucks! I love this forum but it's not all that fun if I can't get feedback on my dress too. Yes, I am being a big baby .... If there is something I'm doing wrong, I hope to get some help. So if you know something I don't.... Thanks!. Nice dresses ladies!

              I fell in love with this Modern Trousseau Autumn dress.  I am wondering if anyone has experience purchasing lace dresses from the online stores?

                    I used vipweddingdresses.com

                     

                     

                    PROS:

                    Communication was OK, email is better, but I always sent an confirmation email after being on the phone with them. They made the dress well structure wise.... It doesn't feel anywhere near cheap against the skin. The price is amazing... $181, they did not exact the skirt of the original dress which I asked them to change, but they gave me a bodice that I love more that the orig! The dress fits PERFECTLY (but I am not wearing a petticoat in the pic). When the pics are up the train will seem to go wild, they fixed this before shipping the dress to me. The dress also go to me 2 weeks earlier than expected.

                     

                    CONS:

                     

                    The packaging.... hmmm, hard to believe it fit in there!! It was punctured so there was a hole that went through the outer package and inner plastic covering, however, they were smart enough to turn the dress inside out, so no probs after all.

                    Trying to read reviews on their not-so-well-maintained website will lead you to a forum discussing another website which has to be an online pharmacy of some sort. Weird I know. I almost freaked out because I was already nervous to begin with so I didn't need that too. But all went well.

                     

                    There are these weird (just a few) seams in the skirt of the dress (the seams in the bodice are ok, even and symmetrical... I will have my aunt pin some nice sparkle decor to hold over the two near the hip if it really to bothers me (very easy fix, at least really easy to figure something out for it).

                     

                    TRUTH IS, I am very pleased with my dress and the appliques in the bodice...CLASSIC, especially since they had my dress almost done in 11 days. I told them an earlier wedding date to make sure I was still within my 45 days for pay pal protection. I would have paid more for the dress. And this particular dress is pretty darn NICE.

                     

                    Another note! If you want/need a particular fabric, request that they stick to the script. If you're like me, you may trust the artistic opinion of your dressmaker more...

I cant believe it's already here...it arrived in less than a week!! I'm soooo excited... unfortunately, I'm out of town right now, so i wont be able to open it til next week... uuuuugh... i want to try it on so badly! I want to see it... but: I told my FI to stay away from the package... hahaa...

And I have to admit: I looooooooooove the dress!! I wanted some changes to the original dress (no shoulder strap, add beadings to bodice) and they did it exactly how i wanted it. I love it! However, in one of the pics, it seems like the right part of the bodice is uneven. I dont know, if it's because they didnt tie it in the back correctly in that pic or if it's really uneven like it looks like... I've emailed them about it... let's see what they say... what do you think?

                       

                      Here is the original dress from Demetrios:

                      3170-012.jpg

                       

                       

                       

                       

                      14658-8534-4.jpg14658-8534-2.jpg

                      14658-8534.jpg

                      This is the pic that makes me a bit worried... the right upper part of the bodice looks off. I dont notice it in the other pics though - is it because they tied it incorrectly or weird angle or something??
