All organza with a white sash and white flower

 

I asked if it was possible to make it a slight mermaid a little fitted through the hips, after some back and forth i decided to NOT do the fitted as I was nervous her making it without a picture AND i thought it would be better to be flowy for my underwater photoshoot.

 

I just recieved her photos on the almost finished dress (Missing flower)

 

Here they are:

 

As you can see it is defineately a MERMAID Style!!

 

Although i dont mind the dress at all- I am worried it will be too constricting for the underwater photo shoot?!

 

So do i ask her to fix it risking it what might happen to the quality or do i leave it as is?

 

So torn...

 

And for those of you who are wondering the dress cost $220 USD

 

 

Suggestions on what to do as well as anyother changes alterations I may be missing would be greatly apprecated!

 

Thanks all!

looks lovely to me. i think the underwater photo shoot will look fantastic. just think "arial - the little mermaid" you will get the flowy effect from the bottom of the dress under water. no need to stress they did a great job!

    I finally got my 2 bridesmaids to have a look at my dress. They both said that the dress looks nice and minor faults can't be seen that much. :)

      I was just looking at her dresses on etsy!  i'm thinking about buying a gemma replica from her after my dhgate failure.  Can you tell me how the fabric is after you receive it?

              I've been reading up on this thread and was really interested in Gaininer Bridal but I've googled and googled it and can't find it! The eBay shop has no items for sale! Help!

                My DHL Santa just delivered my reception dress! It's a replica of Pronovias Finlandia. Ordered a custom size on DHgate from charm_baby. The skirt looks a little bit more ruffled than the original, the beading on the belt is rather different and the dress is a little bit longer than I asked. But overall I am really satisfied with it (expecially for the price!). And it's also so comfortable and nicely lined inside.

                    no i never got it made.  i was going to use an etsy seller that i think could have done a decent job, but it was going to cost $900.  it was going to be my reception dress so my limit was around $300.  i ended up going w/ a gemma replica from a dhgate seller.  it's still in the process of being made.

                    Hi! Im also thinking about ordering through dh gate and wondering what seller you used? Were you happy with the result? Thanks!
