    Trivera - it was $116 with free shipping.  I tried it on, but my daughter (10) couldn't get the zipper past a tricky seam and I didn't want to risk breaking the zipper.  So as soon as I can find someone besides my fiance to zip it for me, I'll post pics of me in it.  In the meantime, here are a couple of pics of the dress hanging in my son's room (messy, sorry).

     

     

    It obviously needs steamed/pressed, but it's made so well!

      @MissJali - Thanks!  What a great pick me up to hear someone likes my dress!!  Have been feeling some dress regret in the past week - With only 9 days before the wedding - that is a scary feeling!! haha

       

      Anyways, I bought my dress in the summer - I didn't have any upgrades, it came with the belt and the underskirt and I order a simple veil ($20) - In total, I believe it came to about $550 - Just so you know an approximate amount you'll be looking at!

       

      Congratulations and Good Luck!!

        I ordered a dress from Wonderxue of Etsy for my Trash the Dress dress.

         

        I gave her these photos:

        This was to be the top:

         

        This to be the bottom:

         

        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!

        Here is an update to my last post!. I did ask the seamstress to take out the dress a little bit so it wasnt so "mermaid" and she has shipped me the dress, here it is:

        Sorry for the photo quality they were taken on my blackberry! The dress is wrinkled from the shipping but you get the idea.

         

        The dress fits like a glove ( a little big in the chest) but I will get it taken in.

         

         $220 plus $30shipping and  $20 duty = $270

         

        The dress is made wonderfully,  it has boning and bra cups sewn in!

         

        Very impresssed and happy!

                  Hello ladies,

                  did anyone of you try judysbridal.com? I'm about to order a dress but I cant find a single review about them! which is wired.. they have real pictures of the dresses they've tailored on their website. I really like the quality of what I see but I'm very worried. they quoted me 520$ for
                  san patrick arona http://www.bestbrida...arge/Arona.html my dream dress undefined

                  I alos was looking at ieieshop.com and aubridal.com both quoted me less, about 200$, but not as the quality of judy's bridal.

                   

                  or play safe, pay some extra bucks and go for jasmine's bridal shop?
                   

                   

                  tell me what do you think?
