    Thankyou so so much for the kind comments! They mean a lot, especially as I can't show my bridesmaid (she just got engaged a few days ago so don't want to steal her "moment"!) or Mum (away until weds) so its lovely to have feedback and encouragement :)

     

    It is so well constructed. 12 bones. Five layers -  lace on tulle,  soft tulle,  thick satin, hard net and a soft silky inner skirt to keep the hard net from touching my legs.

     

    Anyone considering ordering from DressilyMe...DO IT! The sooner you order the less time you have to wait for it to arrive haha.

     

    It is a little long which is strange as I am 6ft tall and had planned to wear flat shoes but maybe I'll just have to wear heels now. A hoop might help a bit too :)

     

    Ooh yes, the colour is perfect. Normal bridal shop Ivory, not cream, not white, not yellowy or alabaster or oyster just a nice slightly creamy ivory. Thankyou for your guidance on that!

     

    Heres 2 more pics , the bodice (on the floor and not a great angle, sorry) and the lace edge of the skirt.

        This looks amazing Suffolk bride! I love how they pay attention to details. Definitely cant expect it to be the same as the original, but like you said you did some changes too and considering paying only a fraction of the price compared to the original dress. I cant wait to see the pictures of you in the dress

          I did it! I finally ordered my dress from BabyOnline. Sunny has been so great to work with and very responsive. I washing to order the Inbal dress but after trying on a similar dress - it's not the right style for me... I need more support in the front due to having a large chest. I found a Pnina custom dress I LOVED so I'm jumping the gun and ordering it. Posted Image Posted Image What do you think?!?! I'm actually really excited. Instead of pinks I requested shades of ivory & creams.

              What do I think? I think you have fantastic taste in dresses!!! Really beautiful, please post pics when you get it! It looks so "organic" somehow with the really soft looking skirt just melting into the dress. Congrats on taking the plunge ;)

               

              I tried on my dressilyme dress properly with my mum this afternoon and I'm in love with it :) Will post pics later (probably tomorrow now), can't tonight as H2B is next to me.

                Hmm I love it. But it's by Mark Zinnio, not Pnina...sorry I'm a Tamra fan lol. It is a beautiful dress. I'm excited to see how it turns out!!!

                  Ok, here are some pics of my DressilyMe dress on!

                   

                   

                   

                   

                   

                   

                   

                  I have a 2 hoop fishtail petticoat on underneath, think I'll make the hoops a teeny bit smaller when I have the dress shortened. The veil isn't the one I will be wearing.

                   

                  Please excuse the sheet I'm standing on to keep the dress clean and the various wedding packaging strewn about the place! Mum had to take the pics from the patio hence the strange photos of the door and net curtains, sorry they aren't the best.

                    PS I'd love feedback on what you think of using the straps and belt, neither, both or either!
