Even those dresses (maybe 2-3) that actually looked good on me and I was so close to buy one of them, it just didnt feel right to make the final decision...
    and then there is the other sort of girls who just step into that one dress and fall in love...
    good luck for you, let us know what you decide..
    Thanks so much....it's good to hear that I'm not the only one struggling to get that feeling about a dress! My sis-in-law and I are probably going to head out this weekend to another shop....bless her, she's been so patient with me throughout all this! I'll keep you posted on how it goes!

                Missgomes... Me too! The back is sooo sexy!
                Barbiegirl..... If you are afraid the dress makes you look wide, maybe you can have the sash altered to your natural waist. Right now it looks to be between your waist and hips... that will make the best of us look wide (btw you look gorgeous whatever you think!). I know I like the dividers (sashes, seams, decor) at my natural waist and not at the empire (makes me look pregnant) or the hips (makes me look wide). Hope this helps!
                JamK32179.. Just hit my 30 day too! Came on here to post it right after midnight. We're only a day behind, it'll be interesting to see when ours comes in. Super excited for anyone waiting.

                  barbiegirl, the dress looks lovely....

                  Ladies, a quick question for you all, today I found online the Disney Brides Red Label line for plus size.... does anybody know which international companies make these style dresses as I cannot afford the $3000 price tags.... I saw Buyer 100 and Store of Dress - have any of you had experince with either of these 2 compnaies?

                  Thanks
                  Tori

                    I'm going to start looking but won't do anything with this dress until I know for sure what to do.
                    I think that it looks stunning! The ribbon suggestion is a good one though that could change the look of the dress. Regardless, if you decide on an other dress, you could always sell this one - I'm sure that it would sell fast!

                      My proof pics are here!!!! Ok, I have to admit, if this weren't my TTD, I would be disappointed. I originally tried on for the wedding Maggie Sottero 'Reese'. I ended up falling in love with a different dress, so I thought I would have this one made for TTD. The beading on the original is gorgeous- but I guess that is also why the original was $900----

                      I emailed gianini to tell them the obvious imperfections of this one (back is uneven, I'm guessing it's just not finished yet- detail on front left is not the same as front right- detail down the front is a little crooked) So I'm excited to see what it looks like in person- and on me!
