    I have to order my dress but I am super nervous --- stupid but true, and to make it worse, everyday I put off ordering it I am making things worse since it takes 4 months to get in and the wedding is 5.5 months away...argh...maybe tammy can withhold my forum viewing priviledges until I order it. lol. I think I am going to order it through Pearls Place online since the only bridal shops here who can get it are super new. Anyone order from Pearls Place? My friends have ordered from them and loved the results. Oooh and here is the picture of the dress, its on another thread but to reiterate it a million times cuz I personally look at it like 5 times a day....

            Wow... that is absolutely gorgeous and you are going to look super hot in it!!

            Definitely order it now. I fell in love with a Watters dress, but the fastest it could get to me was ten weeks, and at that point I only had 8 weeks left. Even though I love the dress I have now, I still secretly pine for that Watters dress. Don't be like me!!!

            Order it now before it's too late!! You can always get alterations to take it in right? I would say, order it in one size smaller and work your ass off to fit into it. A little motivator. But I don't know if that's good advice, because I know it's easier to take in a dress than let it out (so I've read!).

            Actually I think you should order it today. Do it! Do it! Do it!

            Toby you are not fat and please take it from me, who had huge visions of losing all this weight-it didn't happen...I am less than three months away and have only lost a little bit. Order the size you think you need and they can always take it in.

              Yeah, luckily my friend's mom is a seamstress and she is doing the alterations and my friend is upfront and to the point, she even said last night, "Toby, you are ordering the dress that is your size right now and I don't care if it ends up being a size 30, you are ordering the correct size" lol...she will strap me down with the tape measure if she has too...lmao

                  That's beautiful! Have you ever tried it on? If not, you are brave! I could never buy something without trying it on...I don't ever buy clothes online or from a catalog. I am a freak that way.

                  It's beautiful! Do it!
