    My dress just came in and I am totally stoked. I ordered it 2 weeks ago and they told me it would be here in 15 weeks. But it's in! And it's more awesome than I remembered.

    Only thing is that I went to pick it up along with the veil and ribbon and stupid David's Bridal took the veil and ribbon order as "take away". Meaning they carry the veil and ribbon in the store and should have given it to me up front. Unfortunately, they don't carry either of them in the store. The extremely rude sales girl told me I already had them and I should check at home. So I asked her to show me the veil and ribbon since they carry them in the store and the sales girl said, "We don't carry those items in the store. We will have to order them". Yes, they really are that dumb there. If this dress wasn't so perfect for me and I hadn't shopped in tons of stores in Scottsdale and Texas, I would have cancelled the whole order and gone elsewhere.

    Anyways, my FMIL found the veil stuffed in the dress bag and I cancelled the ribbon order. I'll just make my own sash. I bought my slip on ebay for $20 and still looking for a headband and shoes. Although, I found some orange Jimmy Choos that maybe I can convince FI to buy me...LOL.

    I can't post pictures while I'm at work so I'll include the DB link. I'm going to lace the back up with a persimmon sash and probably add some flavors of orange beading to the train. The girl in the pic must be 7 feet tall and a size 0 because this dress doesn't even look the same on me (I'm 5'4" and size 6). But I love it! Enjoy :)

                    YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL, AUTJO!!! And so happy to be in the dress of your dreams...plus, I love the touch of orange that you're adding to make it uniquely your own!

                    Sorry to hear that your local DB has a bunch of boneheads working there -- my experience at the York, Pa store was seamless and went off without a hitch!

                    Oh, and I adore the orange flip-flops -- such a fun & "beachy" touch!
