Dress Shopping is no longer FUN!
Posted 09 September 2009 - 10:03 PM
I did find a dress I thought was really pretty on the internet & definitely in my price range BUT it is a new dress & every store I have called does not have it in yet. One store told me that they may not have it until the new year which is too late to try and order a dress (just to be on the safe side) and I won't dare buy a dress without trying it on. Oh well...I'll just continue my serach.

However, I do agree that you should go in with an open mind and try on everything that strikes your fancy- heck, even dresses in which you don't think is your style. You never know. And finding what you DON'T like is just as helpful as finding what you do. It narrows it down. Good luck. I'm pretty confident you will find a dress you love.

I thought I had found the dress, but it turns out I was only thinking that because everyone else loved the dress. When I put it on though, I didn't "feel" a connection to it. Maybe that's crazy...but I hope you guys agree with me. I thought you are supposed to put the dress on and feel special in it & all that jazz. This is just not the dress that I have envisioned my whole life....actually so far no dress has done that! Anyways besides needing to vent, I wanted to get some opinions. First off, has anyone had their wedding dress made for them? I know a lady that does it and she probably wouldn't charge too much, so I'm kind of leaning towards that. Secondly, I was curious if anyone knew dresses that are similar to Alvina Valenta or Paloma Blanca BUT for cheaper? I am in love with the slim, trumpet shape dresses and I want a strapless sweetheart neckline, but unfortunately those dresses are not in my price range. Any help is appreciated.
I found a dress online and I took it to a seamstress and she gave me a price that blew my mind. The dress retails for $500 and she is making it for $210 material included. God love her she works for a fabric shop and got my material for her employee cost. I am also have things changed on the dress to suit my body better. Just give you an idea I'll post the picture and explain the changes. Photo
I have had the top changed to halter to hold the twins better... I just need the support. Having it made it is your dress and you can take things about certian dresses and add on or take away.
I hope it works out for you... I'll keep you updated as to my dress progress.

I feel you!! I tried on so many dresses. Eventually, I found one. I bought Casablanca #1900. I had them make changes to it to suit me, shorter train, lighter fabric. Some designers allow changes. Something to keep in mind. Good luck!!
