      I wish I could see the picture, its not there. That is an amazing deal though and totally meant to be. CONGRATS!!! So we are not going to be dress twins then, I was hoping we would. I got the Dress from David's bridal that is apparently a knock off of the Maggie Soterro dress that you liked.

      Edit, I can see the pictures now. Its BEAUTIFUL. Congrats. I can't wait to see it on you.

        I knew it was a $1000+ dress. They said they had it and pulled out the dress. They don’t print the names on the tag, just the item number. It didn't look right to me, and I thought it looked like Tuscana Vidal. I asked her “Are you sure this is Tuscana Royale?” She pulled out the book and looked at the picture and said “Yep, it’s just in a different color- that’s why it looks different.” I wasn’t too sure about it because the dress even had a different material. They were identical except for the material.

        Even with doubts, I took her word for it because she rang it up and marked that I wanted Gold with Gold & Coral Lace. I knew Tuscana Vidal didn’t come in that color. I figured she showed me the wrong dress, but I was Ok with it as long as she ordered me Tuscana Royale.

        On the agreement you sign, they just write the item number and specific instructions (here she wrote the color I wanted.) I signed it thinking- Awesome! Got the dress I love for $300 cheaper. I must have found an outdated price on the internet since this is a Fall 2006 dress.

        I get home and pull out the fabric swatches she gave me for Tuscana Royale and found my receipt that was attached to the order guide. On the receipt it said “Tuscana Vidal in Gold with Gold & Coral Lace.” Through my research I knew this wasn’t a possible combo. Since all sales are final, I freaked a bit. But I knew they had to change something. The dress they ordered ISN’T POSSIBLE.

        I called this morning- yep, they made a mistake. Tuscana Royale is $1100 not $778. They corrected it and ordered me the Tuscana Royale, but gave it to me for the $778 price for their mistake.

        Can you believe that? I saved $300 for their mistake!!! I was stressing about ordering a dress $300 more than my budget, and now I don't even have to worry about it! I'm so excited!
        YAY!!!!! Even better - plus you get your dream dress at a dreamy price!

            Your dress is beautiful though! I took up your advice and went to David's Bridal to see the difference. David's version has a different fabric. Still gorgeous and it was much more light weight! I fell in love with a different dress though. I found the Tuscana Royale knock off of Maggie at David's as well, but I had to buy the Maggie Version instead.

            I'm sure there is another dress twin because Grace Lynette is a beautiful dress!

                    Does anyone still have this gown and are you interested in selling it?  I am looking for one and I have no idea where to get it.
