    The dress I liked was the sottero and midgley ssm5161

    And well if when it arrives before the end of this month and I don't like it, then I will use it for the TTD and will order the original. I am saving a ton of money this way(only $144US) through Monica Bridal and every penny counts so hopefully I LOVE the one I am having made but if not oh well I will order the original and sell it after the wedding to recoup some funds lol

        Lisa, I'm thinking of ordering from Monica Bridal as well after reading about your and Bonnie's experience with her. I just have to get out and try some dresses on so I know what style I want. I'm excited to see how you dress will turn out!


        Congrats Futuredawson!!


        I think I am done with my STDs and might order them from Vistaprint today. Now if I could only get my FI to collect all the addresses from his family...hmm....

          Congrats on getting the STD's done! Make sure you post a pic. I got lucky with my FI's family addresses cause just before we got engaged they planned a 40th for his parents and had a list of all the guests invited and their addresses. It was beautiful!

          I must of tried on 1000 dresses and finally picked the one i liked and them changed a couple of things so i am excited to see how it will turn out too! Sept 27th is the latest it should be here so when I find someone to help me lace up that corset I will post pics for sure. Still need to lose weight though so it will have to be altered as i gave them my measurements now but in 8months from now I am hoping to be about 40pounds lighter!

            Such a pretty dress lisadias!  I've never heard of monica bridal before...I'm going to have to check it out!  I just got my dress-but I was looking for something for our at home reception without having to break the bank!

              I found them on DHgate.com. It is like a chinese ebay! Here is the link to my dress so that you can find the seller as their name on their is wywedding.



              There is a thread on knock off dresses which is where i heard about them. Check it out and you can see and hear reviews from different vendors. Gianinar from Ebay seems popular and Monica Bridal. My bridesmaids dresses are probably only going to cost 70$ each which is a steal. I am waiting to get my dress back first and then will order theirs from the same vendor as the communication was so good. As long as i received all that i was promised and i like the quality then I will be ordering more from them.

                Do you know about how long it takes?  The wedding is in less than 2 months-and we will only be back 1 day before the at home reception...so it's kind of a time crunch!
