    It took a total of three shopping trips to find the dress. I had no idea what I wanted...so I tried a little bit of everything. I have posted the pictures of my dress below. I tried this dress on the first day at Demetrios, but thought it was too expensive. At first, everyone that saw the dress said...it looks great...but what about the hem...it looks like mini blinds...it looks like a fan. In fact, for the rest of the dress shopping trips everyone referred to it as "the fan dress."

    But, as soon as we got home and took a look at the pictures, it was clear that the fan dress stood out. In fact, everyone who saw the pictures of the dresses i tried on picted the fan dress! Plus, since we are getting married in mexico, the fan hem seems to fit!

    I was absolutely thrilled when I found out that I could order the dress online. After doing tons of research, I found that www.netbrides.com had just about the best reputation. Another bride on the forum ordered her dress there, she was happy, and it arrived early! I requested a quote and it was $525 LESS then Demetrios!!! I was nervous at first, but after a ton of email exchanges I found out that they gurantee the dress, the size and the color. They also guarantee an outside delivery date. Finally, since the dress needed a hollow to hem alteration which can ONLY be done by the manufacturer, and I found out that they will guarantee that too I was sold.
