    did you try oncewed.com? lots of brides on there didn't even wear their dresses - they just changed their mind. even a larger size could be altered. may be worth the cost just to try it, and then you can always sell it again if it doesn't work out. but I bet that when you go shopping, the consultants can pull similar dresses to see if you like the style on. : ) good luck!

        Try on similar styles.  What they look like in magazines and online on the models is not always what you find when you try them on.  I planned on avoiding anything form-fitting like mermaid/trumpet/fit-and-flare but found that they look the most flattering on me.  You never know until you try them on which will be the one.  Good luck!

            sure! I love it because it may not be that something was ever worn (or even altered), and you could save a lot of $$. : ) good luck on the hunt! your dress is out there. : )

I went in for my 1st appt and saw the 2nd dress on a mannequin..I had to try it on and fell in love. After a few months of fighting with my mom and family...I went with what I wanted and now I'm wearing the 2nd dress..1st one is now for sale if anyone loves it : ) The 2nd one is way to big in these pics : )



              I love this dress!  I am wearing a WToo dress as well!
               


               

              Yaay! Which one?  Maybe I know already, but right now I can't think of another WToo bride here (I'm a Dulconee girl)

                I'm not sure of her name..I know it is a private label designer. I asked at my last fitting but I forgot to write it down. I'll ask next time I go for a fitting in a few weeks and get back to you

                  Thank you ladies for the support in my quest of finding "the one" and lesee - so sweet of you to post those links for me, I will definitely check them out!  I know someone also asked who the designer is, Marchesa...  I took the liberty of asking them myself, just to make sure the bridal shop wasn't  completely sure.  We'll see if they answer!

                      Hey everyone!! I am thinking of buying this Maggie Sottero Destination dress(rd1086)! I LOVE it!!!! But there is another dress by  Alfred Angelo that I also adore! They are 2 different dresses...I'd love to have anyone's opinion about which one I should chose! My family hasn't been much help with deciding because they love them both too!! lol
