            carrierae, first off, thank you for your service and sacrifice for our country.  Secondly, it sounds like the salespeople went above and beyond for you and that is so nice to hear.  Not always do you hear that these days so that was a happy event to read!

My fiance and I planned our wedding this Aug in Jamaica. I was told two weeks ago, I am leaving for Africa for a 6 month deployment. Oh the emotions I was going through....at first, it was unsure I would be able to come back to attend my own wedding. Well luckily for us, they granted me 9 days of leave to get  back. Now a bigger concern....my dress. I ordered a David Tutera dress (the "molly"), which I was in love with that was not coming in until July. When I tried it on, I surpised the store owner by not needing a single bit of alterations, but I didn't bother to measure myself....especially since I could try on the dress. Now I don't know if I have gained or lost 5 lbs since then! I was able to contact David Tutera and let me tell you....they rock! They were able to get me my dress (without paying any extra fees), in less than two weeks! It is ready for me to pick up!!!! yay! I'm going to go in on Tuesday and try it on. I'm also going to measure myself so I know what my size is. No time for alterations. Definitely check out their dresses, they bent over backwards to send in a sample for me to TRY on before I ordered it (back in Jan) and now they are helping again by taking one more stressful event out of the equation. His company is amazing!

             

            PS- I will post pics from Tuesday's dress fitting!

                This one, hands down. It's much more current and modern, and young-looking. The other one looks a bit dated :(

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

                  It's a knock-off of an $8500 Amsale dress:

                   







                  The first dress is pretty, but the second one is a stunner!  Who's the designer?




                   

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

                    Actually it is not a knock of of this dress...the bottom is nothing like it...I will get the designers name next week.

                      I'm going to play devil's advocate here...sorry lol.

                       

                      I like this one better on you - they are both beautiful gowns but I think this one is very flattering on you!
