    And after reading through the rest of the posts it looks like you picked #1! lol

    Again, both were great choices.  I was looking at Maggie's desintation dresses before I ended up choosing something completely different! lol 

    I ended up with a Mori Lee mermaid style.

     

    Both dresses looked great on you!

      It's funny how things work themselves out when things that are meant to be are jeopardized ;o)

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!

        Altered from a size 12 down to a size 2!!!!!
        I love the final product! I was extremely worried that it would be too significant of an alteration and that the final product would look weird...but it looks perfect! It looks as if it were always a size 2!!

        (In the photo's, it's a bit loose at the top...I didn't have it strapped tightly. I was just trying it to see if my heels were too low for my dress...so it was a quick on and off) But when it's strapped tightly, it's barely breathable!!...just how I like it!
