    Brides, FYI as Priscilla of Boston is closing their doors on all locations.  Great sales I am sure but if you have ordered a Priscilla of Boston gown, then I would recommend calling the store as they close on 12/31/11.  http://www.priscilla...n.com/index.jsp

      I love it, too! (Looks similar to my dress).

       

      If the dress is indeed Priscilla of Boston and your cousin can't find it before they close, a dress maker could always replicate it. Bridal Bargains by Alan and Denise Fields (aka, my wedding planning bible) recommended hiring a fashion student to re-create a specific wedding dress look. It's great experience for the student, and will most likely cost less than buying the manufactured dress or having a professional dress maker re-create it.

        I posted back in Feb when I found my dress, but it came in a month ago (Maggie Sottero, Caprice) so I thought I would share pics since it is in my size (and not all clipped up).  I love it!!

              You look HOT! Check out the hourglass figure! Your waist just looks so tiny. Great pick! (I realy loved the Maggie Sotteros).

                Thanks all!  I had to SQUEEZE into my dress, so I am a little nervous about gaining weight in the next 6 months!  There is NO room to spare in it.  I guess if things get bad though I can always let it out a bit when I get alterations- hopefully it won't come to that though:)

                ... I need hemming and the long strap in the back needs shortening.  I also think I am going to change the neckline to a sweetheart (to look like Maggie's Billie dress- see below) ASM3387.jpg

                    Thanks!  The two dresses ae almost identical but the Billie dress (sotero and midgley) is a heavy satin and a much fuller bottom.  But I LOVED the neckline compared to my own.  Hopefully alterations will get my dress exactly how I want it!
