      Thanks everyone for your kind words! It really helps to have an unbiased opinion - you never know if your friends are telling you what they think you want to hear; some of them were supportive of some pretty awful dresses :)

       

      dallace - I'm getting married in Mexico in August, so I'll be melting right along with you. I think I'm going to get some of the skirt taken out and the front is pretty flowy, so I'm hoping I'll be able to get some ventilation going. Anyone have any tips to keep the sweat to a "glow"? I guess my boyfriend will be the main one doing the sweating anyway :)

       

      MJKH - That's probably a great idea to buy a second more simple, flowy dress and take some pictures in it to satisfy my need for something simple.

       

      MissBubbles205 - I actually bought it in a trunk show last year before it was available so it was really reasonably priced. On their website http://www.allurebridals.com/ you can search where to buy though. It's Allure - Exclusive Collection - #2511. Here are some photos so you can get a better look.

       

      Thanks again for your input everyone! Now that I've gotten such positive feedback from you guys I kinda want to go try it on again & get excited about it!

        dallace - I'm getting married in Mexico in August, so I'll be melting along with you! I think I'm going to take some fabric out of the skirt and the front is pretty flowy so I'm hoping I can get some ventilation going. Anyone have any tips for keeping the sweating to a "glow"? I guess my boyfriend will be the one doing most of the sweating anyway.

         

        MJKH - That's a great idea, maybe I'll also buy a second more simple, flowy dress and get some photos in it another day. That should satisfy my need for the more plain dress.

         

        MissBubbles205 - I actually bought it in a trunk sale last year before it was available for wide purchase so I'm not sure where carries it. I know on their website http://www.allurebridals.com/ you can search for stores that carry the label. It's Allure - Exclusive Collection - #2511. I'll include a picture to give you a better idea of what it's like.

         

        Thanks again everyone. Now that I got some positive feedback I kinda want to go try it on again & get excited about it!

        I would guess it should be soon. I ordered min on Oct 29th, and it came in Jan 31st. The waiting is hard!!!

          Wait, dont dresses typically take like 5 months to come in?  I ordered mine a few weeks ago and am not expecting to hear anything from the shop until August.  Am I off in my timing?

            I as well was under the same assumption. I ordered mine at the end of January and was told that it wouldnt be in for 8 months!

            wow, guess I was lucky! I wasn't expecting it until Feb or March...that was the expectation they set when I ordered it. Even Feb was 3 months, and March was only 4...

              Ya I was told up to 8 months. I think they say that just incase it does take that entire 8 months to come. Mine however came in at the 6 month mark. From what  the sales lady told me, once the order goes out thats when they start to make the dress. So no wonder it takes so long.
