    Thanks! It wasn't a complete 180. I knew I wanted a mermaid type fit for the dress but all of the dresses I was seeing in magazines that I thought I liked were much simpler. I never expected to end up with a dress with a lot of beading and detail. I actually wasn't that crazy about it when I saw it on the hanger and wasn't hesitant to try it on. But I am so glad that I did and I couldn't be happier now.

    The best advice I can offer anyone is try it on not matter what it looks like on the hanger! Almost every dress looks different once it's on.

      Lolo- Gorgeous dress! I also have a Pronovias with buttons with little elastics down the back. I am not too worried about getting it on (unless I am bloated!) as I will have mom there with a crochet hook. I do, however, worry about FI getting it off and undone later on! Yikes. I just might sleep in it...

        I couldn't agree with your advise more. I wanted a ballgown dress that was simple with no beading. I ended up with a aline gown with a lace overlay that had beading on it. My mum pulled it and I had one of the sales ladies put it back becuase I didn't want to try it on. Another sales lady brought it back into my room so I gave in and tried it on. Thank goodness I did because I love it. And more to it, it was way under budget!

The celebrity wedding planner from "My Fair Wedding" on WE. He just launched his own line of bridal gowns. I had an appointment at Bridal Reflections in NYC and he happened to have a trunk show there that weekend. I got to meet him, he was really nice and very honest which I really appreciated.

              This dress is AMAZING!!! You look stunning! And I'm so jealous you were able to meet David Tutera and get his opinion. I'm so addicted to his show!!

              Congrats!

                      Those dresses are lovely, make sure you try them on though if you haven't already. I looked terrible in chiffon dresses without much structure - so I think it really depends how each particular dress works with your body type. It's so hard to tell from pictures sometimes, I love them both though! Good luck deciding
