Definitely good to know!! I was worried about it too. I tried SO hard to explain it to my fiance...no luck haha! Glad to see it didn't matter a bit!

    Soliciting your opinions please...I have my dress fitting this Saturday and I'm trying to figure out what I want to do with my sash.  It full of beads and crystals and very similar to what is shown in the pics but the embellishment will wrap all the way around my body and I want it sewn directly onto the dress so it doesn't shift.  Up until last night, I assumed it would be sewn around the natural waist, but after seeing a recent pic of a mermaid dress with embellishment at the empire waist (Kenneth Pool Romantic), I'm wondering what will look best.   I played around a bit, but I'm torn...Help?!?!

      Did you see the pic of my belt on my San Patrick Rivoli? I seriously thought this was my dress! I planned on doing my natural waist but my friend and I decided a little lower was more flattering. I'd be happy to text you pics of both on my dress if you want a comparison!

      I vote natural waist! It'll cinch in the right spots and make you look even awesomer (yes I know that's not a word)! They both are beautiful though, so you can't really go wrong.

          Hi Ladies. I was just wondering if any of you had any feedback on selling your dress? Have any of you done it and was it easy/successful/used preowned wedding dress website to sell it?  I just got back from my first time trying my dress on. Ordered it back in August, sort of under pressure...and now that it is in there are so many issues Im just afraid i made a big mistake. It is HUGE...about three whole sizes too big, plus I am 5'4 and it is made for about 5'8....because it is made so big everything else is bigger too so the train seems out of control and the tulle under the skirt is massive because most of it is being poofed out from four inches of it sitting on the ground. I dont know...it just was not a good visit at all. Even though it is a nice designer dress I just dont know if all of it can be worked out and I am thinking about trying to sell it and just buying something off the rack. I have no idea. I feel so down about it after waiting all this time and spending the money on it when i probably should have just gone with my gut and got something cheaper...but anyways, just wondering if anyone has had good luck with selling because I really don't want to waste money.

            I have actually flipped/sold a few wedding dresses (long story) but preownedweddingdresses.com is the best site, with oncewed.com and recycledbride.com as good alternates.  But something to keep in mind is that the site won’t dictate the sale as much as the dress itself…overall poularity, style, size color etc.  I was able to sell one dress in 10 days while another took 4 months.  Also, keep in mind that everyone on these sites is trying to sell a dress.   Of course every seller wants to get the most that they can but coming up with right asking is really important.   Good luck.

                Thank you for your reply. It helps out a lot! Since I only have less than three months I guess I better make my decision here soon!
