Mine still needs to be altered but I won't do those till May! Funny that they both came in at the same time and we tried them on the same day! It's a Maggie Sottero...the Zuri Dress!
      thanks babe, you look amazing!! i LOVE the top b/c it gives such a great shape, but it's still soft and flowy :)

        I'm so excited... I got my wedding dress this past weekend!! I honestly thought that it was going to take months of searching but I found a dress I love my first weekend looking! I still need get alterations because it's a little long and I want to shorten the train. I want to use the excess lace to add cap sleeves and a key hole back... the last picture gives an example of this.

        Here it is on the model:

        I think it's soooo much prettier in person though... you can't see how it sparkles in this picture

        On me:

        The back:

        What I want to add from the excess lace of the train:

        I'm so happy! I love my dress! I wish you could see how the detail on the bust area and then around the bottom of the dress really sparkles... I think it will be so pretty on the beach... I hope! And if you all knew me you would know how amazing it is that I found and settled on a dress in just ONE weekend... seriously, my senior year of high school I went shopping with my friends almost every weekend for about 5 months looking for a prom dress!

            Thank you Sheri! It's Sophia Tolli- Lara... turns out Sophia Tolli was the head designer for Maggie Sottero for ten years. It's a few years old. I got it in the outlet section! And I was so afraid that I was going to fall in love with a $5,000 dress! I also love it because it's a corset and sucks in all those areas I don't like!

              ohhh very pretty! I like the idea of putting the lace as a keyhole back with cap sleeves. so are you going to cut the entire train off?

                I don't know! I can't decide... I just know I don't want it as long as it is. I don't mind a little train but I just don't know if I even want one at all. I will have to think about it!

                  omg I love this thread and I'm not really sure why I never visited it before. Dress shopping has been my favorite part of the whole wedding planning process. Everybody's dresses look absolutely amazing!

                  So! My dress... I actually bought it in November 2008, it came in May 2009. I've clocked about 3 or 4 hours in my dress total so far, because I love going to visit it and try it on. I have yet to get it altered and have it in my hands for good and it's driving me insane.

                  It's a "Kirstie Kelly for Disney Fairytale Weddings"

                  I only have one picture of me actually in the dress and it's pretty bad quality because we had to sneak a picture with a phone. Can't wait to have it, and I'll definitely repost a picture of me in it.

                    I just got married on Feb 21st in Punta Cana. I got my dress from lightinthebox.com (China). i loved it-it fit like a glove and i wasnt worred about it gettting wrecked at my TTD bc I didnt pay much

                    I paid $120 incl shipping-I chose a long bridesmaid dress but in ivory. It was their own design but they also do knockoff versions of so many dresses and will custom make any dress if you have some photos...although I think its probably the safest to choose from the designer dresses they offer to make on their site. you can pay $20 more to have the dress custom sized.


                    Hope this helps and good luck!
