Side note, so sad.. Late last night I was up way past my bedtime working on an awesome Thread with these pics but telling the whole sappy story about buying my dress, and apparently it took me too long and I was auto-logged out from the forum, when I went to post the thread I had to sign back in and instead of bringing me back to the same spot, my stupid computer would only show me a blank page. The whole pretty thing was lost Note to self: When working on a long post, high-lite and click "COPY" as you work! That way you won't lose your info when the computer acts up!

      Cool things:
      ~The dress was in mint condition even after being on the floor. I don't think it had ever even been tried on. Still had that New look! They did offer to order me a brand new one, but it fit so perfect (other than length, need to hem!) that I didn't want to wait 12 weeks for the same dress to show up.
      ~Since I "registered" with the DB booth at the wedding show, they gave me a $50 off coupon to use at the store, then since they are having the big sale right now, the dress that was regularly $399.00 was marked down to $349.00, with the coupon I had it was only $299.00! Killer deal!
      ~Since I decided to buy the bra and veil at the same time as the dress I got a 10% discount off those, too. Every little bit counts!
      ~All the employees were very friendly and helpful, and altho they were very busy I didn't feel like I was rushed or shoved aside.

      I am going to have it hemmed and bustled, for me the train piece is a little too long for my taste but I just loved the dress. I'm also going to have a tiny little bit of cinching at the bust on the cuff, to add the illusion of a little sweetheart line, so much more flattering on me than the straight cuff.
