My dress!

I finally received it (yes, I know there's only a month left)! My dress has been a well worth saga, not for the faint of heart, but a risk I was willing to take.... I had my dress custom made - but the custom making process for this new bridal company required a couple of re dos. And as they say, third time's a charm!

I am so pleased with the outcome of the dress! This dress is a compilation of two different dresses that I liked. Here are a few pics:

I have to admit, I felt myself clamming up on the "so you have your dress question," along the way because I just felt people wouldn't understand the, "no, I don't have it yet," and would want to get into a lot of discussion and give me a lot of well intentioned, but stress inducing advice. So, I kept mum. Why risk it at all? Because I paid less than $700 for a truly fabulous custom made to my measurements silk satin dress. And as you must know by now, I will pander to the discount!

But all is well - it's here now! Safe and sound in it's dress bag in my closet (is this proper storage technique), and my alteration appointment to get this baby bustled is Monday.

Things are falling into place!

Your dress is absolutely gorgeous! The ornate work on the bodice is to die for! I just started reading, so I'm not sure if you may have let your readers know, but who made this dress for you at that unbeatable price?!

Classic strapless dress. It'll withstand the test of time.

I had a similar designed dress. The marriage only lasted three years, but details, details.

I was also wondering, where you got the dress made and who the designer of the first one in the group of pictures is.

I love love it!
