Dr_Loza - As Requested, My Milly Dress & Veil

Well, 


Many of you were curious about the dress & the veil I had from Milly.


There's a quick review of them both & I'll add details after my exam on March 7th.


The Dress on their website: 


Well Many of you photo 1444610-1

Well Many of you photo 1444610-10

Well Many of you photo 1444610-12


Excuse the crappy quality photos & the mess in the background :S


 


Better Pics:


Well Many of you photo 1444610-13


Well Many of you photo 1444610-14


Well Many of you photo 1444610-15


Well Many of you photo 1444610-16


Well Many of you photo 1444610-17


I know this is irrelevant but my shoes & accessories :")


Well Many of you photo 1444610-18


The dress & veil quality were the best & the dress fit me perfectly. Their bodice has great boning that I even won't be wearing a bra with it, which I'm not in the photos too.


Tell me what you think everybody.


I ordered on Dec 24th & got it delivered to my home in Egypt by Feb 10th early in the morning, it was actually finished on Jan 29th but I had them alter the beading in the back, so that's why it took them sometime because they had to do the beading like 5 times before I finally was satisfied. They also were going to ship it on Feb 6th but they washed it & wasn't completely dry so They shipped it on Feb 7th.


 


Hope that's enough info for now, more details after March 7th...


Wish me Good luck on the exam :)

It looks great. You are going to be a beautiful bride. The boning is very strong in the Milly dresses. I noticed that right away. I'm very happy for you that your dress turned out so well. The veil is also beautiful.

2010bride2bee, 


1st, Thank you so much for your nice words.


2nd, I remember Nancy saying that she couldn't ship the dress on Feb 6th because it's not "DRY" enough. They use that washable marker pen which they used on my dress to line out the beading areas for me to approve before they started the last round of bead-unbead that they played with me. 


2010bride2bee 1st Thank you photo 1444846-1

So I think they washed it!! I found no marks on it... Just white fabric!!

Wow! I can't believe they washed your gown! Maybe that's what those black lines are underneath the organza of my dress? Do you guys think I should attempt washing it?!

Wow. That's really interesting.


Too bad they didn't think to wash my dress before sending it. Hehe.


Kaytana, do you think it may work for your dress to wash it? I have read conflicting reports of proper care for a wedding dress and have come across some articles claiming that when you send in your dress for preservation, etc. that they actually do toss them in a washing machine and then charge a bundle for it. Not sure if that's true, but makes you wonder.

I think you should ask a professional on this. Try your dry cleaning place, show them the marks & the fabric & ask them if it's safe to wash the dress, or it's safer to dry clean it, or maybe not try at all...

Hmm...I don't want to spend any more extra $$$ on this dress...I think I'll just leave it.


Dr_Loza - out of curiosity, how was your experience with Nancy at Milly Bridal? I originally had her as my contact person but then Annie took over.

She was understanding & co-operative. She also answered my every question.


I actually miss her emails now. She had some funny language issues ;) but I think our communication was mainly through pictures rather than words, My English isn't perfect either :")


She also responded quickly, I sent her a thank you note & I was surprised she answered during their Holiday !!


I remember asking her for beading alterations & an hour later, she sent me the pictures of them!!


And she was accurate about timing too.

Just FYI for the girls: Annie is the one that takes care of ALL custom-design orders. Jessica and nancy take care of non-custom or manufacturer's dresses.


Loza>> your dress and veil look great! It makes me want to have them make a veil for me too! How much did they charge for it (if you don't mind me asking)

Loza your dress looks beautiful! and you got it so fast! I guess since Phannie & I ordered custom dresses then it's taking a lot longer. I'm so happy for you! everything the dress & the veil look perfect!

Dr_Loza (and all),


Hi! Just wanted to say you look beautiful in your gown!  How does the fabric lay?  This is a gown on their site?  I was thinking it may be easier to order what they have, maybe this will lessen my chances of a disaster?  Don't rush getting back to me & good luck on your exam.


Best!

Kissinikki :) Thanks


The fabric quality is Great & it's thick & not shiny, Polyester Satin. They do 2-3 layers of light satin then the main thick one one top. The bodice is boned perfectly & gives my body a nice shape, I have an abdominal fat problem :S


This gown is from their site: it's number 603 & it's a Maggie Sottero Replica of Michelle.


I think you have time to make your dress of choice even if it's not on their site but you just have to be patient.


My advices: If your dress is not from their collection, try to find similar one that they have & use them to explain what you exactly want, like you like this lace on their dress & want it put on yours the same way. You like this neckline & back as their dress & you want yours to have them, etc... That will be much easier for you & them.


Many brides here had their dresses custom made by Milly & they were happy. You have enough time so don't worry.


Good luck
