AW Dress arrived!

Whoo! My dress arrived! I'll take pics once I figure out how to use these dumb rechargeable batteries FI insists upon... and the best part is that it requires minimal tailoring, just the bust is way too big... or I'm too small haha.


Julius Bridal far exceeded my expectations regarding craftsmanship and material quality... they're amazing. And the service and price are definitely right... I'm going to write my pw review soon :)


I need to thank two persons for helping me in the quest for a dress since it was the most challenging part of the whole planning for me because of health reasons and being stranded in the middle of nowhere with the military until a month ago - MarinBride and ChicBride, you two are the best-est ever. Whoa, that felt like an Academy Awards speech, just kidding.

Yay, finally got new batteries from my car while the dog went for evening walk! Okay so bad camera skills (I had to time it...) you can see my undergarments peeking out (obviously the bust is way too big, its falling off) and my bathtub (haha sorry, bad scenery) but here's the dress:


Yay finally got new photo 70943-1


The lace is really soft and its a lot nicer than I expected, the seams are really clean and the lace was cut and finished perfectly to respect the pattern (no flowers lopped in half) - Yay Julius Bridal!

Thanks Chic, really you found it for me! The satin underneath looks really shiny because of the bad photo but its really not like that, its just a soft sheen.


 


Pinky & knicksknack, it was a realllllly long search. I was such a procrastinator, I never really had a "oh have to have it" moment with any of the dresses I looked at but I'm really happy with this one, esp since not a single thing bugs me about it! And I think it compliments our site/wedding feel which sounds kind of strange!


 


WM - its not based on any dress in particular but I was particular persuaded to go with it because it has the exact same outline and shape as this famous dress, purely by accident, I realized it after I ordered it except I think my train is a little longer:



Thanks Chic really you photo 70952-1Thanks Chic really you photo 70952-2


Do you ladies think I should put a mermaid crinoline underneath? The front angle photo didn't turn out very well, you can't really tell its a mermaid and my hips were wider than where the fabric hit the floor... so maybe it needs more form??

Ooh, Champ, I'm so excited for you!  What a pretty dress, and it's so great that you found a bargain - and even without your head in the picture, you already look better than Jenna!

Champ it is awesome! What a beautiful dress! I'm not sure if you need crinoline... hell I'm not sure if my dress needs crinoline! But either way I think it looks beautiful without it.

You guys are so sweet! I don't really like the front angle though because it looks like a sheath from the front, like it makes my hips look bigger than they are... maybe if I get it brought up a little so its not touching the ground it will not look like that? I'm going to think about what chica said about having a mini crinoline sewn into the dress so it shapes it without being toooo poofy! Now I need to find a tailor, oof.

Oh gosh, it's gorgeous!!!  I'm so happy for you!!!!!!  (and I LOOOOVE Jenna's dress *drool*)


I don't think it needs a crinoline at ALL.. .I think it falls perfectly just as it is!
