Dress is FINISHED!!!!! :-D VERY pic heavy

Just received photos of my finished dress and veil, and I'm soooo glad it's finally done!! I can't wait to receive it!


There are a couple of issues that aren't EXACTLY as I asked, but I love it overall, so I'm past caring about little details! My dress is a 100% original anyway, so I have nothing to compare it to or complain about!:


1) the veil looks as though it only has one layer, when I asked for 2, and it's a little longer than I wanted. A little bit annoyed about this, especially as the veil I wanted was very simple, and they even made it twice, so can't believe they got it wrong. It's very hard to tell on the photos as there are no close ups of the veil, so I've asked about it


2) I asked for lace on the train only, and they've put it all the way around the bottom. But it does look lovely, so hey-ho!


3) I'm pretty sure they didn't put my crinoline under it for the photos - I hope not anyway, since it doesn't look anywhere near full enough


Overall though, I'm happy for now - the beading is absolutely stunning, and I can't wait to receive it!! Here goes...

The corset/bodice of this gown looks impeccable! I can't tell about the layers of the veil, but it is stunning, and if it doesn't have the second layer you can buy a detachable blusher and use it as the second layer. They come on velcro and you can use it as the double layer or an actual blusher if you want.

It's a very pretty dress. I think the lace looks lovely and it probably made more sense to bring all the way around the bottom of the dress because it would be hard to find a point to just stop the lace and only have it on the train. does that make sense?


I hope when it arrives the quality is as good as the photos. fingers crossed they send you a gorgeous well made dress that you love. How long before they ship? Is it completely ready?

Very pretty! I'm glad it worked out despite the bumps and the changes they made to the design!

2010bride - yes I know exactly what you mean about the lace. This did cross my mind when I designed it, but I just figured they would work something out! I love the lace anyway, so no big deal!


Yes, as far as I know it's completely finished, and they asked for my address and phone number, so I guess they're sending it out! Just hoping they can fix the veil!

I've seen the post hours ago & I couldn't write anything!!!


I just kept staring at the photos...


WOW!!


Hope you get it asap as we all want photos of you in it :))


BTW, I really really love that lace layer, I don't know, maybe it's just me but it looks more princessy..


As for the veil, I remember that you wanted to have a beaded edge not a plain one, or did you change your mind?


I love the overall look & can't wait to see it & tou review when you get it :)

Thank you everyone!!


Bella confirmed that the veil DOES have 2 layers, so that's good. And on the bigger pictures that I have I'm pretty certain there is beading on the edges of the veil - it is hard to tell, but I'm fairly certain they beaded it. They seemed clear on that aspect of it.


And guess what? They shipped the dresses today!!! Unfortunately I'm having to get them sent to my parents' house, as I have no room for them and don't want my fiance to see, so I won't get to try it on straight away! I don't get over to my parents' house as much as I'd like. I'm going to try and go next weekend though to try it on, so I'll be sure to take photos!!

Bella emailed me saying that when quality control checked the dress before posting it, they found that the corset was a slightly different shape when laced up than my inspiration pics. She said it was supposed to be square, but it actually goes in a bit at the bottom... I wasn't even aware that I'd asked for it to be square, and I really couldn't tell any difference!! So I really don't care about it... I just said that I wanted quite a wide lace-up, not the long thin ones that go down into a point (if you get what I mean). And they did this, so I'm happy. I told her not to worry and to send it out right away!! YAY!


And the photos were taken without my crinoline, so I'm happy about that!

Am so glad you've finally got your dress, it looks beautiful and if it's anything like mine you'll be so surprised at the quality. Here's to all Milly Brides getting a great outcome and feeling super special on their wedding day. x

My mum says the quality is really good - apparently it looks as good as anything in a bridal shop, and the corset is really thick and fully-boned. Also, there are about 6 layers in the skirt! And she says the beading is beautiful!


I can't believe I can finally try it on tomorrow!!! The suspense is killing me! Unfortunately neither of my bridesmaids can try theirs on yet, so I think I'll have to try theirs as well! We're all a fairly similar size.


The only think I'm worried about is the lengths. One of my bridesmaids is quite tall and my mum didn't think her dress looked quite long enough. And if the length of mine is wrong, I'm screwed, because of the lace at the bottom!!


The veil IS beaded, but is ridiculously long... it goes half way across my bedroom when hung from the ceiling!! We're going to try and unpick it from the comb, cut it down, and sew it back on. Hopefully that won't be too difficult. And it DOES have 2 layers.


Sorry to be rambling, I'm just soooo excited!! Picking up the bouquets and buttonholes tomorrow too!!
