Well all 4 dresses have arrived today. Overall I'm quite happy. My main gripe is the fact that there is no net underskirt on my dress, which I was quite shocked at. It only has 2 layers the taffeta and the satin underlayer. Does anyone know if this is normal or should there be that layer? The workmanship is good however I was undecided as to have lace and beading or just lace because I'm not a very sparkly person. Anyway I opted for just lace but seeing the beading detail on the flowergirl dress I whish I had it on mine too. Never mind once the total look is put together I can add a bit of bling with jewellery etc
My flowergirl dress, which is a replica of mine, has 3 layer net underskirt which give it a lot more wieight and structure than my dress. I'm hoping a petticoat with a train will make it better.
As for the bridesmaids dresses, they are absolutely stunning. The quality is great, just as good an any bridal shop.
Overall, taking into account the total cost (which was just under £500 for all) I think it was worth the gamble. I got a dress in a style that would have cost me over £1000 and bridesmaid dresses that would have cost at £150 each so I can't complain. I just hope the petticoat works lol
I will post pics as soon as I can. I'm taking the dresses to be tried on over the weekend so I will take pics of them being worn.
