My Milly TTD gown

Long-time lurker here posting my Milly dress after very minimal alterations to the bust. Please ignore the mess in the background-I was in the process of unpacking moving boxes when the pics were taken. The bow was haphazardly tied by my fiance- but you get the idea:)


The dress is beautiful and perfect for TTD. I will say it took MUCH longer to receive than I originally anticipated (ordered in early March, received in July) and it was not a custom dress- just a selection from their website inventory in a standard size. Additionally, they sent it to my billing address which is about 4 hours away from my new place- had to contend with DHL for about a week to get it re-routed. It was a hassle but worth it in the long run. I only emailed them three or four times to make sure everything was on schedule; they usually replied within a day or two. I did have to threaten to cancel before they promised they would send it by my absolute deadline of July 15.


My alterations lady was really impressed with it; she works within a bridal salon and sees lots of beautiful gowns. The quality is not the same as my La Sposa Fanal wedding gown, but I think it will photograph beautifully (TTD on the beach and in the water). Pics coming up... Thanks!

Wow, that dress is gorgeous!!  I am considering Milly for my TTD as well, but was kind of scared after everything I have read on this board.

Oh WOW that's gorgeous!! It looks great on you!


My alterations lady did one of the bridesmaids' dresses for me and she said the same thing, that it was beautiful and really good quality. She said she'd had LOADS of brides bringing in dresses they'd bought from other sellers in China that were totally unwearable, and really really bad quality. She said most of them were beyond rescue and that I'd been really lucky!


Glad it worked out for you in the end!

Your dress is gorgeous! I LOVE it. I definitely think I'm purchasing my TTD from there and my rehearsal dinner dress!
