I know right! I couldn't believe it myself. Please don't encourage me bc it is already in my cart waiting for me to hit the buy button. I am just waiting for a reply. MAN MAN MAN....I just keep looking at both of them.
SweetGaPeach - DO IT!! ORDER BOTH!!!!!
The company I used is called romanticdress or something on eBay. I don't knwo when I'll receive it yet b/c the tracking doesn't work :( I hope to get it really soon though...*crosses fingers*.
ok you guys are boosting me up! LOL!!! i just might hit that buy button....1.........2........3.........I BOUGHT IT! EEK!!!!!!!!
I'm thinking of doing it too. There are two others I like that will come out to be only about $350.00-375.00 with shipping. I'm sure I can easily sell them for what I paid on Ebay, craigslist, etc. if I don't like them.
I think it's a great idea, because you can try them both on and you already know they are not going to be exactly like the Maggie's but atleast you can put them both on and make a decision based on which one actually looks the best on you.
I'm itching to order a 2nd dress cuz i'm really worried about my Milly one...
Thinking about going for one of these 2:
@SweetG: when did you order your first dress? Before they went on vacation?
hey phannie the first one is really awesome love the style! i always heard about they write emails still back at the moment. So i think they take orders in and beginn with the tailoring in the end of february. I have to order a dress for my mother. She likes the linea raffaelli style 113. a dress she never can afford, it cost nearly 2000 dollars!!
I like the 2nd one mostly because the straps made out of lace make me nervous. I don't think I'd trust any of these places to make the straps just right out of lace.
Phannie, no I ordered my first dress on Feb 8. I recieved a message from one of the reps that said the dress would not go into tailoring until Feb 18.
Ok you guys...it's Feb 18! which mean they're BACK in business TOMORROW.
I haven't received any replies from them, but I had sent a message during their New Year break - did you guys hear from them at all during their vacation?
i'm wondering if I should email them again...
Hrmm..oddly, my second choice is not on their site anymore.
Seems like they have some new photos up too...
I heard from them during the break. They answered any questions I had.
I heard from Susan during the beginning part of the break. She replied within a few hours each time I contacted her.
Hrm...well I emailed again today. Hopefully they'll get back to me soon. I had emailed during the beginning part of their break also, but never heard from anyone. We'll see how it goes.
I posted on the other thread but just wanted to let you know that I have never emailed them directly, I have only used their message system through their site after creating an account. Maybe that will make the difference.
Me too 2010bride
Oh gah, I think i'm giving up on them. I've emailed them directly, and I've also sent them a few msges through the site. (I went under "Help" and there was a contact form.)
Still haven't heard from them, so I'll probably just wait for my Milly dress. :-\
That is the strangest thing, I just got a reply today. I don't blame you for giving up, I would too after that many tries.
They've been awesome with their communication with me as well! The first response was a couple of days after the holiday so I did have to wait but I got it and once I got it they've been totally on top of it! I know they have a twitter and facebook page maybe you could try that route?
Phannie, try checking your spam folder. I use gmail and I know at first all their responses and updates were sent to my spam folder. Otherwise, i have no idea what is going on and I personally wouldn't spend any more time trying to track down a merchant to try to make a purchase, but that's just me.
I sent them a message and they got back to me the next day...it was in my spam folder though
