Noelle

I believe you said that you found your dress.  Where are the pictures?  Hmpf!

P.S. I like your new avatar.  It is good to see your face.

    Yes, I did indeed find my dress.  It was actually my favorite from looking online.  Give me a minute to track down the pics.

    It has lace, which I really wanted, but it also has a bit of sparkle to it.  It's a short dress, so it's comfortable, but it still looks "bridal" to me, rather than like a BM dress. Love it.

    I LOVE IT!!!! I had wanted to try that dress on when I originally went to DB, but it was out-of-stock. :(

    It looks so pretty on you! :)

    How was your DB experience? I'm always curious because it seems to vary vastly from location to location.

    So far so good.  They were very friendly and helpful.  I just ordered, so we'll see if everything comes in when it's supposed to.  Also, I haven't decided yet if I'm going to use them for alterations.  That's where most of the horror stories come from, so I'm on the fence about it.

    I've also heard that their alterations are on the high side.  I had many more alterations done to my dress, but paid less than half of what MOH paid at DB.  I would see if you can get a recommendation from your local or check out yelp.

    I knew some girls who'd had their alterations at the local DB and were happy, so I called around to check prices. DB actually gave me the lowest quote, so I went ahead, and it turned out beautifully.

    But, it doesn't look like you need a lot of alterations? Maybe you can take it to a regular tailor since it's not a poofy traditional bridal gown?

    We'll see.  I ordered a size up because the one I have on is a tad too tight across the boob-ular region.  So I it will definitely need taking in around the waist. But I'm hoping that won't be too expensive.  It's hard to tell with all that lace, though.

    I love it Noelle!

    Definitely look into the alterations department of your DB. I have seen two people I know go through hell with our local DB. They are all different but I would ask around.

    Love the dress, it's so pretty.   I can't imagine doing a short dress but part of me thinks it would be awesome and so much more comfortable than a long heavy dress.
