Andrea's Review for Her Custom-made Wedding DressHere she is!
Hi girls.. in case anyone was following this thread, I just wanted to share an update and a pic of me in it!! I had my second fitting today, and well, the dress is now done and sitting waiting for me to get it a week before the wedding. The had to take in the sides and fit it around my chesticle area a bit more and she pressed it...... Sorry about the crappy cell phone pic.
I'm undecided on whether or not to wear crinoline. I'll bring it with me and try the dress on with it when I go get it... On and it's bustled in this pic. The one beneath it is pre bustled with them trying to find the hookie things but you get an idea of how long the train is.
Ah yes, decisions, decisions. I think at this point, it's subjective either way...
I decided in the end to do the crinny, as I felt the dress needed it to keep its form. After the wedding, I would highly recommend Dressilyme either adds more boning than their standard, or puts in a higher quality boning because my dress started buckling after a short time and I wasn't happy with that.
And for what it's worth, the wedding was awesome! It went so fast. Here's a non-pro pic (ok, so I have no idea what I was looking at, lol)
It's not like the dress didn't hold up well. It held up great. Also keep in mind that my chest is very large, and I believe that extra boning and/or better quality boning would have held it up better... I wouldn't let that deter me from purchasing from Dressilyme; but I would have them address this issue. They made me a beautiful gown and I have no regrets.
Here's another angle... (and my son's body, ha)
