Do you remember way back HERE when I received the first bridesmaid gown? I loved it and was gushing over it and all the bridesmaid's loved it and felt like princesses, and aside from getting the sleeves fixed that was that.
Well.. that WAS that.
See I don't know if I actually told you this part, but when I picked the dress I was originally going to order it from thecelebritydresses.com, but then I heard all these horror stories and decided it was probably too cheap to be good, so I went with one in Australia - dress of your dreams.
I ordered samples and pinked the colour chiffon I wanted. When I received an email from Dress of Your Dreams I was told the dress was shipped and oh yeah btw we couldn't do the twisted bodice in chiffon, so we changed it to chemise satin (I think that's what it is called).
I freaked out initially, but loved the dress anyways as you can tell by my last post.
Now maybe I have had too much time to think about things, but as the rest of the wedding gets put together, that niggling feeling of "I never wanted shiny bridesmaid's dresses" was becoming stronger and stronger, until (with my mum encouraging me) I ordered the dress from thecelebritydresses.com for $165 including delivery. I figured if it is crap, it is my own fault for wasting money.
Is it crap? NOPE! It is beautiful and all of the bridesmaid's agree it is better! It is lighter, the sleeves are perfectly how I wanted them and the train is just beautiful.
I love the softer, non shiny fabric and I think on the day before summer the girls will be a lot more comfortable in this lighter fabric.
So now I want to ask you to.... pick a dress!
Which one do you think is better?
The pinks are different and I loved the dustiness of the first one, but this one is also soft and fairy floss like lol.
Only problem with the new dress is the the bodice sits slightly higher, but this could maybe be altered? I say maybe because I have no idea about the construction of dresses.
The one that loses I think will have to go on ebay or something.
