Hi everyone!
I posted several weeks ago about my dress disaster (https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/dress-disaster-need-reassurance.57948/) and just wanted to update everyone...I went back to the bridal shop yesterday, and I could not be happier! Not only did they address my issues (Marianne Lanting herself "de-poofed" the dress, and could not have been more accomodating), but they went above and beyond to be helpful and even ended up comping $500 worth of alterations AND did them all in one day (I''m an out of town bride so: it''s difficult for me to do multiple fittings). Looking at the pictures, the dress might not look THAT different, but it feels entirely different on (SO Much better!).

Also, the dress is not perfectly arranged in the pics (these were taken long after the bridal shop had closed b/c they were working on the alterations so late, and we were all anxious to get home at that point!), but you get the picture....

First, the old dress:

last but not least, had the hair trial (the day before the dress fitting...hence the nasty hair in above pics). i really liked it!
this is all so much fun!

It''s STUNNING! I liked it before also but it looks perfect now, I''m loving the sash. It''s great how accommodating they were!


And your hair looks so shiny! It is very similar to how I want to do mine, I love it!

Your dress is very beautiful! I especially like the pink sash around your waist, it adds a very romantinc feel & touch to the simple elegance of the dress. I''m glad things worked out for the best! Enjoy it...

Thank you everyone for your sweet words! Even just checking back on this thread, I look at the pictures of the "new" dress and I am SO excited. I think this must be love.
I can''t wait...only 80 more days until I get to put this beauty on again!!!
Thanks again!
