Well, it is over 8 months until the wedding, but I found the perfect dress. It is a private label maker from my local bridal shop. Now I just have to make sure I stay the same size between now and December. Hopefully these pictures work. The first one is a close up of the beading.

I haven''t bought the crinoline yet. The one I tried on at the bridal shop was $55. I thought I would look around for one online before I buy from them. Is $55 a good deal for a very full crinoline w/o hoops?

Lovely! I love the details on the uppder part of the dress!! Be careful about losing weight, most brides loose rather than gain weight close to the wedding if it already fits you.

For a simple purchase that won''t show...I might be tempted to check out what ebay might have to offer for crinoline. If you or your mom can work a sewing machine, you could also make a layer of scrunched up crinoline for super cheap if you buy the materials yourself.

YAY!!!! You look so wonderful in it!
And don''t worry, the dress was the very first thing I did after the engagement (2 weeks after) which was about 11 months before the wedding!

Congrats you look great! I could''ve sworn I already typed this all, but I don''t see it so I guess didn''t hit submit. I agree that you can find something cheaper on ebay. If you want to purchase from a physical store, though, that''s not a bad price.

Thanks a lot guys, its nice to get some opinions that aren''t your mothers. Anyway, I will have to get it taken in a little on the top, either that or I need to find a really good bra. I stopped by the bridal shop yesterday and found out that I can get the crinoline for 15% off since I already bought my dress (so just under $47). I''m going to look around a little more, but it looks like on ebay, I can get one for around $36. I''m also watching craigslist for a deal. I have plenty of time to look.
