So, I ordered my dress in mid or late October. It''s the Fanal in Oyster, which I have never tried on in even close to my size. Everyone loved it, said it was a rich-looking satin, said it was THE dress, and I felt pretty good about it, too. It was strapless, which was not really my thing, but it was pretty and not overly ornate. So we ordered it, in it will supposedly come in sometime next month. They are even allowing me to return it if I don''t like it, since I tried it on literally 6 sizes too big (a size 18 or 20, but I''m an 6 or 8).

Meanwhile, I''ve been wondering if I ordered the wrong dress. I think part of it is that I can only find the manufacturer''s picture, which didn''t look pearl colored with a hint of gold, as the dress I''d been wearing did, but very gold. It''s also kind of a weird picture. I''ve seen another girl on the knot with the dress & I liked it better on her than on some model standing on a footstool! I''d never have liked it or asked to try it on based on the model pic, but I''m hoping that''s all lighting & posing. So, long story long, if you are a Fanal bride, please post your pics here & tell me your dress color. Also, if you have bustle pics, please post those as well! I need to know if I love this dress.

What you see depends on what you're looking for.
