I brought my dress from here for my 4/23/2016 Wedding. And if anything that didn't went perfect on that day it wasn't the dress. I got sooo many compliments... so for $250 I saved $$$ on my dress. 1)Get a seamstress to measure you. Do not go by they sizing. 2) add 2 inches especially if you have hips! 3) order 6 months in advance so you can alter it. Hell the dresses in the states charges for alterations too, who are we kidding its not free! 4) I chose corset, because I can tighten or loosen to my liking... I got dress with a detachable train skirt for no addition cost. You can friend me on Facebook Ttauri Barron to see pics. And good luck, happy shopping... Oh PS don't by mil or mother of the bride unless its winter, they are heavy. Period. Go to Macy or Dillard's.
