I have spent weeks/months trying on dresses of all different styles, colours, materials etc but still hadn't found 'the one'. But I fell in love with one on line & am waiting for it to come.... I never trired it on though, there are no stockists in Ireland that has that one. It should be posted in the next week or so :ooh :ooh Just wondering if theres anyone else that's done that? O-O

Hi same as Rocksie, bought mine on ebay (1700e of a saving!) and it is amazing. there is no way i could afford the dress otherwise. i still can't believe she is mine... :)

Bought mine while I was in the States, thought a bridal shop had it in stock but when I got there they didn't have it but I knew it was the one and that it would suit me so I just went ahead and ordered it. When it arrived it was even nicer as you couldn't see some of the detail on the website, got it a size larger though so when I try it on it does look a bit odd but once it fits I know it will be fab! One word of advice for you though especially if your feeling a bit nervous about it is try to find a similar looking dress and try that on somewhere so that you know that the shape will suit you. Here are some good sites too check that your dress will suit your body type. http://wedding.theknot.com/bridal-fashi ...

Yep I did i bought mine online from the states I measured yself and compared it with the size guide and it fit perfectly it was only €300 so it wouldn't have been a huge waste if it was wrong but i know hwat suits me and didn't find anything nice for that price in bridal shops.
