thats a lovely dress, i've ordered Gabriella in gold and i love it so much. Didn't like it in the pictures but when i put it on i fell in love, felt like a princess and both me and my two bridesmaids were in tears! when is your wedding?
I'm still not sure what shoes to wear, but i have my heart set on some Diane Hassal ones 'timeless', just trying hard to justify the £185 price tag!
Hi muffin22. Yours too is a lovely dress. I was the same i didnt like the pictures of my dress, they look so much better on . Havent thought about my shoes yet. Im getting married in may in sorrento, what about you? They showed me in the shop that the dress would easily pack into my hand luggage so i can carry it on the plane!
Thank you I'm desperate for the Diane Hassal shoes, but checked the heel height and they are way too high for me, and me and my chap are the same height now, and he hates it if i tower over him. However i have found some in the range with smaller heels!! I'm getting married in Paignton, Devon and then coming back to Plymouth for the reception!! Am so excitied about it all, still cant believe its really happening, roll on 27th September 08!!!
How long have you been engaged and when you getting married??
I'm having 'Sarah' in spun gold. I love it! After very nearly buying Benjamin Roberts 930 I tried the ST dress on 'just to make sure I'd chosen the right one' and ended up buying it!
I like the fact that it's different. The little cap sleeves hide any overhang at top of dress and all the detail at the back should lok good when I'm stood at the alter.
Not sure on shoes yet. I saw some lovely menbur shoes reduced to £30 but they've all gone! I want under 3inch heels, pointy, no ankle strap. Thinking ivory to match the detail on my dress rather than match the gold.
My wedding is 24th august 2008, ordered dress end of september. At least not many people will have our dresses!
I was worried about everyone having the ben roberts one
Hi izzy22999. Really glad someone else loves the heather dress. Mine should arrive next month. If you go onto the sophia tolli website and look on fall 2007 collection you will find it. It doesnt look half as nice on the website xx
hi im another ST bride ive gone for LILA from the fall 2007 collection in white. i love her dresses and chose it by chance. never heard of her (or any other wedding designer lol) untill i tried them on. it was by chance i found it coz it looked so unusual on the hanger. but it ticks every box i could ever ask for.
Just to let you know that my dress arrived last week- heather and i went to try it on on sat but it didnt quite go as expected.The dress was way too big for me. They said at the shop that it was a huge job to make it fit properly because of the lace on the dress. They said that they would have to unpick all the lace and sew it back on.Also concerned about the boning at the front as it sticks out as its way too big on my chest.Really worried,do you think it will be ok?? xxx
But did the shop think it was likely that they COULD do all th work? A good seamstress can work wonders so you should be ok. Have you lost a lot of weight? I measured up on the size chart as a 14 purely because of my bum (my chest is a size 10!) but fortunately the size 12 sample fitted fine (although chest too big) so they agreed to order that.
I'm wondering whether the size charts measure up a bit big then?
Ooooh, hopefully mine will be in soon as I order it in November too.
