Ok, here are the pics!

This (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=230204040610&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=013) is the auction I won. The shipping and handling is where they make their money, but it was $204 total.

They also sent me a free veil an wrap (no pics of those). The material is thick and shiny and so soft! The beading is wonderful, the stitching is great! There is piping in the boobage area, it's AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I paid for it on Jan. 4th and it was delivered on Jan. 22nd, not bad. I have to take it in a little in a few places, but over all it fits well.

Forgive the pics they're taken on my cell phone (at FH's sister's house). I also just got off of work.

So I thought I'd say, I had FH do the measurements....but we had no measuring tape. We borrowed our neighbor's 1 year old son's toy measuring tape from his "tool set". But didn't do too bad, especially since the tape wouldn't fit around the...uh....breast area.

Beautiful! Make sure you bring it to a GOOD seamstress for alterations. (In other words, I wouldn't trust me and my sewing skills or my mom and hers (and she's pretty good). I'd want someone who does this professionally.)

Well I have to admit that I am very impressed with the dress. great job! I was anxious for you when I saw the feedback of the seller so I am glad that it has all worked out.

:inlove: Very lovely. :inlove: I especially like the back detailing. I agree with cftwo--get a good seamstress to do your alterations. A good seamstress can make it fit like it was custom made just for you.
You will make a radiant bride!

Thanks for all of your wonderful comments! I am in LOVE with the dress!!!

Luckly FH's aunt is a seamstress, so I'm going to have her make the few alterations that are needed. She is also going to make the bridesmaid (5 of them) dresses, and only charge the girls for the fabric! All of their dresses will cost about $20 which is too cool.

My two cousins (who are more like sisters), two of FH's sisters and one of his neices are going to be the bridesmaids. They are going to wear blue with white accents for their dresses.
