    Hi Ladies,

    Sorry for starting a new thread on this but couldn't find the old one! Based on some recommendations I've been on a site you all use and found a dress I love (has picture of the one they've actually made aswell) and have put pic on my profile - it's the lace one.
    Who else was it that has brought from here? I love both the dresses on my profile although both very different and have only tried on the 1st one. It's a price difference of about £1300 but don't know whether to risk it?!

    Omg Gem dont do that too me! Im getting a lace dress from there and my heart sunk when I read that! lol... Your is beautiful though :) Im having the same train of thought but tiggs is really happy with hers and she wouldnt be able to stay in business if they were crap dresses.. That n the fact that I nearly have a heart attack when I think of spending £1000 on a dress for one day clinch the deal for me!

    Sorry Ria!! Didn't mean to scare you!!
    Thanks, I think I'm nervous aswell because when I went to try on a few dresses, the ones I liked online looked awful on which is probably the reason I fell in love with other dress in profile as so different.
    Think might go and try a few more on in shops and try find similar style and if still love it I'll just go for it - Guess I could always sell it on ebay if I don't like it! They've said they could put a corset back in it too which would make me less worried about the size being perfect too x

    Gem, I really like the last dress, it just looks more "special" to me. But I would find one similar (I'm sure ann bases these on actually dresses) and try it first and make sure it suits you before parting with any money!

    Thanks Tiggs, it looks amazing and really well made.
    Think I'll take your advice Nic and find similar style first - i had a vision of a lace dress but loved the top of dress 1 so think it combines the 2 perfectly. Now just need to find the original somewhere!

    Thanks again ladies, I love this forum!

    I don't know how Ann has time to actually make the dresses with all the emails she sends - she always answers mine quite quickly and sends more and more photos suggesting dresses

    I'm going to buy from Ann at Your Bridal Wear. I just have to try the dress on this weekend at a shop to show my sister, then I will order it. I have done my research and she has great reviews and the dress I want is the best price I have seen.

    I just need some advice girls - I need all my measurements and want someone professional to measure me so that I don't do it wrong. If I asked the girls at the bridal shop to do it I'm sure they wouldn't... Do you suggest I find a local seamstress to ask if she would do this for me? Do you think she would charge? Mmmm not sure what to do? Not sure if a seamstress would want to just measure me?

    I love this forum too!

    I had this dilemma too but used the sites measuring guide which was easy to follow as it had pictures too and had my mum measure me, write down her measurements, then my HTB did it and wrote down his and also my chief bm then I checked they were all the same and took the average. I'm having a corset back anyway which makes some allowances either side and there wasnt any huge differences they were all within 0.5 of a cm.

    Wow! Kessy, just had a look at your photos - your dress looks stunning! Bet you can't wait to try it on?
    Thanks for your suggestion - I'll get a few people to measure me then I hopefully will get it right. My dress will also have a corset back so it will give abit. I will have to take a look at her instructions for measuring. I've also got a dilema about ordering the dress now as my wedding isn't until September and was hoping to loose a few ponds...

    Hi everyone i myself have had communication with Ann at yours bridal wear uk she is base in Buckinghamshire i beleive and it is a family run buisness that has a factory i don't beleive them to be china imports, or maybe they r and she alters them to fit perfect if thats what u requirem although i havn't been chekky enought to ask her that ( if anyoneknows can they u let me know) her comms are first rate always returning emails within 24 hours, she will make anything u ask really,but im sceptical about what the quality will be like and being a plus size i worry that maybe it woudn't suit me when it arrives, ooooh what to do i havn't got much time girls help!!!!

    I am going to go to a local wedding shop ( Although im sure they wont have plus size dreses) But a freidn of mine told me that they will try the biggest one they have on you as the front of the dresses dont vary that much so you get an idea on what sort of shape will suit you.

    I just hope the assistants arnt patronising and horrible as in my experience they can be. When I decide what sort of shape i want it will be Ann all the way :-)
