Sunday night I came home to a wonderful surprise in my inbox.. an e-mail from my sales rep with Dolly Couture!!! And, what did it contain you ask?


My custom dress sketch! 
(I love the bling they drew on the hand.. lol, too cute!)

I absolutely LOVE it and I'm going to be placing my order in the next day or two. We're still deciding if we want to do the rush order or not. If we don't do a rush order, the dress will be done in 10-12 weeks, which gets it to me about a month before the wedding. Or, I can do a rush order for an extra $175 and the dress will be done in 6-8 weeks. I'm still trying to decide if having it about a month earlier is worth the extra money. What's your opinion?


  1. Very nice! I'm waiting on my sketch! I can't wait to see your dress! I'm about to blog about my possible dress.

  2. That's so awesome that you got a nice customized sketch. Personally, I would pay for the rush delivery, because I'm paranoid like that!

  3. I love your dress! So beautiful! I did standard delivery, and actually got it earlier than I anticipated, but it was during their slower time. The thing you have to think about is alterations. If you have to do any, is one month enough time? Talk to a seamstress or tailor to see, then make your choice!

  4. I'm with jenny. I'm super paranoid ( with good reason)so I'd do the rush just for peace of mind.

  5. This is a beautiful design! You're a lucky, lucky girl :)

  6. I love the sketch. I love Polka dots and Maggie Sottero had a polka dot dress called Rasharna and it was beautiful. I would have definitely ordered it for my wedding had it not been discontinued just months before. I was very upset, but things happen for a reason I guess! I love your blog and I am now your newest follower!
