Wedding Dress Switch!

As many of you may remember, I was getting a custom made polka dot dress made from etsy that was inspired by the Michelle Roth "Maya" dress. Well, that has fallen through and there for a few days I went through a depression.  See, we are 4 1/2 months out from the wedding which doesn't leave much time to go out and order a dress. But, that wasn't why I went through the depression. You see, I LOVEEE polka dots, I built certain parts of the wedding around having a polka dot wedding dress. I incorporated it into our invites, had a cake topper made, a hair piece made, a tie for Derrick to wear.

So, I picked myself up out of my slump and something marvelous happened. I came across another polka dot dress that I loved.. that I loved more than the one I was having made. But, at the time, I put it on the back burner and forgot about it since I was in the process of having the one made.

It was like the clouds to the Heavens parted when I opened up the pictures of the polka dot beauty. BUT.. problem is, I haven't been able to find this dress ANYWHERE. I searched and searched and searched on google and nada, zilch, zero.. NOTHING.

What did I do, you ask? I contacted Dolly Couture and talked to a rep about making my dress and if it would be enough time.

Answer? Yes, they can make it and yes, it'll be done 1-2 months before my wedding. I'm currently waiting to receive the sketch of the dress before I place my order, but I'm so excited about it. Dolly Couture does amazing work and I have NO worries whatsoever about this.

Want to see the polka dot dress that Dolly Couture is going to make me? Here's the inspiration pictures, I'll share the sketch at a later date when I receive it!

Polka dot? Check! One-Shoulder? Check! Poofy? Check! 

Those were the three main things I wanted in a dress and this dress has those. Hey.. maybe things really do happen for a reason.


  1. I was a Dolly bride too! They are so fantastic to work with, and I'm sure your dress will be stunning!

  2. I love Dolly Coture. I still may end up getting a dress from them. Still debating with the Justin Alexander. In my mind, I could actually try on the Justin and couldn't with a Dolly...but then she read my mind and opened up a salon in NYC. I could go and try them on!

  3. Yup everything happens for a reason and now you're getting a dress you're more in love with. Perfection!

  4. What a beautiful and fun dress! SO glad you found the one you had been searching for!
