But no need to worry, it was absolutely worth every penny I spent, and I do not regret doing this. Since we were eloping (from Norway to New York) I needed a dress that I could fit in my suitcase. I thought that I could get a new dress for our party next year, but in fact, now I look forward to use it again in our "wedding party".
I got comments on the dress at the marriage bureau, and felt perfect on my day.
The only negative thing about the dress, was that I had to fasten some of the beads, but all in all the dress was perfect for me. Nice fabric and the dress is well sewn.
