In Response to It's possible that I found THE dress...
[QUOTE]So, I went dress shopping with my Mom, and I found a dress I reallllly like. It's by Enzoani Blue. I'm trying to post a picture...not sure if it will work. If the pic doesn't work, go to www.enzoani.com , then blick on Blue, Collections, 08, and it's the 4th one in called "Adana". or this link: http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/vendor/designer/enzoani/detail/166447?offset=3 www.brides.com/images/vendor/dressgallery/bridal/bluebyenzaoni/00_main/adana_primary.jpg " alt="" height="340" /> www.brides.com/images/vendor/dressgallery/bridal/bluebyenzaoni/00_main/adana_sec02.jpg " alt="" height="340" /> So, I still want to try on more dresses...it's so fun, and I'm not completely sold on this one yet. I wish it was a corset back (for fit and for less expensive alterations!), and the train is too long for me, but I feel bad having my mom pay for nice Italian silk and then chopping most of it off? I want sweetheart neckline but that's easy to change. Soooo I'm going to see if nothing else compares when I try on others. Did anyone else feel afraid to commit to their dress at first?

Your post has been bugging me on and off for hours. I finally thought I had it figured out. I went shopping with my cousin for dresses, primarily in shops which carried the 2 dress lines she was interested in, Sophia Tolli and Maggie Sottero. She particularly wants some of their typical long fitted or ruched waists, and a sculpted neckline, and likes asymmetrical and bias cuts..
I was thinking of your dress picture, and your wish - that it was corset back, sweetheart neckline, not as long a train as the semi-cathedral of your photo. Then it registered - a woman in the Sherbrooke store was picking up her gown and showing it to her mother and sister who had not seen it.
So I looked up the picture in Maggie Sottero, and it puzzled me. I knew the back view did not have the molded to the derriere look of yours, but this one had a flat smooth back so very UN-LIKE yours. Then I realized, the B to B wearing the dress had shown it to family with the short train out, then bustled. Bustled with the American style 1 point pick-up like this
the one on the left with the train pulled up in an A of folds to a single point - which your gown has as a design feature draping down to the long train when not bustled
The bears in our late to fruit blueberry bushes - or rather, 4 dogs in the house barking at them - got me up, then this image in my mind niggling at me got me on-line to look, so I will give the links to the dress. It is not silk, and like many of Maggie's that this store stocks is in the 9-1200 dollar range, a notch down from yours - but now I can go to sleep.
