Satin Side Drape Gown with Tiered Skirt Style SAS1218
A great choice!!
This dress was exactly what I wanted for my wedding, but I was so hesitant to buy online. I shouldn't have been!!! The best choice I ever made. If you are like me and look at the picture on the website over and over and over, you may be a little disapointed by how it looks on you, just because the model is so skinny. However, if you do have a shape (like the 90% rest of us) than you will love it because it is really flattering. I ordered my dress with the slip and recieved it in 5 days. I scheduled my alteration appointment as soon as I got it. From purchase day to the day I brought it home was less than 1 month!!!! Amazing! The staff at David's bridal is soo soo nice too! Another nice thing about this dress is that it is soo simple you can go crazy with accessories. I paired my dress with a lovely pure white beaded sash that I purchased online for 50 dollars.

I bought this dress online for my September 2011 wedding (yes, online, without even trying it on beforehand!)
I'm a size 12 (so wedding dress size 16/14W) and wanted a dress with a bit of texture to hide my belly without the dress being too over the top. When I received this dress in the mail, I tried it on and it fit perfectly and was oh-so-comfortable! The only alterations I had to get done was the halter strap (my mother in law adjusted it for me) but that's due to being a bit on the small chested size. I was able to last the entire day/night in this dress and did not have any problems moving in it or tripping over the train (it's a very 'hassle-free' dress)
It was a great buy at $200 and I would recommend it to anyone!

I fell in love with this dress online! I never even went to the store and tried anything else on. I was super nervous never having done anything like that before but when I got it, was totally blown away! I am not an over the top girly girl but knew I wanted something unique and frill without the poof and a massive train. This was perfect! Also, I am 5' 10" and plan on wearing 2-3" heel. The alterations specialist at Davids said that would be fine there were 2 layers she could let out to give me a bit more length. I generally wear anything from a 10-14 in dresses (I'm pear shaped & this dress really does play up all the right features), but having gone to help try on dresses with several friends, I did as they had and ordered a size up to the 14. When I got it, it was a bit loose. The strap & bust still need to be taken up, but once I got all the right undergarments it fit perfect everywhere else! And if you are looking for that wow factor and not sure it this will do it... when I took it in the store for a fitting, all the other brides to be were asking where it was and if they could try it. Plus as a grad student on a tiny budget the price was perfect!!! My original dress budget was 5-600 and I got dress, slip, bra, veil, sash, shoes, & Preservation kit for $500. I chose very plain accessories, and pulled them all together with a glitzy sash that will match my bridesmaids color. Plus I'm going to have my Mom tie the sash since there are no laces or anything for her to tend. I strongly suggest planning to have either your veil, hair, jewels, or a sash stand out because the dress doesn't have any embellishments. Just to help with your planning :) My wedding is next Oct 6th! And it feels so good to already have a big part of my wedding expenses paid for. People say that I will change my mind about my dress by then, but I have tried the dress on 3 times since I got it in August. Each time I get nervous before and end up loving it even more after!

Better than the picture
I ordered this dress because it was similar in style to a dress I tried on at another store that was $500 more. I was SO relieved and happy when I got it in the mail and tried it on. It looked even better on me than in the picture. The sizing was very accurate. I plan to alter the straps to make it higher, which should be very easy, and take in the waist. This is a good dress for adding accessories since it is very simple. I'm probably going to make a sash.
I definitely recommend this dress, especially if you are curvier, because it shows off the curves (no offense to the model!). I don't know how it would work on a very thin woman.
I'm getting married in a very small Catholic Chapel in NYC with very few people (less than 10). This dress will be very easy for me to get into and walk around in without help since the "train" is very short and the material is fairly lightweight.
