Hi! I just wanted to let everyone know that I did my research and used Netbride.com to order my wedding dress after reading the book. Although one negative point the Fields' gave it was that you know which bridal shop Netbride is connected to (Rush's in Minneapolis), I was actually glad because I was able to find that Rush's is an authorized vendor of Casablanca. They have an excellent measurement guide with each vendor's measurements, and my dress arrived in beautiful, perfect condition more than one month early. It was also $200 less than any bridal shop in my area, even though I'm in the Southeast where things are "inexpensive". They were great through email and phone, and sent a fabric swatch so that I could compare color. I am very excited to recommend them...I had a great experience and cannot wait to wear my dress in November!
