Monique Lhuillier gown at Bridal Galleria

I tried on a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown at Bridal Galleria in San Francisco over the weekend. It's the only dress that made my dad cry, so it's my top contender...only problem is that I tried on about 50 gowns that day, and Bridal Galleria doesn't allow photos, so I'm dying to see a photo of the dress to refresh my memory. It's a strapless A-line with a full skirt with pick-ups, a really unique sweetheart strapless bust that sort of swirls, and a jeweled belt at the waist. It's from the Spring 2009 collection, but there isn't a photo of it on the ML web site. Has anyone else tried on this dress, or worn it for her own wedding, and is willing to share a photo? It would be so very appreciated! Many many thanks!

If you don't find it on the Martha Stewart page, I definitely suggest calling Bridal Galleria back and pleading your case. If you make it clear that this dress is your top contender, but that you don't feel comfortable buying it without a picture of yourself in it, they would be crazy to not allow a picture. At least one on your phone for goodness' sake! No one wants to lose a sale. Good luck! That's sweet about your dad.

Thanks so much for the help so far! Unfortunately it's not on the MS site, when I talked to Bridal Galleria today, they were adamant about the no photo rule. They said it's the designer's policy, which is strange because I have tried on Monique Lhuillier gowns in other stores and been able to take pictures. Such a bummer!

I also went to Bridal Galleria, and there might be a way to snap a quick pic... Bring someone with you when you're trying stuff on, then if the dress is too big, or you want to try it with a veil, etc, just ask your attendant to fetch something for you. I managed to get my bridesmaid to snap a quick pic for me while the attendant was away. =P

Alternatively, you can do it legit. Just tell them you're interested in that dress, and ask for the name or catalog number or something. They will at least tell you that (they told me the names of the dresses I liked). Then you can call other places that allow photos, like Bay Area Bridal or Trudy's.

Good luck!!!

Hi! This sounds very familiar to my dress I wore - but my wedding was in August 2008 so it may be a bit different...here it is nonetheless...

PS - Monique is my favorite wedding dress designer - you are going to feel amazing on your wedding day!

Heather--thank you so much for sharing your picture! You look gorgeous! Your dress is definitely similar!

Angelawu1--thank you so much for the tips! Bridal Galleria told me they could give me a copy of the designer's sketch of the dress...not quite the same as me in it, but better than nothing I suppose!
