I am SO happy!

Thank you to the BDW ladies who helped me figure out this was a DaVinci dress - I seriously spent about 6 weeks trying to figure it out on my own with no luck before it occurred to me to ask on here. duh. see here for the full story Click the image to open in full size.

i didnt have the crinoline underneath arranged properly so it looks flat from the side here, but it will be a bit fuller when i do it right. we were in a hurry to get pics because they didnt allow pics where i tried it on, so my cousins shut the door and one stood against it while the other took the photos haha

                    Oooh, I really love it!!! I can't believe you got it at such an amazing deal, I'm seriously jealous. It sounds like you went to the right bridal salo; they'll take good care of you.

                    One thing I was wondering about, was the pickups. You mentioned that you wanted her to add more towards the bottom, but will there be enough material to do that??

                    Haha, I did the same thing with my mom for pictures. I told the lady that my mom was going to help me with the dress, she'd come in and snap a few pictures... and because we're paranoid freaks, we'd talk the whole time. My mom would say something like, "oh this is a tight knot!". lol.
