Your vail looks similar to mine. Does it have pearl beading on it?
It has ivory pearls and some clear crystals that match the dress. It's an Ansonia veil from Discount Ansonia Bridal Veils for your Wedding Apparel

My Mom gave me her pearls and I am having them restrung as a choker to wear with it. The jewelery shop is also going to match the pearls from the necklace for earrings and a bracelet. Mom's pearls are a dark ivory, almost the color of the champagne detailing on my dress, so matching it is a little tough.

Your dress looks fabulous bustled. I don't like how mine bustles up but the style of the dress didn't leave me much options.

 

I too hate my upper body. I noticed that I didn't have as much armpit fat (lol) when I went braless. I think I will ask for cups to be sewn in because to make the top fit I get totally squeezed in by the corset. Have you tried going braless? Maybe that will help and cut down on the gym work!

Thanks Rachel!

The way the seamstress did the bustle first didn't show the detail ... so I asked her if there was another option ... and what you see in the pics is the end result. I thought it would have been a total waste to have all that beautiful detailing and not be able to really see it if she used the traditional bustle.

I guess I need to try the braless option and look into the sewn in bra cups. I'm just afraid since it's a zip-up dress that I won't be able to suck evertything in w/o the longline bra. Plus, I am practically boobless, so braless might be boyish. lol

I'll give it a shot when I go back for my 2nd fitting. (I guess I could try it w/ my TTD dress though and see how it looks b/c it's the same designer and size as my wedding dress).

Tami I know what you mean about not feeling comfortable but you really do look beautiful in it.. No need to worry about any trouble areas that only you notice.. I promise nobody else will ever notice it! It's natural to have that!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
