    I took some crappy camera phone pics, but here is my dress.

    I left it b/c I was not happy with the bustle, the back of the dress is too long. However the dress itself is too long.

    I altered the top into a slight sweetheart, exactly what I wanted!

      Abby, I was totally on that site earlier. I found one I like, but I am not sure. It has the 3/8 ribbon on it and is shoulder length.....I need to think about this one.

      oh maura i forgot, my shower dress is from jc pennys, i dont know how much it was cause i didnt look at the tag, BUT they are having a huge sale, so i think it was around $40. the brand is "my michelle" and its cotton with a poly underslip sewn in, and the stretchy crinoline stuff layered underneath.

      i decided against the embellishments or edging. i almost did a 1/8" satin ribbon, but i couldnt decide if i should get it in ivory or champagne, so i got nothing so i wouldnt be mad about the color :) i like how sheer it looks without anything. maura's is so gorgeous tho, i really had to stop myself from copying and ending up with another long veil i dont want

        I am having a church wedding, so I wanted something dramatic. The veil is simple so the length adds drama!

        Thanks Martha! I'm FINALLY getting excited!

        As for the veil, you can custom make one. Find a veil you really love then send them an email. Mine was custom b/c of the veil. The owner is great!

        i am! i am downing as much water as i can, i am really bloated because im about to get my period, so i picked up some diurex yesterday. i have been taking it religiously so hopefully by saturday morning i will have at least dropped a few pounds of water weight. tomorrow morning i am going to the pharmacy to get alli actually! i am PRAYING it works. i am not going to eat anything but vegetables and lean protein between now and the wedding. i have the alterations scheduled at 10 am saturday for my dress i am wearing to the church in cabo.

        i need to make sure i am hitting the gym for cardio only 4x a week from now on!

          You are so good Abby! I have not done any projects for the wedding! I really need to get moving!

          Maura, don't worry, you shed the pounds, if not have your seamstress let it out. I had to let my dress out, it was way too tight.

          thanks amy! i am trying to be optimistic about it! i just would like to not have to have her let it out if at all possible :) i realize theres no chance of it being able to be taken in, but at least i would rather not have her let it out - it will likely almost double the cost of my alterations for her to do that since it would have to be let out on the part that is lace & beading.

          BTW amy, i love love love the way your dress looks since you did the slight sweetheart, it looks amazing!!! i cant wait to see you with the veil and hair done and everything :) when do you get back from mexico so i know when to start stalking you for photos? haha
