I picked up my dress today! eeeeeeeee! aside from the fact that i need to lose about 5 pounds so that it fits me more loosely in the hips, its perfect. once i lose those 5 pounds, i can pull the dress down a bit so that the V of the halter is a bit lower and will make my cleavage look good. i need it altered a bit on the sides by the underarms, and needs to be taken up in the skirt too. will also do a french underbustle. had my stepmom come over to take pics so i could show you! i did NOT want to take it off. i totally felt like a bride. enjoy :)

this one is kinda funny because of the tv in the background haha

    Oh Maura, I love your dress! You look beautiful! Are you wearing a sash around your waist? if so what color will you wear?

        Gorgeous dress! I think a sash would be a great addition, but you'll ook wonderful in it either way.

        thanks sandra :) you know... i ordered the ivory sash with it, and when i tried the sash on, it just didnt look right because i am very short-waisted. most of my midsection disappears behind the sash, and you cant see much of the lacework. my plan all along was to wear my best friend's monique lhuillier champagne satin sash she wore on her wedding day, but honestly, wearing the sash made it look like i have no waist, and i also really want the lace to be very visible because its so pretty, so i think i may go without the sash.

              It's a gorgeous dress and looks great on you. I don't know about the sash, I like the way it is without.
