    I think you can work it out girl. No to alterations, bustle and any other dress related question. :)

    Are you having a formal catholic wedding- as in a really long one with lots of kneeling, sitting and standing?

      another good reason to get the wrist loop - you dont want to trip when you try to get back down the aisle after repeatedly kneeling and standing over and over!

        That was my only concern! LOL Have you tried to do all that movement in the dress? Most brides just have to walk their butts down the aisle and stand there for 15-20 minutes. You, Catholic brides on the other hand, have a lot of work cut out for you.

          As fat as I am with AF I need to try that dress on today. I am going home and getting it on, trying it on with the shoes, etc. I need to make sure I can kneel, etc.

          Maybe I will just wear flats instead of the shoes. I think those suckers are like 4 inch heels. I have a feeling this could get complicated. Uggh!

            Maybe with AF in the house you could still kneel in your dress so you wouldn't have to worry so much come wedding day. I would try it on because if you can still do it bloated you know you can do it later.

            As for the heels, you need to keep them!

                What if I trip? I'm a little nervous I'm going to tower over James. I'm 5'4 and I think he is 5'9 maybe 5'10 on a good day. LOL. I can't wait to post pics of the shoes so you guys can see them.

                    How will you tower over him? I'm not a genius but if you are 5'4 and the shoes are 4 inches that makes you 5'8 on a good day.

                    I doubt you will trip! But I still want pics!
