    Mel- great gift from you sis.

    I love the dress and the lace pattern is georgeous and will be very photogenic.

    I totally agree with everyone that one you are all done up hair and make up it will be amazing.

    If there was one change that I think could happen, I think the sweet heart neckline could be softened. Like if you took the very top and folded it under just a hair to make it a little less round , just to see what it looked like. That might make the shape blend a little better with the lace pattern. or if it makes no difference then you know it is just right the way it is.

    JPitts- yes I am starting to get nervous. I had a really tough time sleeping last night.

      Melissa, I totally agree with everyone that the dress looks great! I looked at the pictures before I read what you wrote and was surprised you didn't like it.
      It doesn't look like a replica at all and I absolutely adore the way the lace and the fabric cross.
      it honestly does look great on you.

            I agree with the other girls, Melissa. That dress looks great on you and it will be even better once you're all done up.

                Honey you look amazing! That dress will be so beautiful outside in the daylight. What I think I like best though is how awesome your tatoos look with it. I'm not sure why but for some reason I just really like the combination of the dress and tats :-)

                I agree with Erika, when you have the hem done play around with the bodice a little bit and see if softening that line helps you feel better about it.

                Either way you will be a princess.

                  Mel, I agree with everyone else. Your dress is beautiful!

                  I also feel like I'm forgetting something. I think it's because I have so many half finished projects on the go. Hopefully everything I've been waiting on will show up this week and I can be done.

                  On a good note, the lady who did my BD shoot sent me the link to my pics. They turned out way better than I ever thought! I'm so glad I decided to go ahead with this. I will post a few pics as soon as I can.

                  Off to work on my favour tags...

                      Mellisa I love your tats.

                      Someone was looking for a cheap favor idea. My favors were cheap and i like em bc they're handmade. I think I said this be4 lol but we ordered sanddollars from ebay and hand wrote our names and wedding date sprayed them with glitter and made them Christmas ornaments. We also put a poem connecting sanddollars to the Christmas Story and voila a great cheap favor. I'll try to attach pictures but I don't think it's very bright.Oh also they favor tags on the gift boxes were made by Ana De Roux Click the image to open in full size.

                      Also here are pics of the barefoot sandals first are mine then the girls. I took those pics from the etsy site but I'll take my own pic for my planning thread.
