Like i said before I really like your skirt. your dress is very hollywood and is perfect for your wedding. I think if you feel the train is too long then its a great idea to shorten and move the flowers. Make sure you find a seamstress that knowns what they are doing because it would be so sad if they ruin your skirt.

Anyway, I'd like some feedback. I'm happy with the overall quality and fit. The dress under the rosettes is not the same color and I was thinking about shortening the train and moving the extra rosettes to the skirt to make it more dense. Any thoughts?
The dress is more the dark red color in the photo of the skirt and I'm very happy with that. The bust line seems to have been adjusted at one point to make the side less revealing and I'm pretty happy with that overall. It does have a privacy panel but I'm thinking with the laces tightened it won't be so revealing and I'll probably just go without.
Alright ladies, I haven't been here in a bit, but I finally got a couple of pro pics (literally a couple, two! lol) So here's the best of the two that shows off the dress detail. If you saw my previous post about how FabulousU (fushopping.com) ruined my gown (and it cost more to repair the *@#%^! than it did to buy it!), then you will notice that the "wrinkly dog belly" is gone! (If you haven't seen it, it's WAY back there! Maybe somewhere around 250-ish?)
My seamstress was AWESOME!! She removed the boning from the cups (I was wearing a bra anyway), she bustled the train (that bugger was HUGE!), she shortened the gown and removed all the wrinkles! My dress was actually a little too big on me, but it was okay because it allowed it to flow a little better I had all of the "guts" removed from the gown so it fell straight and was not quite as warm (although still SUPER heavy!)
Wearing the dress when it arrived, I felt horrible. I cried, I felt so ugly, and I felt like the fattest bride that ever lived! But once the gathers were taken from just below the bust, it took all of the attention OFF that area and brought it back up to "the girls", and I can honestly say I felt beautiful on my wedding day, "wings" and all! lol
And I've covered up our faces because I'm making a funny face, it looks like I'm laughing at hub while he's trying to be romantic and kiss my neck. Aaaand, I like my privacy
