    So as many of you know I got my dress a the Running of the Brides event that Filene's Basement holds. I posted that experience here. Click the image to open in full size.

    The dress was a size 12 when I got it and originally looked like this. I'm holding it in the back:

    After the first fitting, it looked like this:

    It's only half bustled here:

    And finally here is the finished product!

    It is fully bustled here. I didn't think to take a pic of the train fully out.

    She took the dress from a bridal 12 down to about a street size 2, hemmed it, and did a fully custom 2 level, 11 ribbon bustle for only $150. Plus she also put a stitch across the top since it was not laying right. I was going to wear my hair up, but when I came home from my hair trial, I could tell my FI was thinking my hair would be down so I think I'm going to do it down and wavy. Let me know what you ladies think of the dress and hair idea!

          Wow. Very nice dress... I can't believe they were able to take it down from a 12 to a 2 and still maintain the style of the dress.

            Looks great! Congrats on a great dress! And I think your hair down and wavy would look great with the dress!
