Thank you Ladies! What would we do without BDW!
Thank you, originally we were planning on having a simple DW. But now we have almost 90 ppl coming, amazing photographer and I'm not sure the dress suits the occasion anymore.
The necklace I am having made is Swarovski crystals on 3 or 4 "invisable" strands to make it look like it's floating, if that makes sense.
Weight loss was a combination of exersice and strict protein diet.

I know what you mean about wanting to show off the new body, why not flaunt it right!? Anyways, its completely up to you and how the dress makes you feel. If you don't think its the one then go try some more on, you never know, you could find something you love better or not like anything out there and realize that this is the dress that makes you feel beautiful and you made the right choice. It's all about your confidence in the dress, you look amazing in it in the pic so I'm sure 15 lbs down you look even better now!
Congrats on the weight loss as well, have you just been eating well and working out?
Originally I was going to get a sash made but the back details doesn't look right with a belt.
There was an ugly broach attached to the dress, and may replace it with a flower or another broach, if I keep it

Is there anyway you could add a flower or belt to it to jazz it up a bit? I know thats what I am doing - adding a different flower to the dress.
I'm going around this weekend to try some more dresses on, and keeping an eye on kijiji!
Wow, I do not envy any of you who are also planning your AHR at the same time as the wedding. My FI, Mom, and girlfriends won't let me even think about the AHR until we get back! But, we're having it in June in our backyard.

For your flowers, have you tried blossom bridal in Toronto? You may be close to the deadline but she is great to work with. I should be getting my proof photos right away. You and I both only have 44 days, so take a deep breath...I am calm now but will likely need you to help me calm down in a few weeks;) We are trying to get our ATR settled right now, pre travel packages out then the ATR invitations out. Not to mention a registry organized. One thing at a time and you will get it all done.
Hang in there!
I could bring it in a little more at the hips/just below, and will probably do that if I can't find anything else.
