This is the link to the exact pair I got, they are really beautiful and match my dress perfectly:

The seller was Poetry Jewelry, everything arrived timely (all the way from Australia!) and nicely wrapped. I bought a matching bracelet to go with. She has tons of lovely pearl jewelry.

Yay for first fitting! I have mine Monday!

Thanks Ladies.

 

Iâ€m glad Iâ€m not the only one who is just starting the fitting process, I was starting to think that I waited too long. My seamstress advised that it would be 2-3 weeks for completion, and doesn't anticipate a 2nd fitting, but if it's needed then an additional 1-2 weeks  would be required.  I wanted to give myself ample opportunity to get my physique where I wanted especially since Iâ€m wearing a mermaid. But my alterations are seemingly minor/basic; I donâ€t even need my dress hemmed.

This is my "Something Blue" Heehee, my FI will love it ;)

Etsy shop: GartersByKristi  She does all kinds of NHL, NFL sports team stuff!  I know you're not going with a garter, but just in case others are interested...

 

What about stitching your wedding date in blue thread under your dress? I also saw really cute blue crinolines on Etsy,

or blue shoes, or a blue rosary?  Pinterest has tons of fab ideas as well..

Natural waist for sure. It makes your chest and waist look fantastic. That dress fits you like a dream!

 

I've had two fittings so far, with my final one next week! I'll post some pictures soon. We're in Vancouver right now and head back down to Mexico in a week and a half, with my finished dress in hand. (Plus 4 suitcases of wedding stuff haha)

I am having the same thing --my sash is all rhinestones and crystals and being sewn in ...I am doing the empire...but only because my tummy isnt the most flattering part of this body --I need to draw the attention more to my "girls" hahahahahahaha
