    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.

         

        I’m glad I’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 I’m wearing a mermaid. But my alterations are seemingly minor/basic; I don’t even need my dress hemmed.

                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)


                Are you interested in an affordable decor rental in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico? Send me a message! Most of the items I have are a rustic, vintage style.

                  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
