I got it in diamond white so that I don't match the sand lol, and I am getting rid of the bow. I am also thinking about changing the neckline to make it more of a sweetheart, but still undecided about that part.

Finleya, what a gorgeous dress! I also have somewhat of a straight-across bodice, and am going to make it a slight sweetheart - I was amazed at what a difference such a slight alteration can make!

I found my dress at the Bridal Garden in NYC. It is a non-profit who donates all of their proceeds to educational programs for children. It was a very laid back experience and it was nice to not buy into the "wedding machine". I was able to take the dress home with me that very day! I am altering the neckline to sweetheart, the back to come down in a v, instead of straight across, adding buttons all the way down the back, and removing the underlayer, where it hits the floors, so it will only be lace gliding over the sand!! I'm  going to wait about 6 months to start the alterations though.

Your dress is absolutely beautiful, the detailing is so, so pretty, I haven't see anything like it before.

That sounds like an awesome experience!  Gorgeous dress too by the way!  Might have to see if they have any stores like that here in vancouver!
