I got my dress yesterday! It looks a little funny on the bottom because I had her pin back the crinoline so it wasn't so poofy. I'm not sure what belt I'll wear with it - the coral one is just one I created to see what a pop of color looked like.

 

It's a San Patrick Rivoli and I absolutely love it for my rustic vintage beach wedding!

I've already been engaged for a year, so I had a lot of time to browse online and get a sense of what I wanted. I ended up ordering my dream dress that I was comparing every other dress to. It's modern but has vintage touches in the flowers and beading, which is exactly what I wanted. It's Hayley Paige's Nina (HP6254). [be careful doing a Google image search on that -- there was a porn star with the same name!] 400 400 400
I adore the detailing of this dress. The back is gorgeous as the other ladies have mentioned, but I also love the straps. Very pretty.

I love it. I have a similar silhouette for my dress so Im partial to dresses like this one. It fits your shape nicely. The coral belt is definitely a pop but in my humble opinion, it might be too much of a pop. I think it detracts from the beauty of the dress, especially if you are going for a vintage beach theme. I think you could forego the belt altogether or have a vintage looking one. The dress fits the theme so perfectly though so congrats!

400 My first fitting of many! Top will become a sweet heart neck line and lots of taking in. I'm going to add a bustle for the reception :)
Aww I wish I could see the front a little better but the back is beautiful. I love a nice train. Any reason they have to take it in so much? Did you lose a lot of weight?

I totally agree! I was just talking to my mom about doing a little blingy belt in ivory to match the dress. Thanks for your opinion, it confirmed what I was thinking! ;)

Ok Whew- I was worried about expressing it because I didn't want to rain on your parade. I didn't know how to say it in a way that wasn't offensive. I think the dress is a beauty and you can definitely achieve your pop of color with coral shoes, jewelry, or your flowers! My colors are 3 shades of blue so I plan on adding my pops of color in my flowers, my shoes, and my jewelry. Maybe not all of them, but those are the places I'm thinking about.

This dress is sooooooooo beautiful and looks amazing on you!!! I agree with EV about the coloured belt, it does detract from the dress and might look better with a simple vintage inspired rhinestone sash.

I Love your dress and it looks fantastic on you, but I'm also biased since I'm also wearing the Rivoli for my May 2013 wedding.  It's crazy how the same dress can look different from one bride to the next, I knew it was similar to mine but almost didn't recognize it. But i also loved the poof and might add a layer of crinoline to emphasize ther mermaird sillhouette.  I also agree with the previos posts to opt for a different sash that would fit with your vintage theme and maybe save the pop of color for your shoes.

 

And by the way, are you an Oregonian? This looks like bridal exclusives in Clackamas.

  Yes I was in clackamas. Small world! I live in Albany though. Where are you located and where are you getting married? I'm getting married I'm Turks and Caicos in November. :) I'd love to see a picture of the dress on you! I didn't want you much of a poof bc we are boating back to a private island to get married and just didn't think it would work. It's such a timeless dress!

 

I'll also be doing coral in my bouquet and shoes. DIY coral glitter shoes! :)

 

Thanks for all the open opinions! It's nice to have the honesty!!! ;)

I'm in Portland. Since my Fi and I are both transplants we decided to have a DW in Puerto Morelos, MX.

 

I thought the added poof gave for a more dramatic and Mexican Senorita feel (which I love).  The pic is with a mermaid slip underneath which has 3 added layers of crinolin which was a bit much.  Since I'm 5'10", I'm letting my shoe height dictate how much crinoline I add, if any, to avoid the added cost of hemming. I'm in my bare feet in this pic and can only wear an .5" heel with the full 3 layer crinoline slip. I can wear 3" heel if I forgo the slip altoghether. 

 

I can't wait to see yout DIY coral shoes.
