    Wow that's great it all worked out for you! Really turned out beautiful!

    I paid $500 to have it made. A steal since alterations alone are a couple hundred. She paid for the lining, little bit of tulle, buttons, etc.
    It might look really heavy but it wasn't at all. I was a bit hot dancing but that is to be expected. The dress moved freely and I never once felt constricted or uncomfortable.
    I got a bit dirty at the bottom but we weren't in the sand that much. Still deciding what to do - clean and preserve it or not.

    The best thing was I wanted a lace that was $260 per yard. Fell in love with it to only find out they didn't have enough and they called France but couldn't get any. Kind of glad that didn't work out! Ha!

        Thanks again for all the advice!!

          That is so great!  I don't think lace would be heavy at all and it looks perfect for the beach.  I think the lace you finally chose was perfect!
