    THANK YOUUUU! :) It really is such an amazing feeling. I NEVER thought I'd have it. I watch 'Say Yes to the Dress' ALL THE TIME..and they always talk about having that moment and kept saying 'there's no way i'll have that - i'll just find something that looks decent and go with it'...I was SO WRONG!!
    And now that i have an actual dress - i have a literal goal for my weightloss. eeeeeeeeeeeee - July can't come soon enough! I'm already stoked for my 1st fitting!!

          I picked up my wedding dress last week after the alterations were complete. During the course of my engagement I have changed my mind twice on my wedding dress. This dress I just picked up was dress #3. And I almost changed my mind again while it was being altered. Can you ladies take a look and give opinons please? I went with a sait fit and flare mermaid style dress with a suttle sweetheart neckline and bow detail from Davids Bridal.  For my alterations I had a corset lace up back added and a 9 point bustle that flows with style of the bottom of the dress.

            I was in the same boat. Although mine is not a complete mermaid. I am also thinking about skipping the veil and putting a tropical flower in my hair

              This dress is beautiful on you!  I love the fit and flair mermaid style, you have the figure to pull it off gorgeously.  I be the back looks great too, I wouldnt even think to put a corset back on it  - just because I have no imagination, lol.  But I bet it balances the traditional look of the front of the dress and adds that extra sexiness of corset in the back.  Perfect!

               

              I put a deposit on my own dress, and keep thinking what if I made the wrong choice.  But, everytime I think about how I felt in the dress I ended up going with, I once again am re-assured.  I can't wait for it to actually come in and all the pieces start to really come together!

                Ladies:  I'm struggling with deciding whether I want to do a veil or just go with a tropical flower in my hair.  My dress is a mermaid style with loose ruffles at bottom, and sweetheart neckline - very little beading.  I think I've finally come to a compromise with myself - haha.  I'll do a fingertip length veil for the ceremony which will have crystals on it that match a few crystals on the dress (very little), and for the reception, I'll put in a colorful tropical flower in my hair for a more festive look.  My FI is a bit more traditional than I am so I know he'll want to see the veil for the ceremony.  

                 

                Elissae:  maybe u can do the same and have the best of both worlds?
