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.
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?
Guess who's dress is in?!?!?! I'm so excited! I had started doubting my choice and was considering changing it - until I had it on again! It's still a little tight, but can be let out - and I have time to lose a few more pounds....AND there was NO way I was going to wear a veil - until I put this one on. I didn't have a 'moment' while I was looking for my dress. My moment came when the dress came in and I added the veil .
I was able to try my dress on today for the first time since it came in...and it fit almost perfectly... Like other brides, there were a few times that I doubted my dress choice, but when I saw it today and put it on, I fell in love all over again... Here is my dress
