    You look absolutely gorgeous! I got a dress that is pretty formal for the beach, and I think anything goes for your wedding!

PLUS its only one day of my life - I dont mind being a tad warm!! :D "YoLo" !

          No I am not adding a bustle. I am actually taking at least half of the train off and taking out the tulle underneath the skirt so it is more flowy and hangs. Not sure if the makes sense but the bridal consultant showed me how it would look and I loved it! More simple and easy to walk and dance with :)

            I would love to see the finished product, when are your alterations?

              For sure! The dress should be in this month or next month, then I will get it altered. I bought my dress in Portland (I live in Colorado) and I am still deciding if I am going to get it altered where I bought it or bring it back and get it altered here. So I might not have the final product until January (with making trips). But I will definitely put pictures up when I do!

                Muffin,

                I just realized I can post a picture without me wearing the dress! So even if I do get it altered there I can get a pic around October :)

                    Well, here is the final product! I wish I had a more full length photo...but the photog images aren't in yet.

                     

                    A few words of advice:

                    If you can get away with it...DON'T wear crinoline. I'm telling you, I had sweat running down my legs, and I smelled like a field worker b/c that sucker doesn't breathe at all! I peeled out of it as soon as my beach wedding was over, and just wore the dress w/out the petticoat for the rest of the night. I wish I had saved the $70 and not bought it.

                     

                    I did not transport my dress in the hanging bag. I knew we'd have to carry it all over the airport, and put it on a shuttle...and it was heavy and cumbersome and I had to contend w/that crinoline monster. I also heard from some people that the flight attendants aren't always so accommodating when handling wedding dresses. At the suggestion of my aunt (who is very smart) I rolled up the dress, in the Davids Bridal bag, and packed it in a suitcase by itself with the petticoat and my shoes. As soon as I got to the hotel, I unpacked it, and hung it up in the closet. It looked perfect, and we ironed the sash with the curling iron..lol. So on the way home, I did the same thing...and was able to pack some of the souvenirs we brought back with us. Totally worked out perfectly and in the end only cost me $25 for the extra bag. Totally worth it to not have to worry about it, if you ask me.

                     

                    I'm thinking I'm going to sell it. I loved it, and it was perfect...but really, what am I going to do with it now? I felt so beautiful in it...and never dreamed I'd be able to pull off a strapless gown. I'd kind of like to pass that feeling on to someone else.

                     

                    It's a bridal 20W, but taken in about an inch on either side and in the back. I wear a 14-16 in street clothes. It could easily be taken in more if needed to fit someone w/less of a chest or smaller waist. It's a gorgeous, light organza, and almost looks like linen. Perfect for a beach wedding.

                     

                    If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to make a deal!
