It really is a different experience than looking at a picture or seeing it on a hanger. Yesterday was my first fitting and we killed two birds with one stone by attending a veil and headpiece trunk show. I tried on my dress to make sure it fit (WOOOOW was it tight and HEAVY!...I have to lose about 5 pounds to be comfortable in it. It fits- but I can't sit comfortably in it). The sample wasn't heavy because it wasn't my correct size so it was just hanging but my actual dress- I think might weigh 10 pounds. I did not know it would be that heavy I will probably melt in July. That wasn't too well thought out but I guess you only have one wedding LOL For the veil and headpiece show, I put the sample on so I wouldn't ruin my dress. I went with a cathedral veil with a rhinestone trim. I got a separate headband so I can take the veil off for my reception.

    Originally I wanted to wear chandelier earrings and a teardrop necklace, but because I have a lot going on- I will probably wear simple pearl drop earrings and no necklace at all. You cant tell, but my dress has some pearl accents on the straps and on the bottom. I also decided to forego these ultra blinged out shoes I wanted. I am going to go with a plain pair of shoes- besides NO ONE can see my shoes under this thing. I was walking around in tube socks in these pictures lol. Going to my fitting made me super amped about the wedding! All I need to do is add cups to the dress because I can't wear a bra since the back is cut slightly below the bra strap. 

     

     

     

     

     

     

    what a beautiful gown!

        EVKnowsitall- you look amazing!!!!!! Love the veil choice with it! I can't imagine you losing 5lbs for it though you look tiny as it is in the pictures. But I guess for comfort you have to... Either way such a beautiful dress and I agree that the simple earrings and no necklace is the way to go for accessories. My dress is like yours with a lot going on and I don't want to look too busy so I'm also doing no necklace and pearl earrings but I am also doing a pear and rhinestone bracelet. I've also noticed that with about 85% of pictures with the dresses on the models that the models don't wear necklaces so I like that look lol

          Thanks so much Katryne, Uhura, Choco and Dazey! I'm still on my high after trying it on. Dazey- I lost a lot of weight prior to becoming engaged because my doctor told me I was borderline obese. Thanks for the compliment! Lol I think the dress is a little tight because I tried it on back in April and I was so stressed out that I lost a little too much weight and that's how I was measured, so since then I've gained some back. No biggie. I'm not even worried about it becaus ethe holidays are upon us and there's no way I'm losing 5 pounds now lol But I agree. I absolutely adore your dress- you're a bride after my heart. I'm a little over the top but there are so many elements of our wedding that are toned down so I felt like-screw it I'm going all out on my dress. Ou church is all white with a grey marble floor and I don't plan on decorating it. I want it to be simple, and Our reception will be on the beach. I though the dress was lighter for travel though- but oh well lol I'm excited about taking some pics on the beach with my veil.
          Happily married to the love of my life- since July 5, 2013

                      Okay girls here is my story... I have been searching for a convetible dress since the beginning. Last week my mom got a call telling her about the a bridal store that was going out of business in a nearby town - where everything was 90% off! I did not imagine I would find the perfect dress for me, but I DID! Best of all - I literally paid $87 for the dress of my dreams! I had to take it home that day ((since the store was closing)) and will have to find someone to do my alterations... but definitely worth it!

                       

                      I don't have any pictues of the dress short, but you can see exactly where it comes off.
