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
