    I say go for it too. It's really odd to me how many people think I have lost my mind for wanting to do it too. LOL I just figure if the dress is gets heavy it will be a good few hours of a work out which I am sure I will need from a weekend of drinks & food.

    I just had my 1st fitting last week.  I love my Paloma Blanca!

     

    I have decided to sew/attach my sash to my dress.  All we need to do is take in the upper bust sides so we can push "the girls" up a bit...and add an eyelet hook in the back as well as a bustle.  They will be sewing a bra into the dress - hence, the sloppiness up at the sweetheart/bust/lace line...there were pins and cups and all kinds of things going on in there at the time the photo was takem.  ;-)  LOL

     

     

    We leave in 44 days - I go back for fitting #2 March 5th.

    OMG thank you so much! That has helped so much!!! I will look on the website and call as well. Thank you! Did you end up getting this one at all?

     

    Thanks again!

It might be the fact that you are barefoot- which is perfect for a beach wedding or the fact that you look like a ballerina in it. I just think it is so whimsical and while I am normally not a fan of tulle, I love this dress. I love the waist, it looks great on your figure. This is a perfect destination wedding dress.

           

          Thanks! When I was choosing a dress I figured: since we are going for a non-traditional beach wedding, let's go for a "funny" dress. What I like about it myself is that it looks light, and from a practical side it's not going to be a hassle to get the wrinkles off the tulle. I'm thinking now that it could be just a little bit shorter, but on the other hand I like it as is and it's just not worth it going for alternations.

            Thank you so much ladies...(k032379, Jenny2014 & heater1214)!!!  My favorite part is the organza layering at the bottom of the dress...it reminds me of water ripples....and I feel like the dress with the small train down has such a mexican flare. xoxo  I am in the process of getting jewlery to match the detail on the sash.  No necklace, just big earrings and I am going to possibly layer some bracelets up my right wrist/arm.

             

            Here is a close up of the sash detail.

             



            This is beautiful on you. Love it!
