I didn't want you much of a poof bc we are boating back to a private island to get married and just didn't think it would work. It's such a timeless dress!

     

    I'll also be doing coral in my bouquet and shoes. DIY coral glitter shoes! :)

     

    Thanks for all the open opinions! It's nice to have the honesty!!! ;)

    I'm in Portland. Since my Fi and I are both transplants we decided to have a DW in Puerto Morelos, MX.

     

    I thought the added poof gave for a more dramatic and Mexican Senorita feel (which I love).  The pic is with a mermaid slip underneath which has 3 added layers of crinolin which was a bit much.  Since I'm 5'10", I'm letting my shoe height dictate how much crinoline I add, if any, to avoid the added cost of hemming. I'm in my bare feet in this pic and can only wear an .5" heel with the full 3 layer crinoline slip. I can wear 3" heel if I forgo the slip altoghether. 

     

    I can't wait to see yout DIY coral shoes.

    Posted Image For the front they are making it into a sweet heart neck line. They are taking it in because I'm a size 6 and I bought a sample gown that was a size 12!! They assured me they can make it perfect or else I wouldn't have bought it! All you ladies look so good in ur dresses and they are all so different I love it!

      You look stunning! I LOVE the poof on you. Very Spanish type of feel! The veil looks great too. I might do a birdcage or a big fabric flower in my hair. Not completely sure yet. Did you get the belt too? I think I'll go with a beaded/blingy belt but am going to make my own since they are ridiculously expensive! My dress is a little long without the poof so I'll probably suck it up and wear wedges for the beach wedding (you won't be able to see them) and heels for my AHR. My Fianc© is 6'3 and I'm only 5'8, so I don't have to worry about heel height. 

       

      Congrats again! That dress really looks amazing on you! You're right about how different it looks ok 2 separate people! :)

          The verdict is till out on the veil, I mostly want one for photos ops and and it's the cherry on top for my complete bridal look/feel. I went with a different sash since I wasn't in love with the one that came with the Rivoli and went with this.  The pic of the sash was one another dress I was considering, but I fell in love with it and have high hopes of it working perfectly with my Rivoli:

          I love this dress; without question one of my top five favs that I've seen here on BDW.  I loved the mauve but the ivory looks beautiful and bridal... Fantastic choice and you look amazing in it!

            I love that sash!!!!  So pretty!  I feel the same about the veil.  I think a reason I don't want to wear one is because it's windy by the water and I've seen them out of control in pictures!  I don't want it wrapping around my face as I say my vows!  But I do want one in some of the pictures.  I'm considering doing a side pony and IDK if a veil would look right with that anyway.

             

            May brides, have you started alterations yet?

              It's Hayley Paige's Nina (HP6254). [Be careful doing a Google image search on that -- there was a porn star with the same name!]
