    Ladies - Thanks for all the input regarding sash placement.  Looks like the natural waist is the way to go.  This definitely eases my mind for my first fitting on Saturday since I won't be able to get any feedback during the appoinment except from my seamstress.

      I am so torn!!!  I have a beaded Empire waist and I absolutely love it for my dress... although mine is mermaid also, its satin... and a sweetheart.

       

      For your dress, I'm loving the natural waist!  I don't know if its how delicate the lace is and a natural waist is more feminine.. or if it's how the lace "pops" out at the bottom...  but I definitely don't think you can go wrong with either!

        I like the natural waist. I feel like it draws attention to just the right places.

          Natalie- I hope it all works out for you! This shouldn't be so stressful! I'm sure you will find something you absolutely love. I've learned in this whole process to listen to my instincts as well because the times I didn't- I came up losing. I'm pissed with mysel bc I allowed myself to be swept away at a veil and headpiece show and spent waaaaay too much on my veil and headpiece. I could have saved a couple of hundred dollars buying on Etsy or Off the rack. I think we all take a few missteps during this process because we have so many opinions being hurled at us and an immense amount of pressure. Hope it works out in the end for you. Follow your heart! Good luck.

          Hi Ladies. I was just wondering if any of you had any feedback on selling your dress? Have any of you done it and was it easy/successful/used preowned wedding dress website to sell it?  I just got back from my first time trying my dress on. Ordered it back in August, sort of under pressure...and now that it is in there are so many issues Im just afraid i made a big mistake. It is HUGE...about three whole sizes too big, plus I am 5'4 and it is made for about 5'8....because it is made so big everything else is bigger too so the train seems out of control and the tulle under the skirt is massive because most of it is being poofed out from four inches of it sitting on the ground. I dont know...it just was not a good visit at all. Even though it is a nice designer dress I just dont know if all of it can be worked out and I am thinking about trying to sell it and just buying something off the rack. I have no idea. I feel so down about it after waiting all this time and spending the money on it when i probably should have just gone with my gut and got something cheaper...but anyways, just wondering if anyone has had good luck with selling because I really don't want to waste money.

              Hmmm, interesting perspective and I'm inclined to agree. Thanks. 

               

              And thank you to the other brides who have chimed in today!

                this is a random shot from my wedding but i wanted to find a picture that my guests took ( i dont have the professional ones yet ) that shows the color of my dress that is a light ivory and his shirt is white.... he was supposed to get an off white shirt but he went shopping with the guys and got white... i was worried but since my dress is light ivory and his suit is khaki i dont think it matters at all so dont stress it ;)
