    Here are some pictures with me in it. Note the the best pics because the sample dress was a couple sizes to small but you get the effect.  Also this is not the veil since they didn't have the right veil that matched my lace but very close.  I really wanted a lace dress with some kind of strap as I'm busty up top and also wanted a mermaid cut with a fun bottom and this dress was perfect for me.  What do you guys think?

     

    I love the straps of this dress and the belt. It's great for your bust. Can I be honest? I think a lace veil clashes and you should go with a more simple veil without a lace trim but if you want a little something on it, you can get a veil with rhinestones on the trim or rhinestones scattered throughout. My dress was bust like this and had a lot going on. Your dress seems to have a textured change on the bottom. I think the lace on the veil too makes it look so busy and takes away from you. Just my opinion, hope you aren't offended. I love veils so even though I think a flower clip goes great with this dress, I can't discourage you from a veil totally lol. I think they look super in pictures.

    Thanks for being honest, its cool I actually agree the lace veil is a little much with the lace dress.  I tried on two veils a much simpler one with no lace or embelishments and the one in the picture.  I'm still not sure what i'm doing yet about the veil but I have time to think about it.  I always wanted a lace veil because I thought it looked romantic and very spanish which was the look I was going for but it might have to change that.  I agree with a veil looking good in pictures I mostly just want to wear it for the ceremony and for pictures on the beach.

      Whew! Ok LOL I am always scared to be honest on these boards. I love how I can look at different styles of dresses and like them for different reasons. I could never wear a simple gown or a poofy ball gown- but I love the way they look on others. I like your gown because it has a lot going on- I like variety- but mostly since I cannot decide and stick to one style myself. I like a visually stimulating dress and yours certainly is that. How are you planning to wear your hair? You need to showcase those straps! I had straps too but I'm not a fan of up do's for my face so I did half up and half down. If you won't wear the veil long, I guess it doesn't matter. I love the romantic feel of lace and wanted a mantilla cathedral veil but it was too jarring with my dress.

        LOL No, honesty is good that's what the board is for feedback and information.  Yeah I'm not a ball gown or simple gown person myself I needed a little fun with my dress I mean you only get to wear a wedding dress once (hopefully) so I wanted something different.  I'm not sure yet on the hair but maybe up for the cermony very soft looking so you can see the straps and the back of the dress which has nice buttons going  down the back with a simple veil might look nice.  Then for the reception put my hair down and leave it in soft beachy waves.  Half up Half down could work too but I might be too hot for the ceremony if I have it down.  I love the mantilla veil that was what I always wanted but things change and it doesn't go with my dress also I'm getting married at the resort in front of a gazebo I feel like the mantilla might be more suitable for a church setting.  So much to think about.
