        I love this dress, great choice. When it comes to hemming the lace, mine did cost a lot to get hemmed, I am 5' 1.5" so I also need a lot taken off. I also cut out the material at the back (the satin) and just had the lace layer as my train and I loved it, just a thought. So, be prepared for it to be a bit expensive. 1 thing, I would say do not get it done at the bridal shop, they charge waaaay too much to do it there. Find a seamstress who has done bridal gowns before and she will charge you a lot less. That is what I did and it cost me $225 instead of $500

          I considered finding someone other than the bridal store. Thanks for the tip Julie. It's going to need a lot of alterations. It's sad that I have to stand on a stool for it to be the correct length. haha

          Thanks for all the compliments ladies. Choosing the dress is so hard and as I watched all the beautiful dresses posted on the forum I couldn't help think if I had made the right decision. It's definitely not the traditional white, so I prayed I made the right choice. I think it will look great next to the sand though.

                      Your dress is so perfect...the colour is amazing and will look amazing on the beach at Las Caletas. The details are so nice and you look beautiful in it. I also have a light gold dress and was worried about it not being tradional but after seeing yours no more worries :)
