    @Lovebird61:  I really like the way that looks. I don’t know that I would try to do it myself, but I really like the way that looks.

    I would not experiment with my wedding gown, I would hire a tailor for that work.  Mainly becaue of the organza silk, it’s quite delicate.  I like your idea of covering the zipper up with buttons, very pretty and it adds your own personal touch.  I’m not sure of how I feel about the buttons going all the way down the train though. I really like that look on a satin gown, but I’m not sure if I like it on an organza train. Especially because the bodice of your gown is so beautiful, the buttons may be a bit distracting.
