    Here are a few pics of my dress! The lace jacket was removable… so I was able to take it off for the reception. I got soooo many compliments from people who kept saying they were so sick of brides in strapless dresses. I wore my hair in a low chignon because it doesn’t hold curl well and I knew it would look horrible by the end of the night otherwise.

    Here are a couple of mine pics in a dress with sleeves.  I chose to wear my hair down mainly because I decided to have an intricate brooch in my hair in lieu of a veil.

    I liked it down though it was so humid out that day that by the time we hit the reception, most of the curl had fallen out.

    Yep!  I’m wearing a beaded lace 3/4 sleeve jacket with my dress (the one in the picture is slightly too big and the wrong colour, but you get the general idea.  My dress hasn’t been taken in yet either, hence the cleavage dropping in to view (it kept falling down at my first fitting!)

    I’m wearing my hair up high, with a long veil tucked underneath. 

    Here’s my dress and jacket;

     

    I’m not wearing a necklace, but I have some fairly blingtastic earrings;

     

     

    And my hair inspiration is somewhere between the two below (sweep across the forehead, but a nice bit of oomphy bump in the back.  I want it fairly sleek and simple so it doesn’t detract from the dress.  I have a strict ‘no curls’ policy in place. 

    My hair trial is in two days, so we’ll see how it turns out!

    @Laurengrapes:  

    I’m wearing a 3/4 sleeve bolero for the ceremony and will be wearing my hair half up. 🙂 I’ll post pics when I do the trial.
