- Wedding: October 2012
Just wanted to post this to thank all you lovely ladies who have talked some sense into me and my Ella Rosa BE123 dress. The last few months have felt like such a roller coaster with me not knowing whether I should keep it or not, but after all your positive feedback, I was able to take a step back and recognize all the reasons I liked this gown in the first place (the simple elegance, the fit, the classic yet modern feel, etc.)
I went to an amazing seamstress today who helped me to better envision the dress for the day of the wedding and calm me about some of the things I was nervous about. She blinged me up with an amazing pearl/crystal sash and the second I saw myself, I knew it was game over (it stopped looking like a “night gown” and felt like a wedding dress!). With the sash tied in the back in a small bow, I don’t even mind the butt so much! 😉 I think it’s an easy way to distract from my booty and camouflage some bits I’m not crazy about. AND my mom actually cried when the veil went on, which was awesome, because my mom not liking the dress was also holding me back.
I am SO RELIEVED to have dress shopping behind me, finally :)))))
What do you guys suggest for hair/jewelery (I love pearls but not sure if I should go with a full pearl necklace or just something similar to what I have on in the photos)..Also, full hair with volume since the dress is slim, or nice side bun is enough? Satin bolero or an angora cardigan? (Wedding is in October – image below)
Again, thanks to you all for your encouragement during this craziness! I’m sure some of you are getting sick of seeing me post about the dress, so hopefully this is it!! 🙂
