I have some pictures @   http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/my-japanese-garden-wedding-pic-heavy-recap

There aren’t a whole lot of dress pics because I didn’t want to post close-up face shots of our bridal party, so if you want more/better pics, let me know and I could easily come up with some more.

When I picked up my dress, it was a pretty standard A-line – maybe a bit slimmer then most, but definatley not too slim.  I actually wanted it to have a slimmer, slight mermaid fit, so I had it altered.  I’m a bit curvy through the hip and thigh, so I had mine let out through the hips and just into the top of my thighs and then had it taken through the the rest of my leg

I wore the Karena Royale for our wedding 2 months ago.  I wanted to make the silhouette slimmer through the legs, but since I had to have so many other alterations done, i decided to leave it as is.  Here’s a link to my post with some pics and slide show of our wedding–http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/our-beach-wedding-and-ttd-in-mx-101310-some-of-the-pro-pics

Good luck with whatever you decide 🙂

@SLS79-the KR looks gorgeous on you, dress twin!!

This is a contender for me, but I didnt like the neckline, maybe I shouldnt be so picky about things you can alter. But I loved how it was lace with some sparkle

I also wasnt 100% sure how much I loved bow in FRONT with a decorative piece..

Was the lace touched at all to make it have the mermaid fit or did your seamstress just alter the underlay?

I got the karena royale dress and I was very pleased! the dress is absolutly beautiful its elegant and timeless. I tweeked the dress to fit my style and i especially love the fact that its a corset dress and it can fit most body types i found that if you dont have any hips its probably not the right dress for you. The dress has sequin that glisten in the sun and it adds so much beauty to the dress. I highly reccomend it its definatly a winner in my book!Smile

Hi everyone! I am freaking out because I just had my first fitting and my wedding is a month away. I lost weight from when I bought Karena Royale, but I noticed the corset is pushing up my back fat!! haha! Just wondering if any of you had the same problem and was able to fix with alterations? Thank you!
