I ordered my dress back in October and it finally came in. I am around a size 12/14 and the sample was a bridal size 6. I loved the dress when I ordered it but I couldn’t help be be worried that it wouldn’t look right on a girl with curves. I had the typical bride worries of “Is it going it fit?” and “Will I still love it?”. My worries are gone. I am so happy. The dress fit beautifully.
Veil opinion needed–I was initially wanting a birdcage veil and flower but today for fun I tried on a mantilla veil that was on clearance. What do you girls think about the veil? Unfortunatly my “twigs and honey” birdcage veil and flower did not come in time for me to try on with the dress.
Enjoy the pics.

It looks beautiful on you! I sort of think the manilla veil might be too much, I think the dress would look great with a birdcage veil!

Beautiful! I like all the flounces. I think I’d go with the birdcage veil/flower because it has a playful feel that goes with the dress. The mantilla veil feels busy with the bottom of the dress.

It looks great!! I like the veil you’re wearing, but I think the birdcage may compliment the dress more. Either way- beautiful!

Wow, you look beautiful in that dress! I agree with the others about the veil. Your dress looks *perfect* on a curvy girl! Great choice.

You look so pretty! 🙂 I love the flower!!! I think if you were to do a veil the birdcage would be better….I think it might be a little too much with your beautiful dress

Thank you ladies. Once I took the pictures I couldn’t wait to share them with the hive. I ended up buying the mantilla since it was on clearance and will sell whatever veil I don’t want. You can tell from the pictures I was having an issue deciding on hair and accessories. The first one has a veil and flower. 2nd one only veil. 3rd one only flower. haha Decisons…

Oooh…such a great dress! (Poor you, having to wait from OCTOBER for it to come in. You must’ve been going nuts.) I agree that the mantilla is a bit much with the great detailing of your gown. I’d wear a really sheer, simple veil. The hair flower is cute too.
