    It sure has paid off.

    It looks even better on you than on the model. I love the black sash with it.

    Wow, It takes a lot to carry a dress like that but it honestly looks like it was made for you!

    @aliciaspinnet:  

    I love it! Not something I would have ever thought I would like so it’s surprising that I like it! Looks much better on you than on the model!

    @aliciaspinnet:  Aw, why such negative poll results? You look lovely (and I’m really liking the blingy belt).

    I say stick with the type of veil you posted. A longer one might make the dress look frumpy or boring (it sounds almost counterintuitive, but I think the more you cover/add things to the dress, the greater chance you have of detracting from the dress). Less seems to be more. 

    And your figure is absolutely wonderful, very feminine (with a tiny waist).

    @aliciaspinnet:  I love it! But I definitely prefer it without the black sash, I’m not a big ‘bling’ person, but I think it livens the dress up a bit. It also makes it more bridal in a really good way.

    I really like it!! I prefer the bling sash over the black sash, but think it could go a little higher up on your dress, as to emphasize your waistline. But after the alterations, I think it’ll definitely look good!
