Very pretty!!

The beading does look a little too dark. Can they add sparkle by using sequins and clear/white beading?

Also, will the zipper be covered by anything?

Other than those 2 things, I think it looks great!

It looks really good! I agree about the beading, it does look like random dark silver sequins in some places. It might also be a nice touch to add buttons over the zipper.

It’s really lovely. I really like the straps & the neckline. I love the sparkliness of your dress, I’d add more.

@mepayne:  I think you made a really great choice by removing the beads they just didn’t look right. Other than that its seriously stunning you must be thrilled.

I can’t wait to see it on you:))))

Yeah I would use crystal or clear beading, those looks sliver. Maybe another layer of crinoline.. or a slip just for a touch of body in the skirt.. but that’s hard to say without seeing it on. It looks fab though!

What a beautiful dress! I have been debating if I want to get a dress online, and there seems to be a lot of good reviews for Fabulous U. I am looking forward to your update when you get the dress!

Those are definitely silver sequins, sewn on with a clear seed bead in the center to hold it on.  That fabric is very popular with TheFabulousU – it is all over their Facebook on samples, and it came thru on my gown that was supposed to be made in ivory with gold adornment (and I specifically said NO sequins…).  For those who have seen my other posts about TheFabulousU, yes I am still bitter about the whole experience.
