I know I haven’t been around very much lately. I’ve been so busy busy busy, but I did manage to get a first and second dress fitting of MY dress (as in the one that now belongs to ME) when I was home in January. These pics are from the second fitting after the bodice/hips/shoulders were taken in. I am so thrilled with it!! It still needs to be hemmed and bustled.
After it was pinned up to be hemmed (it was super long):
I had a bouquet of dried lavender that I brought with me to see how it looked. I plan on having fresh lavender for my bouquet.
The back of the dress is gorgeous- I love the lace. Also, I don’t know if I’m going to try to find a pair of pearl drop earrings, or stick with the pearl studs. The necklace is one that FI gave me for Christmas two years ago. It goes with the dress perfectly (and he doesn’t know I’m planning on wearing it)!
I love how the shoes pop with this dress 🙂
Better view of the purple shoes (and the matching nail polish that I just happened to find!). For those that want to know, they are “Evelixa” by Nina:
Did I mention that I LOVE THIS DRESS? Just checking. 🙂

@Jazziberry: You look gorgeous and the dress is beautiful!
P.S. I would totally go with the stud earrings. I think you surprising your FI by wearing the necklace is so stinkin’ sweet!

@Mrs.tobe: Thanks so much, Lady! And you do think I should stick with the studs? That’s what I thought, too, but my mom and the dress-shop-tailor-lady both told me to go for the pearl drop earrings. It wouldn’t hurt my feelings at all to just stick with the studs I’ve got. 🙂

@floridabride12: #3 for Team Stud! I might as well just stick with the one’s I’ve got. Hmm..but maybe I’ll add a poll to see what everyone thinks.
Thanks so much everyone!! 🙂 🙂
@breezybri19: Do you have your dress yet? Because if I haven’t mentioned it, I LOVE THIS DRESS, and it is super comfortable. And very pretty. 😉
