Okay, so…. about a month ago, I found my dream dress. It is everything that I dreamed it would be…
David’s Bridal has a layaway program (THANK GOD) and I am paying the final $432.00 today!
Next step is to see if it needs to be altered! WHOO HOO!!!!

Brought it home! Hid it in the closet so Mr. Sideways8 doesn’t see it. 🙂 While there I had the alterations lay look at it to see if I need any changes. Because I had thought to wear boots, she said at least three inches will need to be removed. That cuts into the lace! So, I tried on heels. Lo & behold…. No hem adjustment! But I’ll need a bustle for the reception.
I didn’t think the dress would fit as well as it did! I was worried I’d need more. So I just have to get shoes and a bra or have bra pads put in.
And of course, the bustle.
Now to figure out what to do with my hair. 🙁
Veil or no veil?

@sideways8: would you consider a birdcage? I love the vintage twist they add to modern dresses 🙂

I was making a birdcage veil and am stuck as to how to do it with the hairstyle that I have chosen. This was my grandmother and I always loved this photo not just because it was of her but because of her hairstyle. So, I am hoping that the birdcage veil would work but after looking at some of the photos of other veils, I was stuck in doubt. 🙂 What do you think?

That’s such a great feeling, to finally pay off on something like our gown. Congrats and a birdcage veil would be a nice look!
