I got the necklace and earrings at the bridal shop and it doesnt have a designer name on it. Check out the bridal jewelry on etsy.com because there is some gorgeous stuff on it. I will try to put up a picture of my sash too. I have bought pretty much everything off of etsy. I am wearing red high heeled satin shoes. My fiance is Mexican and we are getting married in Playa del Carmen. I don’t have great pictures of me in the dress yet. This was the sample size so it doesnt fit great. I got my actual gown in and I think its even prettier and fits great!I have long red hair and plan to wear my hair down and wavy (gonna get extensions before the big day because my hair is thin). I plan on wearing a white rose with rhinestone on one side in my hair and then switch to a red rose for our mariachi wedding march and dancing…

The dress looks gorgeous on you too! My sash off of Estsy was $157 so if you REALLY love it you could always try to sell your other one. We are getting married outdoors in a small garden (but will also get photos on the beach). I never thought I would get a long veil but I wanted to look more “traditional Spanish.” I am incorporating a lot of Mexican/Spanish wedding traditions. I know the veil will get dirty but I won’t need it again. I actually think a fingertip length is more flattering to the figure because it hits at the waist. To be honest….I seriously considered a birdcage veil headpiece because I think they are so cool. Be careful about wearing a veil at the beach….its always breezy and the veil can literally get away from you (and be very distracting). Let me know your thoughts. Where are you getting married? I had bought another jewelry set but found one I liked better. if you would like me to post a pic of it, I will. You may like it. (Its beautiful but I decided to go with something more vintage looking). I can also tell you where I bought my jewelry and you can always call the store…

  • Wedding: August 2013

@jmlw7:  I have the Lavina as well! I am 5’1″ and I have bought 5″ blush pink jimmy choo pumps and an ivory chapel length two tier raw edge veil. I am thinking about trying on my grandmothers pearls and wearing them otherwise I have a beautiful gold chain and pearl pendant that I wear all the time that I may wear.

I have also bought a fishtail petticoat that I think I will wear with the dress. I think it make the dress a bit easier to walk in.

I am getting married in early August which is winter here in Aus so not sure what to do for a jacket. I think the dress will be fine for the day and I am thinking about maybe splurging on a nice ivory or bone coloured trench coat for later in the night that I could wear again. It is an outdoor marquee wedding.
