Thanks for starting a thread! this is great! What are you doing for jewelery for this dress? and what about the bustle? I’m not getting the dress taken in for another 9 months, so I have lots of time!

@hockeygirl13:  I am lucky to have lots of time to plan, but I’m also tired of waiting! I want this to be happening now 🙂 As for my dress, it was supposed to be in by now, ( they had one left in my size at the warehouse in Ontario) but it isn’t in yet. 

As for accessories, I bought a belt and a veil (finger tip length) when I bought my dress, so those are done, and I bought my shoes. I’m stuck on jewelery though… this is what i’m thinking of for a necklace: http://www.etsy.com/listing/129925650/wedding-necklace-double-strands But i’m not sure if it matches. As for earings… I’m not a huge fan of them… I only wear studs so when I wear dangling ones it can be uncomfortable, but I do have really nice diamond studs my fiance bought me for christmas that I wear all the time, that I could wear during the wedding too…. not sure how to go on that one. 

Anyway, here are some pictures od me in my dress and my accessories:

The belt I bought (you can see a little of the veil I bought too):

Oh lovely girls! Can’t wait to see ur pictures. I don’t have my fitting until end of September. My big thing is I don’t know what type of belt I want. I was leaning towards beaded. Do any of you have pics with that?

Another ST Jillian bride here! My dress won’t be in until the end of the month and I’m so excited to try it on again!

@shopaholic85:  I love your belt choice! I think that necklace would go really nicely with it, and then your diamond studs to finish. Are you wearing your hair up or down?

@hockeygirl13:  I am thinking the same for accessories, long sparkly earrings (my hair will be down) and nothing around my neck. And maybe a sparkly belt?

This is my dress too! I don’t have any pictures of it though because I really don’t want FI to find them!

I had my first fitting 2 weeks ago and I love my dress so much! I did not need a lot of alterations. The one thing I had changed that you can’t see on the model but can see on people wearing it is that little space/opening in the lace on the right side. I didn’t like how it opened up and made the front look not straight so they are “closing” the gap. Hopefully it looks like I imagined it at my second fitting next week.

I was originally planning on wearing a blush belt but I think I actually like the one that came with it. I’ll have to make a decision on that next week. 

I am not wearing a veil because I am doing a DW so I am wearing a flower heairpiece. For jewellery, I am wearing diamond earrings and a tear drop diamond pendant.

Thank you so much for starting this thread! I tried on countless gowns and not one felt perfect until ST Jillian!

 Even though it wasn’t the big ball gown that I thought I’d always wanted I knew as soon as I put it on that it was THE dress and I couldn’t wait to marry my fiance in it! I ordered it on the spot but still have to wait another 2 months before it arrives and it is so hard to decide on accessories without seeing it.

It already comes with the gorgeous flower belt but I believe it would suit a simple yet statement belt in a pastel coloured silk sash with some sparkled jewel on it. So I am excited to see what all you other bees decide to go with while I am waiting for my dress to arrive!

I just ordered this dress today and am so excited and relieved! I am that crazy girl who wants to make sure I went everywhere and saw every dress before I said yes and this was my dress! I think I am going to change the top a bit because I do not have much up there and I felt it sat a little high….How does it fit!? I ordered a size 6. Im about 125lbs and size 4 in jeans….I want it tight fitting though…

for those of you looking for belt styles…I tried this simple one and liked it! It barely looks like a belt but adds more sparkle. Id wear it a bit higher then the pic… still not sure if I am going to wear one or not.
