This week I was able to get in touch with a local bride selling her Rhianna Royale in diamond white and she said I could try it on. I’ve been very very nervous about ordering it in Light Gold because really, it is very dark in person, and I am just not a Gold person. I wanted silver jewelry and I already had amazing blue shoes that I didn’t want to get rid of! So I drove up today and crossed my fingers…
Ahhhhmazing! It was everything I wanted! So romantic…Now I get to have my lavender crinoline, silver jewlery and my blue shoes!
So excited!! I sent my mom the pictures and she freaked, for some reason it made her really excited to get started on the wedding and find her dress to go with it, so I think that’s her equivalent of tearing up:P
The Light Gold is beautiful, but I would be missing out on so many things I wanted to do and all I ever wanted was an Ivory dress. And her wedding pictures were beautiful! I could see all the detail in every picture, so my fears about that are eased. So this will be my last dress post because I’m DONE! Yayyyyyy!!!

@MissTatas: hahah I have no idea if FH will be able to love this dress as much as me, as he’s a pretty plain clothes kinda person, but omgosh its fabulous 🙂 FH says I will never know if he hated part of the wedding because that’s part of being a good husband, haha!
Thanks everyone! I can’t wait to place the order today. I would have bought it from the local girl but she told me nightmare story about how much this dress cost her to get altered (more than the dress!!) so I’m gonna go ahead and order it in petite.

@vintagequeen19: I’ve been rethinking that dress ever since I ordered it. I liked how vintage it was, but the style wasn’t good on me. It was drop waist, and I’m only 5′. My new bridal consultant said she wouldn’t ever have recommended the dress to me. I was lied to about how the sizing works and that the drop waist would come up in my size. I didn’t really like the sheer train and I didn’t think it flattered my body at all. I wanted to do a lot of things to it (add sleeves, get a sash,etc) and I started thinking if I want to change the dress this much, then it’s not my dress. You pull it off great though!

That’s my dress too!!! I ordered it last month, also in diamond white. The gold looked ok on me, but the diamond white looked so much better. I’m also too pale for the regular white, so I’m glad Maggie had something in between. 🙂
You look so beautiful in it! May I ask what size you tried on to get the corset to look like that? I think I’m about your size or a little bigger, and I ordered a 4 (although I’m 5’7″ so I did not order petite!).
Seeing these gorgeous pictures of you just reaffirmed for me that I picked the right dress. I like your idea of colored shoes and petticoats too, hmmmm… 😉

ahhhh this is my dress too! and i rarely EVER see anyone with this dress. I’m soo sad im at work and your pictures wont upload on my computer 🙁 i want to see it on another bride! I ordered mine about 4 months ago and it should be coming in in about a week 🙂
The only thing different is i got the champagne/gold dress. im not a fan of bright white dresses… ANY bright white dresses, but thats just me. i never even saw this dress in white and i fell in LOVE. I naturally have a tan glow so the champagne/gold looked so good with my skin.
