    I’m practically drooling over how gorgeous your dress is. I love the idea of a white ribbon and then a grey ribbon. And I love BOTH shoes πŸ™‚

    I responded to your message before seeing this. Oh my gosh! You look so gorgeous! And the dress definitely looks much better with the under bustle πŸ™‚

    The dress looks nice with the white belt. It gives the dress a different look so I think it will work with having it on for the ceremony and  then off for the reception. Oh, and I voted for sling backs. They look more fun πŸ™‚

    Love your dress!! It was the 2nd dress I tried on! I love the idea of the white ribbon! I am doing a pearl beaded sash for our ceremony and having a colored grosgrain ribbon for photos and the reception.

    If you can’t find suitable navy shoes… I’m not sure how comfortable you are with DIY, and if you like the idea I’d glitter shoes… But that’s one way of ‘coloring’ non porous shoes! You can still spray the flowery bits!

    @futuremrspaulino:  Hi! Thanks for answering my pm. When you said the seamstress is going to pull the bust, did she say from the seams or did she pin it somewhere else? The seamstress I saw was going to put darts in, to make it lay better on the bust, but I’m worried about the beading pattern being disturbed.

    Oh, and the bustle points I meant like the points where the skirt will be raised and attached to the skirt when bustled. πŸ™‚

    Beautiful dress! I like the idea of having a white sash for the ceremony and a more fun one for the reception.
