@fifiparis:  first of all… france is my favourite place on the planet, so i instantly worship you. second of all… dentelle is STUNNING. i don’t think the shoes are too much at all. they’re perfect. the dress is beautiful in it’s simplicity and i don’t think a shiny shoe and a sparkly headpiece would be too much at all. buuuuut i often err on the side of gaudy : ) so maybe get the other ladies’ advice!

I’m also going to have an intense bra struggle in the future. willow is BACKLESS and i am fairly busty. so i’m interested to see what the other girls suggest : )

Do you have pictures of you in dentelle?!

@mu_t:  I’m looking at azalea! (as you can see from my avatar). Care to send any pics, I’m pretty obsessed and would really like to see it on an actual bride.

@fifiparis:  i think it looks great together! im so excited to see more Justice of the Peace brides on the site. 

I have no idea what i will do about a bra either, my dress is low back, and low v neck so hopefully the sewn in cups will provide enough support or i dont know what ill do.

Oh you lovely ladies are so enthusiastic! It’s so nice to chat on here as I worry I’m boring my friends to tears and I also think they might think I’m crazy even considering paying 300€ for a head dress!

@lightmist the lady at my shop doesn’t like cups so that’s a worry. I tried one of those stick on backless bras but they are not great. Looking for a really low back bustier. 

@RexManningDay yes, my lady seems cool with it too, only problem with the dentelle is that it could make it a little short. Let me know how it goes. I cant believe you have your second fitting already – my dress doesn’t arrive until the 1st June!! What is your honeymoon route? Paris I hope! 

@Mu_t yes, let’s shares bra research! No pics but might sneak out of work this week to buy my shoos and then I’ll post them!

goodnight from Paris!

@princesslettuce14:  I don’t have any! The dress I tried on was WAYYYYYY too small so the pics were hideous on me. I instantly deleted them so as not to make me feel awful about myself! Its a STUNNING dress thougH. Have you seen it in person? It’s even more spectacular. Alas, I switched to willow but I’m super excited to see real brides in azalea so if you try it on take pics! Sorry I couldn’t be more help!

I feel like I need to see these Jimmy Choo’s in person because they look awesome!  With Luna being covered in crystals, and since I am having a crystal headpiece made, maybe I shouldn’t get sparkly shoes…but I can’t help it.  Everything else seems so boring.

What about convertible bras?  The kind that you can put all the straps all definitely ways? Maybe one with clear straps?

@RexManningDay:  I prefer the second ‘do, but would you consider more volume or make it slightly more tousled/messier? I think keeping it a bit imperfect is key to making an updo look more youthful. To be honest I think a Juliet veil, as lovely and romantic as it is, can be matronly/aging. Have you tried the headpiece with other veils?

@fifiparis:  Your dress is divine, and I too am jealous of you for being a Parisian. ๐Ÿ˜‰ My favourite city in the world and I am trying to twist my fiance’s arm in including it as a honeymoon destination. He’s Swiss-French so has a bit of a grudge against the French, haha.

I think those Choos would be perfect. My wedding shoes are the same fabric (actually a combination of champagne and silver) and they are reallu sparkly in real life. But your dress is simple enough to have both a sparkly headpiece and shoes, in my opinion!

These are mine, in that same sparkly leather.

@RexManningDay:  I like both of those! Maybe you can try and do it yourself just to get an idea of what it would look like? The second one actually just look like a textured bun with two pieces on either side twisted back and pinned. 

I don’t mind that it’s a bit modern, but then again I always feel like with a vintage gown/accessories it’s sometimes nice to juxtapose with a non-vintage hairstyle/makeup look. Or at least not totally vintage. I have a natural wariness towards looking like one just stepped out of a period drama, though. 

You sure you can’t do loose, 40s Hollywood waves with your dress? Maybe pinned to one side? I don’t know whether you should force yourself to go with an updo if you don’t want to…I think Jessica Chastain’s hairstyle from the Oscars would look really gorgeous.

@RexManningDay So I agree that you need a bit more volume…it looks a bit ‘strict’ as we say in French. I think something a little more whimsical…what about something like this:

It is not exactly up, but not exactly down…it could work?

@peonyinparis But we love the Swiss Wink Switzerland is beautiful, but you can’t really compare the vibe of Geneva to that of Paris…

I love your Jimmy Choos, think they are fabulous, but I can’t wear anything above a 9.5cm heel or dress will be too short (not sure what that is in inches).

I went to buy the shoes yesterday and….I didn’t like them! They weren’t comfortable. I loved the colour, and the shape, but the peep toe squidged my toes like sausages and didn’t help me with my feet complex…so now I’m on the look out, here are some options:
