I am your dress twin!!! Finally somebody else has the same dress as me! I ordered it last week and it should be arriving in March!  I am also getting married in July! actually July 23rd…what a coincidence. I will post a picture of me in the dress as soon as it comes in. They also wouldn’t let me take a picture of the dress until its actually mine.

@daroses:

Hi Ladies,

I also just recently ordered this dress for my August wedding.  SO in love with it!  The bridal shop I went to allowed us to take some pictures once they knew I was purchasing the dress.  If you want to send me your email addresses, I’d be happy to send over the pics i have.

Hi Ladies

I also ordered the same dress, but my first fitting isn’t until late April. I wonder if I’m cutting it a bit fine?

Has anyone ordered a veil or hair accessories? How are you planning to accessorize it?

 

Cheers

Hi girls,

Super excited that there are ladies out there who appreciate the simple beauty of this garment. Its a definite contender, if not the one.

Can anyone email photos of the dress, the ones featuring the model I think dont really show its genuine appeal.

Please anyone I promise to not show a soul, Im ready to order the dress but need the little nudge. So I dont get buyers remorse.

 

Thank you all and congrats or good luck, which ever. LOL

@tuscany: I think a hair piece of head piece, similar to the one Alicia Keys on her wedding day. Xo You will look amazing, the dress just speaks volumes.

I ordered my dress mid-November and it won’t be in until April so all I can show you guys are the two pictures on my phone. My sister went back with me later and took better pictures, but I don’t have them so if you guys want more detail let me know and I’ll upload those as well.

As fas as accessories go, I bought a veil already (not the one seen in the first picture), it’s more like the one the model is wearing in the official pictures.

@pcotton you look gorgeous in your gown. I’m glad you posted a picture of the backside because I honestly fell in love with the dress without even checking the back detail. Mine is coming in March so I still have to wait a little longer. Frown

 

I still haven’t decided on a veil yet because I didn’t want it to take away from the dress. Also I’m afraid to find out the price of the veil since I went over my budget with the dress. 

If I did get a veil I wanted one similar to thisDo you know where I could get it? Is it a Pronovias veil?

Hi Girls!! I am  so in  love with Finisterre! It is so unique and classy. I want to know a few things because I have not been able to try this dress on since the local dealer in my area does not carry a sample.

 

1. Is this dress comfortable?

2. Were you able to get a bustle put on this dress and how does it look?

3. How much were the average cost of alterations?

4. Was your seamstress able to hem this dress or did you order it shorter? I am only 5’7.

5. Is there a matching veil and would someone be able to provide me the style number?

I am so in love with this gown! Thanks in advance for your answers!

Hey fellow Finisterres!

I’m so glad finally there are posts and pics up about the dress – I am going for my first fitting NEXT week and I have no idea what is going to work with the dress!  It looks beautiful in the pics by the way pcotton Laughing

My gut feeling is it is too intricate for a really detailed veil – I think it would be lace overload?  But I don’t have a good alternative either – hoping I will get some direction next week.  

I’m also struggling with bolero/jacket/shrug – my wedding is likely to be chilly so I need something warm but I don’t know what!!! Anyone had any ideas?

I will report back on comfort etc after next week, but my only hesitation when I tried it on was it gathered slightly around the hip area – did anyone else find this?

@MissFF:  I am also wearing the Finnesterre!  I ordered in on OCt 31st, and it comes in at the beginning of March.  I fell in love with this dress.  It fits amazing around the bust line, and I love the silloette of the mermaid underneath the soft tool.  It did not gather around the hips, but I tried on a size that was way too big.  i do have a few concerns…

1. I am 5’3″, The dress was VERY long when I first tried it on.  I’m hoping it wont overwhelm me even if i wear 4 inch heels.  Hopefully it will look good in my size (since i’m not a 5’10 model!)

2. VEIL- I’d like to wear a veil, but it seemed like sooo much fabric that maybe just a beautiful flower detail in hair might due just fine.

3. BUSTLE. I have not yet seen this dress bustled.  Would this dress be a candidate for a wrist strap to carry the train?

Reguardless.  this dress is beautiful and i LOVE IT.  More updates at the fitting.  GOOD LUCK GIRLS!

I’m thinking of choosing this dress! How much did you ladies pay for it if you don’t mind my asking?

Hi Ladies,

I think the veil depends a lot on your ceremony location and how formal you are going.  I decided to go with a very plain fingertip length veil since I’ll be getting married outside near the beach- I’ll post more pics once I have the veil & dress.  Here are some pics from when I purchased the dress (keep in mind its a few sizes too big).  At the shop they clipped it to show me what the bustle might look like- of course the real thing will be much neater!
