I am not, but it was one of my contenders.  Such a beautiful dress!

Aww thanks! That is not my veil though, I ended up with a cathedral beaded veil for the ceremony!

I loved that dress and I wish that I could’ve tried it on, but none of the bridal salons in my area had a sample.  I ended up with the Maggie Sottero Milana.

Are you wearing a mermaid slip underneath?  I think the flare at the bottom of the dress makes it look beautiful!

A small one might work.  Maybe something like this…

The dress just looks so beautiful on the model and I don’t think it has that same little flare at the bottom without some kind of crinoline added.

The only reason I say that is because my dress shows a bit of flared on the model but when I tried it on, it needed that extra umph!

It is just something to consider.

This is my dress too! Mine is in light gold/ivory though and I had the bow removed. I had my seemstress taylor the bottom of the dress, just the satin layers, so that it gave the dress more of a “bell” or mermaid shape at the bottom – so that it looked more like the model. I think it turned out perfect!  Sorry, I don’t have any pictures of the final result, but you should ask the person doing your alterations to show you with pins what it would look like at your first fitting.  Good luck and congrats on finding your dress! I LOVE her Smile and can’t wait to wear her one week from tomorrow!

Karena Royale was almost my dress! In fact, after I bought my dress, I had major second thoughts and couldn’t get Karena Royale out of my head. I ended up going with a Casablanca. Karena Royale is a gorgeous dress, though!
