CpnToad:  I had a bustle put on my dress, but was so rushed throughout the whole wedding and photos during cocktail hour, that I totally forgot to get it bustled.  I was stepping all over it whenever I got up, and I was tripping on it on our first dance.  It kind of looked messy in our first dance photo that a friend took.  I don’t have a photo of that one, but I have other ones that guests took.  I do wish that it was bustled for the reception.  Kind of sucks that I paid money to have a bustle and I didn’t even bustle it.

CpnToad:  it cost me $70 to bustle it at 8 points, so it wasn’t too bad.

Size 4 dress altered quite a bit to fit my body. 

A bustle was a MUST for me as I did a surprise dance with my bridesmaids. There was no way I was going to risk falling because one of the girls stepped on my dress! I actually had to get it bustled twice. The first time there was still a tiny train, and I had to go back and ask to get it put up completely as to where no one would step on my dress. Love how it looked after.

Anyone wear it in blush with a veil? I ordered my dress and am waiting for it to come in but can’t decide on a veil or no and if so what color.

Thanks!

@hp520 I’m skinny like you and although i love the dress I feel the same way as you do about lacking the “wow” factor. How did it come out on your wedding day?

hp520:  Hi, I am thinking of getting this dress. but I’m 5’3″ and petite and worried that I might not have the right body type for this dress but you seem pretty thin. Would you reccomend this for me?

Just wanted to add my pic! I purchased Haven over the weekend. This dress is the one you pass up because it doesn’t stand out UNTIL you try it on then BAM. Love.

I grabbed Haven the 2nd time I went browsing through the racks. I just remember saying omg omg omg as she tightened my corset (which I HATED before Haven, of course). 

I want a bit more drama on bottom so I’ll be getting something to umpht it up more and I *might* get delicate off the shoulders removable sleeves put on. I wanted sleeves sooooo bad and never in a million years thought I’d be wearing strapless so i might just wear my sleeves during ceremony. ❤️ Im 5’9 and size 12… Though my dress is a 14 I believe.
