I actually didn’t use a slip at all.  The dress fell nicely and was easy to bustle/manage without one.  The skirt does have a little netting already built in at the bottom.  For jewelry I went with gold tone, since the dress was ivory over light gold.  The dress came with a silver brooch at the waist, but I switched it out.

I didn’t use a slip at all.  My pictures are here:  http://irunyourun.wordpress.com/wedding (just scroll down for the actual wedding pictures with links).

It was summer in Rio de Janeiro, so I’m glad I didn’t have an extra layer.  As it is, I could feel my legs dripping in sweat during the reception!

I wore custom jewelry I got at Macy’s — surprisingly, it matched the brooch PERFECTLY.

This shows the necklace — the bracelet and earrings were a matching set.

@CCSR:  Hello,

I don’t know if you still check this but I was wondering if you can send me a picture of your jewelry.  I tried looking on your site but coudln’t find anything up close.

Thanks!

Hi everyone! I am freaking out because I just had my first fitting and my wedding is a month away. I lost weight from when I bought Karena Royale, but I noticed the corset is pushing up my back fat!! haha! Just wondering if any of you had the same problem and was able to fix with alterations? Thank you!
