My dres came in last friday and I went in for my first fitting yesterday.  The dress fit perfect.  I ordered it with the shorter length option and with my shoes it was the poerfect length.  Im so glad becaue I am only 5’1/4″ so I was worried it would not be short enough.  I go back in two weeks for my second fitting.  They are currently adding cups and working on the bustle.  I am so in love with this dress.

I really did like this dress, but I’m making my dress because I didn’t have that connection with any dress I tried on. I was worried about walking in all the dresses I tried on because I didn’t want to rip them on accident.

I have this dress too but can’t  decide what accessories to have with it. What sort of things have other gone for? I’m most confused about what type of veil. Can anyone help?

@Tory44:  Here is my veil, I’m no fashion expert so I can’t claim that it actually goes with the dress, but I thought that the silver threading and small beads matched the belt.  The scallaping and flourishes seemed to have that same classic feel that the dress has.

 

On a similar note, is anyone not choosing to wear a necklace?  A lady at a bridal jewelry store told me that because of the belt, I should not wear a necklace and should wear very dramatic earrings.  She was very helpful in suggesting a $200 pair.  I’ve always wanted a necklace, so i’m wearing one anyways, and I made it myself.

PS I’m getting married in 2 weeks today!  If any summer brides want to save money and “share” the veil, I’m happy to do that.

The veil is very pretty. can I ask what length it is? I was thinking of wearing a necklace- I really like the kind of necklace the model is wearing on the maggie website!

If I remember correctly, I think it’s elbow length.

The necklace on the maggie website sure is nice.  It’s very dramatic!  Mine is a single layer.

Wow so glad to find this post on a recent google search!!! I bought the beautiful Arabella dress online back in December and as it was new there were hardly any photos of it on real brides, and now I see more pics it looks far more stunning on you all than in the professional MS pics!!!

I still haven’t been able to try mine on properly but I’m having a fitting this Friday for alterations and can’t wait!! Will try and get a pic to post and show you all.

Keep all the lovely pics coming!!!

Oh also, what is everyone doing for bustling with this dress??  As it is a beautiful lace I don’t want it wrecked and want to give the alterations lady suggestions if I can.

Is anyone considering a side bustle, where the train is gathered around to where the diamonte and flare is? I tried on another similar dress and the bridal shop showed a side bustle and it looked nice but the material was satin so may sit a lot nicer than the lace… confused!!!

Any tips would be most appreciated, thanks!
