This is for the girls asking about more pics…I hope this helps and sorry it took so long….just an idea for the hair…I had my dress hemmed and I kept the lace that was taken off the bottom and cut the flowers out of it and used them in my hair. It worked out great, I love how they looked..simple and elegant and they matched and didnt cost me any more money…Im not the veil type of person so I loved it, and I also inspiration for my cake form the dress as well. I had her do the flower lace design on every other layer of cake and use the silver decorators in the middle of the flowers to match the sequins. I found the metal pendants at walmart and used those for what I thought looked antique and used a bigger one in the middle of our initials…I liked it all. Ohh and I love my nephew in the right corner of the bouquet toss, adorable!

I wore this dress this past august 2009 and LOOOOVED this dress! It was lightweight and comfortable and just had that little extra something.

i didn’t have to pull it up once (may be due to being measured perfectly & a fab seamstress).

I also didn’t wear a veil – I wore a white feather clip which you can see in one pic. And just wore diamone & pearl earrings, no necklace. No bracelet either because I was afraid it would catch on the lace and tear it.

let me know if you have any other questions!

If you don’t mind me asking, what did you wear UNDER your Casablanca 1827? I have my first fitting in a few weeks! I’m thinking a bustier?

hey missbelle710 — i had cups sewn into my dress, it worked out great, although, i’m only a small B, so I don’t need much support.

I just wore this dress to my wedding – with a few modifications… I attached the spaghetti straps (which I highly recommend!!) and added a belt. Pics are below. I received so many compliments on this dress 🙂

@girlie9teen:

Is your dress ivory or white?  I am having trouble deciding.

Thanks!

@jenn32: It’s ivory, our wedding was outdoors and with the sun I think it would have been too bright. And I think it went better with my skin tone..not too much of a harsh contrast.

@girlie9teen:  Thanks so… much! 

In your pictures it really looks white, which I like.  There are some ivory’s that are more yellowish but the ivory in this dress is more whitish.  I did not want white though because I also thought it would be too harsh with my skin tone.  

I ordered the ivory last week and now I know I made the right choice. 🙂

Thanks again!

Jenn
