@plantains: Yeah I did! Haha funny thing was that the dress is so heavy it weighed down on the FULL ball gown slip (the largest one they had).

I want to eliminate the trumpet look and have a more a line look. I dont want to go ball gown poofy, medium at the most (I’m very tiny).

@sunshine82:  I don’t really know. I’ll have to see what I think when I have my second and hopefully final fitting on the 21st. It will kind of depend on what is under the dress and how it lays after it’s been shortened. It might be okay once it’s not poofing out from being too long.

@Loribeth – Looking forward to seeing your pics! ๐Ÿ™‚

@sunshine82- That’s a nice veil! We’re totally on the same page! I want either it either lace trimmed or beaded. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m for thinner lace on the edge, something that’s just an inch thick or thinner.

@glammy:Thanks!! Hmm I TOTALLY agree! But the reason why I choose the rhinestone edge veil too is because I’m scared the lace one will be too much lace. But then again, the dress has a lot of bling and maybe the rhinestone veil will add even more?

Uhhhh decisions decisions…

Do you have a pic of your veil?

Btw girls, not being noisy or anything, how much did you guys pay for your dress? Preowneddress says the dress is over $1,000.

@sunshine82: I bought mine as a sample dress, so I got 50% off the retail price. Retail price was $1,054. I paid $527+tax.

^^ not the best pic, but here’s the veil. I’m still wondering if it should be edged in  lace or rhinestone.

1914 retailed for $1000 at the bridal salon I went to.

This is my dress as of today!!!!!  I’m wearing a cathedral veil…I tried one on with lace edging and thought it was too much with the dress.  Beaded edging seemed to compliment it more!
