- Wedding: May 2010
Ok, I’m desperate, I’m leaving for Vegas in 2 weeks, so I have no time. My dress arrived yesterday, it’s gorgeous. I won’t say the name, but you can probably figure it out or see my past posts, I just don’t want this post to come up in a search for her, it’s not her fault!
It just doesn’t look right on me, and since I’m desperate and can’t wait to post until the weekend when I try it on again with makeup, different shoes and no veil/ different veil, so am posting the horrible cell phone picture.
Hair has to be worn up (probably loose Taylor Swift/ Eva Longoria style).
Shoes- more delicate looking, probably going to be ivory or maybe a baby blue if the ones I get look right, but I’ll just have to suffer with a thinner heel. 🙂
Veil- this one’s too poofy with the poofy dress, so I’m getting just a simple elbow length veil or may not wear one at all
Jewelry- I thought I wouldn’t wear a necklace, but it looks empty (those are my wedding earrings). So, I’ll either get bigger earrings or also wear a strand of pearls.
Or I can just not wear it, and wear what I was going to wear the next day, my BCBG dress with a waltz length veil.
My mom and sister were concerned that this poofy dress made me look like I have no waist, it does and I sorta knew it would do that when I ordered it. It’s the look of this style, it looks fantastic on all the brides who have worn it (albeit strapless) and just doesn’t look good on me 🙁 A third option that I probably won’t do because there’s no way to tell until I do it- cut out a bit of the petticoat underneath to try and minimize the poofiness. But then if it doesn’t look good, it’s ruined and I can’t try to sell it.
Opinions? Thank you so much!
