So I want to preface this by saying there is literally NOTHING I can do besides wear the dress I have. We are three weeks away from the wedding, and honestly I know I’m being a little ridiculous.
I purchased my dress two years ago because I saw it online on another bride (second hand) and was floored. It’s delicate, simple but still unique.
You can view the original post here, I no longer have access to these photos and have not taken any new ones since I’ve gotten alterations:
Since these photos we have taken it in the bust, waist and hips and shortened the hem about an inch. Originally I wasn’t going to wear a hairpiece/veil but that changed recently.
I DIY’d a hairpiece similar to this, and will be wearing a sheer cathedral length veil. My hair will be in a gibson tuck.
I think my main issue right now is that I just haven’t seen everything put together with hair and makeup. To be honest I think I also got caught into the Pinterest rabbit hole, and now that things aren’t going to be (Pinterest styled) perfect, I’m kind of second guessing all of my decisions. I’m also so close to changing my bouquet (it’s a large bouquet, I’m worried it’s going to be overwhelming).
Help make me feel better bees/tell me I’m being ridiculous!

Oh heavens! That’s going to be spectacular! Ok, the dress fabric is absolutely yummy and your planned “look” with it sounds spot. on. You would be a fool to get another dress as this one is phenomenal and you wear it so well! Rock it! Own it! The final product will be beyond words, I promise you. You made a GREAT choice.

Reminds me of The Great Gatsby. It’s not something you see everyday, and I am sure that is exactly what your fiancé sees in you.
