Hi guys I finally found the dress that I love. Just a little background with my story, I bought a dress last February it was a sample sale at Klienfelds. Then dress regret came in after a week. I didn’t really love the dress I just got carried away with the pushy consultants kept saying “are you gonna say yes?” All the time and my sister who insisted that I should just buy the dress just to get it over with. Two months later I still kept thinking about that incident and I know I won’t be happy with the original dress I bought.
I went to the bridal salon by myself and came back 3 days later with my mom. Finally! I found the dress! I’m petite 5’1 so this was really surprising for me that this shape really suits me. There’s a lot of alteration that needs to done (need to add cups in the bust area) and shorterning the hem and the train a little bit.
Its a Essence of Australia Fit and Flare gown, beaded with a diamanté waist band.
What type of accessories should I get with this gown? And any bouquet color recommendations? 😀 Wedding will be at an ocean front lawn at sunset and reception at a hotel ballroom.

ocean front lawn at sunset makes me think of gold and blue haha.
If you have blue/green eyes, maybe bring out their colour by using those colours?
I’m 5’1 too, I’ve always loved huge dresses and it turns out that I look better with slimmer A-lines, not the wow-est dresses but at least I don’t feel swallowed up haha.

karina17 : Yay! Glad to see that you picked this dress over your original. I swear nothing is worse than dress regret but at least you got it figured out before the big day came. I think pink or peach would look amazing with your dress as far as bouquet! I could imagine some peonies or juliet roses.
As far as accesories I think some pretty earrings and a bracelet would look great.
