    We’re still in the alterations phase…but this is basically my dress.  The Seamstress says the length is perfect ๐Ÿ™‚  I’m making crazy mirror face ๐Ÿ™‚

    @FoolsintheRain: Thank you! It’s strange because while I always knew I’d wear a tea length dress, I never thought I’d buy a white dress, and here I am, totally in love with my dress! And my glasses, but I wear those everyday, so it’s not as special ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @Aure:  Beautiful dress and shoes. Also, you probably get this a lot, but you look like Christina Hendricks, I’m jealous she’s so pretty

    @aprose:  Thank you! It’s from BHLDN and it’s sold out now (got the last one on sale, though they do have a lace version on sale there as well!), but it was made by Sarah Seven and it’s super similar to her Elope Dress.

    @MissStumptown:  Thank you I think it will be very nice to have a light dress to change into for the dancing! And it will be so much easier to leave in!

    I left mine ankle length and it looked great with the shoes!

    My amazing mother also sewed a lace overlay (which I think looks lovely over a straight strapless gown!)

    Here’s mine I’ll wear in just a few months.  I chose a shorter dress for the same reasons you did–not a girly girl, having a casual day, etc. A friend asked if I was getting married in a wrap dress and flats, which is kind of my uniform.  Everyone who’s seen it, loved it.  They have all said that it’s totally ME, which is all that really matters.  Wear what you love, and most importantly, what makes you feel comfortable and beautiful.

    Beyond that, there are lots of pros to a shorter/simpler dress–mainly that you won’t have to recruit help from your ladies to use the bathroom and you can rock some amazing shoes.  Plus it will take about 14 seconds to put your dress on, which gives you more time to hang out with your friends/family that day. ๐Ÿ™‚  (My Maid/Matron of Honor was super excited about point #1!)
