    I’m getting my dress made based on a Sottero and Midgley dress but with some changes. It is about $900 for the dress and matching veil. I DIYed my shoes for about $100-150 for everything I needed, and I haven’t bought jewelry yet but I’m eyeing some earrings a bracelet from Etsy that total around $100 if I remember right.

    @mstellah:  Of course! I should have put the name to the dress. I love the close-up of the beading on your dress.
