After a long search, trying on around 70 dresses and thinking I would never find a dress, I went to a small little shop in Aurora IL and fell in love! The moment I put it on I knew! It is the Pronovious Bermeo. She originally has straps, but I am having it altered to a sweetheart (hence the funny arms trying to hold everything in place)! I thought I wanted a fitted dress, but ended up with a bug poofy ball gown 🙂 so happy!
and the model pic
Next Question…. What kind of veil? I love the idea of a cathedral veil, but not sure if it would be to much.

You look absolutely stunning!!! I’m a totally blunt, but honest type person. I think that dress looks much better on you than the model. I agree with your instinct to go with a cathedral veil too. The shorter one doesn’t lay quite right. I think a one layer, no trim cathedral veil would be lovely, whimsical, and just perfect.
ETA: I also really like that you tucked the straps. It creates a perfect neckline: not staight, but not a deep sweetheart either. Perfection.

@OnceUponATime: yup, the short veil is kind of dumping you, go with a lovely long one. Dress looks fantastic, congratulations!

LOVElovelove!!! I think a cathedral length veil would be gorgeous! However, I may be a bit biased since I’m wearing one for my wedding, lol!

@ambartsch: The Bermeo is stunning! I love it! I agree, a Cathedral veil would just add that extra wow factor and I’m pretty sure you can find one through Pronovias that has the same lace as the dress. 🙂

Soooo pretty! I agree that a cut edge cathedral veil would be perfect! Or, maybe a cathedral drop veil?

HOly shit – stunning! Go with a long veil. I actually think they elongate you! If you have lace on the veil have it start near your shoulders or just be along the bottom if you are worried about it being too much. Or you could do a chapel length, still long but not quite as long!
You look amazing. 🙂

@ambartsch: Definitely have a cathedral veil!!!! Having a cathedral veil will give your look tgat extra drama and elegance! And since your dress is lace, an I suggest a lace embroidered veil? I think.that would be perfect with your dress and would really highlight the detailing of your dress! Congrats you are going to be a gorgeous bride

Thank You!!!! I find myself looking at it all the time… I want to spill all the details to my Fiance, he was just as excited that I found a dress, but he doesnt want to know anything. He is very old fashioned 🙂 Never thought I would feel beautiful on my wedding day, and am now reconcidering the thoughts i had about losing weight for the wedding, i feel that good in it! Well see… I go back and forth 🙂
