Simple dress + sequined topper =magic! Great combination. Classy and “clean”. I think it will work beautifully.

EFF those people. It is YOUR wedding and I think that combination is not just unusual and creative but also gorgeous. And keep in mind: those people are your family and friends – would they really feel disappointed? Won’t they be far too focused on you and your husband receiving the Lord’s blessing? And won’t you just radiate so much happiness any dress you wear would look amazing?

I don’t think it’s too simple; I think it’ll be a great pair.

I think they look great together. Like you said,  there’s no way to know what it will look like until it comes in. The sequins are beautiful. I wouldn’t stress too much about it since it seems it’ll look great and at this stage,  you just need to wait for the dresses to come in.  

Like you,  I had a lot of trouble finding a modest dress with cap sleeves that wasn’t see through.  I ended up visiting 6 different stores and trying on a lot of dresses(which was a lot more fun then I thought it would be). 

You are more open minded then I was.  I gave up after trying on a couple of toppers and lace shirts with strapless dresses and not liking the look on me.  I think you have a good figure for it. I ended up going with a custom dress. It currently being sewn up and here’s the in progress  pic I just received(sry, I’m just so excited a and want to show it off)

Good luck bee,  I hope you post back with your dress with the topper after it comes in.

haleythelady :  I think the boxy top with the slim maxi skirt is a lovely look (if the pics above are you,  you look fantastic).

Yes,  my sister lives in Utah and I’m sure it would have been a lot easier to buy my dress there. There’s also a line from Mon Cheri called Modest by Mon Cheri,   but they don’t carry it in any stores in Texas. 

I actually flew out and visited my sister a month before Fi proposed. Hurumph,  I wish I’d done some dress shopping on that trip. 

My dress is mostly based on a Latter-Day Bride dress with some modifications to make it more me.  I really wish I could have visited their store in person and ordered from them, I just cant justify the cost for a dress I couldn’t try on and by the time I ordered,  I would have needed to pay for rush processing too.

I wouldn’t worry about the multiple dress thing,  I actually ordered a used dress off eBay as a backup in case I couldn’t find anything in person or online.   I’m sure you can sell the dress you don’t end up wearing. 

Also,  your Fi loves you and will be so happy he gets to marry you. I’m certain he wont even see the dress as much as he’ll see you.

haleythelady :  oh how funny! That’s no good of the seller to rip off photos like that πŸ™ and I’m definitely not down for an $800 crop top sealed but I still like the idea and your top is cool.

Simple dress and crop top is my vote. Really pretty and different, and not boring at all

haleythelady :  

Simple dress and sequinned topper, absolutely  (though I can see why you think the topper might look boxy….you’ll  know when you try it on, hopefully no .  )   That topper would  not look good  with the  lace of the  Watters , plus all that alteration  anyway.

Be careful with this  “I thought if I added a long veil, a blingy headband and a cool chunky bracelet or something it could turn into something really fun and different.”

It is a wedding  dress, nice and flowy and  elegant and will have a totally sequinned  topper to dress it up. Not boring  AT ALL  so  no need for all that extra imho. Veil yes, chunky sparkly anything ,  no .
