I’m so grateful to all my family and friends that have been helping out with our wedding. And while my dad, sister, cousin, & auntie were with me when I bought my dream wedding dress, I am hoping to keep the final product a surprise! So without further ado… 🙂
It’s time to start thinking about alterations. Definiately tapering, adding cups, lowering the neckline, and removing the flowers on the bodice. My first instinct was to remove the sash as well, but then I realized that the sash serves to kinda-accent-the-waistline. The sash is tacked on top of the lace and then sewn in with the rest of material at the zipper. As shown below:
I initially wanted to remove the sash in order to get a more subtle waistline, but now I see that the sash accents it. I can’t seem to decide!!!
FYI my ultimate goal with this gown is to maximize the illusion of curves.
Thank you all for any input!

Do you have larger pictures of you in the gown?

candycue: I LOVE your dress. Seriously. Something about the little bit of peekaboo on the neckline is just enough mix of unique and traditional. I love that. I, too, would remove the flowers… But I would keep the sash for sure! It accents your waist perfectly and ties in the bottom part of the dress with the lace at the top!
I wish I had seen this dress when I was shopping a year ago!

It’s a beautiful dress, but I don’t care for that paticular sash. I don’t like the flowers or how it bunches. It just seems like it doesn’t belong with the dress. I think removing it and purchasing something different might work better, even a flat ivory belt/sash would look better.

I like the sash. It helps with the curves illusion you are looking for.

smoocheepoo: agreed! It doesn’t look like it matches the dress well. I think I plain satin flat sash would be stunning OP!

I think you need a sash, but not this one. You look great! Congratulations!

If you want to accentuate curves you definitely need a sash.

candycue: the sash will help with the curves but I agree that it doesn’t look quite right with the dress. I could almost be a little darker in colour to accentuate your waist more. I don’t like the flowers either – the lace in the dress is stunning and the satin sash just looks like it belongs to another dress. You’re gorgeous, what a stunning bride you’ll make!

I would remove this particular sash and add a thinner sash, maybe a blingy one

i don’t think this type of sash matching the dress well. you might wanna look for a thinner one, maybe in color so you can show your waist line. btw, your wedding dress is very lovely.
