@wagswifetobe: You look great in that dress!  It doesn’t look too small at all.

I tried the dress on in Oyster, but ended up ordering in Ivory.  Oyster is beautiful, but it was a little too “mature” looking for me.  I don’t have pictures of my bustle because I haven’t even done alterations yet (in fact, my dress just came in last week).  My wedding is not until October, so I probably won’t start that process until August.  I am an inch smaller than the designer’s smallest size, so I have to have both sides taken in all the way to the hips.  However, the consultant at my bridal salon made it seem like no big deal to alter the dress.  I think Fanal has been around for a little while, long enough for seamstresses to have tailored more than one/know what they are doing.  Regarding the bustle, I will do something similar to the pictures above, but as you pointed out, I would like less of the dress to be on the floor as well.

As for a veil, I think either the plain or trimmed cathedral would look great.  I guess it all depends on what kind of jewelry you want to wear/what look you are going for.  You will look beautiful either way!  As for me, I’m skipping the veil and just doing this headband by Jennifer Behr.

Glad I could be of help!  P.S. Welcome to Weddingbee!

@wagswifetobe: You may be right about the bustle, it might just be that the amount of fabric and position of the points results in the excess on the floor.  We’ll soon find out during alterations.

I love that hair style!  I think the braid looks very elegant and classic, and will compliment the dress.  Not too casual at all.  A hair flower would be a gorgeous addition for the reception.  Or, if you want a vintage look, a hair brooch would look great clipped into the bun (this is a picture of my photographer’s hair on her wedding day — she isn’t wearing Fanal, but the top of her dress looks similar).

I don’t have jewelry that matches that headband, but I found a bracelet that has a similar shape that I might purchase (pictured below).  Since I am wearing my hair down (per my fiance’s request) I will probably stick to diamond solitaires for my ears.
