I haven’t ordered her yet but I’ve been lusting over this dress for a year (seriously, see page 1 of this thread!).  I finally tried her on and it looks like I won’t need much alterations for length because of my heels (5.5″).  I’m 5’4″ for the record.  The dress was a little small but I’m so excited!  The veil is also the one I’ll be purchasing, its so sparkly and amazing ๐Ÿ™‚ 

and my shoes (I made them myself, thanks to tutorials from other Bees!) :

@karinschi:  My dress was a size 2. I’m 5’5 and I wore 4 inch heels. I needed my dress shortened just on the sides like an inch, and it was perfect. I figured I could give you pretty accurate measurements since my dress was a size 2 as well. Hope this helps.

@karinschi:  Here is how it fit for. Don’t forget, in the picture I’m 5’9 since I have my heels on.

Hi Bees!

This is my first time actually asking advice on the site! I, too, have purchased the Divina – ivory with the bling belt! My dress is in and I’m to schedule my first fitting soon (My wedding is only 74 days away – AHHHHH!)

I have a bit of a dilemma though… My rings are are set in yellow gold (I know it’s rare but yellow gold has always been my fav!) and the bling on the dress is set in silver hardware…. Here comes the dilemma – do i wear jewlery based on the hardware on the dress or based on my rings??

HELP!!!! Thanks ladies! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s me in my MS Divina! This is blush, but I ordered it in ivory– it came in a couple months ago but I’ve yet to try it on. I’m excited to see what it looks like on in the ivory and my size. You girls look so fab– can’t wait to see the ideas you all come up with. ๐Ÿ™‚

@thefuturemrswoods:  Congratulations!! I am curious to know what shade of jewelry will you wear with your ivory? I am also getting it in Ivory and am thinking of just flowing with the belt, but have been reading and alot of what I find says we should wear pearls or gold…

 

If anyone knows of the jewelry idea let me know!

I’m doing something a little different with my Divina. I ordered a size 8, knowing that I am a sz 0, because I didn’t want the drop to be so low. I needed that extra length to pull the drop up. Here’s how it will look after alterations.

@futuremrsmendez:  Oh my gosh, good question! It’s honestly something I haven’t thought of, but I just figured I’d do the same and flow with the belt and do maybe a chunkier, blingy necklace or something. I’m so terrible with accessorizing as it is, so just thinking about that gives me anxiety haha. Definitely let me know what ideas you come up with!
