- Wedding: May 2018
The jacket by itself was about $740 (gulp)….darn those Swarovsky crystals…
I tried on some lace alternatives but just wasn’t feeling it. I considered the more reasonable priced once that goes with the Chesney gown but a) it doesn’t cover the entire back, and b) the geometric patterns remind me of spider webs. It appears that adding the magic word “Midgley” = $$$$$.
Our wedding was sat 10/1. Ill do a recap when the pro pics are in but omg! The dress is awesome and i got sooooo many complements!
I had some extra toulle (spelling?) put in the front of the dress to make it flare more so at first, walking was awkward. I practiced a kick, step, kick, step for going down the aisle. Also the dress did get hot when i danced but i think all dresses do.
You will love it! Mine was a corset back and seriously the last breath of air in my diaphragm was squeezed out of me as they pulled me in. I looked great and didnt pass out! I even could sit down for dinner!
harleybeachbride6 : it was a three point bustle. So my mom learned how to bustle it and we got home and she totally forgot. So we went back to the seamstress and i have a video of her showing us how to do it again. I can send it to you if you PM me. I dont think i have any close up shots though 🙁 it was a three point bustle left right and center about 12″ down from the bottom corset loops. Then to hold up the heavier material, the seamstress put in a loop and a tie on the far underside that tied together. Ill look and see what I can send otherwise Ill send you the videos 🙂
harleybeachbride6 : actually the videos suck because i was half freaked out that my mom didnt know what she was doing and I wanted to tell you that im sure your seamstress will do a great job so try not to worry! The five point bustle the other girl had looked nicer than mine I thought!
I just bought my Emma dress and had the first fitting and I love it!!!! Being a plus size girl I was so worried about the fit but I was pleasently surprised 🙂 we orders additional lace and are adding 3/4 sleeves I can’t wait to see the finished product!
