- Wedding: September 2015
ooh, I have to share my excitement over my most recent wedding find (for my dress)!! I had posted several months back that I found my dream dress- Mori Lee 5108 on a re-sale site. Well I went to a local bridal consignment shop a few days ago to see if they had any belts/veils for it and to get some estimates for alterations. An hour later, as I am about to walk out of the store, the sales assistant that had been helping holds up a gorgeous, hand-beaded bolero crop-top that had just arrived that day. I took one look at it and knew I had to try it on! It was truly love at first try-on!
I also love how to mori lee looks without it on, so I have decided to wear the crop-top for the ceremony (first couple pics), then take it off and just wear a belt for the reception (last pic). It completely changes the look of the dress and I am SO excited to have two awesome looks on my wedding day without actually hvaing to buy two different dresses! For anyone looking to “alter” the look of a simpler dress, definitely look into add a bolero/crop-top..there are soo many gorgeous ones out there!
p.s. sorry for the wonky pictures! the veil i’m wearing in the pics is the veil I purchased for the wedding, as-is the belt in the last picture!
