I wanted to show you my dress! I am really happy with it. I bought a Maggie Sottero (wonderful because of the corsets) and it is Rhianna Royale. I love it! I was unsure about it…I think rouching would look better but it just wasn’t me. I am in love with the dress and with the corset it makes me look smaller than I am. It will also have a one shoulder strap made of flowers added to it.
Also, wanted to show off my flowers…I ordered from Croska on Ebay.
And finally would like some hair advice. I wanted my hair up and long and curly but looking at the pics I think it might look prettier just down and more natural. I think the dress has so much detail that the wedding hair may be too much. Please let me know what you guys thinks 🙂

Wow!! you’re dress is beautiful!! and you look fantastic in it!! The flowers are gorgeous too!! wow!!! 🙂
Okay, onto the hair! I think it looks gorgeous up and curly (half up half down and curly anyway lol) I think it matches well with the dress, flowers, and the jewelry. If you just left it down straight (which is gorgeous by the way, this isn’t an easy decision!) To me, (my opinion and I’m full of em lol) it would be too “plain” for what it going on with the dress, flowers, and jewelry. Adding the hair broach (again, gorgeous!) and the veil (which I’m assuming will be taken off during the reception and you’d still see the broach) is a perfect way to keep that “I”m a princess, bride, and beautiful” look going all the way to the end. (if the dress doesn’t do that for you, bc again, gorgeous!!!)
Hope that helps and let us know what you choose!!!

I wish I could make that 🙂 I bought it from Croska on Etsy (think I wrote Ebay above lol)

i think with all the detail of the dress (its beautiful btw) you should def go with simpler hair…. maybe something like this?

The dress is beautiful, and also the bouquet and the jewelry!!
I really like the way you wear your hair in your third post (the photo with the veil) but i am not sure if open hair looks good with the one shoulder strap. The flowers at your dress, the necklace, the shoulder strap and loose hair might be a bit too much “stuff” in the area around your neck and shoulders. Have you considered a loose up-do? I think it would look great with the dress

i agree with stephanie! there’s a lot of detail on the top of your dress, and you’re going to add even more detail with the flowered straps. you need an updo!
you look great, btw!

Pretty dress, congratulations!
I voted for your natural hair as I thought it gives a soft look, but from looking again I like the last photo where your hair is curly with the veil, so I take my first vote back.

First off: you are gorgeous in that dress! It really accentuates your curves in a very feminine way. As for hair, I’m really digging the more natural hair style you’re sporting in the first photo…maybe with the hair clip added in?

Oh wow, that dress is BEAUTIFUL! Yay you! I like the half up, half down hair, something simple. You’re right,that dress is amazing and you don’t want to take away from it at all.

I love your hair curly! I can’t picture what it would look like with the one strap added, but I just love the curly look on you!

Everything looks so great!! CONGRATS, love your dress and entire ensemble!

Oh, I decided to get rid of the necklace. When I purchased it, that was before i added the one should strap 🙂
I think I look kinda rough without hair around my face, so I definitely need it half up or down because it just isn’t a good look (my fiancee’ disagrees, but I tried it in our engagement pics…never again, lol!)
Thanks for all the compliments 🙂 Makes me feel very special!!! I know we are all looking forward to our weddings and I appreciate everyone making time to post/comment!!!
