wow!  Very impressive!  I love the straps too.  I’m not normally a strap person but those are very light – I really like them!

@queencharlotte04:  Lovely!

My mother and I were planning on DIYing my dress, but we both realized that mermaids look best on me, and that the type of dress I wanted would ended being more expensive (and time consuming) to make than the dress we found when trying on different silhouettes.

I know how you feel about being surprised that something you like didn’t look the way you wanted on. I was dead set against mermaid gowns (I wanted a natural waist a-line, I think, with all over lace) but they looked gawd awful on me. I really needed a dress with mroe structure.
 

your dress looks AMAZING and it’s going to be such a wonderful heirloom!

If the compass necklace is important to you, keep it! I will be wearing the diamond pendant and diamond bracelet that Fiance has gifted me, irregardless of if the “work” with my look. Both pieces are very important (because I’m a sentimental sap) so I’m wearing them. ๐Ÿ™‚
