@usagidollie:  I also agree that this dress looks pretty great on you. I think you are nitpicking honestly (and this comes from someone VERRRRY nitpicky!)

I love the halter strap. I wish it had a longer train, but I don’t think it’s a deal-breaker for me and its DEFINITELY not a reason to have Jasmine’s re-make the dress.

I don’t think a Jasmine’s replica will look as nice as this one does, and then you are out all this money at David’s Bridal!!!

Here are my thoughts:

  • Leave the waist straight. It is infinitely more flattering than the asymetrical waist
  • Can you have a cathedral veil instead? I have a shorter train and I wish I had a longer one. But I don’t, so I got a cathedral veil instead. It gave me some oomph and let me love my dress for what it is.
  • I LOVE the black sash! LOVE IT! But I think it needs to be thinner! Like a skinnier sash, I think this one is a little too wide.

@usagidollie:  Here is a dress with a similar shape but a much thinner sash. More flattering in my opinion:

@usagidollie:  no no no to a train, but get a veil that is super long! Something made with simple, inexpensive fabric that is a block long!

I love that dress, it’s so fun and flirty! And I don’t even normally like black belts, but that one is sassy! It’s just adorable on you!

edited to add:


I just saw your last post, so gald to see that you took my advice so qickly, about the looooooong veil I mean! haha

I love your dress as is, and I wouldn’t make any of the changes you’re thinking of. In your photos, you really are wearing that dress, and it all seems so well-balanced. It’s designed beautifully, and is special as it is.

I think the black belt looks great, but if you are wanting a blush addition, you could try a blush sash instead. I also like the idea of a blush crinoline. I’ve seen some great pictures of brides wearing large, colorful necklaces. If you add a bouquet of pale pink roses, you might have all the pink touches you need.
