Yay, other pearl lovers!! Count me in πŸ™‚  And since we’re getting married on an old ship and have lots of “ocean elements” in our wedding, pearls were a given for me. Here is my dress, veil, hair comb. It’s hard to see, but the dress has little pearls at the center of every flower.

I am so obsessed with pearls and I love this thread! I tried on an Oleg Cassini for David’s Bridal dress that had lots of pearls, but I ended up deciding it wasn’t for me. My dress doesn’t have any pearls, but I am making up for it in accessories! I’m trying to figure out which necklace to wear (there’s a poll on a thread i created), but leaning toward one of these:

Here is the beading on my dress. There are pearls in the center of the flowers. My husband bought be a beautiful pair of pearl and diamond drop earrings to match, and I wore those on our wedding day.

seegee:  thank you for voting because I am so undecided!!

The dress is CWG 641. Sadly it only goes up to 14 and I am more like a 16/18 in bridal πŸ™ but I adore my real dress so it all worked out!! Here are pics. As you can see in the close up, it is lace that is covered in little pearls from top to bottom!

ALL of

those are perfection lol! I’m in love with pearls and lace!! Here’s mine! I’m removing the netting from the top, wearing a Juliet cap veil with some lace and pearls and the back where it has the cascading pearls they are putting a size bigger of the pearls for me. Strapless dress is going to be my reception dress without the train and I’m adding a pearl ballaro (think that’s the spelling lol)

Heard the pearl shoulder necklace I’ll be wearing with the strapless dress. Haven’t decided which one yet.

seegee:  Thank you!! I added the straps! πŸ™‚ Knew what I wanted in my head, went to a slew of fabric stores and finally found the perfect pearled trim, and my seamstress used leftover champagne underlay from my dress and made straps with the pearl trim over the top.

vintagefemme:  Love love love that first necklace!

becomingblamo:  Your dress is just stunning, and I think it’s a great move to take off the illusion part — I think it’ll look great without it!

seegee:  you’re so right about that Maggie Sottero – gorgeous. And yeah I totally agree about the popularity of coloured dress linings.
