@Diva: Thank you for the lovely compliment!

I totally love just looking at it! LOL.  I want to show my friends, but I want them to be surprised on mybig day. 

@livjasmine: there is also a very similar dress to the Galante that was strapless & had a little cut out on the bottom of the skirt, such that when you walked your shoes would peek out. 

I was initially going for strapless, but I think the strap-version looked better on me–it elongated my torso.  I was also considering have them add the little cut out for me, since the bottom of the dresses are otherwise identical–since I am dedicated to getting some amazing shoes (probably in fuchsia!).  But the more I look at it, the more I think its actually perfect the way that it falls & I will leave it as is.

@money: do you think you could get it hemmed slightly shorter to show your shoes? Did the bride on whose wedding is it have the shortened version? I think she was in Florida or something like that? It had a very similar bottom but it was shorter (I actually thought too short, but now I am wondering if it was intentional… lol)….

omg…moneypenny02, you look GORGEOUS in that dress…it’s like it was MADE for your body type (screw the hungry model), and the color is perfect with your complexion (does it have a hint of pink to it or am i imagining things?). i’m so jealous, i can only hope that my wedding dress will look half that good on me!

Thank you so much!

@veganglam: It doesn’t seem to have any pink undertones in person, BUT it is the slightly less “pure white” of the 2 colors that it was available in.  

I’m kinda nervous about the fit when I get the real thing, b/c when they took the measurements, my body spanned 4 different sizes depending on what was being measured!! I had also recently (unintentionally) lost a lot of weight which I am NOT confident that I will be able to keep off until August, so I decided to go for a size higher than the one the saleswoman actually recommended.  (I actually got nervous and called her back after I had already placed the order & bumped it up one size!) I just hope there won’t be too much material in some of the smaller places that it will be difficult to alter down.  

@crebre: I think that I will just probably keep the dress as-is.  I do like the way that it falls straight across & almost makes it look like a cloud when I walk.  🙂  Definitely needs to be shortened a bit though–I was tripping on it as I walked around!

I’m wearing purple shoes! (If I can find some that are relatively comfy and look H-O-T-T!) 😉

Hi Girls! I actually just ordered this dress a couple days ago ( I changed my mind from my original dress) and am wonder if you are doing a veil w/ this dress or not?  I’m completely in love w/ mantilla veils but think the lace would just not mesh well w/ the dress..Any advice?  I’m also thinking of taking the flower off and putting it in my hair instead..THanks!

@ kkninceh — Not sure about the veil.  I never planned on having a regular veil, but I tried it on with the dress and it actually looked really nice.  Not totally me however, so I won’t be doing a traditional veil.  I may try to do a birdcage veil.  I am almost definitely doing a side bun with a flower, and I may just have the netting of the birdcage veil pinned under that.  I will have to see how it looks, but if anything, that will be the extent of it.  

I don’t personally think that a veil would add too much to the dress/look, but if you find one that you think accentuates it well and gives it that perfect LOOK you are looking for, definitely go ahead. I don’t think that lace, per se, would not go with the dress–it’s more about the whole look that you are trying to achieve.
