I can see how a dress with more structure would make you feel more secure. When I tried on sheaths and was clipped in, I felt too scared to move or sit down. I would need some major shapewear. Some of the sheath dresses you can see every crease and roll and even just eating a meal would make a difference!  I was adamant against strapless as well, but you’ve inspired me to try some on. I like the jacket and agree it’s a good idea to have it removeable so you can have two looks. 

 

How are are you going to bustle it?

 

I’m always happy to see a bride-to-be find that perfect dress!

sushikaiju :  I am doing my alterations at BC!  My dress is a Justin Alexander original (one of a kind) so I did not have to order it and it only needs some minor alterations (length and waist).

Take. Look at this guide on bustles:

Your train is so beautiful it would have to be a type of bustle that doesn’t detract too much from the beauty of the dress. I would talk to your alterations person and see what they suggest. I like the ballroom bustle described in the guide for your gown.

sushikaiju :  Aw thank you!  I had 2 girlfriends who also got their dresses at BC and did their alterations there.  They both were very happy with alterations!

Um, this combination is gorgeous. I’m not going dress shopping for another month, but I’ve been swooning over Justin Alexander 8873…and unfortunately, it’s out of my price range. If you don’t mind me asking, how much did you pay for the jacket? I’m hoping I can achieve a similar look to the 8873!
