I love the birdcage veil and plan B!! 

What you were going for with the first dress looks beautiful (the photos you replied with), but clearly the seamstress wasn’t able to bring your desire to life. 

I think plan B and the veil are fabulous!!

lightchaser :  Go with the backup, girl! To be blunt with you, the first one is not nearly as flattering. You look gorgeous in that second one!

lightchaser :  i’m not sure what plan a was supposed to be like but i dont like any of it. Plan b is gorgeousssss. What is it about plan b that is making it your second choice? In My Humble Opinion it blows plan a out of the water. It is beautiful and super flattering. If you want to add black to the dress like you had in the first one, you can accessorize with a belt, shoes, jewelry, hair piece etc..

***just saw your update. Love the birdcage!!!!!

Plan B is amazing! I’m sorry your custom dress didn’t turn out more like your inspiration. But I’m sure there are many brides here who might tell you they looked better in a certain style dress (and one they weren’t even originally going to try on) than they ever thought they would. I think B with birdcage would look incredible and you could do maybe some more dramatic dark eyeliner to evoke that kind of goth glam look. Good luck!

Your birdcage looks fantastic. Nicely done! Make sure to update us with pictures of the whole ensemble!

Plan A was, to be completely honest, unsalvagable. By contrast B is simply lovely on you. The whole look is much more sophisticated than either the inspiration photo or the unfortunate translation. They are night and day.

That dressmaker is truly talented…. To be able to make someone so beautiful look so, well, not. I’m so happy you’re going with plan B. It’s a shame it didn’t work out but at least your new dress looks gorgeous and LOVE the veil. Can’t believe you made it! I also wound up with a first dress that didn’t fit me properly and got a second dress. It really knocked me around. But I never regret not persisting with the dress that wasn’t for me. Best of luck xx

Plan B is just lovely , especially with that gorgeous birdcage fascinator/veil .  I think, if I may suggest, it needs just little more  more length or fullness   in the veil itself part.

lightchaser :  Plan B is beautiful on you, and I think the birdcage pulls the look together perfectly. I’m impressed that you were able to make that!

I’m sorry that you were disappointed with the dress you were originally expecting to wear at your wedding–unfortunately the seamstress didn’t have the skills to pull it off. I hope you were able to get a full refund.

I think your new look will be perfectly non-traditional and gorgeous. The Plan B dress looks like it was made for you.
