- Wedding: July 2013
This is my wedding gown – Alfred Angelo Ariel 201 (Diamond White). I need some advice on alternations I considering. Note: Alterations will be made at no charge so I’m not too worried about cost. 🙂
Here a photograph of the front…
Here a photograph of the back…
Here is a close-up of the corset back.
My first question is this: Should I have the dress taken in so that the corset forms a wider “V”? I’ve seen many pictures of corsets that form a wider “V” than mine. Mine seems to look like it is all the way closed from my waist down. I think I like that look better than this so I”m considering having the entire bodice and hips taken in slightly. What is the proper look of a corset back dress?
My second question is this: How should my dress be bustled for our wedding reception. This is my guess of what an under-bustle would look like – fabric tucked underneath.
This is my guess of what an over-bustle might look like. I think I like it better because it is more elongating (I’m only 5’3″) and shows the lace/beading detail of the very back end of the train.
Thoughts? Other ideas on bustling?
Finally, if any other brides plan to wear or have worn this same wedding gown, I would love, LoVe, LOVE to see pictures.
Please and thank you!
