So here is my wedding dress. I found this in the catalog last fall and knew I wanted it right away! but then when it came time for trying on dresses, I wasn't so sure. There was another Alfred Angelo one that I really liked, but unfortunately you couldn't really see the details on the skirt in pictures. So after lots of dresses, I went back to the one I knew was made for me!

The dress was supposed to take 10 weeks, to come in but they called me last Friday to tell me it was ready! It only took 4 weeks! I go in on Sunday for my first fitting. I can't wait to see what it looks like when it's actually my size!

The first picture is the model so you can see what its supposed to look like



This next one is me in it, but about 4 sizes too big



The back side of it



And here's the second dress I really almost got (on sale it was like $600. I was going to see if they hem it above my knees and just wear it for the reception, but they were honest with me and said they were afraid it wouldn't work right and didn't want me to waste the money if it was going to turn out badly)

I agree, but at least they were honest and didn't just let me buy the dress and find out the hard way

Shoes!

So here are the shoes that I bought. They aren't the exact right shade of purple but I think that's okay. I love their name--Getting Hitched. And I love that there's a red heart at the bottom (I was going to get the I DO crystal to put on the bottom, but I won't need to with this shoe). I'm not too sure about the flower though. I got them on sale so if I find another pair I like better its no biggie.





But here is the shoe I would LOVE to find! And it's pretty much the right color! It's be Jessica Simpson but its been discontinued. There's a pair on ebay right now, but they're 2 sizes too big so that wouldn't work




Anyone else have any good ideas for matching shoes?

You might could find a pair and dye them to match. Maybe mix colors to find the perfect recipe. It might take some time but at least youd have your dream shoes!

I love your dress!! The pick-ups are so elegant!

I love the first shoes actually, and how appropriately named!! I love the heart on the bottom too! :D

Can you add a gem or some jewels to the shoe you already have? They have clip on jewels?

Hmm.. looking through all of the sites and I never thought of that. How??? I know both David's Bridal and Alfred Angelo have dyable shoes but somehow it slipped my brain when I was actually looking for my own wedding shoes. I'll have to go check out their syles.

I would love to add a jewel to the shoe, but I can't really take the flower off

Rings

So here is a picture of my engagement ring. It's exactly what I wanted! I had sent pictures of what I wanted to my friends in case DF asked them, but he didn't and had just picked up on clues!



And here is the wedding band that I wanted and had gone to look at before and planned to get



but when we went DF saw this one and liked it better



so we bought it today! What do you guys think? Does it take away from the engagement ring?

Dress Update!

So my wedding dress came in early (4 weeks instead of 10 weeks) and I went to go see it today. I'm glad I did because I have good news and bad news about it.

Good news--it fits great and I love it! The only alterations I'll probably have to add will be the bustle and having padded cups put in (so I don't have to worry about a bra). The shoes I have for now (although I'm not set on them) are the perfect height.

Here are some pictures


a full shot


from the back


over the shoulder


front close up


back close up

Bad news--the netting on the front is wrinkled! I know that another disbride had this happen. I hope she had as good of customer service as I did. The manager came over and said that the seamstress could probably slice the netting open in several places and make it straight but they aren't going to chance it and are just going to order me a brand new one and put notes about what was wrong in this order. So while I'm sad that I don't have my dress, I'm glad they're taking care of the situation.


It kind of looks like shadows here, but the netting is acutally wrinkled



So please keep your fingers crossed that the new dress won't have this problem!
