halloween alterations to my wedding dress... what do you think?

Hya guys, for those that dont know, myself my fiance and our 2 kids are travelling over from the UK to WDW for our first ever trip next month and we are getting married there on halloween day

I shocked everyone when i bought a traditional wedding dress (won a competition and only had to pay £250 for the dress)...
I have now made it much more me (though it was beautiful before) and we have gothed it up... we have been quite daring and we have cut it up and added black cobweb lace etc

it still isnt finished (need to add a few bats and cover the under bust panel with wine coloured satin and lace) but you get the idea and i am far too excited... I cant tell anyone else... so i came on here

Here i am trying it on (before pictures)

and here is how we have started to alter it

I think it's totally unique and you've done a great job!!

I know you're wearing black gloves, but are you adding any black to the top of the dress? The sash around the waist would look great in black.
