I'm so nervous about posting this blush.gif eek!

I wasn't going to because it isn't a great photo and i'm a bit embarassed but just wanted to get some opinions because obviously noone I know has seen me in it and I have noone to tell me if i look like a cow or whatever blush.gif

i had a bit of a meh moment when I saw myself, I think it looks ok but i'm not exactly impressed by the way i look sad.gif

scuse the face, quadripe chinnage etc, I was all smiley and posey and then the camera stuffed up and i had to shuffle over and fix it and run back..then my daughter jumped in and whalah grumpy expression and excessive chinnage rolleyes.gif

Oh wow! You look beautiful wub.gif You have a stunning hourglass figure and the dress showcases it beautifully. Will you be wearing your hair down on the day?

thankyou blush.gif

it's so nice of you to say that because I have stared at that picture for the last 24 hours thinking ugh, i just look kinda wide blink.gif

I'm not sure about my hair, probably curly with some up, some down. i feel like my face is too severe with it all pulled back, but it's pretty long and unruly so it is going to need some serious taming and like a thousand poky pins laugh.gif

Are you wearing a veil? Just thinking that if your hair is going to be up you'll need something around the shoulders to break it up a little IYKWIM? But I really think you look beautiful, such a lovely dress!

I had little sleeves like that (i didnt know about them until a few weeks before the wedding), and i feel they 'made' my dress. Here is a pic

I think your dress is fantastic, i love your hourglass figure.

If you went with the sleeves, hair wise i would suggest a low slung bun, with a clip. something elegant, as your dress is beautiful and your hair should compliment in smile.gif

Oh gosh! you look so pretty! I love the neckline of your dress, it's so different than most that I have seen. I love your pearls too. I was almost going to go a pearl necklace but the top of my dress is heavily beaded so I thought it might be too much, so i have a dainty lil pearl bracelet and my veil lady put teeny ones on my comb. I just keep scrolling down and looking at your photo, you look like a dream bride wub.gif

To be honest I am quite peeved with the bridal store for losing my sleeves, I didn't order a strapless gown dry.gif but I guess I can only be patient and hope that they sort it out for me in a timely fashion.

I just wanted to say thankyou for all of the lovely comments wub.gif

I am really happy with our decision to have a surprise wedding but sometimes it has been hard on me emotionally as I can't just pick up the phone and call my mum or my sister for reassurance sad.gif There was no moment where anyone said "that's the one!" nobody to show (but I did just show my unsuspecting neighbour! laugh.gif ) and I had some tears last night because I just felt so unsure about it. It's nice to hear the opinions of others biggrin.gif

I think it is beautiful and you look amazing in it!!! I agree with the other girls about your hair up. If you think it looks to severe maybe have a 'looser' style. I love capped sleeves I had them too!!!

I can't wait to see it all come together smile.gif
