I just wanted to chime in here and tell you about something missy here^^ hasn't. She probably doesn't remember because she was rather loved up on her wedding day, but she did say to me at the reception that the sleeves had fallen off her shoulders all day and were driving her mad. Now she might have forgotten that since, but I haven't as it's my first thought every time I see capped sleeves. That shouldn't stop you having them if you want them, but be aware that they probably will slide off your shoulders alot. smile.gif

LMAO, i remembered that in the car on the way out last night, and was coming back to mention it wink.gif You are so handy K, you remember the bits i forget about my wedding (like what i ate blush.gif )

OMG! That is hilarious laugh.gif I was having a good chuckle reading that! i have kind of expected them to slip down because even in the picture from the designer they look like they are slipping! I don't mind them slipping (but I haven't had to deal with them yet so I reserve the right to complain later tongue.gif ) I just like the idea of a little more coverage up top to break up the large expanse of chest.
I don't even know how to reply to that, that is one of the sweetest most complimentary things that someone has ever said to me blush.gif Thankyou, you are really very sweet wub.gif

My straps were loose to start with, as my dress alterations lady was shit! they just sewed them on where they thought they should go, not where they should sit on my body. As you can see, it was only one side that kept slipping, but it gave me the shits the whole day. But it was mroe the seemstresses fault, not the sleeves. but definatly make sure they are firm.

other awesome part about wearing sleeves, you can wear a strap on your corset, if you go down that path wink.gif

Surprise you look so lovely. Your waist is so tiny and the sleeves will really suit you.

I would def go for half up curly hair it would look very elegant and soft

Love your daughters matching top and socks smile.gif


hehe, she's a dag biggrin.gif and thankyou for your lovely comments, I really am feeling much more confident about it all.

What a beautiful dress! I agree that it will look lovely with the sleeves as well!
And you have such lovely long hair.

Also I love the curled hair, on the side look. I think that I will have that for my wedding too.


Thankyou, I am due for a trim actually. Am sporting the "mophead" look lately blink.gif

The dress is fully boned and at this stage is firm enough (read I can barely breathe!) not to need a corset. I'm not sure what my weight is likely to do between now and then so will reevaluate undie situation in a couple of months. The straps already have little buttons inside the dress to attach so I hope they work out ok, either way I am pretty confident with my alts lady. She is expensive but she really seems very professional and experienced.

Your dress looked perfect, do you have any other pics?

I LURVE your hair down.. And VA VA VOOM!! You have an amazing stunning hour glass figure. Not many women have that gorgeous shape and curves that you do.. You certainly have picked a stunning dress to enhance your voluptuous features..

Hubby to be's eyes will certainly pop out of his head with desire when he sees you in that.. laugh.gif

I definitely love your hair down too.. You have beautiful long flowing hair and it suits your dress to a tee..

Yep, I agree with all the other girls. Beautiful dress, beautiful hair, and I think the pink you have chosen really suits your colouring. Pink in a bridal gown is not something every girl can pull off, but I think it suits you REALLY well. You have made some great choices!

Having seen some photos of your location, as funny as this sounds, I think it will also suit the location really well. laugh.gif Or maybe the location suits the dress/style.

At any rate, I think you'll be having a really classy, sophisticated looking wedding, and I think you'll be thrilled with the results!

Nice work! biggrin.gif

I just had some taken today - so I'm hijacking your thread wink.gif

You have to excuse the face - I had a wisdom tooth out on the weekend and I've had a bad reaction to medications, so I look awful - and swollen

GOSH! wub.gif

I love my pink dress but there is nothing like the effect of a crisp white beautiful gown, just looks so "bridey"... I love it! You have that dreamy peaches and cream colouring that I will never have...I don't know if I have ever had a rosey glow in my cheeks my whole life rolleyes.gif I'm always this weird yellowy colour laugh.gif

You don't look awful at all, wisdom teeth suck and i can really empathise! *shudder* I still have three that need to come out and I am dreading it/putting it off until they absolutely have to come out!

I keep scrolling down to look at your dress, it looks like so much work has gone into it! I think if I put that gown on once I woud have been out the door in it!
I love the lace down the bottom, it feels very vintage and beautiful...awwwwwwwwww I just love it!
