I ordered my wedding dress! (Pictures)


Friday, September 16, 2011

I went to the bridal boutique last night and ordered my wedding dress! I am so excited and cannot wait until it gets in (sometime in January). I ended up ordering the Jasmine F304 in white (the pictures are in ivory). I've already talked to a seamstress about having it altered. I plan to have the train removed so that it just hits the ground, I'll probably need the strap altered as the one on the sample was very loose, I want to have bra cups added so that I can go strapless with confidence, and then I might have her add a layer of tulle underneath to help fluff it up and keep it looking full on the bottom.



The Front



The Side



The Back



The Waist - Detail



The Strap - Detail


Now I need to figure out what kind of jewelry to wear and how to do my hair. I'm thinking for jewelry just really simple, maybe just a single stone sparkly necklace with matching earings. As for the hair... I'm thinking a side ponytail with curls and maybe a sparkly headband or barrette of some sort... although I'm not sure my hair is long enough for a side pony. Oh the decisions to make!

Thanks again everyone for all the feedback during my wedding dress shopping experience... I appreciated it all!

    You look beautiful and I LOVE that dress! I would almost say no necklace with the strap detail, but do earrings and a bracelet. Up to you though. I am sure you will look great!

    EEEEeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEe it's beautiful! Love the idea of a side ponytail, very chic. If your hair isn't long enough, you could do a side bun.

    What a beautiful dress! It looks perfect on you:-) I'm so happy that you were able to find the one meant for you:-) Have you thought of borrowing jewelry from a close friend or one of your relatives? I'm borrowing jewelry from one of my bridesmaids as the borrowed part of the "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue".

    That dress is fantastic. I like the idea of simple jewelry and a fairly simple hairdo. But I'm not a girl for elaborate displays.
It's similar to a dress I was looking at minus the strap.

    You look AMAZING in this dress. Rather than have tulle added you can also buy a slip (I am surprised they didn't have you try the dress on with one), that will keep the bottom looking full too.

    So exciting to see, so excited for you! And So beautiful! For jewelry, check on Etsy.com for some unique gorgeous wedding jewelry that could be customized for you... one of my friends did that a year ago at her wedding, with a matching earring and necklace set, but had the necklace modified. Although, as I think on it, I scored some really gorgeous pieces at very reasonable prices by checking the discount type places like TJ Maxx, Marshall's, Ross's etc (don't know where you live, I just saw the link on my friend feed so one of my other friends has commented here!). And don't worry, your hair will be long enough for a cute side ponytail by January when you get your dress. Or you could experiment with a simple French twist and some cute ribbons or tulle or flowers or beads/pearls tucked into the top of the twist...

Don't worry!
YOU'LL BE A GORGEOUS BRIDE!!!
