This is an English Net strapless slim gown adorned with hand appliqued and beaded Alencon Lace and trimmed with crystal encrusted Lace banding in Ivory.  Top 2 photos taken from Priscilla of Boston website.  The bottom 3 pics aren't so good but I wanted to show the detail of the beading.  I love the crystal buttons in the back.

First Fitting with Janet Brunton

My Veil

My Dress photo 11

This isn't the best picture but this is my beautiful cathedral length veil made by Candi Merle.  It is ivory tulle with alencon lace starting from the fingertips all the way around the edge.  I didn't want a full mantilla because the dress is so detailed that I didn't want the lace to take away from the top part of the gown.  Candi matched my dress perfectly.  I absolutely love it and she was such a joy to work with.

Fi's aunt also made me a matching purse for my dollar dance.  I don't want people pinning money on my gown!

Cute idea to have a dollar purse for the money dance.. Pins can really ruin a dress!

Your dress is gorgeous.  And I'm so in love with your veil!

Beautiful dress! Congratulations to you and your new hubby :)

I'm planning on having my dress made too and was wondering if you could share how much you spent on yours? Did you buy your own material? How many meeting did you have with Janet? Thanks so much!

Your dress is gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
