First fitting!!! Opinions needed!!

I had my first fitting today… I had to go with the shoes and undergarment that I will wear on the wedding day so the lady can adjust the dress correctly.


Ignore the stoned-like appearance which is a combination of no make-up and my mothers phone


But I took the opportunity to have my hair up were I thing I want it, in order to see how the veil and headpiece  will look and I think I’m happy with the veil appearance and I think with the flower also. What do you think?


I had my first photo 3475990-1 I had my first photo 3475990-2


I had my first photo 3475990-3


I also had my necklace to see how it will look altogether.. hummm… I like it but still.. I don’t know… Is there something missing? Is it just ok?


I had my first photo 3475990-4 I had my first photo 3475990-5


Please be brutally honest

Dress - awesome, hair & veil - awesome

Your necklace is nice but didn't give me the 'wow' that everything else does. It looks different in the first photo - or is it just me going crazy? Do you have any other options? Maybe a simple pendant, just something that hangs a little bit lower?

Will you be wearing earrings? I dont see any earrings.


then, I like the look. I think the necklace goes well with the overall look,especially with the flower in your hair.


However I dont know, but I kinda feel your gown would go better with a veil with a smaller band trim. Or preferably, a lace trim. Or no trim at all, but rhinestones scattered all over it. 


But the look is beautiful, its really obvious. You look...princess-bridal, so I ant wait to see how it all looks with makeup and a pro photographer. Your gown is lovely, I dont think Ive ever seen its kind ever.

Thanks Nicki!!


Yes, in the first pic it hangs lower because it's wrapped around 3 times, in the 4+5 pic it's wrapped 4 times. My mom, the store lady and a friend of mine said it looked better with the 4 times. 


I realy wanted to wear this one because my mom gave it to me as an engagemet gift, but yes as I look at it now I am in doubt... ugrhhhh

Thanks nenyibabs!


Unfortunately the veil is part of the dress package, it was included in the dress price and I don't know if I can affort to by another one. But in the second fitting I will ask if they can make the trim thinner!


Next week is my second fitting and I will arrange a make-up trial at the same day before I go to the fitting!

It is very pretty, maybe it's because the last couple of photos don't have your veil that I'm questioning it

I love your veil! I think your overall look is great! It's hard to imagine b/c the last pic (with the necklace wrapped more) is a pic without the veil on...We need to see it all together! hehe. I think a little lower would be good, so the first pic with it wrapped 3 times might be better!? Just make sure you love it before wearing it on your big day.

Thanks!


Next week I will make sure to take a pic from the front with both the wraps so you can compare!


Or maybe it needs something with bling? Or maybe not? I feel a little frustrated because I don't have a bling necklace to see it in comparison. And if I go and buy a blingy one and It does not go again it will be money wasted.. I really don't know

I don't think there's anything wrong with the necklace, I just think its a bit high but if you can try it all together again it will be clear.
Like Elise says, make sure YOU love it

*oups for triple posting*


I DO love it as a necklace. It's beautiful and I love the rosy color of the pearls, I'm just not sure if it's right for the wedding day look.


I will make sure to take more pics next week, with the veil and with it being both lower and higher and hope this will clear my mind

The dress is gorgeous. I agree with the other ladies. Maybe have your hair lower so your veil sits better.  I agree about the trim on the veil see if they can make it thinner. As for the necklace I think it's beautiful but as suggested maybe not so much a choker style. Would your mother be offended if you didn't wear it for your big day? Maybe wear it for the rehearsal dinner. Some bridal shops have something blingy you can try on with your dress. Thats what we did with my daughter. Her consultant let her try on a necklace they had there in the store. This would save you from buying one but even if you bought one and didn't like it you could possibly return it.

No no I don't think she would be offended, I wanted to wear it if possible cause it's a sentimental thing..


I asked them if they had necklaces but they did't. They only have hairpieces. :-( It would be super helpful. I will ask some girlfriends and maybe one will have something blingy I can borrow to see how it goes.

ok I think the necklace looks like it is choking you is there anyway way just to wrap it twice so hangs a little longer. or what about getting a brooch and put on there like this?
