I just got the call part II...she fits!!

She fits! She fits! She fits!! I can't tell you how relieved I was when my dress zipped up all the way. Not that I had put on any weight or anything, but it's been four months since I ordered her and even longer since I had tried her on. Another thing I was so happy about was that she isn't yellow. I ordered ivory because white made me look like a ghost, but since I hadn't seen my dress in months (I think I tried her on in March) I couldn't remember what the ivory looked like. It's very subtle, but still looks amazing.

So without further ado...

I brought an ivory veil with me that I bought on eBay for $15, but it was too yellow and too long we decided. So I tried on a few different lengths and styles and we decided on a waltz length (54") with red trim to match the red in my dress (isn't she gorgeous!!).

Here is a shot of the beautiful detail on the bodice and the cute sleeves.

Showing off my beautiful shoes that I am not going to wear. They were a tad high and made me look like a floating bell. So I ordered a pair of shoes that were surprisingly comfortable and could be dyed to match my dress. The fun part about the shoes is that they will be two-toned like my dress with the ankle strap being white (since no one will notice that it isn't ivory).

Ah, the reason I fell in love with her in the first place. Look how gorgeous that train is. I spent most of my appointment trying to turn around to look at it. :D I love the detail and the shape of the red going down to the train.

There you have it, my lovely, lovely dress that I can't wait to wear.

On Tuesday it will be five months to go!!


  1. It looks great on you! I felt the same way during the four months that my dress took to come in - it was such a relief to slip it on and still love it!
