AW: My dress!! PIP

Edited to remove pictures.

Hi ladies!  I've been MIA since I was in TX visiting my mom to go dress shopping!  

In the dressing room.  My mom INSISTED I try this dress on.  It was hideous, as I knew it would be.  She listened to me after that.  :)


Here's my dress!  What do you think?? 
(Please ignore the odd faces)
This is the dress in white, which was a better fit:





This is the dress with light gold lace and ivory fabric underneath, which is the one I am getting.  I think the color looks much better on my skin tone. 







The dress comes with an option for a corset back, which I will be getting. 

And here is the veil my mom is making for me!

    Raven - I love the scalloped sweetheart too!!  If you notice, the lace on the veil is also scalloped to match.  :)

    SKP!  It's gorgeous!  I love the lace - seriously, it's amazing.

    Now, if you don't mind me asking, can I have the designer?  <3

    Super gorgeous! I love the neckline/lace/color.

    ...and that your mom is making you a veil. Though I'm not going to lie, in my early morning uncaffeinated state, I was like, why is the veil green?!  *facepalm* At least I was only confuzzled for a second or two... I'm going to go find some coffee! :)

    SKP, you look so beautiful! I love the neckline and shape of your dress. It fits you very well and you seem to be comfortable in it which is important. How sweet/special that your mom is making your veil for you?!? Love!
