PIP-Hair Trial and Dress Fitting

I had my hair trial today and I absolutely love it!! It was exactly what I had in my head! I went in there with nothing but my veil and hairpiece and told the girl that my dress was kind of romantic and that I wanted something soft, but I couldn't find a picture that really captured what I wanted. Then she did this and it was just perfect I am so excited!

Here are the pics:

I also had a dress fitting right after so that I could see the "whole picture".  I am so excited with everything.  I've been going to Dressmaking by Dolly and she is just amazing! Here are some pics from the fitting:

    Wow your hair an dress look absolutely gorgeous! I have a question for you... I bought my dress at 125 and love it but I know I am going to need alterations. I have (obviously on this board) heard terrible reviews of the alterations they do there so I dont think I want to trust them to do mine. Where is Dressmaking by Dolly? And did you just pick up your dress from the store you bought it at and bring it to her? Also, if you dont mind me asking, about how much did the alterations cost? Thanks so much! You must be getting so excited :)

    I also used Dolly. I bought my dress from a store in Maine brought it home and then took it to Dolly. She kept it up until the day before the wedding, it was safer there then in my house.
    I paid $200 for a bustle, cups, she took it in the back and sides. She also let me borrow a crinoline and steamed it before I picked it up.  You can see before and after pictures in my bio.
