THE Dress

Ok, ok, I know that I held out on your for so long as to what dress I chose, so this is it. Now that the wedding day has come and gone, we can get to the good stuff.  

The Reveal.

(Please see Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4Part 5, & Part 6 for the posts about my dress search. I know, there are a lot of dresses.)

Now, if you made a guess from Part 6, and you guessed the Watters WToo "Yardleigh," then you are correct!

As extensive as my dress search was, this dress made me feel really, really pretty.  There were some things that I did want to change, however, and change them, I did.  First, you will notice the most obvious change - the pickups.  The pickups no longer exist, and this was something I was absolutely adamant about, despite the fact that both my mom and my sister wanted me to keep them.  

The other thing that I changed was the train.  I really liked the way that the train looked while walking and standing still, but I didn't like any of the bustle options at all, and knew that it was waayyyy too long to keep unbustled during the reception.  So, my incredible seamstress, Rose, worked her magic on the dress, and was able to accomplish both of these major changes.  

Here's a picture of me at my final fitting, but you'll have to wait to see the day-of pictures until recaps begin.

So, what do you think? Did you think this was the dress I was going to choose? Did you choose a dress and then make drastic changes to it, like I did?
