Hey all!! I''m so excited, I bought the dress yesterday! I tried it on weeks ago, and instantly knew it was the one. We went to a few more places, but nothing compared. I went back yesterday with mum and my MOH (who had a little tear in her eye
). I''m so thrilled with it, it''s perfect for me. With out further ado...

...I present La Sposa, Famosa, as worn by Porridge
All hair/makeup/accessories/shoes advice is welcome!

Back detail. The buttons aren''t all done up, but you get the idea.

Thanks a million Deelight! Thank you akmiss, it only needs slight tweaking in the alterations - it is too long at the moment. Luckily the dressmaker said it would be easy as pie. I love it!

Beautiful dress - congrats on finding it!!

I vote for your hair similar to how it is in that picture - soft, lush, waves, very romantic, though I think it would also look beautiful swept up (again, soft and romantic because your dress is very romantic) with some tendrils coming down and beautiful dangly earrings

Omg! Gorgeous dress & you look spectacular. I love the lace detailing and the buttons. It''s a bit like old-fashion charm with a modern twist- the cut of the dress. So awesome! When is the wedding?
