Hi Pricescopers!

It''s been a while since I posted here, and I wanted to post an update - some pics of my dress, bridesmaids'' dress and my shoes!

I''ll be wearing this Amsale Elle gown for our ceremony, which will be in the beautiful Catholic church in my hometown in Ireland this July. My lovely new aunt (my dad''s bro married a gorge girl last October) is kindly lending me her veil - it''s an ivory lace-edged cathedral-length veil which I think will go beautifully with my dress.

I''m 5''11" and I guess around a size 6/8, but kind of pear-shaped (oh the joys of being Irish!), so I think this dress will suit my body type.

I just LOVE to dance and party with my friends, so, for the last hour or two of the reception (think from midnight on... Irish weddings tend to be long and raucous!) I''m going to change into a short dress from Priscilla - it''s actually a BMs dress, but I''ve ordered it in ivory. Can''t wait!

I''m also posting a pic of my BMs dress, also from Priscilla. I will have 3 BMs - my sister and two great friends. I''m picking out gold strappy sandals for them.

Finally, here also are my shoes - gorgeous gold/bronze Manolo Sedarabys. I love them! However, as my fiance is around the same height as me, and my Amsale dress is so long, I will probs wear some low heels for the ceremony and meal etc., and then change into my Manolos with the short dress. Can you guess that I bought these shoes before the actual gown?! haha!

Well here are the pics - let me know what you think! I think all 3 dresses go well together - they all have pockets, which I LOVE! Gotta love a dress with pockets!!

OK, so here is the Priscilla dress I''ll change into - I think the brooch ties in really well with my shoes. Only thing is, the brooch is an extra $300!!! So I''m keeping my eye out for a less expensive version!!

If you can think of anywhere that sells diamante brooches of this size/shape (long, thin), please let me know!

Thanks!

.... and here are my shoes - the diamante buckle ties in really nicely with the short dress (as long as I get a diamante brooch for it!).

I really wanted to get non-bridal wedding shoes, so that I can wear them again and again - and they are my first pair of Manolos!

Wow. Its just stunning. Makes me question getting such a fitted dress for myself! That gown is to die for.



The rest of the details sound great!

Yay more pics! I love your second dress and shoes too!

Have you looked on Etsy for a brooch? You could also possibly put in a quote request for one! I believe that function is called Alchemy.

.... and here is my bridesmaids'' dress. I really love it - I would love to have one for myself!

You can see a video of the model walking in it at http://priscillaofboston.com/dress_detail.jsp?gid=2&sfid=50835&f=
You really get a sense for the nice stiff-ish material and the movement of the dress.

Aw thanks guys!!

I will look now for more pics - I may have some pics of me in the sample, but it was a size too small, so not such great pics..! Lemme have a look and see if they''re acceptable...!

OK, so here''s a pic of me in the probs-a-size-too-small-sample dress - the top (lace bit) is a bit too short. They''re putting extra lace on mine - can get it altered out, if need be. Would hate to be showing side-boob!

NOT a great pic of me, but you get the gist!

And here is a pic of my lovely new aunt (so weird to call her aunt - she''s 34 and I''m 28!) in the beautiful veil that she is kindly lending me - it''ll be my "Something Borrowed".

Thanks all for your kind words! I don''t really get to talk about wedding stuff really, since most of my friends and all my family are back home in Ireland, so it''s nice to come on here and talk!

Anyhoo, I''m thinking of getting these shoes to wear with my "big" dress - they''re ivory, look nice, and have a low heel. I''ll change into my nice Manolos for my short dress! Whaddya think of these???

Thanks!

Love all of the dresses - I agree, the two for you should be VERY flattering on a pear-shaped figure, and the bridesmaid dresses are beautiful.

Sounds like it will be gorgeous - love the idea of a lace-edged veil to pick up the lace on your Amsale - absolutely perfect
