My first dress fitting

I’m so excited to share these pictures with everyone!  The only good pictures I had were of the back of my dress, on a model, so it’s wonderful to finally share what my dress looks like on me!!

Yesterday was my very first dress fitting for alterations, and my next one will be in about a month. Hopefully that will be it, but I’ve left myself some time in case more needs to be done.  I think I’ll be okay – I’m only having the top taken in and the length shortened slightly.  Other than that, it fit like a glove!

I brought along my orange shoes, my “shapewear”, and a veil a family friend is willing to let me borrow.  After she was finished pinning….. :

And here is a picture of the vintage brooch I bought off of Ebay last week, to pin under the bustline:

Along with a vintage bracelet:

Okay, so I’d like your advice!  What do you think of the veil??  Is it too short?  I think the comb is a little large, but I could deal with that.  I’ll be wearing my hair in a low bun, kind of like the last picture, and will have a fluffy flower piece in from Myra at Twigs & Honey.  Any suggestions or ideas??

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
