First Dress Photos

What a wedding and honeymoon! I'll be responding to your comments from the past few weeks, posting a bunch of photos, and more soon.  For now, here are a few photos from my new husband's and my wedding!

Necklace, earrings, and wrap

You can see the petals here, and the wrap from the back.  I stepped on the dress during my first dance and pulled out the bustle ribbons.  The dress had lengthened with the humidity and was too long all the way around the day of.

Front of the dress, in dancing action!

Gorgeous--congratulations! It looks so nice with all the petals. It's so well done! And the necklace is gorgeous.
I finished mine last night (I also used that Vogue pattern). It turned out a little wrinkly in the bodice since I altered the pattern to fit more tightly through the hips, but otherwise pretty successful. I'm going to add a belt. Did you steam yours to get all the wrinkles out or press?

So beautiful!! If the dress was too long, it sure doesn't show in the pictures. Just gorgeous!

Oh, this is truly stunning. What an amazing feeling of accomplishment you must have from sewing your own wedding dress! I really love it, very stylish and sophisticated with just the right amount of detail. You look gorgeous, congratulations!
