As per previous thread ordered this Delphine manivet for la redoute wedding dress for 120 (had a fifty off voucher) this is me trying it on sans makeup bra and decent shoes.

I think it is going to look great, and what a bargain!

It looks absolutely fab - well done you!

Oh, it's cute!
I love a short wedding dress.

Is it too late to return?

You look gorgeous, and have just the right figure for it. What kind of shoes and flowers were you thinking of?

Looks better on you than on the model.

It looks fabulous!

And you look all 50's and hourglassy. You need some bright shoes and accessories.

Love it!

I think you look great. Congratulations thanks

It's really cute. Very understated. I like it!

I'd wear it with red shoes. :-)

I love it! It really does look better on you than the model.

TheSitChewAceChien Thu 13-Mar-14 18:00:28

I agree with pippop, it does look better on you than the model. Lovely!
Congratulations smile

Agree it looks better on you than on the model - you look amazing. Love it.

It's lovely! Another vote for it looking better on you than on the model.

It looks so much better on you than the model. It's lovely.

HootHootTootToot Thu 13-Mar-14 18:06:17

I LOVE it on you and I 100% agree that it looks better on you than on the model.
It is beautiful. smile How will you do your hair?

specialsubject Thu 13-Mar-14 18:20:54

very pretty! Make sure you can walk properly in the shoes you choose, the 'pregnant duck' walk may be fashionable but it isn't a good look!

(and doesn't it show up why models should smile? The sulky face really makes the dress look awful!)

I wish you a lovely day and every happiness.

Allalonenow Thu 13-Mar-14 18:22:24

Oh it's fab! Do have your hair up to show off the deep cut back. Are you going to get an underskirt that will frill out the skirt a bit? What about shoes, if you don't fancy red what about gold?

strawberryblondebint Thu 13-Mar-14 18:23:38

Awwwwww blush I'm so pleased. I'm totally up for hair and shoe ideas. Can't do high shoes but may make the effort. I want a brooch bouquet though. Any excuse to trawl charity shops. I have a thing for green shoes. Is this possible.
Atsea79 confused
It's my second go at this wedding malarkey and I'm totally doing it all my way only.
Yey I have the frock!!!!!
Incidentally whilst I was trying that on and taking selfies my two year old pooed in the bath for the first time (proud). ... Only on mumsnet lol
