As promised, here are some pics of the ceremony dress in progress with the two button options. I only had a few buttons done---in the final look the buttons will go all the way up the back. Ok, so the red ones are just scraps of fabric cut in circles, but it gives you the idea.
I like the red more than I thought I would, but am still a bit torn over which to do. Plain ivory ones just disappeared into the fabric, so those are definitely out of the running. But I like both of these and am still open to suggestions. I need to get hopping on a decision though.
ETA: There will be 20 buttons going from the point of the red train up to the neckline of the dress.
A separate issue.....anyone out there know how to make the train keep that pretty pretty circle shape even as I walk down the aisle in it? The beaded edging definitely helps some, but it does collapse a bit as I walk.
AAAHHHHH!!!! Less than two weeks!!!
