Wedding Gown Reveal!

My fiancé has promised not to look at my Blogger, and he has been blocked from viewing any wedding posts on Facebook and Livejournal. So here's my wedding gown design!

The under dress is silk charmeuse, and is removable, allowing for a shorter dress for the reception (since both receptions--one in CA and one in MI--are outside).

I finally found a scroll frame large enough to accommodate the skirt panels, so I can start on the embroidery!




Based on these two gowns:
