Disillusioned Mesh

Evalix, on December 30, 2023 at 1:12 AM Posted in Wedding Attire 0 12
I honestly just feel so dumb right now. I have only been to one wedding over 20 years ago in my mom’s backyard for a little background on how much I know about weddings. I fell in love with this dress, bought it, getting it altered as we speak. Wedding is February 3rd. And after reading in forums I am just now realizing this mesh is supposed to be an illusion and match my skin tone. I just feel so defeated left and right with no guidance and doing this on my own.Disillusioned Mesh 1

    I would think just adding a bolero would help some. The illusion is rarely offered in a range of skin tones but could sometimes be dyed, but that would probably not be possible now. Do you have a veil with this dress?

    More people may be around next week that may be more helpful.

    A bolero would be a great idea! I think an off the shoulder one with pearls on it would really compliment the dress

    How would the pearls be place across the bolero?

    They would be scattered across the fabric

    In theory, yes, but usually mesh colors only come in 1-3 color options—hardly an exact match for most skin tones! Don’t worry about it, the sheerness of the look is what the dress is going for. ♥️

    It all worked out somehow I ended up finding a cape veil on amazon that hid the parts I was so self conscious about and it just tied the whole look together. It all looks better once you put all the details on. Disillusioned Mesh 2
