Privacy panels go behind the lacing of a corseted dress. They're not necessary, unless you don't want your skin to show through. The dress that sunnydays and I both bought has a full on corset in it, which meant that even with my well-endowed chest I did not need to wear any kind of foundation garment under it. I chose, instead, to really let the lacing sing and allowed my skin to peak through. I will note that one of my panels was sewn in, low, so that my underwear did not peak out. This is what it looked like:

Thanks! I've put up just a few from the professional photos on flickr, I don't have the time to do a ton of post-processing [and they all need some level of it] and just pulled that one out to illustrate this.

Did you wear a butterfly wing necklace or is it glass?  Pretty, either way!

I don't feel bad posting about the necklace here because it WAS handmade, just not by me.



It is a real Blue Morpho butterfly wing, sandwiched by two pieces of glass, soldered together with hematite bead details. I picked it out as my wedding gift from my husband [he wanted something awesome, but couldn't really figure out what]. I love it and I wear it all the time. It came from Neile's Etsy Shop

I ended up wearing just tiny studs in all three of the holes in my ears, 2 stainless steel and one titanium, they're the earrings I wear everyday but the bright silver and darker grey studs totally matched the bead-like detailing on the necklace's edge.

Awesome!!  I thought I recognized the piece.  I adore Neile's stuff.  I think my hubby needs to buy me a belated wedding present inspired by yours. Grin

OK.... yeah, totally not seeing the picture where Bon was wearing that necklace. And now I can't find your post with all your wedding stuff.
Did you count that as your "something blue"?
Speaking of  ^  I wonder if everybody on this board did all of those wedding supersitions -something old, new, borrowed, blue (and a sixpence in her shoe) and what they used for each category
Ugh I'm so incredibly sleepy, so if this isn't making sense, excuse me.

It's on my flickr page. Here's the set with some photos from the day of

I had a LOT of something blues since my wedding colors were turquoise, orange and chocolate brown.

something old: shawl pin, it was a 1920's art deco sapphire hat pin bought on ebay. There's a photo on flickr in my wedding planning set.
something new: well, pretty much everything, actually.
something borrowed: blue nailpolish borrowed from fellow craftster Kaesea for the painting of my toenails
something blue: necklace, shawl, shoes, toenail polish.

No sixpence for me though.

Oh, der. I knew that (your colors.)
Yeah, I'm pretty sure most people nowadays don't do the sixpence thing. Especially in America.
