Since I created a Wedding Inspired Pinterest board in July of last year, I have been fielding questions left and right about “my engagement”. I’ve had to politely remind folks that when I am engaged they will most definitely know, and oh, by the way? Nearly 99.9% of the girls that have a wedding board on Pinterest aren’t engaged. So, friends, followers, readers, and concerned citizens: I am not engaged. I just like pinning wedding stuff, because…well, I’m more ridiculously obsessed with weddings than I previously thought.
I’ve had several readers send me tweets and emails requesting modest wedding dresses, preferably dresses with sleeves. I personally shun shrugs, boleros, jackets, and cropped tops; I’m a huge advocate of having a seamstress adding sleeves to a dress if a dress with sleeves is difficult to find (the are). Of course, price and the bride’s personal preference are generally the deciding factors when finally purchasing a wedding dress and if you want a shrug or bolero–so be it!
Married ladies, were you pleased with your wedding dress? If not, what changes would you have made? Unmarried ladies, what does your “dream” wedding dress look like? Me? I’ll know it when I see it. I’m too picky and fickle to have a dream wedding dress.
As seen on this Chinese based website; this website offers dresses inspired wedding dresses. I searched high and low for the true designer of this dress and my efforts were in vain. BigDayDress is another site that offers “knock off” wedding dresses. Their reviews seem okay, but dealing with an overseas seamstress seems a lil’ scary to me.
Elie Saab Haute Couture (S/S 2012); the style of this dress is elegant and I love the sleeves, neckline, and train. Blue wouldn’t be my color of choice (this is not a wedding gown, by the way); a true seamstress could make this vision come to life.
House of Micaela, Emma; Michelle Gonzalez of HoM also makes custom wedding dresses and she ships internationally.
