Oh Heaven!

Closest to perfect I've seen yet.
Pretty, but not too modest. A vintage find from etsy|wedding. Imagine it more like ankle-length, with some of Court's detail ideas mentioned previously... Maybe more of a v neckline. But I love the sheer band, adds just enough interest while keeping it simple.

It's soooo pretty.

Bex and I are getting started next weekend and I'm caught up in the fun details-

Like pleated necklines:


And fabric flowers (in clusters, but not at the neckline):


And pretty skirts:

Hammer Pants Take Over

Totally unrelated? Or am I hinting at the not-so-subtle fact that I want to wear gold hammer pants at my wedding. And have a choreographed dance. You decide.

Really, you must watch it.

Hair Accessories

I know this blog is about the dress, but it doesn't hurt to consider hair and accessories, right? I found this back in February, and I'm pretty sure I love them all.
I love wearing hats and hair stuff. I have short curly hair, and hair accessories make me look very 20s (the time period, not just my age, though I hope I still look like I'm in my 20s...). I don't plan on having a veil, so something like this would be a perfect way to kind of fancy everything up a bit. I really love the #6 fascinator, and the whole bottom row of headbands. And the whole cage veil thing is really cute too.

Or I could always go obnoxiously over the top. In this one, I wouldn't even have to bother paying attention to my hair.

I've thought about 'upcycling' my mom's dress and other family heirlooms into a wedding dress, but I'd hate to cut everything up like that...  This one was done beautifully, a friend of photographer Carina Romano of Love Me Do


Flowy, filled with family and love, comfortable... So well done!
