I have always loved everything vintage. So, it is really no surprise that I added elements into our big day. However, I did add a few modern touches.
Like I said, my dress was something I immediately fell in love with when I saw it and I tried it on. It was exactly what I was looking for, from the straps to the lace fabric. I chose a La Sposa by Pronovias dress, and it called to me. I'm not going to reveal the dress on here, for fear that someone may see. Only my mom knows the exact dress, but I will at least reveal that it's from La Sposa's Ruffle Collection.
I will reveal that it is mermaid style, with lots of lace and ruffle. It is perfect! It fits perfectly. It was the first and only dress I tried on. I didn't need to try on any others. It fit me like it was made for me. There are slight alterations needed, like the straps being shortened just a bit. The hem, however, will be more complicated, as there are layers of different fabrics. It will be quite the undertaking, but I'm thankful that the seamstress at the bridal shop has had experience with this dress. Thank God!
I can reveal my accessories. I went to a trunk show for Toni Federici, and instantly loved the styles and hair accessories that could be used to create a veil look. I chose a birdcage with little rhinestone detailing along the bottom. I had it custom-made to stop below my chin, instead of being a blusher.
I only chose the veil part, not this hair accessory. I went with more plumage. It was too pretty to pass up.
I also chose a vintage hairstyle that Diane Kruger sported. I'm going to bring the pics along to my consultation, and see if they may recreate it. I will post the consultation pictures once I have the meeting with the stylist.
Everything will come together under my dress...with my shoe selection. The shoes have a nice, low heel, so I don't tower over my honey or my dad (who's a shorty, like me).
The shoes are really sparkly in person, and extremely easy to walk in. That was what I wanted without having to sacrifice prettiness. :)
