i'm having some trouble deciding what sort of dress i want for my wedding. i'm 99% set on vintage, but it's so hard to find one that i love that's also the right size. i also can't decide between long and short. i guess deciding on what i want the wedding to be like would go a long way to helping me decide on a dress style, but even that's tough - do i want something more traditional, or just something fun, something that feels like me and sam? there's definitely a part of me that wants to wear a short, fun, vintage dress, maybe not even a white one, and walk down the aisle to a kinks song or something. but i don't know. there is a little, girly part of me that just wants a nice long dress that makes me feel beautiful, and a veil over my face, and a string quartet. anyway, here are some that have caught my eye.
all above are from all over etsy; i've lost track.
this one from sarah seven. she has such beautiful dresses, but i think most of them are too short for my family. . .
this one from posh girl vintage (obviously.)
**edit: and then part of me REALLY wants to say f it and do something like this:
hey, it's something blue, right?
to answer a couple questions i neglected in the last post: hi lizzie! i haven't chopped the dress apart yet - the only alteration so far has been to remove the ribbon thingie from the front. i honestly don't know what i'm doing with that dress. i hate how it looks on me but i so love how it looks on a hanger. still puzzling over that one.
robin: i used this baguette recipe. if you're going to use it for sandwiches, like i did, i'd spray it with water lightly rather than paint it on - mine was delicious but a bit too crusty for a banh mi. this is a handy recipe, though, because most baguettes take at least 24 hours to make, and these ones were ready within an afternoon.
