I already have my wedding dress. Yep, that's right, I brought one less than a month after the proposal!
I counted up the other day, and I tried on over sixty dresses before I found the one, both here and in New Zealand. I tried on vintage dresses, secondhand dresses, full frou frou wedding dresses, and simple Ivory dresses from non-wedding shops....here's a highlight reel of photos I managed to sneakily take....
this one had the most amazing back on it...lace with tiny buttons.
I liked this one...but the ribbon was in a weird place.
I think the look on my face says it all in some of these photos. I truly underestimated how time consuming and energy draining wedding dress shopping would be, the dresses are so heavy and difficult to get into! Dickie and I are having a simple ceremony by the beach near Nelson, so a huge train was out. I want to be able to pee without needing help from my bridesmaids, so endless petticoats were also a no no. I eventually went for a simple, flattering ,beautifully sewn Melbourne made dress (not pictured!) that I can now go accessory mad with!
