- Wedding: July 2013
So, FI and I are having a small courthouse ceremony, followed by an intimate dinner with friends and family. This is the kind of wedding we both want. First, we want the intimate, romantic air of a small wedding. Secondly, we are resolved to pay for this ourselves, so we want to keep the budget small.
The problem I have is this: if we had a huge wedding, the dress I LOVE is the Julianna by Christos
I LOVE IT. I tried on a dress that was very similar in the silhouette and fabric, and it looked awesome. The first time I saw it, I felt that this dress was just. So. Beautiful. BUT, obviously, this would look absolutely ludicrous in a courthouse, right? So, I checked out this dress that I found on modcloth that I think is fun and kicky:
I think it’s very vintage glam, and all, but… blergh… does anybody know of something that combines the dramatic fairy-princess feel of the Christos, but also has the courthouse-appropriate feel of the Modcloth dress? I guess, does anybody know of a dress that is exactly like the Christos, but is basically chopped in half with a petticoat/crinoline underneath?
Do you think a local seamstress could do this?
