- Wedding: June 2014
Hi bees! My fiance and I are planning a somewhat spontaneous wedding for this June (we’ve been engaged since last July, but have just now settled on a good date!). I posted a bit more about it here, looking for decor inspiration: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/woodsy-wedding-inspiration/#axzz2ydHCPHvP
I’m kind of at a loss of what kind of dress to wear. I’m finding it hard to strike a balance between casual for the venue (a forested campsite) and appropriate for the occassion (um, I’m getting married!). It will be pretty hot, so I’m trying to avoid sleeves, long length, heavy fabric, and thick undergarments. Style-wise, I LOVE everything carried at BHLDN, as well as 1950s and 60s sillhouettes. Budget-wise, I would love to stay under $200 but might go above for something I really love.
Do you have any suggestions of what to wear for a summertime, casual outdoor wedding in the woods?
Some dresses I love (apologies–I tried to embed images but non of them were the right size)…
Very simple and inexpensive… but too simple? http://shopruche.com/far-off-land-lace-dress.html
I love the style of this 1950s reproduction on Etsy, but it’s on the pricier end of what I’m looking at: https://www.etsy.com/listing/74224382/simple-and-elegant-50s-style-dress-ivory?ref=sr_gallery_2&sref=sr_11c5a46a052913c8d246f8710daf7bd182db1a04a58125f038f70cbb677f14d8_1372640614_14101327_tea_length&ga_search_query=1950s+tea+length+wedding+dress&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=4&ga_search_type=all
I would have bought this David’s Bridal dress if we were doing a city hall wedding. The pictures are just okay, but it looks great on me 🙂 But I feel like it might be too fancy for an outdoor campsite wedding. What do you think? http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Satin-One-Shoulder-Gown-with-Pearl-Embellishment-EJ2M2072_Bridal-Gowns-Shop-By-Silhouette-Short
This dress from Modcloth is beautiful and I think it would look great on me, but again, I think the fabric choice might make it too formal for an outdoor space: http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses/aisle-be-there-dress-in-lily
