many of you will know i LOVE simple white wedding dresses, think of Rosa Clara, Pronovias Irune etc. No lace, no frills, no folds, no tulles, nothing. just plain smooth matt white fabric. i especially love long sleeves or 3/4 sleeves *opaque* only, and a slight vintagey feel. Also I like it very modest and very white because we are very religious. my bridesmaids will also be wearing white dresses but obviously i will have a veil and full bridal gear
also i am a petite bride of only 160cm tall (around 5 ft 3) and weigh about 112lbs / 55kg. My complexion is of latino origin, olive skin, waist length dark brown hair,brown eyes.
sadly this means that most dresses i like make me look like mormon (i’m not) or frumpy and non-weddingy. i could be mistaken for a bridesmaid!
my dresspiration pics are the swedish royal wedding, and these:
i was worried i would have dress regret as I missed out on the normal bridal lace and tulle.
after a couple viewings of nightmare ones and weird vintage problems, I finally came across this one.
i have kind of settled that I will never be bowled over by a dress. I dont think i will find an awesome one, but this one has most of what i like – modest, jewel neck, long sleeves, plain style, bridal buttons. its also clearly bridal which is hard to find with my wishes of the simple style.
i feel a bit excited as this is the only bridal dress i have liked. most of the ones i liked were just plain white ones or bridesmaid ones .
my questions are
do you think it is kind of bland? a bit boring? if you saw a bride in a church in this what would you think?
would it be ok on a petite bride of only 1.6m / 5ft 3? i never thought i would go for a ballgown! I want to show my petite figure and not be too swamped by a big dress.
i would like to wear it with wrist length white gloves. wold that be weird?
it is matt white silk with the only embellishment being a row of bridal buttons at the back, and subtle white lace applique to the bottom hem, waist and neckline.
also what veil would /could you wear with this?
and i fear i will trip, are flat shoes ok
