- Wedding: October 2013
We’re getting married in early October in. Very simple, relaxed affair. I’m wearing a tea length 1950s-ish looking wrap dress in a silvery sage colour with a white swing petticoat underneath to give it some fullness (see pic). Because it will still be quite cool despite being spring and the ceremony is outside, I’ve also bought a vintage sapphire mink stole (pic below). Am having my long blonde/silver hair up in a simple classic french roll and wearing some gorgeous vintage crystal earrings and 1950s style make up with classic red lips and nails.
The only thing I’m still trying to decide is what colour heels to wear. It’s between having a pair dyed to match my dress or adopting for vibrant red shoes.
I know there are plenty of brides out there who opt for bright coloured shoes but from the pics I’ve seen online most are wearing the classic bridal white or ivory hence the bright pop of colour.
Any thoughts, experiences, advice or links to share would be most appreciated.
