- Wedding: August 2013
Starting to tear my hair out a little bit with dress shopping. Stress levels not helped by shop assistants telling me I’ve already left it very late to start looking for a dress (wedding is at the end of August next year), combined with only having Saturdays to shop (work full time and shops not open on Sundays in UK) while also trying to plan for Christmas which we’re hosting at our house and will be the first time our parents will meet!
Anyway, found a dress online the other day which made me go WOW! From the picture I saw it was almost my perfect dress if I was designing it myself. The problem is I really didn’t like the back of it when I saw it. It’s already bustled up and has a bubble hem. I’d prefer it to fall straight down and have a normal hem. Anyway, before I start trying to find somewhere I can buy a ‘sample dress’ for cheaper and then paying to have extensive alterations done, I thought I’d turn to the collective knowledge of the bee to see if anyone knew of any dresses that look similar to my dream dress but have a different back to them!
The dress is Sottero & Midgley Rebecca (or Rebecca Louise, which is the taffeta version with different embellishments). I love the tight fitting top, corset closure and beautiful drape of the skirt.
Here’s a link to it with 3 different views:
Thank you for any help!
