- Wedding: August 2013
My future sister-in-law is making my wedding dress. She’s an extremely talented clothing designer and I am thrilled that she wants to do this for me!
I’m having trouble with what kind of dress I want. I know I want a short dress as the wedding and reception will be entirely outside and I want something as low maintenance as possible. I’d also would like something vintage looking. But my “knows” stop there. None of the bridal shops I’ve been to have more than two short dresses so it’s impossible for me to know exactly what I want. I’ve looked online but I haven’t seen anything that totally blows me away. I’m so glad that she’s designing this dress for me because I have the ability to pick and choose which elements I like best, but I need to find some dresses I like first!
I’m 5’8″, thin/athletic build, but very flat (strapless is a definite no). Any brides out there willing to share pictures of their dresses for me to get inspiration from? I promise not to be a copycat! 🙂
