    Have you seen these dresses by Joan Shum? She has an etsy store, but her dresses were featured at Kleinfields. Here is the suit dress. Check out her other ones too!!

    I’ve always been charmed by how Rita Hayworth looked when she married Aly Khan. In my mind I was thinking it was a suit but it looks like it’s a belted dress, but the effect is similar I think.

    I would consider something like this depending on the overall vibe of the wedding. For a wedding with all the traditional trappings, traditional venues (eg, church followed by hotel ballroom/banquet hall), etc., it might seem a little odd. If you were having, say, a cocktail reception in an old house then a look like this would be more fitting. It’s smart and sophisticated as opposed to dreamy and romantic.

    i def would do something like this if i was having a smaller scale wedding, but i think i am not unconventional enough to pull it off with our 150-person, ballroom reception wedding!

    @Miss Pez:  You know, I have been wondering the same thing.  I don’t wear dresses, so I don’t think I would feel comfortable in a dress for my wedding.  I think they are beautiful, but I don’t want to be tugging at my sleeves or tripping on my dress all day!  I have been looking ebay at vintage skirt suits, and there are some lovely ones, and they are pretty affordable, for the most part.  My big question is whether to stick with white or go with something else…my wedding colors are dark blue and white, so a dark blue/navy blue suit would work, but white would also be fine.  What do you bees think about not going with the traditional white but rather with a blue skirt suit or something like it?
