- Wedding: April 2013
Howdy. I’m going with a very Art Deco/Nouveau style dress. I will be designing my dress with my Mom, and she will make it. My grandmother was a custom wedding gown designer, so we all grew up expecting she would be making our dresses. Alas, we lost her many years ago so the hat is now on my Mama. I will end up helping with some of the sewing / beading. I’m not that superstitios, and am too much of a control freak to beleive in the “you can’t sew a stitch on your own dress” thing…
Since I got engaged last November every word out of her mouth is dress dress dress… I hadn’t been ready to even think about that part yet. We hadn’t even found a venue or set a date… Our original plan was Barefoot Blacktie on the Beach, which would have wanted a different style (would have always been vintage) than the amazing Art Deco Ballroom we ended up in.
BUT – Yippee… Now that we HAVE a venue, HAVE set a date, HAVE ordered our Save the dates – ITS DRESS TIME!
I have been pulling photos from magazines & books for about a year, have also been internet searching… Attached are the 1st compiled Inspiration boards based only on the internet searches… Let me know what you think!
