    • Wedding: November 2014 - Historic cinema

    Well kinda….I’m having a movie themed wedding in a cinema and my dress will be a replica of a gown from a movie!

    The dress came first though.

    We sort of had a Scottish “theme” to our wedding, but I didn’t like the all-tartan dresses that are the traditional Scottish bridal attire, so I just got a dress that I loved.

    Maybe you can post  pics of dresses you like and perhaps someone can find you something similar but closer to the vintage theme?

    We loosely had a wildflower garden theme and I didn’t go out of my way to find a dress that went with that but I ended up buying a dress that did go perfectly. It had 3D light pink flowers all over and lace. I loved it 🙂

    @laken.oliver: i didnt really know what to vote. I’m having a Midsummer night’s dream wedding, but i’ve always had a silhouette preference. and an inclination towards flowers. 

    i guess i would say that the theme is more a derivative of my bohemian-y style and love of fairies.

    though when i went dress shopping, i told the consultants that if a fairy would wear it, i would wear it.

    Girl I feel you, I am short and my little waist is my best feature, so as much as I like 1920’s silhouettes I would never personally wear one. Go with what you love!

    I do think you might be interested in an interview I read with the lady who did the costume designs for Great Gatsby. She pointed out that honestly, by 1920’s every silhouette had basically already been invented, and people wore a much wider range of styles than we typically remember or imagine!

    So you could absolutely buy a dress with a shape that you love, and then give it a more 20’s feel if it had art deco detailing on the bodice, or vintage accessories, etc!

    We are having a book themed wedding (no particular book, just bookmarks as escort cards, tables named after books, stuff like that) and I would love to have an empire waist cap sleeved dress similar to the ones in Jane Austen/Regency era:
