- Wedding: May 2011
I’m really happy to announce that being a plus-size girl I was SOOO relieved to stumble across Casablanca at our local boutique here. While the sizes available in store were still too small, I was elated to find out that they will custom make ANY size according to my measurements!! The way I see it, I may not look like the typical bride, but I searched long and hard to find the man of my dreams and so I deserve to at least FEEL like a princess for a day! So anywho…I’m looking for some ideas or suggestions about my ideas for my dress. Here’s what I’m deciding on:
I really love the idea of 1900, but am learning to love 1923 as well. Being that we can essentially mix and match whatever we want I am thinking that I would like the bust of 1923 with either regular straps or strapless. (I’m way too top heavy for halters, they always yank on my neck!) Then I would like from the bust down to be the lacey 1900 design. Then if possible, a laceup/corset back.
I really need something empire-waist with an a-line silhouette (Overall 1900 exemplifies this perfectly.) because being a plus size girl with a belly, I can’t have anything form fitting as I think it wouldn’t be flattering at all.
Tell me what you think and if anyone has ANY of their own pictures in their Casablanca gowns, especially those who are wearing 1900 & 1923, post them! I’m so excited to see what it looks like! I want to be 100% sure of my choice before I spend at least $1000!
