Ok guys – here’s the thing. I found my dress last year and purchased it. It came in April and I am beyond thrilled with everything about it. It is beautiful and wonderful and so many other positively descriptive adjectives!
See. Pretty sweet, right?
Anyway – Today, while purusing the wonderful world of Etsy, I found a number of awesome vintage dresses. I ended up purchasing one for some wedding related functions (which makes me so stoked!) and finding another that my SO said could count as my birthday present. Well, I wanted to make sure that it was the right dress, so I kept looking. And lo and behold, guess what happened…
I found the wedding dress I originally wanted! Well, kinda. Since it’s vintage, I didn’t really know it existed. However, it was exactly what I was looking for but could never find. (I searched for months for a vintage wedding dress, but ended up never finding just the right one.)
And now here it is, and I’m left feeling all these mixed emotions about it. Secretly, I’m just hoping someone snags it soon so I can forget about it. So if you’re in the market for a gorgeous vintage wedding dress, this one is pretty stunning 🙂
As a side note, I’m staying off Etsy for awhile. It’s just too tempting and sneaky sometimes.

I really love your original dress, especially the top. Very pretty and unique 🙂 Maybe you could get the Etsy dress for another wedding occasion or it could be a reception dress vs your ceremony dress (if you’re into that.. I myself only get 1 day to wear my wedding dress so I’ll be in it.. ALL DAY!)

I think yours is unbelievably beautiful! I would definately stick with it! and if it helps with your decision its much more “wedding” you could actually buy the second one (if its reasonably priced) and wear it to your rehersal dinner/ bridal shower or any other wedding related event!

You guys are so amazing! Thank you sooooooo much for all the sweet comments and positive reinforcement!
I really am totally in love with my wedding dress and couldn’t imagine wearing anything else now that I have it. I just always thought I’d rock a short, vintage style. It’s funny how you sometimes fall for the things you never expected.

That vintage dress doesn’t say “wedding” like yours does. Could you buy it for your rehersal or something?
