- Wedding: November 2011
I found this dress on eBay before I was even technically engaged. 🙂 I’d been hunting around for a 1930s style vintage piece but everything was in iffy shape or had puff sleeves. Then I saw this evening gown, by Alexander McQueen. Fell in love instantly. My favorite designer, the bias cut I wanted. It also has crazy strong shoulders, but they’ve grown on me.
Just to be sure, I dragged a friend around to 3 different actual salons to try on “official” wedding gowns…nothing came close. So now I’m getting married in a super simple evening gown. No real train to speak of. Absolutely no embellishment at all.
I do kind of wish it was whiter than ivory, I think I look kind of sickly in ivory…is it possible to lighten a fabric, or do I risk ruining it?
