Im so excited, Im not getting married till 2014, but I couldnt wait! I have just ordered my dress! and of all places i found it on etsy!
It is a bias cut crepe back satin number that is loosley inspired by the 1930 style dresses. I love it!
This is it! I have tried on a few similar styles and i love it because it is unusual. I did find while dress shopping they all started to look the same. I will however have it made in ivory.
Cant wait to get it and try it on.. now the waiting begins..
The only thing that concerns me about it is the little flowers on it, but if i dont like them i will take them off.
Because she is a one person business she is almost all ready fully booked out for 2013! fingers crossed I can get it by november. Cant wait to try it on!
What do you think, do you like it?

I freaking love it. Very classy and elegant in the Jenny Packham/Claire Pettibone style.
May I ask how much you paid for it?

I would lose the flowers, they cheapen what would would otherwise be a very beautiful 1930s inspired dress.

@clairebbbear: Its only $600 US!! which for a wedding gown in Aus as you know is very reasonable!
I am a HUGE fan of both Jenny packham and Clair Pettibone but unfortunatly I can not afford on of their dresses 🙁 So when I found this one a little bit of wee came out with excitement!

Oh my gosh, I LOVE it! Pure class, unique, and I definitely see that upper class 30s flair. Sure, I wouldn’t pick it, because I’m shaped like a pear, but I am SO glad gorgeous dresses like this exist, and brides like you can wear them!
P.S., love the flowers too.

Gorgeous! I love that 1930s silhouette, so glamorous and chic. I would lose the flowers too, they kind of distract from the clean silhouette and are bit childish.

@wifey2be: Wow, that is a bargain. And you’re sadly right about dress prices in Aus. Which is why I’m having mine made by a dressmaker instead.
Oh, and I think you should reduce the flowers but not lose them entirely. I would get rid of the ones on the back and the shoulders, because they detract from the lacey pattern, but keep the ones on the bust.

Ooh so pretty and unique! I’m not sure about the flowers, they seem to take away from the chic elegance.
