    I voted that I stick to the theme, but I wanted to explain what I meant by it. I will probably get inspired a lot by the 1930s in my wedding, but it doesn’t mean I will try to stick to that theme as if I was trying to make an absolute reconstitution of every historical detail of that era. Yes, the dress I’ll choose will have vintage inspirations ; that’s why I came up with the 1930s theme in the first place. But maybe it’ll have more of a ’40s feel or style in the end. It doesn’t matter. What matters is that I will make the theme my own, and not the other way around.

    @futuremrswood25:  I love fairies too and wish I could have had a dress that a fairy would wear! I never thought about it. Did you end up finding a dress?

    @laken.oliver:  I had a 1920s themes wedding too! I got a dress called Yolanda by Claire Pettibone, which had enough of a vintage feel to work with the theme. CP also has a beautiful dress called Kristene which is very 20s feeling. Jenny Packham also has some beautiful dresses that are very of that era. But in the end I’d say wear whatever you feel most beautiful in. There are many ways to get your theme across besides the dress.

    @Lindarella:  Ooh, good to know. At all the Scottish stores I went to in the area they had these full tartan dresses that they were retailing as wedding dresses. I just said no to those. 🙂

    @laken.oliver:  Ifi was doing a theme i would try to find a dress that fit it unless something screamed to me …. and if somethin else did i have  going away dress i put on maybe 2 hours b4 everthing is done that was very in theme just to capture it at leadt for some of hte night but i am a bit of a perfectionist 

     

    its like now my venue i want is a bit smaller so i feel like i need a less full dress its also more formal so i feel like i should get something with more glam feel oringally i wanted boho hippy gypsy vibe head chains and everhting … now i looking more vintage glam

    @laken.oliver:  i would take them for sure b.c. u want the dress to mesh well with them b.c. the touches will tie in the theme and then any dress you adore can be the dress if they all work together and u know u order the dress so it will lift off alot of stress
