I really wanted a white sleek gown, but had the worst experience dress shopping, cause there was nothing without frills available in my size (5‘ 11, US 14). I ended up going a different route altogether. We got married in traditional costume and I made my own dress.

I had the ballgown until my seamstress ruined it two weeks before my wedding, so then I bought the trumpet. Very happy she ruined it as I loved my dress so much!
