I am not beginning my hunt for the dress yet. However, I do have a few ideas for dresses I love. Every prom, homecoming, gala dress I have ever worn has been tea-length. Don’t ask me why. I always go into the store with the intention of purchasing a full-length gown, but I just look best in a sweetheart neckline, a-line, tea-length organza or tulle dress. Every time, without fail.
I’ve been browsing for the dress “look” I want, although I refuse to buy anything to wear on the wedding without seeing it in person and trying it on. So, the beginning of the madness: the dress “look.”
I found this flirty frock on Vera Wang, although it’s not in the current collection, so all the more reason to just gather ideas:
It’s a little more simple than I had expected, but it’s got the right length and I love that neckline. I would say it’s my least favorite out of the four, though.
This fantastic dress is the short-version of (I can’t believe I’m referencing this) Carrie’s dress from Sex and the City from Vivienne Westwood:
It rings up at an astonishing $9,000+ dollars (for the short version), and oh-so-unfortunately, it’s all sold-out. (dripping with sarcasm). I do love the look though, it’s elegant and different from what I’m used to.
Surprisingly, this Project Runway designed gown is my second favorite. I have never watched the show and am not particularly fond of reality TV, but I do love this dress, found on Wedding Paper Divas:
I even love the headpiece.
The last and favorite of the list was featured on Poptastic Bride this morning, and I LOVE it:
Really. I love it. No, wait….really. I love it.
Which one’s your fave? Are you going with a short/long/ankle/paper/duct tape dress?
