To give you a bit of background to this pretty post, I’ve been having a dress drama. I know I KNOW. It is the oldest bridezilla story in the book. Girl buys dress. Girl finds other dress she likes better. Girl cries and stamps feet. Girl buys another dress. Except I’ve got to the crying and stamping feet part, but not been able to get past that stage to the buying a pretty new dress part. Unfortunately this is not due to my sensible head screaming at me telling me not to be so ridiculous, it’s a WHITE DRESS for christsakes, how wrong can it be? No. I hear that, I do. It’s just that I’ve realised that the dress I’ve chosen really isn’t ‘me’ (whoever that is), and certainly isn’t my normal style, and I don’t think I’ll even feel comfortable in it on the day. Which is not really the look I was going for on the day. I was hoping to look serene, blushing, loved up, extremely pleased with myself…you know…anything but uncomfortable.
I was obviously whinging about this quite a bit, because the lovely, gorgeous, wonderful (can you tell I like her) Charlotte from Rock My Wedding heard about my self-pitying state, and emailed me and did some research and then emailed me again with some suggestions of where I could get second hand dresses from and have them shipped over to me to get fitted…..and this is where the pretty comes in (I know, you thought I’d forgotten about the pretty).
Have you ever seen Monique Lhuillier dresses? If you haven’t, and you already have your dress, now is the time to go back to twitter, or shopping or whatever it was you were doing before you came here because otherwise you may end up in the same situation as me. They are absolutely beautiful. It’s the only word I can use to describe them. Charlotte pointed out that as I would need to get the dress shipped anyway, I could look anywhere in the world, and if I could look anywhere in the world, then where better to look than Monique Lhuillier…?
