1 Month To Go – Dress Sneak Peek

Just a short post, as we’re off shortly to try to find Paul an outfit. Like me, he doesn’t want to wear something desperately traditional – he’s thinking either an interesting jacket and trousers (as opposed to a matching suit) or a waistcoat without a jacket. We shall have to see what Bluewater has along those lines…

My bridesmaids have all been sending me pictures of the dresses they will be wearing (I let them choose). It’s safe to say they are all going to look fantastic. So far there will be two bridesmaids in green, one in red, one in blue and one in black (there are still three whose dresses I’ve not seen yet). It’s going to be fabulously colourful, and I think the dresses will look great with the oriental fans that I gave the girls instead of bouquets.

As it’s getting so close to the day, I thought I would give you just a little sneak peek of my dress. It’s an original 1970s lightweight maxi dress with a little bit of floral fabric trim. Originally it was see-through (was obviously worn by a VERY chilled out bride) so a dressmaker has kindly added in some extra layers to protect my dignity.

Here’s a sneak peek of the fabulously ’70s fabric trim:

I can’t wait to wear it on the day!

    Gorgeous – love the sneak peak!
    Love it when brides (and grooms)-to-be opt for something different and outside the “traditional” comfort zone. So excited for you!
    Great blog – look forward to checking in again in a months time after the big day to see how your fabulous blend of colours came together.
    All the best to you & Paul, from Laura & the team at Happy Heritage.

    So pretty, I really do love your style Angharad.
    I think you should share some more sneak peeks of your dress on Edible Glitter, and then I can print them, cut them out and make a jigsaw to see more!
