I am getting married abroad this summer, and want a very unusual dress. I am currently a size 14 but hope to trim down a but!

I love this dress www.pinterest.com/pin/452611831272479247/
Hopefully that link will work! I can't find out where to get the dress from.. any ideas? Or any similar dresses for inspiration?

Not working for that picture.. This is why I don't lie pintrest, so many good ideas it's frustrating not being able to use them!

I love the green dress you posted, much more original than the light blue one. I don't think it would be too warm, it doesn't look very heavy and your arms will be bare.

Oh... I don't know... What should I do?

The photo of the blue dress comes from a photographers site, looks like in Baltimore. Maybe look at US dress sites?

Unless you are on a REALLY strict budget, why don't you order the green dress and see what it is like? I bet you could always resell it on e-bay if you don't like it. And if you like the style but it is a bit cheap looking it will give you a model to show to a dressmaker.

nevergoogle, that dress is amazing!!!!! Really really beautiful.

OP, I got married in black and white. My dress was a one off Maggie Sottero (sp?) and was fab - I've had so many lovely comments about mine!

Go for whatever you fancy - love your choice but you're right that it might be a bit warm...

Just clicked on the blue dress, it looks very chic and doesn't it go beautifully with those red roses! I am a size 14 and it is just the kind of 50's style I often go for.

Please help me find that blue dress! I think that's the one, I prefer it to the green one I think. Or one very similar but it must have that kind of cross over top.

It doesn't seem to take you there. There is a blog called Love my dress with a similar dress by these guys [http://candyanthony.com/] They don't have any prices listed confused but there is a similar style on their front page and they seem to have a variety of colours.

Prices start at £795.. Thats a bit out of my price range. Lovely dresses though grin

Look up Kelseys Creations. She's fab and lovely too.

this has the crossover top but varies quite a lot otherwise.
crossover again but not the same. They make them in loads of colours
To my mind this (also loads of colours) has more the feel of the pinterest dress
this too, to a lesser extent

Itn was been pinned by these people so you could drop them an email and ask?

sunshinemmum Tue 25-Feb-14 19:45:30

Phew that is a lot! I'm wondering if a local dress maker could copy it??

What about This one

Ooh that etsy one is lovely, much nicer in the bodice than the pinterest one.

MrsLettuce Wed 26-Feb-14 08:35:00

Oh wow, that's beautiful Shosha!

Margene Wed 26-Feb-14 08:58:24

Definitely the 50s type dress - I think the green one looks a bit cheap, sorry. The blue one is lovely. Etsy have loads of beautiful vintage cocktail dresses, I'm quite tempted myself!

The blue dress is beautiful. I love the colour.

You can search for images by copy and pasting the image into google image search.

Sorry if this has been posted before, looks like they make then to order and there are some variations of style www.etsy.com/uk/listing/78313316/our-perfect-and-simple-50s-cocktail?ref=listing-shop-header-3

What do you think of this one?https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/158351563/aqua-tear-vintage-sheer-cocktail-dress
I have it in my 'cart'.. should I? I'd need to get it altered as I doubt I can get my waist that trim, but that shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Stunning!

YouAreTalkingRubbish Wed 26-Feb-14 23:58:25

I agree, it's a beautiful dress. I love the colour.

Gorgeous!
