Help! with my wedding.

I am getting married, and cannot for the life of me think of what I want to get married in. I like the idea of a really funky/ cool Vivienne Westwood dress, or a coloured frock of some description. I really DON'T want to be married in white. I could maybe step to Ivory or cream, but would prefer a colour.

I quite like 50's style dresses, this is beautiful but maybe more traditional that I would like, I LOVE this but doubt I could afford it.
In terms of Viv, I'm quite into this or even this

Can anyone inspire me further? Or help accessorise? I am 5'7 and usually a 10/12

Whoops, they are all quite traditional in colour, aren't they?! Open to reds/oranges/greens in particular.

LOVE the first two! I wanted something a bit different when I got married (but wasn't into colours) so went for an open back. What time of year are you getting married?

Youremindmeofthebean Fri 22-Jul-11 12:47:17

in May or June. An open back sounds lovely, what was the rest of your dress like?

i love the first one and the viv is lovely. the last one is awful for a wedding though.

what type of venue are you having?

I love the first too. Both lovely in their own ways.

grin mumatron. I suppose I have a misguided notion of fairy-tale floaty things. Really, I am far too tall and broad-shouldered to attempt to look a bit willowy like the last dress.

Venue is likely to be an Indian tepee in a garden with English tea party and Hog roast.

youremindme I have put a picture on my profile of the back of my dress, it was quite plain and grecian from the front with just a bit of beading accross the top
