Does anyone fancy helping me find a wedding dress?
So, after coming up 5 years of being engaged DP has finally accepted we won't be having the big fancy show off wedding of his dreams and we've booked the local registry office for May this year Now I need to get a wiggle on and find a dress! I don't want a typical wedding dress but then I'm not too sure what I do want. We've got 2 kids already so I think I'd look daft stood there pretending to be a virgin in white! In my mind Im picturing something a bit boho/hippy. You know like with flowers in wavey hair. Either that or something a bit special with some sparkle to it.
I'm a size 12/14 at the moment but still losing baby weight, 5"3. Problem areas are short legs, wee bit of a tummy still and a big bum.
Oxfam have a website with vintage wedding dresses some are very 80's but you might find something you like. Seen some wedding dress shops with sales on at the moment so you might get yourself a bargain.
