Getting married outdoors in an informal summer ceremony in 6 months. I'm 5ft 9 and a smallish size 12 now although hope to be a 10 by the wedding. I don't have the budget to throw thousands at a dress but would spend up to about Â£500 on something if it was really lovely. Even that feels like crazy money for a dress I'll wear once! I love temperley dresses (way out of my reach). Would quite like a dress with sleeves and not too 'princess' Can anyone point me toward a good place to start?
Hadn't thought of ghost or monsoon but both are a great start. Feel like lots of ghost dresses are quite slinky and I have a c-section overhang that would I think would show through. Unless you can fix that sort of thing with clever underwear?
I'm one of the organisers of a wedding fair in London, A Most Curious Wedding Fair. For our promo shoot we used dresses by Free People which are reasonable in terms of cost, we just love their laid back, boho/summery/hippy vibe. Someone else mentioned Minna whose dresses are gorgeous, she will be exhibiting at our fair too. Another option is to go second hand or find the dress you want but try to get it in a sample sale. Check out the link below and you can see the images and if you scroll down there are links to Free People, and others used in the shoot. Best of luck with your search! x
