Love the second one, with a veil or headband, cracking pair of heels and a bunch of flowers. I'm also a lover of 50's style tea dresses x

Definitely! I think that would look amazing.

What about one of these?

The second one is beautiful! Definitely bridal- just, as you say massive underskirt and pretty jewellery- you'll look stunning smile

Love either one of them. If you had a little 50s style veil and some white gloves or something like that.
You could also run some pretty beading, embroider work around the neck line or hem.

Oh and I just found this wedding photoshoot which might be helpful

chocoholic89 Mon 12-Sep-16 08:06:29

Yeah Im thinking lace gloves or something as I do have a small tattoo on wrist and didt want it showing up on photos. Won't be doin much afterwoods maybe go out for meal so don't want to overdo it but still want to look like a bride! smile

Found another really good one. It's between these two I think Luouse Women's 1950s V Neck Vintage Cut Out Casual Party Cocktail Dresses www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01GE2V524/ref=cm_sw_r_apa_syO1xb0A7RRW8 or this one from before Anni Coco® Women's 1950s Style Audrey Hepburn Vintage Dress Rockabilly Swing Dresses X-Large White www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B019VVRB019VVRLNC LNC/ref=cm_sw_r_apa_fAO1xbKK4BF4M it's all I can think about lol x

I think the Luouse is the best of the ones you;ve linked on here. It;s a bit more detailed so looks bridal but it isn;t too bridal

Oh thank you! I love that one too.

I wouldn't wear gloves...you risk looking Minnie Mouse-ish. Get some tattoo cover makeup. It's amazing these days.

chocoholic89 Wed 14-Sep-16 11:36:45

Haha didt think of that!

VioletBam Wed 14-Sep-16 11:39:25

Oh but I see you said lace gloves...that's slightly different...still risky though! A lot depends on your arms really. I don't see why you don't show off your tattoo though....I don't have any but love the look of a nice tattoo.
