Dress Drama

So, I might cry or just totally start over on this wedding dress thing. And I apologize this is really picture heavy so it might take a bit to load.

OH** no tato viewing sorry love not sure what I want to do yet!!**

OK so I decided awhile ago that I wanted a different non-wedding dress. I tried on a couple of dresses from some higher end bridal salons, regular stores, consignment stores and even tried just looking for basic white or ivory dresses at Nordstroms, Macys and even Targets odd wedding section. Here are a couple I was pretty much in love with:

But I am worried they looked too Medieval, or I think I am in a metal band, running around on stage in a half untied corsets screaming on a stage... ok yes I love the style, but not for a wedding.

I decided that I'd really like a dress similar to the gorgeous Inara from Firefly. I gave in and decided to get it made.

So here is what I had made.

It is supposed to be fitted to the measurements I gave her and I can barely keep the top from sliding down. I wanted a soft ivory and its a little more champagne-colored than I had asked for. And the sleeves are a really stiff and not the jersey fabric I wanted. Then look at the corset bodice... yes it is really crooked and I cannot fix it at all. and it doesnt REALLY go with the birdcage veil that I want or the aqua accents I wanted to add.

Here is a newer inspiration: Just this ivory dress with a blue cardigan. Or this blue dress with a cardigan.
