I work on a wedding fashion magazine so I have plenty of photos/information and lately nightmares with some wedding firms :grin:

Right know I'm 'organizing' some editorial with the magazine in collaboration with a photographer with emerging firms, so I'm planning some styles, it's so much fun! We're doing vintage bride (but modern, with a big and pretty crown of peonnies), hippie-hipsterish bride (perfect for a beach wedding!) and a romantic and very classy bride. I'll see if I can share some pics with you all!

@littlebirdwings : you look lovely :shy: It is a very pretty dress!

I like 1920s style as well.

Do you think it's too cliche though? Because of the Great Gatsby being so popular this year and everyone throwing parties with 1920s themes?

It is definitely a trend this season, both as a bride (with some details) or as a guest (as a total flapper girl). I think it looks good if done correctly with subtle details, and not cliche at all (just don't over do it):

My utterly ridiculous dream wedding dress was probably part of the Givenchy couture f/w 10 line (see image 1) however, unless I look EXACTLY like image 2 on my big day then I see no point in getting married at all. haha.
My dream wedding dress was shown today at Temperly. Just gorgeous!

They're so pretty! :oops:

Some asorted images of high couture and more 'normalish' (but cute) pieces. I dont know what you girls think about short wedding dresses? (just curiosity).












(I think this one it's just too much but it's very trendy atm).


(And this one just because I love the headband).

I'm 16, which means I won't get married anytime soon but that doesn't stop me from loving wedding dresses and everything related! I even keep a folder in my computer with beautiful dresses, hairstyles, wedding bands, etc :oops:
This is my favourite one so far:



:luv:

You should use pinterest! There is so much wedding stuff on there and you can have a secret board if you don't want others to see your pins. I'm planning a wedding now and it's sooooo helpful!

Thanks for the tip :kiss: I created an account a while ago but never really used it, guess it's time to start!

Major bumping this thread! I am getting married in a few months (one of the reasons I've pretty much been MIA), and I need help with a dress. If you girls have suggestions, throw them at me! I'm looking for a more modest dress: aka no shoulders/see through unless it's just the arms. Also, I want my back covered and nothing too low. I'm also really into champagne/non-super-white dresses.

My dream would be either mock neck or three quarter sleeve dress, preferably not bright-white. Any suggestions?

This one seems to fit your description:

A good tailor can also change a lot of the details to make the dress perfect for you. For example, with the last dress (Prospere) it would be a quick fix to have that neckline altered so it's not so deep.

Congratulations by the way!!

Aw, no problem :luv:. I got married two years ago but I still love looking at dresses and imagining what I would wear on my now improved bod!

You might be able to find the previous seasons BHLDN on a pre-owned site like this one, I know people who have purchased and sold on them and have all had good experiences:

(extra bonus, Vlada is modeling that one)

I'm not really a fan of most wedding dresses (or formal dresses in general) but...

This is the one I'm talking about!!! Thank you!! Vlada vlada? It doesn't look like Vlada R to me so is it another?

Edit: I see it now :) I think my boobs might be too big for this dress hahah.. I'm between a 32 and 34 so I'm nervous. But with the weightless I have I should be smaller.
