Oh wow, it's beautiful!I kept going to comment, then having to scroll back up and look at these photos again. They're glorious!And where did you get the little cardy/jacket? It's perfect!
ooo this made me all teary!!
freaking incredible. !
wow! this dress, cardigan and not to mention the beautiful photos are absolutely stunning and perfect.
Thank you girlies! GS, the cardigan came from Monsoon. I saw it a year ago but they sold out of my size straight away, then eventually I found it on ebay. I was so pleased that it went ok with the dress as I wasn't sure it would! Littlewinterbride, The Boy and The Bridesmaid took some really beautiful photos!
OH! I'm gasping for breath because it's all so gloriously beautiful. So detailed yet simple; a little bit elegant, a little bit vintage...stunning. And the last photo of the layers is just beyond words.
These photos together are such a gorgeous set. I actually really like having things revealed in little tidbits instead of seeing everything at once. The dress looks like you, and everything you have described about yourself thus far. I think you are so beautiful!
So gorgeous...it is unbelievable!
I love it. I especially love the ruffly lacy hem... with the shoes!
i was wondering how a distinctive, original, individual girl like you found a dress at pronovias, but now it all makes sense! you found the one, made-for-you needle in the heap of indistinct, unoriginal needles in the haystack! (this is not a critique of pronovias dresses, i almost bought one myself.) your dress is perfect and you're going to look like a dream. yay.
OMG is that your dress? it's flippin' gorrgoeus girlie! beautiful photography too.
Thank you so much for all of your lovely comments, they've really made my day. I've really missed having the opinions of other women, The Boy and one of our bridesmaids are the only people who've seen it and sometimes you need some girly points of view!
FF, what a description! A little bit elegant, a little bit vintage was exactly what I hoped it would be! And I love the layers too. I thought they were a bit much until The Boy took that photograph and now I love them! Jenna, thank you. You're so sweet. Susan, thank you!East Side, the shoes are perfect! Thank you so much for your help with them! You saved the wedding outfit! Marli, yes a lot of Pronovias' dresses are very undistinctive. Luckily they have so many that there were a few gorgeous ones! Kat, it sure is lady! Thank you!
Pronovias??this dress looks completely vintage.I love it.
oh!oh!oh!It's that beutiful my dear. I love love love love it, and you know how my dress trials go on and on...You are going to look just so stunning (you already do!)xo
Laura, I'm so glad you think so! I was starting to wonder if I had just convinced myself that it looked vintage out of desperate desire for it to do so! Meg, it means so much to me that you love it! I regard you as one very stylish woman!
It's beautiful!! The picture of your hemline and shoes should be framed.I'm glad it made you smile - that's what a wedding dress SHOULD do!
absolutely breathtaking.... love it!!
These pictures are absolutely beautiful! I love, love, love the dress!
So amazingly beautiful... it literally made me gasp! Just perfect!
incredible! that neckline is to-die-for. you found an absolutely breathtaking dress!
So, so lovely! I gasped when I saw it... you will look so beautiful!What is the name of the style?
omg dude, i am NEVER moved by a dress, and SOMEONE ELSE'S dress at that!! i love it, and you know i'm jealous and wish i had something i loved too...
Thank you so much!Riley, you're right. It should make you smile. I was so worried it wouldn't but finally it does! Christina, Rochambeau, Natalie and Emily; thank you, thank you, thank you! Bel, I love the neckline too. Again it was something I was beginning to be unsure about but I've come back to loving it completely! Emily, the style is Daven, from the 2008 collection.Dubbs, I wish you had a dress you loved too, you really do deserve to. Thank you all!
Oh Cara! Beau-tiful!!!!! Soooo lovely. Better than the model even! The Boy is going to be overwhelmed.
Thank you Zoe! He's actually seen it (we're not traditional like that!) and he helped pick it. But I think he will be overwhelmed anyway, once it fits and there's the hair and make up and flowers!
It's beautiful! I love the lace. And the jacket is a really nice touch.
THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DRESS!! So Femanine and delicate..simply beautiful. I love it!
oh, so, so gorgeous!
first, The dress is beautiful! and you look lovely in it.Second, could I ask you a more technical question? How wide is the ribbon that you used and how long did you cut it to make the beautiful bow and to wrap it twice? (I'm ordering ribbon online and your picture is exactly what I'm thinking for my bridesmaids and I just wanted a guesstimate before I order it!)Thank You for your wonderful blog. I love reading it!
Thank you Sarah, I was worried that the jacket would be too much with it but it does go quite well doesn't it! Kim, thank you! I love it too, finally! Jangel205, thank you and welcome to P&P. As for the ribbon, it was 32mm wide and I bought 3 yards of it from www.silkribbon.com. I think my waist is about 25 inches so 50 inches of that was wrapped around my waist. So.... waist measurement x 2 + 58 inches = ribbon just like mine! I hope this helps!
Absolutely stunning my dear. The dress, shoes, jacket, earrings...it all works so perfectly well together. I can't wait to see more pictures!
