This week past I didn’t do much thinking about wedding stuff – I’ve just been too busy with work, with diy and with life in general stuff. Then when we were down in London I spotted a shop called Fur Coat No Knickers, which had a great vintage dress in the window, and as I am on the hunt for a dress to wear to my industry awards do in a few weeks, we decided to go in…
Two seconds in there and we realised this shop really specialises in vintage wedding dresses. Which were all beautiful and gorgeous… which was exactly the opposite of how I was feeling on Sunday morning. In fact, I just felt a bit overwhelmed by it all so my little sis stepped in to take some pics for me.
Here were our favourite dresses…
I kept looking at the yellow one on the left here and my sis was looking at the white one with blue flowers… at this point it was striking me that other than thinking I wanted a short wedding dress I haven’t thought very much about what I would like…
My little sis is in love with the dress on the right… it wouldn’t suit me but it could maybe be a future bridesmaid’s dress perhaps?
We thought this was a bit too West Side Story for me… I’m not really a Maria kind of girl!
We both thought this dress hanging up here was so lovely… but it was intimidating me with its loveliness! Did anyone else feel like that when they first went wedding dress shopping?!
Since getting home, I’ve discovered that Fur Coat No Knickers have a blog where they show some of the lovely ladies who have worn their dresses. These are my favs – I love how different they all look:
Happy Weddingnesday everyone xx
