First Comes Love, then Comes Marriage.

15 Nov

One of my good friends is getting married next year and she is just starting her dress search. They are not sure if they are going to make it a destination wedding or have it in California but either way she wants something non-traditional and unique.

It has been a while since I have done an INSPIRE TO FIND and I was really excited for this one.

For new readers, INSPIRE TO FIND is when someone sees something they absolutely love but either can’t find it at retail or want a more affordable alternative so they send it to me and I do the searching for them. This can be Anything: travel itineraries, clothes, food and wine, accessories, home decor etc.

Luella says…I challenge you to challenge me.

Ok back to the dresses. My friend gave me two totally opposite choices to search for. One floor length, one mini. I loved both.

Did someone say long for the ceremony, short for the party?

Choice #1 Valentino

As worn by Keira Knightley at the 2006 Golden Globes

My alternative choices  to this dress are all by the British designer Jenny Packham.

My friend’s style is very Boho Chic and I think Jenny Packham encapsulates that perfectly.

Choice #2 Marchesa

Mini Wedding Dress as worn by Tori Spelling to renew her wedding vows in 2010

For this one, I chose to feature similar dresses by Oregon based designer Sarah Seven. She is amazing and I will be doing a future post just on her collections very soon. She does everything made-to-order and so it makes your wedding dress truly one of a kind.

    Congrats on your friend getting married!!! I love weddings!!!
    As I am not a big fan of minis as a wedding dress, I Love the first one by Jenny Packham!!! I think it keeps the traditional looks of a wedding dress without being old fashion!!!
    Nice post, as always since I am following you you are making me dream!!!!
