I have found, as our engagement goes on, that I seem to go in wedding planning spurts. We are so far ahead of the game and I have so many wonderful ideas spinning around in my head that it’s nice to have the luxury to step back for a few weeks if I want to. I have found that, in these early stages, I will go go go and get absolutely OVERLOADED with wedding inspiration, then break for a few weeks before diving back in again. Either way, here I am, ready to dive back in and show you a dress I found on the Internet that I have been OBSESSING OVER. (Dr. Groomy–this is your cue to exit…but feel free to tell your lovely co-workers to crowd on in! 😉 ).
Why? Because if you know me at all, you know I love this gal. Which means I equally loved her wedding dress:
Seriously?! So fab. In case you’re not obsessed and don’t own the movie and watch it five million times in a row, I can tell you that this dress is a Vivienne Westwood. Oh, Vivi…you’re a girl after my own heart. Interesting neckline, lush fabric, just a hint of something extra with that broach on the neckline…exactly all the things I want in my own wedding gown.
Enter the Sarah Danielle Bridalwear line.
UM. HELLO?! Same dress, practically! And instead of retailing for over $25,000 (as Carrie’s Vivienne Westwood gown does), this one retails for the quite comfortable price of $1,125. As I told my sister…I love the fact that this dress is–and I quote–“freakin’ fancy-pants-wow-your-ass-off!” This dress is a serious statement and I LOVE THAT. It’s chic and formal and a million other adjectives I can’t describe right now because I just want to keep looking at it! As you know, Dr. Groomy and I are pretty much having a black tie affair…and how fab would this dress be to set that tone! Gaaaaahhhhhhh I want it.
In other news…well, there isn’t really other news. Except I’m back! And itching to do more wedding things. And even though I can’t really start doing craft projects or the like for awhile yet, expect to see lots of inspiration posts in the coming weeks!
