I am getting married abroad this summer, and want a very unusual dress. I am currently a size 14 but hope to trim down a but!

I love this dress www.pinterest.com/pin/452611831272479247/
Hopefully that link will work! I can't find out where to get the dress from.. any ideas? Or any similar dresses for inspiration?

I think it looks amazing but not sure about the dramatic colour.

You could get something similar made for you. That is a very straightforward dress to make (it's basically a corset with a two layer skirt, one of which is ruched up). Any good dressmaker/independent designer could either draft their own pattern or could adapt a commercial version.

It is by Cherlone. They sell on eBay here

I love that colour green smile

Wow what a bargain! I'll be looking at them when I get married.

I like the idea of bronze, the ones with limited sizes would be good but they don't have my size.. It needs a strap, not a court shoe, love love love the unusual ones but don't have my size in bronze.

I think that green is amazing, but would it be better for a winter wedding? Will it be very sunny, I'd say much would depend on how it looks in the light of the destination. Lovely style!

i got married in green.

it was inspired by this one www.pinterest.com/pin/269723465152818027/

What a fabulous dress! You will look stunning. I would have loved that as a dress when I got married but unfortunately 1972 was not a good year for sexy green wedding dresses...sigh.

I'm having second thoughts.. about the dress not the wedding! Do you think it might be a bit cheap looking in real life? It's going to be very hot so maybe not the best idea.

How about this one? Love the blue with red shoes.. where is it from? How do you tell where things from pintrest are from?

yes...simple and flowing if v v hot, not lacy corsets, possibly

will it be in a church? hotel? on sand?

It's in a town hall in Tuscany, I think the light blue dress would work better.

i prefer the blue dress. it's lovely.

sunshinemmum Tue 25-Feb-14 13:08:54

Light blue sounds lovely, what a fab location too smile

ChaffinchOfDoom Tue 25-Feb-14 13:09:39

Do you know it's meant to be bad luck to get married in green?

I absolutely love the dress. If you love the green, do it up!

Some nice dresses here.

bad luck or not, we're still married.

in fact because we had a humanist ceremony we ditched all superstitious stuff/symbolism from our wedding entirely. we didn't even do wedding rings.

DangerousMouse Tue 25-Feb-14 13:24:18

I think the green one might be a bit dark, the blue one on pintrest would work well with my figure, I like the cut and should hold my belly in. How do you find out where things are from on pintrest?

you can click on the picture, it eventually takes you to the source of the photograph.
