My 1920-something wedding fashion show

I decided to post some pictures of my beautiful wedding dress, as well as a 1920s flapper gown I intend to wear on my honeymoon. These dresses are thanks to a wonderful woman named Sasha, who owns La Belle Vintage, a really fabulous vintage clothing boutique. If you like this kind of stuff, I seriously suggest you visit her eBay store!

First of all, here is the wedding gown. Although it's 1920s-short in the front, the skirt is very full, with a slight "train" in the back that will just barely skim the ground when I'm wearing heels.







Although the flapper gown lacks many of the beads and tassles that was characteristic of the style, I rather like it better - it's simpler and more elegant, more my style. Plus, the embroidery is absolutely beautiful.





I haven't yet decided on my veil or the shoes I'll be wearing with these two dresses, but I hope these pictures can at least give you an idea of the theme of the wedding!

I love your dress, but I especially love your headpiece. The beaded cap and the wax flowers are exquisite!
