Wow! I've found my dream wedding dress

After searching high and low, far and wide I finally found my dress. This dress oh my! it was love at first sight  for me. The palpitations I had in my heart made me feel like I was about to have a heart attack, the heightened sound of my heartbeat throbbed in my ears, a swarm of butterflies were fighting a Somalian war in my stomach. I was drawn to this dress. I wanna have it, I gotta have it

Wedding Dress by Ersa Atelier
(made by hand, couture)

I could feel like a princess in this dress. I could pass it on to my great grandchild. We could make it our family's something borrowed. Every girl child in the lineage would get married in this dress- it could be worn over and over and even in 100 years will not go out of fashion. Oh! I have found THE dress.

But to have this dress I would have to sell off some of my stuff- it costs a whopping $9500. Yikes!

I'm undeterred... gotta have my dress. Watch this space.

Go to Ersa Atelier to see more of their dresses. They design the most beautiful dresses

Mismatched Bridesmaid dresses

Alice asked: My bridesmaids all have different styles which I absolutely love in all their beautiful diversity. I will actually hate to prep them up in my own idea of what a bridesmaids dress should look like. I love all their styles and will like for their style to still shine through at my wedding while still looking colour co-ordinated and a beautiful part of the wedding.

Answer: Mismatched bridesmaids dresses

There are several ways to do this-

same colour, different shades

Khloe's bridesmaids in different shades of purple

two colours, two lengths
Totally j'adore this gray and floral co-ordination, and different lengths

same dress, different colours

different colours, different accessories

The key is to keep accessories as minimal as possible so your wedding doesn't begin to look like a carnival. The perk? if they get to choose their style there will be no cry about cost.

Definitely say Yay! to this trend
