I want to share something really important with you, my lovely modern vintage love readers.
Until now, I haven’t displayed much of my dress on any social media. I guess I was still keeping it under lock and key like it was something special only for me, but that makes no sense at all anymore, right? I mean, the groom has seen it now, so here goes!
The story of my dress starts a little something like this: girl doesn’t see any bridal dresses she likes. Girl sees Sarah Seven dresses. Girl MUST HAVE a Sarah Seven dress. Sound familiar to anyone who’s been to a school dance, formal, or been married before? Insert your designer of choice above, please.
So that’s exactly what happened, and I traveled back and forth to San Francisco a few times for fittings with Sarah herself (who’s a lovely lady, by the way!) I ended up buying two dresses – my wedding dress (with a little rhinestone bow belt), my rehearsal dinner dress, and the most lovely peter pan collar all by Sarah Seven.
The design of the dress was perfect for me, a modern throwback to the early 60s. The illusion neckline was something I had definitely thought about before even seeing her dresses, and it’s like she read my mind with this dress. And the name of the dress is “fields of flowers,” how could I not fall in love with it? The skirt of it was a few layers of tulle, and it was extremely comfortable and lightweight.
Here’s a better view of the collar, something I’ll wear for a very, very long time!
So I didn’t wear the collar for the ceremony, only the reception. Here’s a shot of my bow belt though. Excuse my funny face!
And finally, a full length shot. Too bad you can’t see my purple suede Ferragamo heels. I’ll save those for another post!
Thank you for reading about my favorite dress!
