The typical Indian wedding is one big loud, noisy, bustling affair. We’re treated to a riot of colours, a horde of talkative relatives, a buffet of delicious dishes and lots of gossip and glittering jewellery. In the midst of all this craziness, it’s amazing how every guest finds the time and attention to marvel at the bride’s dress and discuss it in detail. It’s isn’t surprising then that to-be Indian brides go into a frenzy planning their wedding dress. They need that perfect dress, one that is grand enough to evoke a bridal aura, expressive enough to communicate their personality and taste and unique enough to be the centre of attention. The main consideration for a bride-to-be is what is appropriate for her to wear. Style should match her figure and her financial means, as well as the setting for the ceremony. For example, a larger framed woman should try on the dresses she likes, and then choose one that flatters her. Every bride wants to look lovelier on that special day. If she has $500 to spend on a dress, then she shouldn’t be looking at $5,000 dresses. If the wedding is to be held in a garden, a heavily beaded dress maybe should be avoided. The first one is definitely the strangest. A cross between tea cozy and condom is a fantastically accurate description. Lol! Violet: Yes, your poor Mom must have been beside herself with worry. Her little girl walking around half naked. I remember hot pants too. It was a great time for teenage boys! Celes wears this opera costume when she is performing in an opera. It’s cream with gold embroidery. It’s in the style of gowns from the 18th century. The sarees are beautiful – we westerners are attracted to the gorgeous silks, the gold threads, the graceful drape of the cloth over the shoulder. It’s interesting to see how traditions and customs are adapted in other cultures, and South India is no exception in blending Christian liturgy with local color. Beautiful hub, Laila. Other things to look for in a vintage gown, whether it is a family dress or one that you intend to purchase, include the type and condition of the main fabric, the embellishments, and the length of the train. A very long train can be a huge bonus, because if the gown is too small, fabric can be stolen from the length of the train to cut new side or back panels for the bodice in the original fabric (you would never be able to match a new piece of material to a vintage gown).

SO gorgeous. I’d love to do a vintage fur-lined gown. However, I don’t think I’d like a blue gown or a short gown – you’d look more like a Victorian maid than a bride! Definitely visited a lot of sites, including – but yours is great! I think that I need to find a dress for my wife. She has been dying for some new dresses. Thanks for the ideas. The dress that Princess Leia, played by Carrie Fisher, wears in the beginning of the a New Hope is an icon.

Paper Moon: I know! Pissed me off too. I didn’t have a choice, as these pictures are one of a kind. GRrrrrrrrrr! The bodice should be chosen according to the size of your bust. Choose a V-neck or sweetheart bodice for a larger bust. Either a sweetheart or straight bodice will flatter smaller breasts. Lace and chiffon wedding dress was made into a patchwork quilt, with designs, names, date and place of marriage sewn on the quilt. The pillow was made from the bodice of the dress, The bodice and cuffs on the front, and the buttons on the back. Pole tent from the outside, with a subfloor. They’ve got pole drapes, which I like because they’re decorative but not fussy, and cost-effective. The wedding dress that you will proudly wear though, should fit the personality you uphold.

B. An up-do hairdo, and the diamond solitaire engagement ring, in the Tiffany setting. I have always loved those dresses! I just didn’t like that particular era because of the lack of women’s rights, but the styles were really awesome!

The PICCALINA lace kimono in tulle and Chantilly lace is something I’ve been wanting to design and create for quite awhile. I was inspired by old movies of women in delicate robes and/or dressing gowns, who of course sported long trains. While this started out in the style of a dressing gown the addition of the dramatic, flowing sleeves falling into points gives it that kimono quality. The under dress is a crepe sheath but a slip dress under this gemmie would work beautifully as well.

When you see all these things your dress can do, it seems like it is really underperforming in your closet, right? I know I struggle with the idea of parting with my dress, and I don’t know if I will muster the courage or not, but the more dresses get multiple uses (and do all these wonderful things for people who need them) the better for everyone. Here are some specific styles to consider when shopping for your plus size dress. These styles are great for many plus sized women, but be sure to try different styles on, to see how they work on your particular body.

Superb Lens, I love it! very nice presentation of wedding you couple are too good made for each other congress both of you for your future.happy life journey. best of luck. Another very common type of stain on wedding gowns is perspiration. It is not just the underarm portion of gowns which are vulnerable, either. If you spent every minute of your reception enjoying yourself on the dance floor (and if you did, good for you!), your gown will surely have absorbed perspiration all through the bodice, as well as on any straps your dress may have. Sometimes the dress will look fine initially, but over time, the salts will oxidize creating dreadful yellow marks in all the telltale places. You know how hard it is to get yellow stains out of the underarms of your favorite white cotton t-shirts? It is far worse for fine materials like silk which can’t be thrown in the washing machine with bleach or oxygen-based stain lifters (they will actually devour the silk fibers). Prevent yellow stains by having your seamstress add thin dress shields into the underarms of your wedding gown if it has sleeves, and ensure that any perspiration present is cleaned off before it has the chance to do lasting harm to your precious wedding dresses
