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.
The 1950s took bridal fashions in a totally different direction. Glamor and femininity were the style of the day, and ladylike gowns with big bouffant skirts and yards of lace were all the rage. The streamlined silhouettes of the Depression and war years vanished. One of the most famous brides of the 1950s was the charming Miss Jacqueline Bouvier when she wed Senator John F. Kennedy in 1953. Her gown was fairly typical of the era (though not at all representative of her own personal aesthetics): a portrait neckline with cap sleeves, a very fitted bodice, and a full petticoated skirt. The portrait neckline is almost like an off-the-shoulder silhouette, but the shoulders remain covered in the interest of modesty (there was a time when a lady would not enter a house of worship with a bare head, let alone bare shoulders). The fullness of Miss Bouvier’s gown was created by a box pleated skirt, which was a very popular way to drape the skirt on a bridal gown of that era. Kelly and Natalie got engaged last October and agreed a dress budget of £500 each. Popular materials used to sew these gowns include tulle, silk, organdy, linen, lace, and gauze-like fabrics. The more elaborate gowns were made from lace. Use a sudsy spray solution. Many experts suggest brushing the solution onto the affected area and gently brushing it with a toothbrush. Others have had success with using OxyClean on the difficult stain. The Royal Wedding of Charles and Diana took place at St. Paul’s Cathedral on 29 July 1981.

While I was taking bellydance lessons one of my fellow student performers became engaged and decided to involve our whole class in her wedding- as dancers!

Be Open-Minded & Practical: It’s equally as important to be open to different ideas about wedding dresses as it is to have your own. Bottom line – it’s YOUR wedding, and you should choose the dress that YOU want; but it does not hurt to leave a little wiggle room and try things that you may not have originally envisioned. I thought I knew exactly what I wanted…..until I got there…..and tried it on. Turns out I had a few things right, but by allowing suggestions from others, I was able to settle on a much more flattering and fabulous dress. Practicality plays a big role when it comes to your dress, as well. For instance, I’m getting married on the beach in June; therefore it made sense to have thinner and lighter fabric with a shorter train. It’s these little details that count! No sleeves for you! Or at least choose a dress that shows your arms and has a lower dropped neckline. A sweetheart, V-neck, halter, off-the-shoulder, or even asymmetric top will really lengthen out your body. Avoid detail and decorations on the top part of your dress, but feel free to go crazy with lace, silk and organza on the skirt. Anything that flows and keeps the like of your dress going vertical will really be flattering on you! Many young brides are drawn to at least some sort of train for their wedding dresses – they bring a sense of history, regality, and romance to the ensemble and allow the wearer to flaunt sumptuous fabrics, lace, and beadwork. Great lens. I really hate seeing women over 50 dresses sloppy and baggy. I’m only in my early 40s but this lens captures precisely how I want to look and dress in my 50s.
I’m almost 51, have great skin thanks to genetics, have been active all my life, have long dark hair (in great condition with minimal greys)…most people think I’m in my mid 30s. I still wear bikinis and short skirts and get compliments from both genders. I do think 50 and over should avoid florals, too much lace, and hair accessories with the exception of a barrette or hair band for a low ponytail. Details on your wedding dress also depend on the wedding venue. A ballroom wedding goes perfectly with a dramatic-floor length gown with a long train while a knee-length gown with flowing ruffle detailing is better for an outdoor, beach wedding. Garden weddings are perfect for bridal gowns with whimsical details like tulle overlay. When selecting a wedding dress rental shop, ask about alterations. Some shops allow you to alter the dress before the wedding, but others require that you wear the dress as is. Ask how many days you can pick the dress up before the wedding and when you must have it returned by. Verify any deposits required or damage fees before signing a rental contract. If you are leaving from the reception to your honeymoon, make arrangements for a friend or family member to return the dress. You may not be aware of this, but you can have your vintage wedding gowns tailored to your own design or chosen sewing pattern customised for you from scratch. After weeks of searching for a dress that would feel like it suited my body, style and vision of my wedding…you came to the rescue! You truly have a gift! I enjoyed all of the accessories we selected together – veil, purse, earrings, and shoes. Thank you for everything.!
