Seriously, Rob, don’t look here. This is a surprise for you, remember?
Dopers, I owe my romance and impending marriage to the boards and now I’d like your help finding a wedding dress. Yes, really! I value your input and think it’ll be fun. It’ll be like when all the ladies get together to go shopping…
Details- We’re getting married this August in downtown Charleston, SC in a courtyard at the John Rutledge House Inn, built in the late 1700’s. John Rutledge was a signer of the U.S. Constitution and it’s a big beautiful old house. It’s an outdoor wedding around 1 or 2 when it should be between 75 and 90 degrees on the Peninsula. Reception is in the same place. Groom’s wearing his USAF uniform and I’m looking for a dress to do double duty as not only wedding but dressy for other occassions. I’m a size 9-ish, 34B; I’ll have the dress made from pattern by a seamstress. Doesn’t have to be white either.
Difficulties - v-necks only show off my sternum. I like my sternum, but it’s not where I want eyes to go. I don’t think I’d want to show off cleavage that day anyway. My shoulders are a nice feature of mine but I’d rather not show off my back due to scoliosis. Fitted is great, down to the waistline. Floor length is my goal.
Here are some I like already -
I’d love to know your thoughts!
Thanks, Nawth Chucka
