Wedding Dresses

Did you know I have been planning my wedding since I got engaged way back in 2007?

Yes you did read that right, we did have a date booked, our deposit on a venue and everything – I even have our stationary still in a box in the loft. But then our first son made an appearance and we cancelled everything deciding to wait a wee while, but then life got in the way and we are still waiting to set the date again.

I did have a dress all sorted with what I wanted and colours etc, but since that time my tastes have changed so I am kind of glad that I don’t have that dress in mind any more.

I really don’t want the whole white wedding dress, that just isn’t for me, unless it is something like this one:

but after two (soon to be three) kids I don’t think my body is any shape for this kind of style, unless I make a start on the insanity fitness program lol

So white isn’t for me, I want to do something different, that deviates from the the traditional but not to wacky for most people to accept. I have been trying to look for the perfect burgundy dress.

Yes Burgundy!

This is sort of the style that I am looking for, whilst it may not be to every ones taste at the end of the day it is going to be my wedding and I want something that I am comfortable wearing, and basically a dress that I want, I am paying for it myself after all 😉

It is amazing how hard it is to get a dress like this in the UK, it appears we are still stuck in the boring mind frame of a wedding dress must be white so I am glad that I have discovered DressFirst and bonus they ship to the UK!

I may just have found my perfect wedding dress after all!

The DressFirst website is so easy to use that I found my burgundy ball gown in seconds using the narrow search function. As soon as I saw the colour options I knew this site was a winner with me 🙂 Not only that you but you can change your currency as well so I am able to see what dresses are in my budget and GBP.

DressFirst has so many wonderful dress for every occasion, and in all honesty there are a lots that I would love to buy! 🙂

  1. I’ve found it weird that there aren’t that many wedding dresses in other colors besides white. It makes it tedious and if you want something different you would have to have it custom made. I do like the burgundy dress you posted, it’s really pretty!

  2. Wow! That burgundy dress is really beautiful! I think it takes nerve to wear a color outside of white. I couldn’t be more brave than light pink. My sister was married in Vegas, not at all formally & wore a black dress with red shoes & veil. You go!!
