My wedding is fast approaching and for the first 6 months of searching for a dress, I was dead set on finding something vintage. It took me that long (and several purchases) to admit to myself that I’d have a better chance of encountering a unicorn than a vintage wedding dress even close to my size (and in my budget). So I went with a new dress that I love and makes my mom very happy.
Rewind back to vintage dress shopping, and I come across this beautiful lace wiggle dress that fits me perfectly (and I mean perfectly!). It’s clearly not my wedding dress, but I bought it anyway. It’s about twice as much as I would ever spend on a dress without a specific place to wear it, so, I’m thinking rehearsal dinner. The thing is, it is in the cream color family. I would say more of a beige-ish with gold accents. I know your rule about wearing anything close to white on the night before the wedding, but it’s sooo pretty. And perfect for my evening, cocktail-style rehearsal dinner (not my afternoon picnic wedding).
Should I go against your highly regarded advice, or find something else to wear?
