My Bridesmaid Dresses

We're so close to my sisters wedding now and all the prep is being finalised.  I thought I would show you my bridesmaid dress for the March wedding.  In the next week or two I will be popping along to the seamstress to have it taken in and up and am really excited to see it looking as it should on me.

My gorgeous dress is from the designer Ghost and it is a 1930's inspired full length evening dress in forest green.  Every inch the elegance we wanted!  I shall be making my own little headdress to compliment my dress and the shoes are almost decided.  Although I will have to think quick as I will need them to take with me to the seamstress to make sure the length is correct.

 It's all in the details...

For their Chinese Ceremony this month I am yet to find my outfit.  All of the family will be attired in traditional clothing and although I already have a few cheongsam dresses; vintage and new, I have been looking into a bespoke piece.  Fingers X it is not too late to have one made and shipped to me in time!  As I already had my eyes on purchasing more of these dresses they will definitely not go to waste if delivered too late.

I have two fabric designs which have been discussed with the dress makers which will make the cheongsams very 'Alison'.  It would be amazing to have these on time.  I will keep you posted on the outcome and if the quality is of a high standard I will let you all know where I had them made :)

Oh the excitement to come! xxx

I am so jealous.

BOTH times I was a bridesmaid I wore inspid pale, pale pink dresses of equally hideous nature. I swore NEVER AGAIN. But you know, if you were to ask me... ;)
