After helping ourselves to some yummy food we sat down to discuss budget and what would look best on my body we came to the decision that the dress would be have a cap sleeve Illusion top sweet heart bodice with an A-line skirt with a high low heam line. Need a visual? Yea me too!
The skirt of the dress will be an A-line with my beloved high low hemline. I was a little worried that I would get some resistance when I shared my inspiration for the skirt but everyone including my mom were excited when I showed them the pic.
Next step will be to start sourcing fabric, I’m 90% sure well be going with a Silk Dupioni for the skirt but as of today I’m undecided on the type of lace for the bodice. I’m leaning towards an Alencon lace but budget will determine our final decision.
Construction on the dress won’t begin until about the 1st week in April which sounded kind of late for me but she reassured me that the construction and fittings shouldn’t take more than a month so all should be good to go for our June wedding date.
So what do you think? Am I crazy to wait until 2 months out from our date to begin construction on my dress?
