This Modern Love

vintage-001minimal lace

It’s safe for me to say that since last saturday all I can think about is venues, lights, decorations and oh yeah wedding dresses. I always had one eye on wedding dresses, just to get an idea of what I want and what kind of dress to get when the time comes. Turns out, sometimes, that “time” comes at the most unexpected moment and forces you to do a surprise wedding – and that includes the dress too. Especially if you hate the classic strapless ball gown like me, chances are you won’t be able to find your dream wedding dress among those sample dresses.

I am, of course, checking the web too – I don’t want to take the risk of ordering something online when I only have 2 months (OH MY GOD! I scream everytime I realize how many days have left) but since I’ve spent waaaaaaay too much time searching for everything wedding related – I wanted to create a wedding gown shopping guide post. Not just to justify my waste of time, no, but if I can guide some other lucky ladies into finding their dress (maybe a new shop, a new design.. etc) I would be a more happy person, for sure.

There are more than 100 gowns listed here; from vintage to minimal, lace to silk, long & short, glam to bohemian, strapless (yeah I’ve broken my oath and picked some beautiful strapless gowns!), halter-neck, grecian style etc. , take a peak and spread the word!

I kindly ask for all bride-to-bes, newly weds, fashion freaks (everybody in general) to let me know (by leaving a comment) if there is any other online shop you know (that don’t do custom designs but sell ready to wear, sized gowns), I would be grateful to you all my life.

Now that I’ve done enough begging and shared my misery, I can continue with the ever so big wedding dress shopping guide! (Sorry for the repetitive images, it’s just to make it easier for you!)

  1. Serenity says

    I didn’t realize that you too are engaged. Congrats! We are planning ours for August 2015. I love all these gowns. I really want to get this one: I don’t want to spend anymore money then $300 on a dress. We don’t plan to spend more than $3000 on our wedding. I have a whole board on Pinterest of frugal/DIY ideas that I wish to implement for our wedding. It is at if you care to take a look. I would go more into detail, but it is quite the late hour here and I was suppose to turn my manuscript in hours ago and I have to hurry before I pass out and that is going to happen in a few minutes I am sure. Enjoy your day, dear and hope all is well! xo

  2. I leave a couple of websites you might like, although I guess you are far away from Barcelona. I am getting married in two months and I promise choosing a wedding dress for a morning wedding in a small village by the sea and my 22 year old daughter being the maid, has been a hard task. Much harder than the first time I said “I do” in the 20th century. In the end I have chosen something in the stlye of number 5 in alternative dresses.
    Congratulations on the wedding and the blog,


  3. Great compilation, definitely a one stop shop so thanks for gathering! I’m actually in the midst of planning my wedding and up next on the to-do list is the dress! I thought that my extreme love of fashion was going to help me in this department, but I’ve actually found that it’s my achilles heel! I love everything! lol Currently crushing on Elie Saab for my bridesmaids but I’m loving #5 under Glamourama for me! Great post! 🙂

  4. Gorgeous! The ones I love are usually the most pricy ones in the category. I am happy I did not see the post before I got married 😉 Otherwise, I had to raise the budget a lot.
