You say that like it's a bad thing...
I made these a while back. I wanted to like them SO, SO MUCH! I just couldn't though. *sigh*
Woah to that dress! Mine was a lovely vintage find that cost about $80.00 WITH alterations. I still get compliments from people years later.
The truth? NO ONE will remember what your dress looked like 6 months after your wedding except you and possibly your mother. I hate to sound terrible here, but most people will remember very little about your wedding at all no matter how "memorable" you try to make it. People only remember if the food was bad or the wedding was long and sometimes they recall that you looked nice. The most memorable things will have nothing to do with what you are wearing. Memories will come from all the fun (or maybe not so fun) unexpected things you never saw coming. They will come from hanging out with your girls the night before and getting ready in the bridal room in the morning. They will come when someone unexpected cries because they are so happy for you, or when someone gives a hilarious wedding toast. So lay off the dress, spend your money on good food instead.
