Hi Fashion Mavens,

 

I'm nearing 57, about 120, a petite size, short brown hair, and getting married in July.  Our wedding and reception are at noon.  I know I don't want a traditional white or ivory wedding dress although I'm attracted to the sheath silhouette.  Looking in department stores, my favorite choices now are Carmen Marc Valvo infusion gowns with the applique flowers.  Help me broaden my horizons.  I definitely want a gown and don't mind showing shape as opposed to a lot of skin.  Thanks!

First of all congratulations!   The Carmen Marc Valvo infusion gowns are stunning and would be beautiful for a wedding.   Have you been to Neiman Marcus to try any on yet?

Congratulations!  Check out a website called Needle and Thread.  I found them after seeing Princess Kate in a dress designed by this company recently.  They have a US website as well.  I think the dresses are absolutely gorgeous!  I also feel that they aren't too overpriced especially considering the amount of detail.
