My Wedding Dress

So, recently I got married. Yes, despite Covid, despite lock down, despite the restrictions of ceremonies to 30 people and weddings being banned for more than three months. We were booked in to get married in March. But lock down in Britain was suddenly announced 5 days before the big day and we were forced to pick a new day at random. We chose August and hoped that weddings would be allowed by then. Luckily weddings started again in July with heavy restrictions. Only 30 people and no reception afterwards. But we were just keen to be married.

My dress is called Elodie and is from the Modeca 2019 La Papillon Collection. It is a tulle ballgown with and externally boned sweetheart bodice and illusion neckline with cap sleeves. The bodice has layers of ruched tulle and lace and embroidery over a blush lining.

The skirt has 7 layers, from the inner lining of white satin, through several layers of poofy tulle, topped with a last layer of tulle with embroidered appliqué of flowers and butterflies on white, blush and gold thread. There is a long train and the edges of they layers are gently gathered to form a gentle poofy cloud that almost floats along the floor.
