How I wanted that dress, but I put it out of my mind. A dress like that was probably too expensive plus it didn't really fit in with the style of the wedding. Then I found this wedding profile on OBB. The bride had a short tulle skirt! I decided then that I really did want a tulle skirt.
When I pitched the idea to Lawrence, I mistakenly used the word tutu. This brought on comments about how I might be perceived as silly and not taking the wedding seriously. I explained to him that what I wear does not dictate how serious I am about our marriage. In the end, he said he'd marry me if I was wearing a paper bag, so if I wanted to do it wearing a tutu, it would be ok.
With that settled, I moved on to how exactly to put together my vision. I figured I could make the skirt easily but was stuck on what to wear on top. After a search though sewing patterns, I picked out five tops I thought would look good. Truth be told, though, I didn't really swoon over any of the tops. Then I remembered that often in the special occasion/evening wear section of pattern catalogs there'll be mix and match patterns, where you have one skirt and several different styles of tops in one pattern. I found two that I really like.
I also found an alternative to making my own tulle skirt.Sisters of the Moon Designs on Etsy makes really cool tutus for reasonable prices. I'll probably get this one.
Now, dear readers, help me decide which top I should wear to my wedding.
