{Wedding Dress Inspiration: Dolly Couture-Retro Inspired Wedding Dresses}

I am pretty sure that you already know of my love of all things vintage and glamorous.  And if you didn't know, now you do. I am obsessed with clothing from the 1920's-1950's, the renaissance, and Victorian time periods.  Since my other love is sewing, I do a lot of costuming research and spend hours drooling over vintage wedding dresses.  And since I am a lover of all things wedding related, and a wedding photographer (obviously), I definitely have to share with you one of my favorite wedding dress designers.

Her name is Dolly Thicke, and she is the owner and designer of Dolly Couture.  I first saw her dresses on the show, Whose Wedding is it Anyway?.  Where a bride was having a 1950's Las Vegas themed wedding.  When I saw the dress, I was amazed, and spend the next 2 days doing a search to find out the designer.  I have lusted after her dresses for about a year now. Although I am already married, if I ever were to have another wedding/vow renewal,  a Dolly Couture dress is what I am going to be wearing.

So, I am going to stop boring you, and show you just how amazing her dresses are. First up is the Beverlywood dress. My absolute favorite, and the one that I would wear to my vow renewal, or even just buy it to have it because it is that amazing!

Next, we have the Moon River, which is inspired by Audrey Hepburn. Who doesn't love her?

Another favorite of mine, is the San Marino

There are more dresses on her website that you just have to check out. Like I said, I would probably buy one just to have it, and feel amazing whenever I put it on.  Hmm...maybe this will be a Christmas gift for myself.  And what perfect vintage dress is complete without a big, fluffy, petticoat to wear underneath it.  Dolly Couture offers petticoats also!

Now, talking about petticoats, I also found this amazing store on Etsy, that sells custom size, length,and colored petticoats.  The store is DreamSpun Kids on Etsy, and their adult petticoats are to die for!

Have fun shopping!
