Here is a closer look at my Free People Dress I wore for my wedding last October! 

Believe it or not, I had never really thought about what wedding dress I had wanted ever. My wedding Pintrest board (admit it, you have one!) I had since before I even met Rich just had 2 pins on it of a couple of dresses but they were custom made or cosplay styled dresses which I wouldn't of had the time or budget to do on the short time I had to get things together before the wedding. I was torn between going for something glitzy and glam or something relaxed or wasn't sure if I actually wanted to wear traditional white. 

I also have never really felt wedding dresses were very me, having walked past bridal shops before nothing has ever made me stop and go WOW and if anything they just made the whole wedding prospect feel more daunting and less personal. 

I was really pleased to find though when I was shopping around that loads of online retailers have seen the gap and demand for less marshmallow dresses and have gone on to create their own ranges - at a fraction of the cost and not just in white - yes! :) 

I saw Free People had just launched their own Bridal range full of boho style dresses that inspired my theme, and picked out the Carolyn dream dress because it was pretty, with gorgeous detailing , unique and was something I felt I could be comfortable and most importantly feel like its something I would choose rather then what a bossy wedding dress sales assistant might strap me in to! 

The dress even included shorts underneath which made me feel less formal rather then having the pressure of being in a tight dress and glam make up worrying about how I look all the time instead of enjoying my day which is exactly what I wanted. Brides are under so much pressure to be perfect when really you just need to focus on finding a dress you feel comfortable in and it what you want, not what anyone else has talked you in to! Its up to you if you want to have Star Wars shoes and a multicoloured dress - its your day, make it yours and make it special to you!
