My Dress Inspiration

This isn't my lace but this is the feel of what we will be using.
So this is what I was going for with my dress when I first started designing it. My plan has kind of evolved as I have kept planning. I was able to go down to Santa Fe with my mom and meet with Anne Lawrence of the Anne Lawrence Collection. She had the most amazing selection of Vintage Lace. We looked through things with here and had the hardest time finding something that would work with the layering I was wanting to do on my dress. Then Anne pulled out these 2 bed spreads from the 1920's. They were perfect! They were going to give us the length of trim we needed and they were gorgeous. So this week I took them into Penny the woman who is making my dress and we played with the lace over the base of my dress. I can't even express how excited I got. It's won't look like my original design plan but I love it!! The lace is more ornate than the lace we had thought we would use but it looks beautiful. I'm so excited for it to be done and get to try it on!!
