"A wedding gown with no lace, beading or embroidery, please". Blank look from stuffy salesmadam. "We don’t have those. You want a plain dress?"
Nooooooooooooooo... I want a modern dress. An enormous taffeta bow, dramatic ruffles, one-shouldered fabulousness. Something very Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang on a Big W budget. Too much to ask?
Apparently. Shunning traditional trimmings, I’d been lumped with the Goths and medieval types. A plain bride or a freak.
So if embroidery, garters and witchy-poo pointy bridal booties offend your fashionista sensibilities, how do you find a modern wedding dress?
