Alice by Jenny Packham


I’ve received a few emails about “the” wedding dress that I finally chose. Today, Ekaterina kindly commented asking for a glimpse – so here it is. The dress is Alice by Jenny Packham. It wasn’t necessarily the type of dress I thought would appeal to me; I expected more lace but it did have the classic line and fit I was looking for and hopefully a vintage feel. Now I’m faced with a dilemma – keep the dress, wrapped in tissue, to try on while hoovering or eating tea and biscuits on a rainy Sunday OR sell it, so that someone else may have some joy from the dress, other than the moths? The selfish side of me realllllly wants to keep it, perhaps as a weight gauge while middle-aged spread kicks in. The more giving side remembers how thrilled I was to find this dress in a sample sale at Wedlock, as the £1,400 original price-tag seemed too indulgent (bearing in mind our low-key nuptials.) The jury’s still out on whether to sell or keep, I’ll let you know.

    I still have it and think I will keep it. I still feel far too sentimental about the dress and the whole day. It sounds SOOOO cliché…but I loved the way the dress made me feel on my wedding day (or maybe it was the overwhelmingness of the whole occasion!) R x

    Hi there,
    If there is any way you’ve decided you may be willing to part with it, let me know! I am in love with this dress, but it is just to expensive everywhere I have found it. My fiance and I are paying for our wedding ourselves and on a really tight budget. I thought I would just “settle” for something simple and easy, off the rack, but wow did I fall in love with this dress! Sigh…

    I hope you are well :)

    You’ve clearly opened a can of worms with this post, or rather, a can of desperate brides! I’m also hoping to buy this dress used, let me know if you change your mind.

    If…and that’s a BIG if! (I would HATE to get anyone’s hopes up) I do decide to sell the dress, I will email all those of you on here that have asked first x
