Vintage or not to Vintage....that is the question....

So here I am...six weeks after getting engaged and I am already obbsessed....with wedding dresses!!

My biggest dilema however is not the length, style or even price but whether or not to go for a vintage dress over a new one.

See...the thing is that the boy is not a fan of vintage whereas I am addicted to the stuff. Normally I would wear whatever I wanted but this is the one time that I want the boy to look at me and think WOW and I am unsure a vintage dress would pull this reaction from him.

Then...if I do decided to go for a new dress do I still go for the vintage style as if I do this then I might as well get the real deal.

I have been looking around (as I am sure you can imagine) and I have to tell you one thing....vintage wedding dresses are BLOODY EXPENSIVE. I am talking £2,000 minimum for a good one. WOW!!

Don't get me wrong if I had the money I would do it but how many of us really have that much money to spend on a dress.....apart from the likes of Kate Moss whose dress I almost wept over!!

So that is my dilemma....if I go vintage the boy probably wont like it and if I don't then I feel that I am not being true to myself....can someone please help!!

Rant are my favourite dresses so far (vintage and not)....and I have looked at a lot!!

Swoon...Jenny Packham
