The Wedding Fair

The guy who leases my old apartment hooked me up with a friend of his, who was in need of a model for a local wedding fair. I love wearing pretty dresses, so I promised to help her out. It was super cold on the day of the fair, my taxi driver got lost (on a ten minute trip!) and the lady at the ticket booth didn't have up to date name lists and wouldn't let me in. Well, despite all the problems, the fair went well, I had a quick twirl at the stage on both Saturday and Sunday and we took pictures of the dress.

The dress is by Revelations. They specialize in corsets and unique made-to-measure dresses, but also have really pretty designs of their own! Both the seamstresses were really nice persons and if I'm ever in need of a fancy gown, I know where to go :) Their made-to-measure corsets were also really drool-worthy, such pretty fabrics and nice designs!


We were really lucky that the dress fit me perfectly, since we didn't have time to try it before the fair.



My bun was much nicer looking on Saturday when I forced my other half to do it, he did a great job! These pics are from Sunday and feature my own five-minute-bun I whipped up in a hurry ;) Hair and makeup is by me, I'll do a post on the look later on if any of my face shots came out nice.

Here's one to show the lovely draping on the top!

  1. The dress is simple (i mean not all the frills many wedding dress have) but it's really pretty with the laces in the back and pinkish colour :)

  2. You look absolutely stunning! And I love that the corset is that soft blush pink and not ivory/white and stark.
    Anything with corsets, and I'm there... I'm gonna have to check out their dresses because I still haven't found anything I'm totally in love with... A few here and there, but I can't believe the prices :|

    1. The pictures came out really nice in the end! The originals are a bit dark with the light coming from the window behind me, but the resolution was good so they held up well when I lightened them up a bit.
