but getting back on topic today I am bringing a little inspiration from Colonial Australia (ok so sue me it's not totally historically accurate, but I tried) at request of my mother who has a friend who spoke about a wedding of this style (oh yeah my Mum talks to EVERYONE).
At first I found it a tad difficult finding dresses that gave off that kind of vibe but thanks to a little show called Downton Abbey Edwardian fashions and all things modest are making a big comeback.
The other great thing about these dresses is that a lot of them are readily available to buy (just follow the links) or a quick search of Etsy or even Ebay could turn up your perfect gown and chances are it will be cheaper than even a standard dress in a boutique.
