Lolita Wedding Dress & more

Hello!

I've seen other posts where people inquired about "lolita wedding dresses" so I would like to share mine with you, as well as some other cute details.

My favorite dress is the original BtSSB Pockets Embroidery JSK in cream. I always feel great when I wear it, so I decided to have a more formal, full-length version of that made in silk for my wedding.


This is the original dress:
2007-PocketEmbroideryJSK-1312093




Photos were taken by the fabulous Lydia Chen:

I highly recommend her for your event photography! (She is based in Northern California). She also took my engagement photos. Lydia is friendly, professional, creative and fun. She is also the photographer for the lolita blog Carousel of Crowns:

For my wedding dress, I asked a local friend of mine to make a floor-length version in silk taffeta. I also wanted little puff sleeves and some other modifications so it wasn't a direct copy.
