As I was trying to decide what to wear to my son's upcoming wedding, my mind drifted back to my own second wedding. I had decided to throw convention to the wind and wear a Sari for the big day, as it was a second wedding, and a cream or beige seemed a tad traditional. With this in mind, I began my internet search for “Downtown Abbey Style Dresses” to match the Art Nouveau style of Sebel Playford in Adelaide, where my son's wedding reception was going to be held.
I am known for my different sense of fashion and tend to wear bright, and uniquely eclectic clothes, so with my sons direction, we decided my garb should be a little more classic for the big event. I was a little nervous about buying online. All I knew is that the bridesmaids were set to wear plum and I wanted to complement them in photographs, but I didn't want to revert back to my classic black ensembles that I wear when I feel I need to look more sedate.
Buying online can be tricky, but with the proper measurements and helpful descriptions, I was able to find the perfect dress in my size for the special occasion. I received many compliments the night of my son's wedding reception. I am thankful for the great service and hope to purchase another dress in the future.
