It's once again Fabulous Friday here at Dolly Couture, and check out this retro gal! This wedding sounded super fun and hip!
Couple: Robin & Ken
Wedding Date: April 27, 2013
"We had a rockabilly wedding, complete with a classic car, tattoo flash, pinup and greaser stations, a rocking band with an upright bass, and loads of smiling faces."
Dress: Robin wore our Luxor. Robin customized with a net/organdy stand alone petticoat (check out our accessories section) in peacock. She also added a 3/4 length bolero. Robin also had straps made and a custom sash to match her petticoat.
Favorite moment from the wedding:
"A little back story to my favorite moment of my wedding...The day before I met Ken I told my cousin that all I wanted was to meet a nice greaser, who rides a motorcycle and would sing me Elvis songs. Ken is a greaser and rides a motorcycle, and until our wedding day had never sang me an Elvis song. And then he got up, in front of all of our family and friends to sing "Teddy Bear" with the band. It was a wonderful surprise to me, and my definitely my favorite moment."
What made you choose DC?
"When I went to find a wedding dress, I knew I wanted a short dress which is not common, and I knew I wanted a personal experience. The second I stepped into the NYC store, I knew I was not walking out without being an owner of a DC bridal dress."
Advice for future DC brides:
"My advice for future DC brides is to step back and look around and just enjoy the moment. Yvette was amazing to boot. She knew exactly what would look best on me. The dress I bought wasn't even one I had in mind. Once I tried it on, I was in love."
Robin has told me she plans on dying her dress so she can wear it again. Congrats Robin & Ken!
