Now we all know that Love My Dress is the home of fantastic real weddings (err, hello four – yes, count them, four – nominations in the Wedding Blog Awards!) and I have to say that my head is always full of the amazing things I’ve seen. If I had to put together an end of year post featuring some of the most brilliant, I’d hardly know where to start.
That said, a wedding full of original vintage details and waitresses dressed in vintage Playboy Bunny outfits sourced by the bride is always going to make my list. So today, you can understand why I’m beyond excited to introduce you to that super creative bride, Francesca and her company, The Fabulous Vintage Bride…
