At first I thought no, not another a wedding dress shop with outsized women in mind, or with some fairy or other magical creature involved. But then it went into another direction. The concept of a vintage dress shop was lovely. And I was almost tempted to find one and give them mine. Yes, I still have it. And no, it hasn’t gone into the dressing up box. But no, it won’t fit me – or my daughter, but who knows, maybe a grand-daughter? It is very much of its era. Victorian themed with sprigs of lilac flowers on cream. Long sleeves and tucked in waist. Full length of course – but then I needed to hide my cast on my leg on the day!
I liked the idea that a dress ‘whispered’. But really felt that a dress can only tell you about the day and not what happens afterwards.
Overall, I liked the story-telling and the romance and the exploration of what happens behind closed doors in a wedding and its reasons.
