I knew I wanted velvet as soon as I got engaged, but was met with crazy eyes by other people who assumed I meantime crushed velvet. I think smooth velvet dresses in a gorgeous jewel tone color will be the perfect touch of glamour for the big day!

So great to have a totally different fabric option.. though I feel it would be too heavy in the June heat.
