For November I wanted to try re-creating the wedding from the November Rain video. November Rain is the best rock video of all time featuring one of the best guitar solos of all time. This is one of my favorite songs.
I’m starting with the wedding gown. I searched all over and could not find a high-low wedding dress with puffy sleeves. I did however, find this cap sleeve dress, which I think makes a perfect substitute. It features the same high low style with a sweetheart neckline.
I love the back of this gown, and the floral sleeves. The sleeves can always be altered, or just worn off the shoulder to create the same look the bride has on the video.
I found a wedding veil with a bow on it. It can be worn on the top of the head to create the same look as the image below.
I can’t really see the earrings well, but I think these beautiful vintage dangle earrings are a perfect fit for this look.
The bride’s bouquet is elegant, simple and not overdone. Jenny’s Flower Shop on Etsy has a pretty Calla Lily Bouquet made with artificial flowers. Global Rose has a fresh flower bouquet with Calla Lilies and Roses. I like them both.
The Maid of Honor in the video is wearing a tight, red dress, closely fitted to the body. However, I don’t want my maid of honor wearing anything that sexy. Red stands out a lot on it’s own. So, this red dress gives you a similar look, but it’s not as sexy as the dress in the video. It’s not as tight, and it’s a deeper red.
The flower girl’s dress, I found, is very difficult to find. I was looking for a princess dress with puff sleeves, high sash, see through mesh and a mock neck. I couldn’t find it. I think this is a dress you would have to get made. Fox Gown has a wide variety of classic flower girl dresses. Here are two dresses with sashes, one with cap sleeves. The sashes comes in different colors.To recreate the video look, we would go with white.
For the groom I found this!
Amazing right? This is on Deviant Art of all places. It was posted by Oruntia.
Okay, so here is where I put it all together:
The wedding cake is from Three Brother’s Bakery in Houston
The Garter is from Garter Lady‘s shop on Etsy.
This is a theme that I wasn’t so sure about, but even though these are Halloween colors it actually came out really nice.

Angelina Jolie’s wedding gown was designed by Luigi Massi of Atelier Versace. The beautiful train featured designs based off of drawings made by Angie & Brad’s children. This really shows how talented the designer is. When you can turn some children’s artwork, into an elegant and classy gown, then you are very talented. I think this is the cutest, and most unique wedding dress idea that I’ve ever seen. The kids must have felt so special. As a mom, when I saw this dress, I got super excited and wanted to talk to everyone about it. It was beautiful, and one of a kind.
Okay, so I loved Angelina’s dress so much that I thought, ‘why not explore this drawings on the dress thing?’ I played around with a few looks below:
This was a fun activity. If you want to see the real dresses used in this post you can check out the links below:
Mariah Carey always looks beautiful, but I absolutely love how beautiful she looked when she married Tommy Mottola in 1993. She wore a $25,000 Vera Wang Gown with a 27-foot-long train. Her huge bouquet worked well with her big dress. Her tiara was a nice touch and she looked much more like royalty than Kim Kardashian ever will.
