Here Comes the 4L Bride!

A Blushing Bride for Just 4L

Love is in the air and SL’s wedding season approaches.  Valentine’s Day weddings have a been the seasonal kick off since the beginning of time (well, virtual time, anyway).  But, what’s a bride to do if she doesn’t have oodles of Linden to spend on her special day?  Never fear, Desi is here!

I set out to create an entire wedding outfit for less than 200L including dress, shoes, hair, flowers, jewelry, makeup, and a pose. I had two rules: the outfit would have to be something I would actually wear and the items couldn’t be part of a weekly/weekend special so they’d be available to our FabFree Readers if they wanted to check them out.  In the end, this amazing outfit only cost FOUR (4!) Linden!!! (Plus a group join fee!)

Assembling an elegant bridal package was a harder task than I could have imagined, but thanks to hints and tips from my blogging sister, Jacx Broome-Waverider, I ended up with a beautiful ensemble to reflect my own tastes in bridal finery.

First, I had to say yes to a dress.   I hopped on over to Siss Boom because I remembered seeing a white gown on the Lucky Boards.  You can read more about my obsession with Siss Boom‘s FREE no-group lucky boards here.  It took about 20 minutes, but HOORAY!  I found a beautiful simple white gown named Wayward.  It’s elegant and comes in two styles – sheer and solid.  I am wearing shear.  The solid version has modesty backing to the top.  Cost : FREE!!!

Dress Sizes:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • TMP

Next came hair.  Jacx reminded me that No-Match recently had a bun posted as the group gift. We teleported over to find a new group gift, but quickly made our way to the VIP room.  The group gift was not actually a bun, but, rather, hair attachments (called No-Embrace) that could be used with bridal hair. However, in perusing the fabulous room of VIP Gifts, I found No_You Rock which is my style of a messy but classy updo complete with pearls in it.  I paired that with the No-Embrace Pearls accessory to create a pretty head of hair for the wedding outfit.  Price: two free group gifts with 50L join.

Beloved & Truth Closeup

I tried to find a nice veil for cheap, but didn’t score.  The ones I tested off of MP were, well, circa 2006.  I did, however, find a pretty Pearl and Pewter Tiara from Nightfairy.  You have to fiddle a little with it, but, overall, it works.  Cost: 1L

For jewelry, I stalked MP for a good hour to find something pretty.  I found two sets from Beloved that I liked, but settled on the Teardrop set in Silver because it matched the Tiara.  Cost: 1L

For flowers, I found a simple but pretty bouquet at Wedding Princesse on MP that is currently being offered as a dollarbie.  This really is a no-frills bouquet, but you only need it for a hot minute before the dancing begins!  Cost: 1L

For shoes, I found LaPerla’s Apple Sandal for Maitreya in White on MP.  They are simple and pretty, but you really can’t see them under the dress. Cost: 1L

Finally, to strike a pose for my official wedding album, Jacx sent me to MP to An Lar poses where for 0 Linden, I picked Like a Lady #4.  Cost: FREE!!!

Total Cost for this outfit and pose?  4L (plus 50L group fee for No-Match)
