    I was always keen on mythology especially on Roman and Greek goddesses and thus whenever I was invited to a masked party I would try to dress up like a Greek maiden. And now my dream is to have my wedding themed as such. But as much as I have looked for a Greek or Roman dress that would please me I couldn’t find one. Until now. I especially like the knot-wedding dress in third picture. It is simple yet the embroidery very elaborate and its fluidity makes me think of Aphrodite. Unfortunately I believe it is quite expensive, so I couldn’t afford it. But it’s quite an inspiration.
