Christina MacFarlane Wedding

MacFarlane had plans of having a big wedding before the corona virus pandemic came in. She had to post the big wedding indefinitely. Instead, she had a scaled-down event in Scotland and wanted something flattering that she could wear again afterwards. She snapped up a midi-length puff-sleeve design from party-wear label Rotate Birger Christensen on Instagram.

“The dress cost £220 and was not even labelled as bridal,” she says. “I love Rotate, but I never imagined I would get my wedding dress from there. I also bought a pair of Aquazzura pump heels to go with it — and they cost three times as much as the dress.”
