What do ya'll think? This will be both of ours second marriages. And we both want a nice, formal wedding. Not GINORMOUS or anything...but med/large sized. I have found my dress and am thinking about getting it now eventhough the wedding is a year away. But, I am in love w/this dress!! It's gorgeous!! I saw it on a mannequin(sp) in the window and just new that was the one I wanted. It's so perfect!!! It's hand made and everyint on it is just maticulously placed. It's gorgeou!! But...it's white. So, what do you think? I know used to people wore white as a symbol of virginity and purity but seeing as how we have both been married before..that's not our case. But, i really want a white dress. I don't like cream or anything like that. So, what's your opinion??
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me hapy when skies are grey. You'll never know dear, how much I love you..please don't take my sunshine away!
Oscar'sMomma, I think the old thinking about white being for virginity is really a joke. Let's face it, how many first time brides are virgins? I think if you love that dress you should have it. If you want to throw some colour in there, wear some colourful jewellery! Good luck with the wedding.
I agree with everyone else. My wedding dress that I fell in love with happened to be off white. A color is a color. Who cares about tradition. I, for one, had the most untraditional wedding you can think of. Who wants to do what everyone else is doing. It's your wedding, your day. Get what you want. If you don't, you will regret it.
"We have enough youth, how about a fountain of smart"
it's your big day. make it all yours. it doesn't matter what everyone else thinks or say about it. you should be happy on your wedding day. and if that white dress will make you happy, then buy that dress and wear it with pride. 8^)
Go for it. Get the white dress!!! It's all about you and like someone else said - that whole white purity thing is soooooooo dated. It's a new era; a lot of the older traditions are long gone as well. Nowadays couples are paying for everything and such. So yeah, make it all about you and enjoy it. No regrets!!!
I wore a white dress when i got married- I wasnt married before but had a 6 year relationship with my childrens father. My husband was never married either, Our familys didnt like each other and my husbands step father said if we went to Vegas he would pay the hole thing so he didnt have to be around my parents..lol So we went to Vegas! It was so much fun. Im not that close to my family so it wasnt a big deal. But all of his family came - most live in Cali so they drove and his mom flew to Vegas and aunts and uncles and it was like a family reunion. The first time meeting all of them but his mom we live in the same town and im very close to his mom, shes like my best friend.
But I do wish i would of had a big wedding, and not the little white chapel..lol its where brittany got married, even tho i was married there first..lol It was such a amazing 10 days tho . The first time i was ever on a air plane or even out of Michigan, So it was awsome and i will never forget it. My kids didnt come tho they were so small at the time. I had his neice be my braids maid and that was the first time i met her, so i was uncomfortable being shy like i am- We always talked tho we would have a big wedding down the road for our friends and family and we never did- I aften laugh and say i wonder if were really married..lol You never know with Vegas- But it was a time i will never forget. and oh by the way the first time in a airplane i thought i was going to die- BIG storm and the turbalnce was so bad everyone was screaming and i thought i was going to die- swore i would never get on anther plane ever- But i do every year when we go to Cali for our vacation..lol
Wear what you want to wear. so many brides are wearing off the wall colors and not just white anymore- some wear black and hot pink- its not traditianl weddings anymore its what you want- what ever you decide im sure it will be awsome
