Do you watch the show, "Say Yes To The Dress"?
I am OBSESSED with it.
My husband has no idea how I can watch hours upon hours of women just trying on wedding dresses.
I have no idea how anyone could resist!!
I love seeing the women try on all the different styles and trying to choose which one looks best on them. Often times I am yelling at the tv, "Pick that one! That other one looks ridiculous!". Sometimes they listen to me, sometimes they don't...
But that, mixed with the fact that my friend Maria, over at The BMC Report is helping to plan a wedding, has me wondering about how I would do things different if I got married today.
My husband and I are coming up on our 10th anniversary, and while I loved my wedding and had the best time planning it, I think that some of my tastes have changed since then and if I got married today, my wedding would definitely reflect that.
And of course, I would start with the dress.
Here is the dress I wore on my wedding day:
Now, I like this dress very much. It was within my small budget, it was traditional, (which is what I tend to go for), and was comfortable. And of course, it holds wonderful, beautiful memories for me.
IF I had to do it again, and
IF I had an unlimited budget, and
IF I had the body I wanted,
then here are some of the dresses I would be trying on!
|This dress is definitely different! The beaded bodice is so pretty and the detail on the skirt is impeccable!|
|This dress is romantic and sweet. I think the full ballgown skirt is soft and flattering. The slight bit of bling at the waist is the perfect touch.|
|If I wanted to go short and sassy, this would be my pick. Ideal for a more casual wedding and perfect for dancing!|
|This dress says chic! It is sophisticated, cool and classy. |
|This dress is GORGEOUS! Love the traditional style with the beautiful belt.|
This dress is a stunner. If I wanted drama, this would certainly be in the running!
And of course, I am a sucker for the back of a dress, too. Because let's face it, that is what most people are looking at most of the ceremony.
are some of my favorite backs...
The pattern on this is perfection. Simple and understated, and still magnificent!
My ABSOLUTE favorite back of all time! I WISH I could pull this off because it is timeless!
Who doesn't love a lace-up corset? And the champagne sash is just the right touch.
I don't know if I even have words...this is just amazing!
So there you have it! Now tell me, what would you change about your wedding??
