Wedding Bells

I'm not really one for watching television. I don't even have one right now. But when I do watch t.v., you can bet it's either

1. most any show on HGTV
2. Say Yes to the Dress

Say Yes to the Dress is a documentary type reality show on TLC. It takes place at the famous bridal shop, Kleinfeld, in New York. The new season just started, and oh man. Every time I watch this show, it sort of makes me want to get married.

Okay, more than sort of. In fact, I've already got it all planned out. My wedding dress will probably be similar to any one of these beauties.

Though the voluminous princess gowns are quite pretty, I can really only see myself in the slimmer, more form fitting styles.

These gowns are all by Lazaro. He may or may not be my favorite wedding dress designer of all time. His designs are on simpler side, and this allows him to capture the innocence of a classical bride perfectly. Even with this purity, his dresses still ooze a subtle sexiness that is sure to leave guests speechless with admiration.

This one is my favorite. I'm such a sucker for lace. It's sort of bad. A piece of clothing that has lace or bows never fails to break my resolve not to purchase anything when I'm "just looking". You know how it goes. You enter your favorite store against your better judgment. As an attempt to rationalize this illogical action, you say to yourself/boyfriend/mother/friend, "I'm not going to buy anything. I'm just going to look, and that's all."

Yea, right.

I'd love for my wedding ceremony to take place in a botanical garden at dusk, right as the sun is setting.

This part of the day has always been my favorite.

The soft glow of white lights will provide most of the illumination.

Every wedding has to have a theme. Mine, of course, would be no different. Think along the lines of cozy-winter-woodland-rustic executed on a semi-extravagant level.

That's right. I said it. I want to have one of those mega-weddings you hear about, where several hundred of your closets friends gather to celebrate and merry-make. Do I have several hundred close friends? No. Do I even really enjoy the company of most people? No, not really. But that's beside the point.

But yea, um, it's not like I've really given this topic that much thought.

  1. As mental as it sounds, I am so inclined to take this as a sign to do a post on my wedding especially as I woke up this morning with an unexplainable desire to try my dress on.

    p.s you would be surprised at just how many 'friends' you do have when they hear the words mega-wedding ;)


Thanks so much for your comments. I love hearing your feedback :)
