I totally know I can do what what ever my heart desires! However, I want my wedding to be as much of a reflection of us as it can be, while still maintaining some tradition, elegance and class.
I’ve been married before, have kids and I’m getting married in my mid 40’s. His mother already had a sigh about the dresses I showed her I was contemplating, with the question “You’re going to wear white?” I was taken aback but handled it like a pro. Later, I discussed this with my own mother and she agrees with her, saying I’m too old and “not pure.”
And although I can do as I please - what exactly is the norm here in today’s open minded society. It doesn’t help that I’m Roman Catholic and he’s not, and we’re having a church wedding (to atone for my previous sins) - as these things go I don’t want to be the topic of the can you believe she wore white gossip among his enormous female population.
Our colors are black and white (off white/ivory). I guess I’m asking what exactly is the traditional view point here and how would you recommend a happy medium?
Don’t worry my fresh snow pure white dress is still a very HUGE possibility- partially because I’m the black sheep like that. But at 45 is that practical or necessary? Or I can go bold and get wear Red!
