I'm going to be making my own wedding dress with the help of my old fashioned mother. My mom has always made comments about how your wedding dress says a lot about you, and I'm starting to wonder if maybe she's right.
The scoop : I had a shot gun wedding when I was 16, good ol' fashion downtown on a tuesday while being 5months pregnant ordeal. Long story short, it didnt last (duh) and this is my chance to do things right. (very exciting)
The fairytale of a wedding says the bride wears an all white dress signifying purity. Well, I hate all white, and am obviously not pure. Id love to makea wedding dress with a solid black corset top, and a flowing white skirt. (possibly pleated, possibly fluffy? Unsure.) But mom's worried about what "others" will think. Basically, im thinking my wedding, my dress, right? But she throws out there, what will his family think? On my big day to finally do things my way with the man of my dreams, I dont know if I want people wondering why im not wearing all white.
What are your opinions? Should wedding dresses be kept under the old fashioned rules, or are we in a new era?
