Even though I don’t miss shooting weddings, I do miss seeing the dress. My assistant and I loved to see what dress the bride picked out for her special day. Sometimes, they were just beautiful and sometimes, we wondered what they were thinking(cringe). I always wonder how a bride decides what dress she dreams of finding to wear on her special day.
For my wedding, I picked out the dress first before anything else and worked around that dress. I believe it’s all about the dress. It’s your big day to feel and look like a princess.
Now, when I look at all the beautiful styles of wedding dresses, I dream about wearing them too, or what I would have changed about the dress I wore. My dress had long sleeves, which was popular at the time and since I got married in March, it was cold out.
Now, I love dresses that are strapless like this one.
It’s very beautiful and I love how it flows. My dress also had a very long train, which was beautiful for walking down the aisle, but not so sure I would do that now.
I think I like this simple one as well.
You have to think about the rest of the day and how heavy, or in-the-way it might be for photos and the reception and dancing. Things I didn’t think about when choosing my wedding dress.
If the hubby and I renew our vows, I’ll have a blast trying on dresses again. I won’t go all big and fluffy, of course, but something simple and elegant.
