Dave's brother and sister are both getting married next summer, so the conversation often turns to 'weddings.' I was bored the other day and browsed the internet for dresses to see what I would pick if I were getting married. I'm not in a rush to get married - we've discussed and I'm/we're confident that it will happen, but there's no need to do it immediately. I'm also not looking forward to planning a wedding, so it doesn't need to be immediately! haha

However, I fell in love with a gorgeous dress/two dresses!

At my sister's wedding, I wore a Vera Wang bridesmaid gown and my sister wore Monique Lhuillier. I always also sorta assumed that I could wear her wedding gown to my wedding, cause I obviously have access to it, and Lhuillier gowns are gorgeous and aren't cheap - two wearings would be very cool. (She also had a second dress - I'm not totally a fan of strapless gowns though - they don't always look great on my figure - but go figure (no pun!) my Vera Wang maid's dress was strapless - ha. But it did have an asymmetrical waistline, so it wasn't just straight across)

Dress #2 at the reception:






Her Lhuillier dress and my Vera Wang dress.

Better view of the Lhuillier dress:




So back to my original point - I was browsing sites and fell in love with two dresses from Vera Wang:



and....


This second one closely resembles my sister's gown, in my opinion. The first one is just gorgeous and I think would really flatter my figure.

I have some time, but in the past, I'd look at gowns and hate all of them. I feel like the fashions for the upcoming seasons appear to match my tastes a bit more. I just hope I do get married while I still agree with the designers, and they don't go through another period where I don't like anything!! gah!!
Anyone else have a gown they love, even if they're totally not ready to get married? I also want a fairly small wedding, and I think these gowns might not match that tone - I dunno though.

I love how the sleeves are different from every other wedding dress you see on the market.

Thanks for showing me that link! I had never heard of those before!

My emotional favorite is Sleeping Beauty Style SB2722; http://disneybridal.com/spring2008/bridal/sleeping_beauty/sb2722/sb2722_images/sb2722.jpg It's so fun and fairy tale, but I'm not sure if I could pull off actually wearing it.

Nope. She bought the strapless embroidered dress first, then really fell in love with the other. So, she wore the Lhuillier to the church, then mid-reception, she changed, and surprised her husband in the new gown by singing to him. It was pretty neat.

But the I realized something kinda funny - you asked is it a tradition in my family - it really isn't, but my cousin also had two dresses at her wedding...hahaha...she had a formal one in church, and then a 3/4 length dress for dancing at her reception.

So maybe it is becoming a tradition on my family? haha

I love the top of Alyson's dress from the ceremony -- I want to have a dress similar to that at my wedding.

Dress shopping/browsing is always a blast. :)

I think this is what you need
Hello.
@RustyORun DVD Shrink and click on the "open files" tab at the top, click on the browse button and goto where the VIDEO_TS folder is located that was created by DVDFab, click on the folder to highlight it then click ok/open. Shrink will then import the files much the same way when you choose open disk, when it's done you can use shrink as you normally would.Use Anydvd and believe http://www.slysoft.com/en/anydvd.htmlDVDFab HD Decrypter (free)... http://www.dvdfab.com/free.htmDont Worry Be Happy:)
