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:


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.

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
