I haven’t posted in a few days, it’s been busy around here and I just never sat down and fixed up a blog post for you. I’m sorry. But the good news is, I’m posting this-which-you-are-reading… okay. So, to get to the point:
I started a little earlier than September for the 30 days, so now I’m actually on schedule, doing day 14 on 9-14. 🙂
Day 14 – Your Dream Wedding
Well, while I don’t have it all meticulously planned out and nothing is set it stone, I do have a couple ideas that I would like in my wedding someday.
I don’t want strapless, and I don’t want a plunging neckline. I’d love short sleeves but preferably made of lace or something slightly sheer.
I want it full-length with a train, but one that can loop up and be fastened in the back when it’s time for dancing… because I’d love to have dancing (English Country Dance, anyone?) at the reception. 🙂
<- this dress comes pretty close to being my dream dress. But it’s not quite perfect. I’d actually prefer a slightly off-white wedding dress instead of stark, pure white. Cream and Ivory are more flattering to my skin. 🙂
I’d rather have it lacier near the top, sort of like this…
I really like the lacy overlay look, but this dress is too low-cut. Mine would need to be a few inches higher for my taste. And there’s not quite enough sleeve… there are still armpits showing. 😛 If the lace came a few inches longer all the way around the sleeve, it would be gorgeous and exactly what I was imagining.
I very much like the bow at the waist ->
… and the fact that the lace overlay stops at the hips instead of continuing all the way down the dress.
My dream dress would have sparkling crystals and embroidered flourishes (swirly shapes) scattered down the skirt.
Hairstyle? I want to wear my hair long, all the way down my back. But I’d like to make the top look beautiful and styled. White flowers and a touch of curls.
As for the ceremony… short and sweet. Not much longer than 40 minutes. I don’t want to do unity candles or unity sand, but I’m open to the idea of washing each other’s feet.
And I’d be kind of AMAZINGLY thrilled if it looked something like this:
I definitely want white flowers. Roses, lilies, lily-of-the-valley, hyacinth, peonies, gardenias, whatever, but all white. 🙂 Perhaps hanging round balloons with marbles in them for stability, like this:
I want around 7 bridesmaids. 😉
And a cake exactly like this:
So… those are a few of my ideas. 😀
What would you do for your dream wedding?
