lawofar18: (Femme Fatale)
I thought I'd do this post for fun, for everyone who enjoys looking at pretty dresses as much as I do. So here it is, my wedding dress runner-ups!

I at first wanted a full-out themed wedding, complete with Lord of the Rings-inspired gown. Then I realized there was no way I could afford one of these dresses. But it's pretty, eh?

My tastes then shifted to more of a medieval/princess look, but again, a look inside the wallet told me that was no-go.

So I thought, "Alright then, I'll just go for a full-out Cinderella-type gown. Those are common enough to be affordable." Unfortunately, I soon discovered that I was a midget too short to pull it off, as the puffy skirts tended to completely overwhelm me.

Then I watched Moulin Rouge and badly wanted the Hindu wedding dress for awhile...until I found out that I was not Nicole Kidman (and I was quite sad about it, too).

Right about now, my tastes managed to get a bit more reasonable. This dress was lovely, but I wasn't crazy about it. And the Alfred Angelo salesgirl was too annoyingly pushy.

I never got to try this on (it was way over my budget anyway), but I love looking at it. Don't you just want to sink into it?!

Beautiful dress, but I had an aversion to all-satin for some reason (I have no idea why still).

My third place dress goes to this one, because it's simply adorable. But the salon wouldn't let me take pictures of it, and it soon faded from my mind, so I figured I didn't like it enough anyway. Their loss!

And now my runner-up. I LOVE LOVE LOOOOOOVE this dress. It's gorgeous, and the skirt is everything I wanted. Three problems though: 1) The poofy skirt still didn't do my height any favors, 2) The beading on the bodice irritated my underarms, and 3) It cost twice as much as The Dress. Aha...yeah. So I don't regret my decision, but I still like to look at the gown wistfully every now and then.

And there you have it. My not-so-epic dress saga.

Leaving for Buffalo tomorrow, then to Cleveland. The thought of being away from internet so long FRIGHTENS ME.

As well as the COLD. HOW WILL I SURVIVE?!
