wedding dresses have been the main topic this weekend.
i have pushed for a shorter wedding dress ever since i worked in a bridal shop and thought that the whole process was beyond ridiculous. i mean its white tulle people not perfection, or the end all or anything as close to as important as the brides i worked with often made it seem. did i mention that most look the same, strapless, white, sparkly and that it will seem outdated in like 3 years.
yet i tried on longer ones this weekend because my dad was here and it seemed fitting and fun. they are beautiful, its true. i love the more fitted types with lace and something about the train behind you is meaningful. it marks something different, its new, it enhances the mood somehow.
i still can't justify it though. the expense, the length, the yards of fabric, did i mention the expense? even the cheaper ones are still way more than i want to spend. especially when very beautiful and unique dresses are offered in shorter styles and price range. its a different expression of the day but none the less beautiful. any opinions?
