Anyone watch the Grey’s Anatomy wedding this week? While it was sweet and I cried just a touch, I have to admit that I hated the dress. And every dress Meredith tried on in the "trying on dresses at the hospital" episode. They almost all seemed drastically out of date to me. And it made me scared to go dress shopping, is that what things are really like out there?!

I haven’t watched last night’s episode yet… will do tomorrow or Sunday.
I wasn’t overly thrilled w ith the dresses she tried on in the hospital either.
Christina’s dress for the wedding to Burke was BEAUTIFUL though

I agree. I thought all of the dresses she tried on were quite out of date and to be honest hideous! The one that was in last nights episode was much better I thought but still not WONDERFUL!! lol You’d thnk they would get a real big designer to lend a dress to them or something?

I think the dress from the episode was different than the one meredith decided on, or at least it looked very different in the episode. I loved Izzie’s hair though. I think it might be good short hair inspiration.

Okay, I Just watched. I thought the wedding dress wasn’t the best but it was different, and a different silouhette than what you would expect for her (IMO).
I cried like a baby. I have to say that even though Grey’s hasn’t been great since like Season 3, I still cry all the time.

I am pretty sure the dress Izzie wore in the last episode was the same dress that Meredith decided on (which i thought odd since Mere would have had it altered to fit her by then, and would in no way have fit Izzie after that)… but, it did look very different on their body types… I personally feel that that particular dress looked waaay better on katherine heigl than ellen pompeo, and after everyone talked about how much it wasn’t meredith’s style, I can’t help but wonder if they did that on purpose so it would look best on Izzie.
also, I think that the earlier dresses that Meredith tried on were purposely bad to enhance Izzie’s love for the poofy dresses and Meredith’s disdain for them.

Izzy told Meredith she picked a bunch of dresses she knew she’d hate. And I think that they really focused on how much Izzy was planning everything, and you could see the twist coming. But I think the dress looked gorgeous for Izzy’s shape, much better than on Meredith. (I liked the BM dresses!!)
I cried like a baby too! And I’m making FI watch it with me.

I think the point was to have an overly princess-style dress for Izzie’s fairytale dream wedding. Granted, there are some prettier princess styles, but in general, those grand dresses are going to look dated, IMO. The whole wedding thing required a lot of "suspension of disbelief" – like the 400 guests that showed up for a different couple. i kept wondering who was on the the front row! I am looking forward to seeing what Meredith chooses, assuming she and Derek DO actually get married – I’m thinking they will have a small, unconventional ceremony and she’ll wear something simple & sexy.
