I’ve got my heart set on this dress for my wedding next year, Maggie Sottero, Lana dress:
While I am not Chinese (Filippina) my father is Chinese and I’ve always wanted a red dress for my wedding. So once I’ve gotten closer to my goal size (on the HCG diet, down 20 lbs!) I will order the dress and see if I actually like it. However, my mother wants me to wear her pearl earrings and pearl necklace for my wedding. (It’s informal, in Vegas, but hey, it’ll be mine. ) My sister wore her pearls for hers, but she had a traditional white dress.
A little about myself: I have darker skin, the color of coffee, brown eyes, and long very black hair. I wondered what you guys think about pearls with a red dress and my skin coloring. Here’s a BAD picture of me with my glasses, but you can see my hair and such. (Don’t mind the weird expression. This is also at the beginning of my weight loss so my face is chubbier.)

I think pearls would look cute with that dress! I love how you are going with the Chinese tradition of wearing red!

@ SweetAdeline — that’s what everyone says, lol! I’ve just never worn them a lot. They’re nice ones, too. Now I’ll have to order my geisha sticks to have a pearl hanging from it or something.
@ MissAsb – I’m glad someone appreciates the red dress! Everyone has sorta given me THAT look and sighed wistfully at the white ones online. 🙂 It’s going to be a surprise for my father, too.

Pretty dress. Do you plan to layer the pearls? Or just wear one long or short strand?

@ Wendy –I’m not sure how the pearls are, actually. What would you suggest? If I needed another strand, it’s easy to come by – my mom has a ton of pearls and other nice jewelry I could borrow.
I’m so relieved! If I’m not getting this dress, it’s going to be a different red one, lol. My mom really wants me to wear her pearls and I want to please her, I just wasn’t sure what went with them. I’m also having her walk me down the aisle wiht my dad, lol. I love her, she’s funny.

I have to be honest…I am a huge fan of layered pearls. Obviously this pic is noooo way near the look of your dress, but atleast you can kind of get the idea with both colors together.
I love the look of this necklace

Before I opened the post the title made me think of the red velvet cake article I read in line at Wal-Mart today. Yum! The dress is very pretty and I think the pearls would be a nice touch. I like how you will have something to represent both your mom and dad.
