I’m not overly girly but I like that that side of me can come out on my wedding day.  Just feel comfortable whatever you do and whatever you wear.  There are so many options out there!

I’m not a huge girly girl, I wear jeans, chucks, and a t-shirt every day! (In the summer it’s jeans, tank top, and flip flops lol) But I’m super exicted about getting all dolled up on our wedding day!

I have always wanted a wedding, but I’m also pretty shy, so I’m a little nervous for everyone to be watching me.

I’m not girly at all so I don’t want a big princess dress or formal affair when I get married. I want it more casual and relaxed because that is more me. I am only shy when I don’t know people but because my wedding will be all my good friends and family I kind of love the attention…hope that doesn’t sound awful.

I think I know what you mean. For me, it’s a little different- I don’t have a big problem with the idea of wearing white and being sort of on display on the day itself, but the planning interactions have been kind of weird for me. It kind of skeeves me out when people (in dress shops, etc.) refer to me as “the bride”, or grab my hand to look at my ring and make a big fuss. I just think it’s kind of weird, like people expect me to suddenly not be myself because I’m getting married. If anything, I want to be even more strongly myself about getting married, not get all artificially princessy!

The guys at work consider me one of the boys so I understand. That being said there are instances where my inner frou frou comes out and I am actually looking forward to it. Hahah  I once actually had worn a dress to school and I walked in to the kitchen in it because i went right from school to work and the chef said to me….birdie! Your a girl!    No shit lol

Not girly at all. I hate makeup, I rarely wear a dress (nor do I really like wedding dresses), and I can care less about accessories. I want to be a traditional bride without losing the tom-boy side in me.

I’m also horribly shy while my fiance is the most outgoing person I’ve ever met.

I’m not girly at all. Sometimes I do feel bad wearing my ering the days I slum in lounge pants. It makes me think since the ring is glamourous so should I. Lol. I have been trying to wear more makeup and fix my hair on a daily basis or at least a couple of times a week so the glam days of the bridal shoot, wedding, and reception won’t feel so foreign.

@Curious-gal: Ditto. Which is a big reason why our wedding is bare bones. I don’t want the hassles of wedding planning and I really don’t care about decorations at all. i just want to be married. What little we are doing (cake, wedding clothes, small lunch reception) is because Fiance wants to. I chose a simple dress and Fiance is the one asking if I’m going to get hair and makeup professionally done (no), and he wants me in a tiara and veil.

I’m a shy girl as well. I don’t want a big spectacle.

I wouldn’t say I’m a tom boy – I love skirts, dresses, Disney princess movies, Titanic, other girl things. But I’m not a girly girl. No high heels, pink, makeup, hair styling, shopping, etc. I’m low-key feminine lol.

@imalittlebirdie: Haha! I get this. I hang out with mostly guys who look at me as one of the guys and whenever we go somewhere dressed up and I wear a dress they make a huge fuss about how I “look like a girl” what..a shocker.

YES!!  All I can think of is that episode of Sex and the City where Carrie keeps saying ‘I’m missing the bride gene’!  Most of me doesn’t want the frills, but a tiny part of me (the part that thinks I’m a millionaire, haha) does.  I’m still so undecided!!
