I’m getting married in winter at City Hall with my dad as our only witness so initially I didn’t want an expensive wedding dress and was going to just find a casual dress.
But then Fiance began talking about finding a suit, so i thought “ok, maybe a white cocktail dress to be a little dressy if he’s getting a suit” However, (I’m assuming since it’s November) most department stores don’t have many cocktail dresses, much less white ones.
Then we looked for formal places with the intention of getting a short white dress.The lady at David’s Bridal couldn’t find the short dress she wanted to suggest so I said “ok, it can be long, I just don’t want any frills on it.”
I don’t know what happened. She started dressing me in these pretty gowns and I ended up buying this one. I didn’t know I was getting my picture taken or I would have smiled lol:
We’re having an elaborate wedding ceremony with his family on our honeymoon so I guess in the end it’s better to have a fancier dress than a plainer one. It’s a little too loose so I’m going back next next week for alterations and steaming. Yay!

They also have “little white dresses” for the reception. 🙂 but I love that one

@gogogiraffes: I thought about 2 dresses – one for the big ceremony and one for the little one.
Then I figured “nah, just have one. screw it” I already paid a bunch of money for this one so i figure I might as well get as much use out of it as possible

It looks stunning on you. I think it willl be fun to wear – after all, when else can you where a long white dress? And even though it is long, it is definitely not over the top. Great choice!

@totheislnds: Thank you, and I think we have great taste in wedding dates, haha
My future father in law picked the date. He thought it would be cool to have our anniversary numbers be 02 12 2012
the only other interesting option was 12/12/12 but it’s too soon 🙁

@harleyq: makes it easy to remember! we originally wanted a spring wedding (april/may) but my brother was being deployed over seas in late feb/early march so we picked the farthest date out without compromising his presence at our wedding. so we landed on that date by default haha but i acutally love it. we had our wedding day, valentines day and my husbands birthday all in the same week! made for an AWESOME honeymoon 🙂

That is such an amazing dress though, so I think it’s perfect! Besides, if you are having a larger ceremony later and you only had a little short dress, you might have regreted it later.
