@romanticone5555: i couldn’t agree more.  But I think with our generation comes new traditions and sometimes people have a hard time letting go of the older ones.

@romanticone5555: Wait…. I’m supposed to have a big poofy ballgown with my tiara?!?!?!?!  DAAMN.  😉  Oh… wait… i’m going for “elvish queen” instead of “Disney Princess”.  PHEW!!!!  Was worried for a minute! LOL!

Seriously, though, you’re absolutely right.  And the reason people think that way is because of the industry and what has been publicized in movies, games, books, magazines, and anywhere on TV it can be put.

Oh… and Disney.  Can’t forget Disney!!!

It’s annoying and frustrating as hell because the industry keeps shoving certain themes (from the dress to the lighting) into a bride’s face and tries to shove it down her gullet.  

For someone who loves fairy tales and hates the big poofy gowns (sorta… I love ’em, but I’d rather show off my figure, hehehehehe), I’m doing things MY way (and badgering my Fiance for his opinion all the time, too).  Of course, I’m also the kind who will do the exact opposite just to spite someone I don’t like.  Or argue them, depending on the situation and what it is.  Which is why I only have two bridal magazines: one from my DB gown shopping trip and another from a friend who gave it to me.  BOTH are hidden underneath crap in a drawer!

Well I think feeling like a Princess and looking like one are two different things. A wedding/ marriage is a pretty big milestone in one’s life, and I think people should have and do what they want. 

I also think if you care too much about what other people think and might say about your choices, you won’t be very happy in the end.

It’s your wedding so do what you want. No one else has the right to say anything about your choices, especially if they are not paying. Everyone has their own individual style and that even continues when they get married. If someone doesn’t like their choices, too bad.
