drowning in dresses

[drew] whip it


Well it shouldn't come as a surprise that I'm already starting to look at wedding dresses. It's a huge part of the day and I don't want any hiccups! I'll probably wait a few months to actually go places to try them on. But in the meantime, I've been scouring magazines and websites to get some clear ideas in my head of what I want.

I'm definitely thinking straps & A-line. I'm not sure on embroidary or any other little details. It would be great to be able to work some small amount of pink into it, but we'll see. Here's some examples of dresses that I'm drawn to.







We're planning to scout out locations next weekend, so we can set an official date. It will hopefully be somewhere around May 3, 2008. We're almost sure we will end up somewhere at Lake Las Vegas Resort. The Ritz-Carlton has the option of having colorful butterflies released after the ceremony. Um YEAH. I'm ALL ABOUT THAT. Even if we end up elsewhere, I want it! Haha.

unfortunately your pics wont show up on
this work computie, but i will be back to look
later, in my minds' eye i can sorta p icture what
you've described here & the image is AMAZING. aggh.

that property is BEAUTIFUL, whoa! i can totally picture
there on the lush green surrounded by sun & palms.

may 3, whoo! i almost wanna say Esther was married on
that day.... just b/c i remember her saying she'd be
walking the aisle as i woke up for my bday (the 2nd) and
with time zones, that makes sense.. hmm, i could be wrong
but.... :) that'd be neat if it worked out like that huh?

a colorful butterfly release would be freakin heaven to
witness :) i once read into that & read you can even have
your guests release one in honor of the couple after the
ceremony. hehehe. gosh, what a sight that will be!!

i hope you guys plan on booking a cinematographer so we can
all witness this via the computer screen ;)

you're excitement is contagious, Love. can't wait to come
see the dresses!!

:) eep!!!

all those dresses are so beautiful. I esp. like the 1st and 2nd one :)

HOLY CRAP!!! That resort is so friggin amazingly beautiful. Totally unbelieveable.

Colourful butterflies released after the ceremony? I couldn't think of anything more YOU then that. I always wanted butterflies released if I ever got married too :)

About butterfly releases. Please, read.

These were my ideas for my future wedding. I'm a hopeless romantic, you see.

Can't wait to hear more! This LJ gets me so darn excited. I even showed it to my boyfriend, but he didn't have much to say. Whatever.

I love the first three pictures and the last two pictures.
Such pretty dresses.

They are all so beautiful - you are going to make a beautiful bride :)
I can't wait for the rest of the planning process...it's so so fun.

Oooooh! Wow! Exciting! The dress is def. the #1 items
for the bride...& the ones you chose above are all
pretty spectacular. But something about #2 just
screams out to me...that's my favorite by far...
like 10 million times above the rest!

I just know whatever dress you choose will suit
you perfectly. You have such great taste. Have
you thought about flowers? Maybe daisies & some
other pink flower & just having the dress be white?
I also really like the idea of pink stitching on a dress.
A really small, simple & elegant way to incorporate
pink without it being too over the top.

"& at the end of Ashley & Geoff's ceremony, butterflies
were released into the air & it was the most beautiful
thing I've ever seen"....yup, that sounds about right!!! ;)

the 1st dress is really pretty... I like the fitted bodice a lot and I think it would suit your frame really well... Once you guys choose a venue, you'll be able to narrow down your dress search a lot more, when you get an idea in your head about what kind of theme it may be or what the day will be like overall, I'm sure one style will jump out at you from all the rest. You are lucky that you've got your sisters to help you out too (I think good taste runs in families :) ) lol... I think I can see you in a lot of different styles... like a Marilyn Monroe-esque white strapless (or halter) or a flow-y sheath dress... you'll look amazing regardless!!! :P
7th-Feb-2007 02:45 am (UTC)
wow, ok, so i came back to see the dresses.
and YESSS to all of them really, they would all be
so lovely on you!

#1, #3 & the last one are out of this world!!!

can't wait to see ya model some of these.... i've
got Julia all in my head thinking of this. too bad
ya dont have Robbie to help ya with the details. or...
Boy George for that matter!

hahahaaa

it's funny your talking about picking dresses for ur wedding,
cause I'm just watching the show Bam's Unholy Union on MTV,
& Bam & his g/f Missy are planning their wedding,
and she was just trying on dresses lol

Anyways...out of all those dresses I like #2 the most!

Ash,

You'd look a divine bride in any of those scrum-diddly-icious gowns,
since you just have the most smokin' body for any of those babies
to begin with, and could pull off any one of them, without a question
putting even catalog brides to shame.

I'm partial to the 5th one because of the way the bottom part hangs.
Also... the overall feeling of vintage-ness it possesses, as well as the
very last one cause the skirt is somewhat mermaid-esque, & therefor,
ultra you. I'm excited that you're definitely thinking straps. You've
these beautiful swanny arms, you were born for sure, for straps. :)

I'm freaking out with anxiousness for it all to be figured out. Most
especially your dress, yes, but besides that, your HAIR. I'm super
curious to see what you're going to do. Being that it's one of your
main most insanely gorgeous physical traits, seeing u wear it down
or even just partially down would be maddeningly lovely, but wow, if
I imagine you wearing it up with tendrils cascading here & there or
even the way Drew wore her hair @ the London M&L premiere (my
favie uppie do EVER!), I have to clutch my heart to even get through
the thought.

The Ritz Carlton! Woah, mama! That would be a fantasy & freaking
half, yes??? Golly, I can't even comprehend being able to be include
such a place in my wedding plans.

Lastly, I know in my heart the stars saw to it the whole releasing
of the butterflies thing was thunk-up specifically for the likes of
you & Jo. Maybe even D someday if she dares venture down that
road again. :)

You'll have the day of your dreams, Sis, I know it. Not because you
could be married at the Ritz Carlton or sport a dress like one of the
many above, but because you'll reach the end of that aisle and find
yourself face to face with the one boy born to be your other half. xo

Sooooo eeky at being able to be apart of all these plans, Sis! Yay!

it's lovely that you are making a journal dedicated to your wedding preparations :) i'll add this one as well ok?
i love pretty much every one of these dresses, but especially the first one, with the embroidery going all the way up to the strap and the last, because of the way the skirt flows. the woman in the forth picture looks evil haha
12th-Feb-2007 02:21 am (UTC) - this is yo sista ALB

#1 and #4 are the most unique while still being the most you!

omg, all of those dresses are lovely!!

i always said when i get married, i'll
wear something simple, white, puffy...

but i want so badly to have white beaded
butterflies on the bottom. =]

that's how i want my wedding dress.
if the dress doesn't come that way,
chances are i'll sew that on the dress!

i'm sure whatever dress you wear that dress,
will be beautiful because you will be wearing
it!
