Gown by Amy-Jo Tatum

*You wear a gown in red with three tiers of ruffles and a matching lace veil. You carry a fan instead of flowers and marry on a hillside overlooking miles of vineyards.

*You wear an ankle-length ballet dress with a wreath of flowers around your head. You marry in the forest while a flutist plays, Afternoon of a Fawn.

RS Couture

You wear a long bouffant lace gown with fresh flowers in your hair instead of a veil. You’ve driven up the coast to a B&B just to get married in the garden there.*

*You wear an ivory crocheted lace mini dress and very long antique lace veil. Your wedding is in a country chapel and you carry your grandmother’s Bible instead of flowers.

*You wear a vintage gown from the 1930s with white gloves and a cocktail hat. The ceremony and reception are in an art gallery doing a David Hockney retrospective.

*Your gown is pink satin. You elope.

*You wear a double-breasted white suit with a wide brimmed felt hat and carry a single red rose. After you and your groom leave city hall you celebrate with four friends at a local restaurant.

*You wear an antique lace tea gown with a mantilla and carry three roses you picked out of your friend’s garden. And your friend’s hosting your wedding with high tea and sandwiches served on sterling silver and Haviland china.

*You wear a street-length A-line dress in all over Chantilly lace with a bird-cage veil. You and your groom board the ferry and after it takes off you have your nuptials on board. Your reception is on the other side of the bay once you dock.

*You wear an ivory suede sheath under a black leather jacket. Your veil is a long scarf. After tying the knot in a city park, you and your groom take off on his Harley. You don’t know where you’re going for your honeymoon yet.

As a former ballerina, I would have loved getting married in a tutu, prancing around in the forest...

Yes, those signs should tip anyone off... I love the idea of not knowing where to go for the honeymoon! What if you would actually hitch-hike somewhere and just take it from there? LOL

Such a great post sweetie. Wouldn't this post be wonderful to show little girls to just be themselves even on their wedding day! I even love when brides wear a different colored sashes with red lips.

I've always loved the idea of a ballerina length tulle confection. Vow renewal idea? Hmmmmmmm

Does having a colored petticoat under a white bridal gown count? 'coz that's what I'm planning to do. :-)
