My youngest brother wedding in 2016.
My Sister-in-law wedding dress isn’t traditional wedding dress, not my cup of tea at all, but it suits her and her personality, it is HER wedding dress... you know what I mean? When you see something and you remind that piece to certain person/yourself.... everything about that dress is Her, her name is written all over it kind of thing.
I wanted to post my own but I haven’t login in fb and forgot my fb password and I’m too lazy to search the file in my DH computer.

Growing up, my parents are both busy with work. When I woke up they already left to work and when I went to bed they most likely wasn’t back yet. They worked 364days a year! I spend more time with my grandma, everyday after school I went to my grandma’s house, went back home when its after dinner time or before. In my grandparents house, they hang their B&W wedding picture. In the picture I feel my grandma is very elegant and graceful in her simple lace wedding dress. I know it sounds old, but when I was about getting married, I know I want a lace wedding dress without having so much frills, something like my grandma’s wedding dress..... and I kind of found it, but now looking back, gosshhhh... why I don’t have a decent picture of me in the dress??!!!! What did my wedding photographer did??!!!! :cry2::cry2::cry2:
this is all the “decent” pictures I have.
For the Church ceremony, I layered it with a lace long sleeved “cardigan(?)” and I took it off after Church and wear a sash for the party.

@munchee, your SIL's dress looks fit for a princess, and yours is so incredibly romantic and stunning.

DS, same with me, I haven't looked at my wedding pictures in a long time and I admit to taking a somewhat bittersweet stroll down memory lane for a while - the pics brought back the happiness of the day, but also a little sadness by the loss of some loved ones, and a little thrown by how young everyone is lol. I don't know where the time has gone.

And imo your dress is classic and timeless and I think daughter could definitely wear it!

Deb, this was such a great idea for a thread, so fun...I am really enjoying seeing everyone's dresses and hearing stories of their weddings. Everyone looks so beautiful!

I was married in 1984 in a church. It was very hot that day and everyone looks a bit wilted in the pics! My dress had a train and I did feel a little like a princess, at least for a few hours. :P2

I hadn’t seen your pic and can I just say you are so beautiful but I’m not surprised bc you are a such beautiful person from reading all your posts!

I finally got married in February. After 7 years of vehemently insisting that a perpetual engagement was good enough, the pandemic and all the travel restrictions etc made me realise that fine, maybe marriage had a few perks. And a pandemic marriage meant a good excuse not to have a party or invite anyone. We did a town hall wedding, masks required nearly the whole time.

My dress was a store return from BHLDN off ebay. And I borrowed the feather wrap and all the jewelery... Classy classy :lol:

I married my high school sweetheart in 1992. I remember trying on so many wedding dresses and ended up buying the first one I tried on! It was an A line cream silk with lots of beading on the bodice and small sleeves, which was unusual for the 90’s which was big puffy sleeves. I did have the high buffy hair though...haha!
I’ve really enjoyed looking at all the beautiful brides and their gorgeous wedding gowns.

I love this thread.

I was really drawn to more modest styles with long sleeves...I am a bit...erm...buxom, AND 6"1. It was impossible to find anything, so I went fully custom with a wonderful designer. In total with the veil it was ~$2,500.

It was real french lace, had a full cathedral train and it felt like I was like wearing seafoam - light and airy. I loved it.

We had to cancel original plans due to COVID-19, and got married with only close family and friends in my mom's friend's gorgeous backyard. Everyone in the town pitched in. Her boyfriend made an arbor, the ONLY restaurant in town hosted our "reception" and a baker made us a small cake last minute - we had burgers and fries for dinner :lol:

It was a moody, misty, rainy day. It felt like we got married at the edge of the world. My dress got soaked - we embraced it and went to the beach. It was wonderful.

Campidoglio in Rome in my off-the-rack last minute buy dress. Freaking hot October day. My feet swelled into my matching pumps. DH was wise to pair his tux with Nikes.

Thank you, c-gal! We’re pretty jazzed that we actually went through with it - LOL!

(I’d insert a blushing emotie here, but... technical difficulties.)

I might have started a PS-appropriate thread somewhere...

Everyone is so BEAUTIFUL!

First wedding 1989. Dress was about $300 from a local bridal dress store. This was the first I tried on of about 6. Only alterations were $20 to fill the sleeves and $20 to lift the front so I did not step on the bottom. My friend that got married the same year purchased a $1,000 dress and had over $1,000 in alterations.

Second wedding in 1998 (current husband). Dress was $313 from the Jessica McClintock store.

Here's the page from the dress catalog. I still have the page but no longer have the dress (and I no longer wear a size 6 :cry2:)

I made my veils/headwear.

I got married in 2004, in the US. Church wedding, 20 year old (barely!) bride. It was definitely the era of all things strapless with big a-line skirts. Neither suited me. I looked like a baby playing dress up in everything I tried, and I sort of subconsciously wanted to hide (hence the GIANT flowers, and sleeves in July )
So, I had a lovely lady custom make my dress. Lots I would do differently today, but nearly 17 years later, I still love the dress and the guy! 8FBD6626-D9C1-44EB-A508-A65973041692.jpeg
