I have been reading The Knot and Martha Stewart Wedding magazines that feature the latest in wedding gowns. Designers are so creative!
It has been suggested by some of the writers in the magazines that brides should select a gown that will "stand the test of time". It should be traditional and timeless. This is so when you look at your wedding pictures years from now you won't say, "Oh my gosh! What was I thinking?"
I understand what they are saying, but if we all did this all the dresses would look the same. Why would we need all the styles we have today? What about the designers who have created these visions? I love 99.9% of the dresses in the magazines. There are a few that are "way out there", but I think a bride's gown should reflect her style. So what, if years from now you look at your pictures, your children laugh, and you wonder "What you were thinking?" It was your day and it was what you wanted.
