Not all brides have to wear dresses. Not all brides have to wear white. Not all brides have to follow any customers; in fact, there are no rules to which any bride is obliged. However, there is only one thing we ask: consistency and going in one direction.
Now seriously. If you wanted to wear a pair of pants as your wedding gown (which you are entitled to), then why bother with the extra piece of fabric covering them all up? This could have worked well, and we are big supporters of brides in pants, but there’s a time when you just have to make up your mind.
The Devil Wears a Wedding Dress
Who said goth people only wear black? The bride who is going to wear this dress obviously had a less-than-conventional wedding, but they didn’t give up on a gown in traditional white, giving it a gothic touch. We suggest white military boots and horns just to finish up this look.
Imagine this: a dark dungeon, hundreds of bats hanging from the selling, tens of gothic dancers nodding their heads violently up and down, splashes of dark paint adorning the walls and the center of attention, one bride in white. We hate to think that the bride might not be drawing all of the attention.
Long Train Running
This is what we call participation. This is what we call solidarity. One way of getting your guests to stand still and not block anyone’s view during the ceremony is to let them hold the dress’s train. Unfortunately, the train is rarely that long.
This way, all the guests are taking part in the event. So, if you ever have a day off with nothing really important to do, head up into town, look for a bride, groom, and a long veil, and hop on. This is what we call taking part in an event you were not invited to.
Where Did the Bride Go?
Can anybody see the bride!? We think she got a little confused about the color of the dress she had to choose. It's not that hard to make as all you need is a traditional white gown and some black dye; however, we’re really wondering the type of bride who would want this for her big day.
What do you think the groom will be wearing? Will he go for the obvious suit, or will he surprise us with a white one? We will never know. And besides, where was it written that brides must wear white and that brides must look like brides?
No, it's not someone getting ready for Halloween or a fancy dress party; this is, in fact, a bride on her wedding day. She deliberately put a horn on the front of her head. Yep, that’s one bride believing she is a unicorn. This bride’s going to have a good time on her wedding day, that’s a definite.
Would we choose this for our wedding gown? Probably not, but hey, if it makes her happy, then the groom’s happy. And if the groom is happy, well, you know what they say. If the groom is happy, then everyone is happy. Or is it the other way?
