Happy Friday, hunnies!
I have to be honest with you; I am at a complete loss for how to start off this post because I’m sitting here waiting to leave for his and hers dermatologist appointments and I’m very on edge. We’re going together because I have this secret (not so secret anymore) deep-seated fear of dermatologists, and Honey has to dermatologist-ambush me when he wants me to go. I can’t seem to kick the assumption that the next time I see a dermatologist, s/he’s going to tell me that one of my 5 million+ freckles has the C Word in it.. I don’t go very often for this reason. It’s more like almost never (I realize this is terrible). It’s that whole *I’d rather not know* thing. I’ve been a total baby about this one thing in my life. Definitely glad I have Honey to force me into it.
Anyway whenever I can’t think straight/am too nervous to write, I like to employ my crutch: Bambino pics. Enjoy!
I instantly fell in love with a less than traditional colored gown on my first day of gown shopping and bought it that day! And while I still love my dress, I am stuck in a dilemma. Since I did choose a colored gown I want to make sure I still feel like a bride, and not just a fabulously dressed gal. But veils typically only come in white or ivory!
We all typically assume that the veil should match the gown but I am curious what you think? Go for the mismatched look? Try and find something that will match? Or just give up and go with a fabulous hair accessory?
So, with colored gowns being all the rage these days, I wonder what real brides are choosing in leu of veils.
You’re going to see some blue-ish black-ish dresses in this post. Notice that none of them are wearing anything on their heads. I’m a fan of keeping the area about the face and neck free and clear of extra pizzazz, when you’ve got a colorful gown doing all the work already.
But it’s your call, of course. I can’t wait to find out what you decide!
Turning it over to you guys now… do you have any advice or suggestions for Miss K?
Ok, SO! The question in the title that asks, “would you wear one of these dresses…” is coming into play now. It was Enzoani that turned out to be my top pick in the Miss Ultimate Supreme 2012 Bridal Market Dress Pageant, in the category of “colorful applique frocks.” And you guys… I wish you could have seen this first one in person.
When I came upon it during bridal market I yelled out “holy crap you guys, this dress!” Which was weird because I was alone at the time. But anyway whether you love colorful wedding dresses or they’re not really your thing, it’s hard to ignore the radness of what’s happening below. I’m curious: would you consider wearing a colorful dress on your wedding day? Do you know anyone who has?
As a person who generally enjoys looking at things that encourage dopamine release, personally I’m a fan.
Some other pretties I took shots of:
Here’s some more professional-looking eye candy, sent over by Enzoani. Now I want you to pay special attention to the first one because holy shit. The first one.
Sans the belly floof I am super digging this one:
Okie dokie, that’s about it! What did you think of all these dresses?
By the way, if you happen to have any advice for Miss K, would love to hear it.
And: would you dare wear something other than white on your wedding day? Really curious where you all stand on that issue.
kisses and hugs, guys.. and wish me luck today, please. :)
