This is one of my all time favorite dresses. The thing I love the most about this wedding is the dress, it’s stylish, lovely and unique (and it has a deep V in the back, in the center picture, I love that the most). To top it all off it was made by a friend of the bride, which makes it personal too.
In the end, if I end up having a short wedding dress, it may be this series of pictures that helped me make the final decision. If there is one thing I want to do at my wedding it’s DANCE (and I want everyone else to be dancing too). At a party I like any kind of music I can dance to: klezmer, R&B;, swing, soul, country, rock. I’ve started to realize that most wedding dresses are not made with serious dancing in mind. Maybe a teary eyed slow dance, but not the hora, the jitterbug, the twist, and the electric slide.
What do you guys think? Can you make a long (non poofy) dress work for dancing? Is short the way to go? What crazy tests should I be doing at bridal salons? (I’m getting a dress made of course, but testing samples at bridal salons.) Thank goodness I ruled out a train already!
