When I was looking for my wedding dress, I wanted something sleek and sexy and slinky. I wanted my soon-to-be-husband to see me and his eyes pop out of his head!
Then I went looking and reality set in: my body is not slinky. (I'm sexy, though, don't hate!). I'm short, thick on the bottom and I have stubby legs. The dress I envisioned was not to be.
I eventually settled on a dress that looked great on me even though it was not my "dream" dress. For me, looking good was more important than forcing myself into a dress style that wasn't flattering to me and my body type just because I wanted to wear it.
I got many compliments on my wedding day (though most brides are beautiful so, hmm...) and my little cousin now owns my dress. She raved over it so much, I gave it to her.
Yesterday, YBF posted this photo of Cynthia from the Real Housewives of Atlanta in her wedding gown. All I can say is, WOW! I love this dress. LOVE IT!
I love that she bucked convention with the color. I like the drama of it. It looks luxurious and rich and dramatic. It's gorgeous.
