Wear or Die: Wedding dresses

Weddingdresses

Congratulations! You’re getting married! Only maybe you won’t feel too much like celebrating once you take a look at what we have for you to wear… Yes, for your big day, that one time in your life when all eyes will be upon you, you’ll be wearing one of the two dresses shown above – and before you ask, no, you’re not allowed to take the scissors to them and do a little bit of snipping to make them slightly more palatable. You’re stuck with them as they are.

Still, you can’t very well go nude (no, really, you can’t it’s against the rules), and you wouldn’t want to die on your wedding day, so it looks like you’re going to have to make the choice – which one is your wedding dress?

    could I add some of the fluffy ruffles on the second one so that it goes all around? maybe wouldnt look so hideous then..

    Number 2. I would tie the ruffles behind to make a faux bustle. Red shoes. A hat with a veil so no one could see how embarrassed I was at wearing a pillow on my backside.

    Well I believe if there’s ONE day you should not look trashy, it’s your wedding day. And yet so many brides wind up looking like they’re in some kinky costume on their big day. So, in keeping with the costume trend, I’d use the first one and create a victorian theme around the proceedings. My intended in long tails and a bow-tie, the bridesmaids in floorlength gowns with a bustle, and antique flowers EVERYWHERE to distract from the fact that the bride is swimming in them. It would all be very turn of the century, and actually I quite like the idea.

    I’d wear the victoriana tussy-mussy number – mostly because I don’t think it would be fitting for me to wear white on my wedding day!

    I’d go for the Victorian one as well. With the right decor, its impact could be lessened. And I think if you’re going to go “theme-y” on your wedding day, English Garden is a lot better than Stripper. 😛

    Victorian one definitely. I mean, unless I was in Vegas and doing a theme wedding – nah, not even then. There’s no way I’d ever want my grandparents and family seeing that much of me. Ever.

    #2! I LOVE that corset top. I could deal with the side floofy things – stand slightly sideways in pictures, get some killer shoes, show off sexy legs, and wear my hair partly down in loose curls (would cover most of my shoulders)
    I’m actually getting married in a couple months, and I’m wearing a corset bodice, so that was quite appropriate (my skirt’s more fitting with the style though)

    No competition. I’d go for the one on the left. It would actually be fun to be that highly decorated. And although I’m a bit skeptical about a wedding dress being as short as the one on the right, I could deal with that. Those side-floofies, however, I cannot tolerate.
