I suppose, but my point is that this dress/look doesn't especially complement her style.

I'm a fat chick, and what I wanted was a deep v neck wrap-style dress in cream, preferably not BEDAZZLED AS FUCK BECAUSE THATS FUCKING TACKY. When they kept pulling were stark white beaded gowns with cap sleeves, which look super shitty on fat chicks. I triedto tell them this and they kept pushing and pushing and pushing and I was already so stressed with the planning and everything and lack of sleep that I agreed to a dress that in the light of the store looked somewhat cream coloured, and they made sure to tell me this was literally all they had. When I got home I was horrified to see it was actually white, and the beading was silver [not iridescent green like they said] and didnt match my wedding colours or jewelry at all. Even when I got the new dress, they botched the hemming at the neckline and made it dowdy. I plan to have it released so I can use it for formal events and when I renew my vows. The whole thing was a nightmare.

Never shop David's Bridal. Not even once. Go to a store that sells Quince dresses.

Yeah these people aren't models so they look really shitty standing still. Probably looks much better in motion.

You can feel beautiful all you want. Most people getting married have not tried on wedding dresses and they are a whole different beast than other dresses.After going shopping with my sister who was hellbent on a particular style and trying every single one of them on, we had her try something else and it just looked so much better on her. Regardless she bought the one she wanted, and was happy, but now she cringes when she looks at her wedding photos.

I mean yeah she didn't think about it that day, but she thinks about it whenever she sees a picture. Don't pick something you're hell bent on and that you ~*love*~ but looks like shit on you.

not that anon but I've gone into places where they look at you like pic related and think "wow, this will be GREAT on them!" and are extremely pushy about you trying it on/getting it.

I like her hair, but they turned her into like a rockabilly-looking chick when that clearly wasn't her style before. Plus that dress is really poorly fitted, ugly / tacky to begin with, and those paisleys and the design below them look like anatomical designs.

i like her hair, but ffs what is with that dress? Also they should have put her in one of those collar necklaces to hide that awful tat.

It's like how if you order your food extra spicy at an Indian restaurant, they'll still send you medium spicy food because they know the dumb little Caucasian is going to take one bite and go "this is too spicy!" And send it back to be remade, wasting food. Because that's what happens.

Yeah I get the feeling I'll be footing the bill mostly when I get married. I've been dating this guy steadily for 3 years and we've seriously talked about getting married lately. Not for a while, 3 years more probably. He wants to be able to put a down payment on a house and all that. My parents don't talk to me at all about the option of marriage. From what I hear about my mom she complains about not having money all the god damn time for stuff. Always complaining about the expense of the mortgage. BFs parents said they saved up 10k for us, but we'd rather that go to a house rather than a wedding.

I dunno. Parts of me want to have a really elaborate traditional wedding with a giant dress and 200 guests and all that fun shit. But the sad reality is gunna be that we go on vacation to vegas and get married with me in my $200 davids bridal dress.

My issue is it would never be perfect if I made it. Because I'm always improving I would want to re-do bits again and again to make it perfect.

Went swimming at a waterpark where they have that fake sand ground that is basically sandpaper. One girl pushes me over on a sloped bit of ground and I got up, found a few scratches on my front and thought it was okay.
Turns out all the skin on my back/back of legs/back of arms was gone and bleeding like fuck. I didn't realise for a few minutes until people started pointing and whispering and I got paranoid as fuck. Because I was in shock I didn't feel a thing.

And then whenever I wore something showing my back, more pointing and whispering at the mass of ripped up skin and scars.

Why are courthouse weddings so frowned upon in the States? Here it's quite normal, some people would rather invest in a house or a big honeymoon trip than a one-and-done party. Besides, you can always have a second wedding (to the same person, I mean) bash when you renew your vows.

I totally 1000% get wanting good wedding photos but some people just don't want a big wedding and that's fine.

I went to David's bridal for the sole purpose of trying on different styles. I had my heart set on a mermaid/trumpet, but when I went to this high end boutique they put me in this $3000 ball gown that I fell in love with. I held off, ate lunch, and realized that even though the dress was gorgeous, I just couldn't picture myself walking down the aisle in it.
I went to David's Bridal for the sole reason of trying on every style I could think of, but ended up falling in love with a dress. The location I was at didn't have that dress and was so ridiculous about trying to order it in my size because they were discontinuing it to produce pretty much the exact same dress for twice the price. Drove from northern va to Richmond to a place that WAS helpful and ended up buying the dress there.

My $0.02 on the cheap wedding thing: my wedding is all about celebrating with friends and family. I'm okay with spending more on an open bar, dj, etc, that will make things more fun.
BUT a lot of people have decided to have small weddings or courthouse weddings when they first get married because us millenials can't even afford a fucking apartment, much less a $20,000 wedding. But then they can have extravagant recommitment ceremonies later when they can actually afford it

They are fun to attend but man do the parents and family get involved cause unnecessary stress. It can be a blessing to be less traditional.

I was a very easy going bride. I really didnt care what the center pieces looked like, let my bridesmaids wear whatever dress they wanted as long as it was the same color even purchased them so they didnt have to spend money, made my own invitations to save cash etc but with big cultures/traditions comes really strange demands.

Ever decision I made to save money/because I thought it would be practical was met with lots of resistance. I didnt mind being accommodating but sometimes the demands were just so odd. There were fights ppl started about who was in the wedding party. My husbands uncle got mad his son wasnt in the wedding party a week before the wedding. No one had told me this was an issue or that the cousin felt this way for the full year I was planning the wedding but suddenly a week before BOOM how dare you shame me.

I could go on. There was demands about music, how I was insulting my cousin for not wearing a tiara she could make. (I didnt even say no. I just said I didn't know she made them and wasnt sure how I planned on wearing my hair yet.) I know ppl like to rag on brides about being bitches and making it about them but man can some family and attendees be just as bad. Sorry about the tangent rant.

>> No.8477869

I would, but in small details. If I could live out my fantasy I would have a sailor moon/lolita fusion. I've always wanted bridesmaids dressed up in classic or verrrry toned down sweet (hey at least if you spend $200 on a lolita dress, you can resell it on lacemarket.) Light lilac colors.

The decor for the wedding would be SM inspired. moons, stars maybe little silhouettes of endymion and neo queen serenity near the head table/hanging from the backs of our seats. Nothing too overtly nerdy but just little influences.

I would basically want it to look like it has nothing to do with my interests, but absolutely does.

I wouldn't mind some lolita design elements hidden in what I wear and the decor, but I wouldn't make it obvious. Then again I'm classic so it'll probably end up looking ambiguously "romantic" and "period" anyways. Though my no-budget-limits dream wedding dress would be a robe a l'anglaise in ivory and gold.

I was unable to do a consultation because I was literally the only one doing any appointments and that one slipped through my fingers in favor of other things. Didn't think about the fact that I hadn't gotten my hair cut in almost a year, and all I wanted was straight bangs.

It's like how that same show plays up certain legitimate kinks as 'weird,' and not even in a legitimate manner, just like "lel look at the weird kid let's go make fun of him!"

My husband and I were really clear from the get go that we didn't want our hobbies to be in the spot light for our wedding. We wanted it to be beautiful and classic so the pictures wouldn't be an embarrassment to look at years later.

That being said, I had a lot of fun putting subtle nerdy touches here and there. Our cake toppers were Totoros, and I incorporated a lot of instrumental music from videogames and anime into the ceremony and reception.

I walked down the aisle to a violin and piano cover of Zelda's Lullaby, our procession after the ceremony was a strings version of Kiss, Kiss Fall in Love haha! The big flourishes in it really made it fun and happy!

The best part about it all though, was that the music was special to me and my husband. To everyone else it just sounded pretty, but it had meaning to us, which is what everyone rags on and on about when it comes to planning a wedding.

Jesus those spaghetti straps are just not right. It's like they picked the dress out before they even saw her, it doesn't suit her at all.

I'd have gone for a bardot neckline to take the emphasis off of her upper arms and enhance her cleavage. Her stomach would probably look better in an a-line, too. They could have kept the pastel pink shade, to be honest, at least that would have made her tattoo stick out less.

Something about that dress just looks off to me, I think it might be the neckline. Sleeves can look amazing specially with a bardot neckline like pic related.

Same anon you're talking to, and yeah exactly my experience. Except this girl was more like a best friend to me in high school and we drifted apart and had fights over the years because her priorities were/are out of whack. The story is kind of TL;DR, but I think it's a great cautionary story.

She went for the "nerdy" wedding even though neither her nor her fiance could afford anything with their fast food jobs, and child to take care of, with another on the way.
They ordered cheap LoZ "wedding" rings from Etsy, and then set up a GoFundMe to beg people to pay for a new wedding dress when her pregnancy made her outgrow her old one. She claimed she couldn't return her old dress or exchange it (it was an outright lie in an attempt to get a brand new dress since the old one she bought on clearance at a bridal chain). All but three people didn't bite so she wound up with what looked more like a used beach or prom dress. It was ugly and unflattering.

Her mom recorded the "ceremony" which just involved six close friends and her dad walking her down to this lakefront beach while the song of time played statically on a portable stereo in the background. The front wasn't even pretty, it was already a grey day. The beach was littered with pebbles, driftwood, and dead fish.
And to top it off the audio on the recording was so bad that I couldn't even hear their vows, just her obese mother's heavy breathing. No professional recording or pictures of her wedding exist because they didn't have the money to hire anyone.

Never heard talk of a reception for her guests, she just went to a Hard Rock Cafe afterward and their wedding cake was their peach cobbler.

She really escalated the wedding plans especially after she found out she was pregnant. She didn't lock down the man who fathered her first child and he got away quick.

You'd have to try to get a wedding that bad. I guarantee this girl did not dump more than $400 for that shitshow, even with the rings and dress included.

For hourglass shape, the important thing is to make sure you show off your waist. It doesn't need to be a mermaid dress, you can totally rock a fifties-style dress. Just make sure the dress comes in at your waist, plus one or two inches lower, before it poofs out again, so everyone can get a good look at how small your waist is. Otherwise you'll end up looking thick due to your boobs and hips being so much wider.

I'm not clear if you want to minimise big boobs. The obvious one is to get a good bra -- saggy big boobs somehow look cheesier than perky big boobs.

If you do want to minimise big boobs, choose designs that divide up your torso, but avoid frills and ruffles on the bust area. For lolita, it's usually as easy as the blouse being one colour, the jsk being another colour, and then there's usually some chest decoration like a lace panel or a ribbon on the underbust that further divides up the chest area.

For a wedding dress, a strapless design is a pretty good way to divide up the chest area. You can cover up the top with a lace bolero, or choose a design with a sheer portion on top. If you don't want to show cleavage, a high neck halter dress could work as well if you also make sure there's something else that divides the underbust (eg- a ribbon on the underbust, or a having one area be textured (lace or beading) and the other area be plain and smooth).

Whatever you do, don't choose a bodice that covers from your neck to your waist, it merges your boobs with your shoulders into one giant blob of flesh.

Why are you so threatened by the idea that some people don't believe marriage to be important? The concept of marriage has changed drastically over time. It's not as sacred as you think it is. A paper carries no meaning to me. I don't need a piece of paper to add value to my relationship and I don't think the government should be involved.
Personally, I wonder if there won't be a cultural shift like we're seeing with having kids. In the past, it was pretty much assumed that you'd have kids unless you were some kind of spinster or infertile. Now in the past 10 years, there's been a great increase in the amount of information about what having kids is really like - turns out it's not so great for everyone. There's more support for people who don't want to start a family. So now far fewer people are having children, when in the past, those people would have had them anyway. It was culturally expected of them.
I see a similar issue with marriage. I'm always confused when I see someone who seems pretty reasonable and childfree getting married. Some people may like it but I believe with others, there's an expectation. I get a much more shocking response when I tell people I don't want to be married than when I say I don't want to have kids. When people find out how long my SO and I have been together, they are shocked and think something's wrong. In this very thread there's been a very potent reaction to the idea that marriage isn't valuable to some people. For some reason what's a social institution is now more mandatory than a basic biological function.

>> No.8479783

I'd try to incorporate it. My hobbies are a part of who I am and ideally play into how I meet my SO (who knows I might marry someone not into vidya or cosplay, but I doubt it). I already know in my heart that I want a video game themed wedding. However, I don't think it's a bad thing if people opt for a more traditional wedding. I think the most important thing for a wedding is that the couple enjoys it. It's THEIR day.

I really hate this competitive culture that's surrounded weddings due to TV and stuff. It's like everyone's default setting is to judge weddings. I know, because I fall into it a lot and I have to stop myself. I mean sure some of those really bad cosplay weddings and con weddings are really cringe and fun to laugh at, but after a quick laugh I don't feel the need to delve into it more.

If you wanted to incorporate green, I'd suggest having your bridemaids dress in that colour and then you could have a sash or a bouquet that alluded to it. In general, pastels and neutrals are the way to go for weddings. Jewel tones tend to look very dour, and brights are prone to becoming tacky.

I think two skirts, the first huge and OTT, with wide hips on panniers which would be made from lace and taffeta, to be worn for the cerormoy and photos. Then another smaller version with a very small train for the reception.

I think the corset and skirt made from satin, in a nice antique beige colour, with venetian lace in a slightly darker colour. And lots of little beading in rose and white all over the lace.

>CGL bit
I'm so fussy on the lace now because of lolita, that if the dress was made in even slightly less than perfect lace, I'd burn it. And the lace I like is about $50/pm, and I'd need about 9 meters for this. Then all the other work would make this so expensive.

He's actually one of the least controlling and most compromising people I've ever known. We have one of those "you cook, I do the dishes" dynamics. The thing is, when we first got engaged, he didn't really care about the wedding, just the getting married part, and was of the "I don't care if we get married in sweat pants at a courthouse, I just want to get it done" mentality at first. So, when I pitched the venue, he had no objections because he originally didn't give a shit either way. As time went by, his perspective changed, though. Now he wants it to be this super romantic, special thing and he feels like he can't have that same magical feeling at Disney Land. He said it can still be fairy tale themed, though, and the kind of venues he wants to look at certainly are good for it, like the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. It just makes me a little sad because I'm a gigantic faggot who has wanted my wedding to be at Sleeping Beauty Castle since I first found out that was a thing you could do, before I even met him. Honestly, even though I'm not super happy about the venue change, I like that he's now an active part of the planning and wants it to be super special for himself as well as me, instead of his original "idgaf, do whatever you want" attitude.
>Being a spoiled brat is sort of an indication that she's not ready to marry.
I don't see how I'm a spoiled brat who isn't ready to get married, because I'm voicing my frustration that my fiance decided against the venue we agreed on months after planning. Yes, I did indeed ask him, not sure why you're assuming I didn't. He didn't show any hesitation or being remotely against it. I just asked him where he wanted the venue and he had no preference, so asked if he'd be fine with Disney Land and he said yes.

>> No.8484545

I think the "all about the bride" thing comes from the fact that, in my experience, husbands-to-be don't care that much about 90% of the reception choices.
A total list of things my fiancé cared about:
>actual ceremony in a church
>his dad officiating
>a vegetarian dish for him
>no chicken dance
It was to the point where it's almost been frustrating. I ask what he thinks of x or y and his response is "that sounds nice I guess. I'm not good with that stuff"
I'm lucky enough to have a very nice wedding, due to my parents contributing the vast majority of the funds (I think my mother wants to have a party that makes her look good). But at the end of the day, I would have been happy with a courthouse wedding and chilling at a bar afterwards.

Most US grooms genuinely don't care what happens for the wedding as long as it doesn't go over budget. They usually make a couple requests like my husband wanted Megaman cufflinks for his attendants and blue rose boutonnières. Its not usually because the bride is a selfish brat.

That being said I think there's way too many people getting married just for the party and to feel like a princess. Not a lot of people are being married by clergy now and therefore don't have the meetings ahead of time to see if they're actually ready.
