Aside from being an all around absorbing viewing experience full of gangsters, dames, and all kinds of 1920s goodness, HBO’s Boardwalk Empire showcases just how stylish of an era those gay old days were. And here we’re going to get down to the nitty-gritty of just what makes the men’s style of that time just so swell and dandy. Thanks for sharing your wedding and your culture. I really appreciate your effort to put your wedding tradition in writing and sharing with us. Definitely must pass this along to my mother! I feel that women over 50 just need jeans that are not too baggy; many women at that age need jeans that are fitted, not too skinny or too loose. You can make it ornate by adding elaborate hand beading to your veil which is definitely in line with the flapper couture style. The traditional engagement is carried out by a contracted professional called the Alaga ijoko which translates to traditional master of ceremony. This person could be a member of the bride’s family or a complete stranger. The Alaga Ijoko is always a woman. Her duty is to properly officiate and coordinate the proceedings so that each provision of tradition is strictly adhered too. Awesome color-changing feature! This feature allows you to test out different colors on dresses you love. Certain colors can really make a dress look different in a good or bad way, so I felt this was important. A. The left side of the body signifies love, reasoning that the heart is on the left side. Thanks for the comments oceanuniverse. I don’t think that many people do follow these rules. In areas of Spain like Catalonia for example, follow well-scripted ceremonial traditions. These richly detailed, religious, masses are deeply rooted in their heritage. When it comes to the exchanging of rings, Spanish bridal couples place their wedding rings on their mates right ring finger. As oppose to how it is commonly arranged in America.

I am a fashion stylist, and this is such a huge problem for all of my clients. I don’t know why the manufacturers think everyone is fat with wide calves. There are just as many skinny girls with thin calves. I am so tired of searching for thin-calf boots that I have decided to start my own line tailored just for us pencil-legged fashionistas. My boots will range from 11-14 inches and will feature haute couture style, but will be moderately priced. I’ll let you know when the line launches next year. There’s an art to keeping your hanky in your pocket, though. You can’t simply cram it in there in a big, ugly wad and expect it to look great. For a hanky to become a pocket square” (the official name for your pocket handkerchief) it has to be folded just right; and there are plenty of different stylish folds for you to pick from. To find out how to perfectly fold a hanky into a pocket square you …

With layers of lace and a smattering of sequins, our sweet bridal dresses and cute co-ords are perfect for saying ‘aisle do’. Ensure all eyes are on you with our slick city, trad country, chilled beach and Vegas-ready bridal booty. Awesome – I have skinny legs don’t know the circumfrence, but nice selection and ideas, thanks! I’d love reading you lens, well put together. Hope you have a chance to see my phone card lens! Whether it was Chanel’s black crepe-de-chine sheath, Givenchy’s updated version, or today’s modern dresses, the key to wearing an LBD correctly is by accessorizing. What makes that dress in particular so unique is not only the incredibly long train, but also the almost cartoon-like extent to which it exaggerated almost every traditional feature of a wedding dress. In addition to the train, the shoulders, skirt, and veil were also exaggerated and theatrical. While planning your wedding, it is possible through internet vendors and some ingenuity to create your own Steampunk theme. Many craftspeople on Etsy, specialize in making dresses, suits and accessories for your entire wedding party. They also personalize each order if you have a specific color theme in mind. I’ve also found their custom made work is actually cheaper than many store-bought dresses of similar quality. Having a pair of custom tailored boots has become a major asset. I can now buy a pair of boots that is as close to my calf circumference as I can get. I then take the new boots into the shoe repair store (prior to wearing them) along with my custom tailored boots that fit my calves and ankles. The shoe repair pro tells me whether or not he can take the boot in based on the design. If he canât do it, I simply return the boots. If he can do it (usually takes it in at the zipper) then he uses my custom boot as a pattern.

An option to follow if you are after a unique wedding gown is to buy a vintage wedding dress. Vintage clothing has become very fashionable in the past few years and one of the great advantages of buying vintage clothing is that you can choose an era that suits and complements your body shape, enhancing all your best attributes. Congrats on LOTD! The 1920’s was a very feminine and elegant era for women. Proving a women can be sexy and modest. Don’t have a sleeveless or halterneck dress as this will emphasise your arms even more. There are a couple lines that I feel will give you all the new looks with quality workmanship without going over $1,500.00. I saw a couple episodes of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding and those dresses are ridiculous! I can’t imagine wearing something so big and confining for an intire day. Jessica’s own health wasn’t good. Her chronic fatigue syndrome returned, and she was feeling drained. Thank you Jan. I did spend a lot of time on it once I realized how …

A typical Cambodian wedding is comprised of different ceremonies, lots of music, a dinner banquet, gifts, and, of course, people! Guests are encouraged to not only spectate but also become involved in each ceremony, since an emcee (MC) or host guides everyone along with commentary and instructions (and usually some comedy and teasing too). Music and songs performed on traditional instruments and gongs signal the arrival of the couple to each part of the wedding. There are usually silver or gold trays, along with candles, flowers, fresh fruit, and other decorations that are placed on the floor or a table in front of the bride and groom. The family and wedding guests usually sit on the floor around the couple, finding whatever space they can (since usually these ceremonies are held at the bride’s family residence and space is limited). Showcasing the brides beautiful body lines starting at her neck and extending down to her fingers. But I always wondered? Does the prospective bride really have a burning desire to receive that food processor or that oh so sought after micro. Maxi and midi skirts can be paired with suitable tops to make good formal separates. Some skirts make walking difficult if they are form-fitting. You may wear one that has slits. But the slits should not be too high as to look vulgar. Because we booked an ocean front room, included in our stay was the honeymoon and anniversary package. We had a chilled bottle of champagne and flowers in our room on arrival. A candlelit dinner on the beach was also included (more on that later). The spa at the resort also gave us a massage lesson. We upgraded that lesson to a couples massage over looking the beach (an awesome experience) as well as the use of all the spas facilities, pools and hot tubs. The idea of going to a wedding shop made her feel uncomfortable. That’s more for younger brides,” says the 46-year-old. Her fiance is 10 years younger. Nigerian designers and tailors highlight their creative spins on the customary blouse, wrapper, skirts, dresses, and even head ties. The styles are ingenious, brightly colored, and full of endless variations that bestow nobility to the men folk and flatter the female form. Very much like the Scoop above, the Square Neckline has more crisp lines, with a straight line at the cleavage instead of a Scoop. I made my own bridal gown and had a beautiful velvet coat over it as it was early spring and we had the reception on a ship that we then sailed on for our honeymoon. Love the ideas you have shared. Well done.

To get started with your search, I have gathered many different designs out there that will hopefully narrow your search a bit by choosing the style you would like to try. Good luck and remember to breath! Some of the engagement protocols officiated by the Alaga ijoko are carried out in the absence of the groom. The …

Is your wedding dress packed away or in the back of a closet? Your wedding dress can be made into a beautiful one-of-a-kind quilt that you can display in your home and enjoy! Your dress will be carefully de-constructed, and the fabric will be used to create a lovely quilt (or pillow). I will work with you to custom design your quilt, which can include a copy of the invitation, picture(s). bridesmaids’ dress fabric, the options are endless! Long before the Paris openings had confirmed these tendencies, the House of Nemo, who had been listening in on the Rue de la Paix, cut its delicious piles of pink brocade and silk jersey and its heaps of creamy laces exactly as Paris ordained. Ideal as redneck wedding day wear for the groomsmen, best man, and ushers. Even if you are a Redneck ya still gotta dress up and show some class on your wedding day. So camo up and dress up like you really do mean to marry that gal. Take a hard look at your figure. I assumed I was generally short, but found that my torso is actually average, its just my legs that are really short. Once you know your proportions you can play with shape and color as described in the hub. Above all, spend a little more for clothes that fit, look in the mirror and smile. Are you doing all you can to be the way you want to be? If so, get out there. People who matter don’t mind. People who mind, don’t matter. The decision to proceed with the engagement is actually done on the very day the engagement is scheduled to take place. What usually transpires before the engagement commences is that the groom’s family presents all the gifts as required on the dowry/list. In the Ibo culture, certain women, those who married into the bride’s family are then called upon to examine the gifts. If you want to add a Tiara or Hair Clip to your headpiece you can find them at Hobby Lobby, Amazon or Ebay for a very reasonable price. We paid about $15 on Amazon and it was every bit as nice as the ones we saw in the Bridal shops.

So why risk it? sometimes CHEAP becomes stressful & much more expensive at the end. You could end up with two gowns. Not counting the added stress. The Catholic wedding ceremony follows a very specific format. The processional is first. The groom and best man approach the altar from the side, where the priest is standing. Then the processional begins. The groomsmen and bridesmaids pair up on the way down the aisle. The first pair should be the bridesmaid and groomsmen who will stand at the furthest place out in the line at the altar, and the pairs work in from there. The rehearsal, which usually takes place the day before the wedding, is very helpful in working all of this out! The maid of honor walks …

There are so many options of bridal wear to choose from and many brides -to- be have an idea of what they want in mind but often do not get the exact one. Although it has been a few years since I got married, I would definitely do it all again if I could wear one of these dresses. They are absolutely stunning! On the other hand, if lace is what makes you go weak at the knees, Victoria’s got you covered there too: she wore the Bernadotte family heirloom lace veil It’s been passed down through the family since Queen Sofia and was also worn by her mother, her grandmother, and assorted aunts. First and foremost, do not bleach your wedding dress in an attempt to clean or restore it. Bleach will further weaken the strength of the original fabric, possibly dissolve buttons and other decorative items, and it doesn’t even work. Make sure there are ample restroom facilities – If you’ve ever been to an outdoor wedding with 100 guests and 1 port-a-potty for all to share then you’ll know what I mean. This budget-friendly Breckelles style will set you back a mere 27 bucks. It’s synthetic, of course, but if you’re on a shoestring budget, this could be a winner. Wider tents have higher ceilings, which looks better and does a better job of keeping you cool. A 40′ x 60′ tent will have a higher ceiling than a 30′ x 80′ tent from the same manufacturer. Only use a long, skinny tent if that’s all that will fit in your space. Ideal for showing off your figure and petite brides. These dresses fit close to the body and do not flare out. I have recently purchased my bridal gown through you… We drove five hours to your store and enjoyed every moment spent there, with getting all the information that we needed.

Wow, some of these I wish other people knew when going to a wedding. Great information! Passing this onto others! The cabbage rose fabric bought at the beginning of the decorating project was used for slipcovers for this chair. Note the old fashioned crocheted doily on the back of chair. Do you plan to have children? I kept mine, just in case on of my daughters wanted it. I see no reason to keep it if you have no real reason to though. A wedding is wonderful, but its the marriage that matters. Long pauses of more than an hour, specifically for the cocktail hour, between your ceremony and reception are also very frustrating and confusing. Especially if guests have come from out of town to celebrate with you, they are bored, they aren’t familiar with the area and probably don’t want to go spend money to discover it, and most end up just getting shut into their hotel rooms. I’ve even seen plenty go to the reception early, hang out with the venue crew, sleep, or just make a nuisance of themselves until …

I myself am 5’1 and not your typical size zero for our height. I’m a size 10…So I often have the struggle of not being able to find things that fit right. I’m not fat, I rather I have bigger butt and boobs. Doesn’t make me not petite like the men are trying to say in this feed. Again, small penis syndrome will get to guys heads. Sad. Thank you for the article! For those brides who are less casual than me who might be in the midst of planning a ‘proper’ wedding, choosing a THE dress is part of the magical tradition which accompanies our culture’s ceremony of matrimony. I’d never go so far as to suggest you follow my lead and show up in shorts. That said, on an ecological level, it is not an item you’ll make 30 wears of. If you choose right, your daughter might wear it too, but at the end of the day, it is a souvenir from a beautiful memory which will likely bring you great joy throughout your life. A camo dress shirt and matching pants combo is ideal for a casual dress look. It’s classy elegant with just a hint of the good old Redneck country boy shining through.

Hi K-T-B, I was recently turned onto the concept of Steampunk as well. The first time I heard of it, I thought it was just going to be punk or goth looking (all black with white face make up), I was pleasantly surprised at how wearable it actually is. It’s not too far off from being a usable fashion. And, you’re totally right – its the Victorian charm that makes it so likeable! It is customary for a Catholic bride to carry either a bouquet or a white Bible down the aisle. Devout brides may also wish to carry a rosary. The flowers in the bridal bouquet can be anything that strikes your fancy, of course, but some may wish to carry white lilies, in honor of the Virgin Mary. If you wish to carry a small white Bible instead of a bouquet, it can be decorated with a small spray of flowers, such as delicate lilies-of-the-valley. Using a family Bible will make this tradition even …

The wedding dress worn by Kate Middleton, now Duchess of Cambridge, was certainly stunning. If you are a skilled dressmaker, you might want to make a copy of this dress for yourself. If you are deciding whether this is a project you should undertake, I have tried to do some of the homework for you. The list of materials needed for a dress like this are considerable! When you were creating a list of celebrities did you not even think about black female celebrities like Halle Berry, Vanessa Williams, Cynthia Bailey, Viola Davis, Tina Knowles, Angela Bassett, Iman, and Robin Roberts? No, I guess not! The sample was perfect except for a tricky zipper, which they offered to replace for free. Most places charge about $800 for alterations (!!!!) I need to find a way to get into the bridal business: it sounds more lucrative that the investment banking world I used to occupy. You wanted a bride that was looking her absolute best, and I don’t think Victoria’s ever been more radiant and stylish than she was on her wedding day. You cannot buy an official complete outfit or costume for this character. Very rarely a complete costume from a fan will make it’s way onto eBay which you can then buy but they are truly few and far between and very costly too. Nice history of the Buttericks and how they developed patterns for sewing. The vintage wedding dresses are so lovely. AWWWWWW….beautiful!!! I love it very much! You both made such a cute couple!! hehe…I’m all red every time I see wedding photo. Its just adorable!! My fiancé and I plan to get married over at Cambodia after we save up enough to bring the whole family up there. By the way, the information is very useful! I vote up, useful, awesome, interesting…and of course BEAUTIFUL!! I’ve been watching Say Yes to The Dress for a while now with my girlfriend and sometimes without her. I’m amazed at the patience that these consultants have with these, sometimes difficult, female customers who come in not knowing what they want. It has to be nerve wracking for the consultant.

Beautiful and informative lens. As I was browsing down the page oohing and ahhing at the flowers I reached your poll and had to pause. Way too hard to pick a favorite! 🙂 Roses are my general favorite but gardenias have great sentimental value for me, too, and I love their smell is heavenly. Nice job! There is some controversy around this gown as it looks very similar to a 2008 Alexander McQueen gown but tribute or copy it’s still gorgeous. The soft ruffle skirt and the lace phoenixes are a lovely contrast to each other. It’s dramatic with out being too over-the-top. As far as men’s shoes of the 1920s go, we’re going to have to ditch the idea of sneakers, sandals and crocs (for the record, you should abandon the crocs anyway). And while a swell pair of …

My dress, above, was made from a pure ivory silk with gold fleurs de lys embroidered over it. By the 16th Century, lacemaking had spread beyond its origins in Belgium/Flanders and Italy. As demand grew beyond the Catholic Church, the art of lacemaking was established in virtually every European nation. Despite that, certain centers of lace creation were established, first in Venice, Italy, and the Flanders/Belgium region, and then in France. Lace was desperately craved by the nobility during the Renaissance as a way to showcase their immense wealth, appreciation for beauty, and their sense of style. With amazingly rich colors, African wedding dresses really capture the essence of the big day.
