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 …

Excellent hub Princessa and I am sure many brides to be will find this advice helpful. I really like your new avatar picture by the way.

Dorothy is a new version of the 1950s-style Blanche dress (above), and features a fuller, longer skirt for a soft romantic look. A really versatile dress, Dorothy can work in so many different ways: I’ve shown it here in ivory silk and corded lace, using the beautiful border for the sleeve and hem. Buttercup has long, dark blonde hair which has no bangs or fringe and is parted in the middle. For her red riding habit or gown, she has loose waves in hair long hair (looks like it was crimped) and the side strands are taken back away from her face and tied at the back with a simple hair knot. The styling looks very similar to this costume wig which you could tie back a few side strands on. If you have long blonde hair then you could style it yourself or look for a good quality plain hair wig and style it yourself. Thin/Tall/Slim women can choose an empire or A-line dress to give the observer a …

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 …

Would you be brave enough to cut up your wedding dress and transform it into a little more wearable? Wedding dresses are becoming more extravagant (including the actual event!) and unfortunately, put away never to be worn again, unless if you are going to dye it and wear it at another formal do (very unlikely in my case). In Boardwalk Empire literally every male character can be seen wearing a three piece suit at one time or another. If you’re a man, this will be the very foundation of your attire. However, not all three piece suits are created equally. For instance, if you’re going for a wealthy, no-class gangster, you’ll want plenty of bright, garish colors and those pinstripes I mentioned earlier (these are for the street guys who have stumbled into wealth, without ever having learned what tastefulness is). For sheer class, you’ll want to take your cues from Arnold Rothstein’s wardrobe, which is more elegant without ever being overly showy. For a plain old street hood, keep things simple with solid colors — browns and blacks — and very little of the accessories that I’ll be mentioning later on, further down this list. Style—Is it fashion-forward but not too trendy? You want this piece to last for years. Limo – service for a night. Leave this gift open ended. The bride can use the service whenever she desires too? If you’re lucky, she will use it on girls day out. For shorter women, you will go for the more lengthening dress silhouettes, like the sheaths, empires, mermaids, and A-lines. Long slim skirts will make your legs look a lot longer. Choose a waistline that lengthens your torso like a dropped waist, princess seaming, or even an asymmetrical look. They had spent long periods apart because of his job, and she says writing letters discussing their future together had helped with the separation. I had ordered it custom made and it fits like a glove except for the bust area which is a little big (it could’ve been my fault as I may have measured a bit on the bigger side)…but this is an easy alteration and I’m not concerned. I am not a huge fan of the flower on the back but it can easily be removed (I wasn’t fond of it in the advertised photo either but figured I could remove it if needed). The buttons are a bit loose but that is nothing a little thread and a needle can’t fix if you want reinforcements (they’re only decorative so they won’t be pulling or anything).

Many biker weddings are outside in a park; so outdoor woodsy area décor works well. Look at rustic country themes. You can use some of these ideas and adapt them to a biker wedding theme. Note how the accessories like hats, shoes, handbags and purses are matched to the outfits or designed to complement other accessories. Note also the wide variety of bright colors. Hemlines were at knee level in …

I explained to him that wedding details are very important to women and most women spend quite a bit of time and energy thinking about what they’d like for their big day. It’s safe to say that my wife thought of our wedding details well before she even met me! If you are not used to wearing a corset, then shrinking your waist two inches is acceptable but squeezing yourself to make your waist six inches smaller can end up with you bruising or even fainting during the wedding ceremony. Did anyone else find Gisele Bundchen’s dress a bit too risque, even for a supermodel? The tabloid shots I saw (at the supermarket checkout – not that I purchased them!) emphasized the side view, which gave a lovely peek into her cheeks. Here’s one that shows the front. The flapper vintage bridal wear of the twenties is a hot trend for wedding gown seekers of the 21st century. Do you happen to have any updates on boots for the 2012-2013 season?

This style could be worn for an outdoor informal wedding as well as an indoor or more formal wedding. If your having a small personal wedding but still want to dress up a bit, this would be the perfect choice. However, options of headwear don’t end there. If you plan on having a party outdoors in warmer weather, or kicking back at the beach, or even lounging around on your yacht, a straw boater hat is good for both upper and middle class fellas. It’s inexpensive, comfortable, casual, cool (both literally and figuratively), and looks great. However, if you go with the boater hat, be aware that this isn’t a headwear for regular, everyday streetwear and criminal activity, and would best be worn with light colors.wedding dresses

I first of all wanted to say thank you for getting reviews from real customers of these online dress retailers. It definitely helped me in my decision to buy online. Here is my review for a dress I just received from and photos of it as well (the last photo is the advertised dress)! Please note that the pink dot you may see in some of the photos is from the lense on my phone’s camera, not the dress. I asked them today to share some deets about their wedding gowns and how they chose them! S thinks her ex-partner panicked” at the prospect of the wedding, but didn’t talk to her about it. Fantastically useful information – I had an orchid bouquet and it took a lot of punishment, as you say, tough as old nails. At my later church wedding I had carnations – horrible – horrible horrible. Glad to see they didn’t make your list. Improper care after the wedding can result in permanent staining and deterioration of your bridal gown. I actually participated in a Bellydance Wedding, believe it or not -something like Elizabeth Hurley’s, pictured here. Phil bought the dress for a girlfriend as a surprise a few years into their relationship. Colette is the perfect cover-up for a vintage wedding dress. This chic bolero in delicate lace slips over your vintage dress to prettily cover any exposed skin for the more formal part of the day. It can then be shrugged off later to show off your glamorous dress. I was convinced to try on this Carolina Herrera since they were having a trunk show and it turned out to be my very favourite dress. It was 10% off (because trunk show) and I was very, very tempted since it gave me that skinny, UES, ice queen vibe that I’ve always found highly attractive. The best example I could give here is using a shell type design on the bass area. If you have a well-formed and good size breast, better not go for this design. While the shell type highlights the bass area, it will actually conceal the contour of your breast. That means, instead of revealing your beauty, you are actually hiding it.

Even if you going to use the tent only if it rains, you still need to size it out and price it out ahead of time—two days before your event is not the time to worry about it. Tribes in Africa perform their wedding celebrations over days. The bride wears the colour of her villages tribe. Often many couples marry at the same time. Absolutely stunning Hub!..and the photographs are fabulous! Makes me want to get married all over again! A well co-ordinated outfit was the hallmark of fashionable women. Hats, dresses, hosiery, shoes and handbags all complemented or contrasted with each other to form the height of 1920’s fashion for women. What a lovely hub! I’m so glad I found this. I really enjoyed looking at these dresses. …

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!!

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 …
