Great hub and photos! My husband and I have been married for 24 years this May.

I am so happy for you and your wife; I love hearing about happy marriages. Once you have your wedding gown back, all clean and archivally boxed, you have some responsibilities of your own to ensure its longevity. First of all, the box should be stored flat, never standing up on one end. The perfect place to keep your wedding gown box is under a bed. The worst place to keep it is in the attic, where the high heat can wreak havoc on fine silks, no matter how perfectly they have been preserved. Your basement is nearly as bad, as the damp conditions can promote the growth of mold, mildew, and possibly even an invasion of critters. And don’t even think of storing the box in a garage, with all of its noxious fumes! Your wedding gown will be happiest in the same conditions as you are: a comfortable room temperature without any extreme fluctuations and a medium level of humidity. Besides, you will be much more likely to remember to periodically open the box and check out the condition of your wedding dress if it is somewhere convenient, rather than buried under boxes of old textbooks in the attic. Don’t eliminate a dress you like, without trying it on. That way you’ll have no regrets.

I have no objection to a bit of cleavage, and think it is nice and fine and perfectly proper. This dress, well, she may as well not be wearing a top at all. After the reception the bride and groom a glass of milk and banana (symbolizing prosperity and fertility) and leave for their honeymoon.

The shawl can be kept on loosely wrapped around the arms for the photos, showing only back and shoulders. For clarification, the cost of getting married in your own parish is usually small and it is to cover the costs of marriage preparation, not the use of the church during the actual ceremony. I did get married at a parish other than my own and had to pay to use it. If you must wear white, wear adornments in other colors. Prints with white as the background will also be welcome. Also be careful with the design of your white dress. If it looks like a bridal gown, it is not wedding guest appropriate. Based on Butterick pattern 5731 I have calculated the costs of a facsimile gown made in affordable bridal fabrics from a source such as The fabric costs alone will be close to $90 for a size 10 gown, as shown on the table below. Please expect between two and three fittings, and allow around three months from start to finish. This also allows time for fitting after the dress arrives. Gifting your guests with favors. Do Bikers really do that?! If you can, yes your guests will appreciate if it is something they can truly use.

Never look for a wedding dress no more that 6 months prior to the wedding date. I tell you why. The further away, the more expensive the dress will cost. Lets say the wedding is in June. You wouldn’t want to purchase the dress say in September (the previous year) because that month is popular for weddings as well. September starts the fall collection so naturally every dress is at regular sales price. The average price for a dress during the fall season ranges between $1,000.00-$3,000.00. The best time to purchase a wedding dress is in January because the stores has to get rid of the last year’s inventory. You will see a tone of reductions in January. illusion dress has a sophisticated look that can be worn in and out of the office. And there’s probably no more important detail to the bride than her wedding dress. Some brides have the option of wearing a dress inherited from their mother or grandmother. These dresses are often very beautiful with high-quality materials – they don’t make them like that anymore! But because the dress hasn’t been properly stored it’s not in the best shape. Thankfully, there are a few things you can do to restore an old wedding dress and have it looking as good as new. I like retro dresses and clothes in general but when it comes to lingerie then it’s vintage all the way for me!! I particularly like how I feel when I wear it under my normal office clothes. If you’re interested, I’d love to know your views on my vintage lingerie lens. Thank you, I like finding voids in the wedding industry and filling them with both old and new traditions and ideas on special themes.

Of course lilies or any other type of flower can also be pinned to the dress using tiny sewing pins! Just keep in mind if your wedding dress is satin, there will be teeny tiny holes.

Color matters when we talk about parties or those who are attending a wedding ceremony. For brides, white still stands to be the rule. Some brides, which I say are a bit radical, opted to use the opposite – black. Other brides choose to accent their bridal gown to manifest their chosen dresses
