Use remaining paper to fill in and support sleeves and bodice/chest area to prevent crushing from box. Some kits provide a breast form made out of cardboard that you can fold to fit. We chose the night for the vow renewals to coincide with our reservation for dinner on the beach. I got ready first and headed down to the ocean to a predetermined location where we were going to say our vows. My wife took her time to get ready and I recall feeling nervous waiting, just the same as I had 18 years earlier. After what seemed like an eternity, I looked along the walkway at the back of the beach and saw my bride, tanned and barefoot, strolling towards me. It was a moment I will never forget. She had a flower in her hair and looked stunning. We walked down to the beach and stood where we had planned, and spent a few minutes gazing at each other and soaking up the occasion. Then my wife shared her vows with me and my eyes welled up. A vow renewal is so powerful. I then nervously spoke my memorized vows to my sweetheart and we kissed. It was simple, it was perfect and it was memorable. There was no need for a big show. We knew what we were doing and that was what dresses

SO gorgeous. I’d love to do a vintage fur-lined gown. However, I don’t think I’d like a blue gown or a short gown – you’d look more like a Victorian maid than a bride!

Paper Moon: I know! Pissed me off too. I didn’t have a choice, as these pictures are one of a kind. GRrrrrrrrrr! The bodice should be chosen according to the size of your bust. Choose a V-neck or sweetheart bodice for a larger bust. Either a sweetheart or straight bodice will flatter smaller breasts. Lace and chiffon wedding dress was made into a patchwork quilt, with designs, names, date and place of marriage sewn on the quilt. The pillow was made from the bodice of the dress, The bodice and cuffs on the front, and the buttons on the back. Pole tent from the outside, with a subfloor.

Actually she wants a specific meal (whether or not it’s on anyone’s menu), tailored to her personal dietary needs and her taste with just the right amount of seasoning, just as she likes it. It’s an important meal, the most important of her life perhaps (ok, now I’m stretching the metaphor) and she wants it done right by a true professional. Nothing can go wrong.

My pleasure to tell a talented writer the truth about her work. And I appreciate YOU for sharing your talent with HubPages. Recently I had the pleasure of viewing the photography of a traditional (Hindu) Indian wedding taken by a member of a forum to which I belonged. I cannot begin to express how elaborately beautiful that ceremony was, and how skilled the photographer. I have never seen anything like it, and if I wasn’t already fascinated by Indian culture, that would have done it!

What a superb and realistic hub Princessa. Just loved your choice of topic and writing along with beautiful pictures. Would like to read more of your writings.

As hemlines rose and more female leg was visible then stockings assumed greater importance, likewise shoes. When it comes to evening wear, the shorter woman can shine in a full-length gown, but even here the illusion can be improved by the use of the right neckline. A V neck creates an illusion of length and can be very flattering, whereas a square neck emphasizes width and is unlikely to look as good. A high neck can allow a longer visual line, as well, although a little skin at the neckline always looks good, too. Usually cut loose, it’s a shift dress design that drops straight down. It will hint (in an intriguing way) at your shape, rather than display your curves in an open manner. My problem is that my legs are too short, so the biggest part of my calve isn’t that far from the smallest, feel luck that you will at least fit into your perfect boots, cute lens. Take care choosing a dress with lots of frills and flounce. While this dress suits some figures, they are far and few between. David V: You’re welcome. Glad you liked the post. I’m with you. I wouldn’t mind being a guest at a wedding where the bride wore one of these, but not my wife. Thanks for the comment! It isn’t as easy as it sounds as sometimes women who are exptremely thin tend to look shapeless in anything that they wear.
