Yes, I agree, if it was obvious who the bride was, it'd be lovely. But this poor ladys mother and sister wore dresses so similar to hers you really couldn't tell. And she was upset with it (understandably). I wonder if any other EHellions remember it. I'll try to find the thread.
I don't think I'd be able to forgive my mother if she did this to me. What a selfish woman! Wasn't there a story here on the EHell forums a while back, and the brides sister and mother both wore formal white gowns to her wedding? I remeber pictures. This story reminds me of that (only worse).
I actually would like to have my bridesmaids in white. Diffrent style from myself, but i saw a wedding where they did that once, and ever since, i've though how beautiful the bride and her BMs looked, all in white, with the bride herself in veil.
I went to a wedding once where all the bridesmaids were in white, and the bride wore a big, dramatic red ballgown! The effect was really stunning, they looked fantastic. Even though she was in red, it was obvious who was the bride.
I admire women who get married in bright colors, but my grandmother broke me of that dream.
(Scary nursery rhyme!)
Is that the one that goes 'Married in blue, he'll always be true', or something like that?
Married in Blue, the lady is true
Married in green, she'll n'er be seen
Married in black, she'll wish herself back
Married in red, soon she's dead (or she'll wish to be dead)
Married in yellow, poor fellow
married in white, angelic sight
married in gold, secret's been told
And for my aunt:
A bride in stripes will recieve the same from her man
A bride in spots wears her own tears
A bride who cries will always be happy
