She had a beautiful, princess-style gown. It got me thinking about the many different choices of wedding gowns that are on offer to us consumers!
I always dreamed of having a great big, white dress until recently when I decided that in fact I think I prefer the idea of a simple, grecian dress.
I have been drooling over some beautiful gowns online and thought I'd share them with you! Searching for wedding dresses made me appreciate just how lucky us ladies are to have such an abundance of choice!
I am about to post quite a number of gowns, but considered that you may enjoy looking at them just as much as I did!
I should mention that I do not actually anticipate getting married any time soon, I just like to explore and appreciate the different styles!
Looking at gowns such as these convince me that you cannot beat a ballgown style wedding dress...
These gowns are from the Justin Alexander collection.
Lazaro Ball Gown Dress from the Spring 2012 collection.
From the San Patrick 2012 collection
I love the lace detail on this dress, as well as the veil style - kind of reminds me of Rapunzel, making it all the more fairytale!
Acanto Silky Tulle Ballgown (Rosa Clara 2012)
Jim Hjelm Bridal Gowns (Number: jh8101)
Vera Wang Strapless Tumbled Tull Caged Gown
(Spring Collection 2012)
Now onto the simple, but elegant grecian styles...
Rosa Clara Hector Silk Voile Gown
Harmoni Silk Voile Draped Strapless Grecian Gown
Given that I love the grecian style so much I thought it made sense to add this bridal dress from 'Mamma Mia'!
I love the simplicity, with the layers and then the gorgeous head piece. Not that the breath-taking scenery, with the iconic Greek music and romantic story have any influence on my admiration!
I've always been intrigued by Indian weddings and their attire, so thought I'd add some images of Indian brides too!
The brides look so magnificent. I just love the rich colours and the henna designs are so intricate!
I think that my love for extravagant attire, along with jewellery makes me appreciate Indian brides all the more - they really do wear some amazing jewellery!
Which wedding dress style do you prefer?
Are there any wedding dresses from any other countries/cultures that you find beautiful and worth sharing?
