The bride wants to live out her “red carpet fantasies” on her wedding day in a bridal gown that leaves little to the imagination. Your advice?

A redneck wedding?

It is the Bride’s big day. If she has her heart set on wearing a revealing gown then that is what she should wear.

Just let her have “Her Day”! If you can, post a link to a picture of the dress, so we can see what you’re talking about!

Best Wedding Wishes!

what is the skin vs dress ratio?

Your relationship to the bride? Mom or very close friend could gently steer the bride toward a more flattering choice. Page through wedding magazines and point out styles that would flatter her.

In the end, though, it’s all about what she wants. Unfortunately, I am not sure when the wedding became an opportunity for total; self-indulgence, but it seems to be happening more and more.

syz~ lmao its like a hooters wedding

bulbatron9's avatar

@syz Oh my GOD! You know that those girl’s fathers had to be beet red while giving them away!

The groom looked a little embarrassed himself

Well, saves on the trousseau. No need with either of those dresses to buy something special and sexy for the honeymoon.

Advice? Post pics, of course.

What’s your relationship to the bride? Will she listen to your advice?

At least the second dress does not have the panty line issue that the first one does.

DeezerQueue's avatar

Seriously now, has she asked you what you think?

gorillapaws's avatar

@syz those were too funny. I wonder if those brides lost a bet to one of their girlfriends or something…

@Whattodo if your fiance has anything in mind like either of those 2 dresses, you might have bigger things to worry about then the dress (like spending the rest of your life with someone who lacks the ability to think rationally).

What level of revealing are we talking about? Is it a Halle barry imitation flower dress like this?

Or going overly leggy like this?

Or something going both directions like this?.

marinelife's avatar

@delirium Shudder! Is one of those worse than another? Is this what comes of the Bridezilla phenomenon? Or is this the influence of pornography on bridal fashion? (See other thread.)

delirium's avatar

I don’t know, it scares me though! I don’t understand how corperate weddings have become, too.
I can tell you here and now that my wedding dress will most likely be a full dress version of this with less pink. And that the rings will be made by artisans.

marinelife's avatar

Much more interesting and original and arty!

delirium's avatar

I’m an art geek, its in the job description.

gorillapaws's avatar

@delirium does your boyfriend know you’ve already picked out your wedding dress?

delirium's avatar




Does it count if the groom is totally variable in my vision?

gorillapaws's avatar

it helps, but I know I’d be nervous if I was your significant other… ;)

I just hope you don’t have your shoes picked out too….

delirium's avatar

I’m planning not to wear shoes, actually. ;)

Hahahaha, sure you’d be nervous, but you’d be lucky!
