No, I don’t mean that I have multiple wedding dresses to wear throughout the evening. I mean that as a bride, I wear a lot of different dresses for a lot of different occasions.
When I was younger I was not a dress kind of girl. I actually wore jeans to church one Easter Sunday! But I think I grew out of that, you still rarely find me wearing a dress more than once every couple of months.
So why do I have a lot of dresses?
There is the dress from my shower. It wasn’t what I had imagined, but it looked sweet and bridal to me.

That's what it looked like at my bridal shower
I work in an office where three of us are preparing for weddings. J is planning an offbeat kind of wedding, R is planning a very simple wedding for her 2nd marriage, and I’m planning something that will resemble a traditional wedding. We have lots of fun wedding conversations!
J told us the other day that she is wearing a green dress (the color). I started thinking about hold awesome she would looking in green and remembered that white, ivory, and champagne are not everyone’s colors.
This bride designed her dress and had it made by a friend:

I know that in some cultures red is a traditional wedding color and I’ve seen some amazing red wedding dresses in bridal magazines.
