Yes, the first time I got married, I wore a white dress with a mid length veil.
I also wore a blue garter which I think many brides wear.

The second time I bought a really nice outfit that was not white -it was by my favourite designer -Sally Browne and was a fabulous dress -the second time we got married at our home which we had built together...

Didnt help me much though as that did not last either!!
by Finy
I loved Sally Browne designs. :)

I wore an off-white dress, no veil and nothing blue. Traditional is not what I was going for.

I designed my own dress as I did not want any lace at all! It was a fabulous off the shoulder puffed sleeves,cream silk over coral pink lining so when the sun hit it ,it looked like a stunning shell!!! I wore a circlet of roses and tiny orchids in my hair which matched the flowers in my bouquet. I wore pearls with a blue sapphire clasp.And to top it off I did have a real sixpence in my shoe!!
Sounds wonderful, good for you doing all that hard work!
:) very special.
by jonaja
Thank hyou for your kind comment.I must say it truly IS a gorgeous dress,and I have kept it all these years with the circlet I wore in my hair!!! Despite the marriage lasting only 11 years,I have no regrets at all,as I have the very best son any mother could ask for! Without my marriage I would not have him!

It would be lovely to see a pic Jules. :)
by Vee
That does sound beautiful.
Wow!! I am really humbled by all of your comments!! Thank you so much!
If I can find a picture I will,I think they may all be with my son who lives in Melbourne while I am in Nth Qld. I just have none of them around the house any more for the world to see.It was another lifetime for me back then. But I would not change it at all,as plenty of good certainly came from it....

My dress was blue. I didn't want a veil as they seem old fashioned to me and I don't like the symbolism behind them.
Blue? Wow, what did it look like?
by Vee
It was actually pretty much like a typical wedding dress, only pale blue. It had a corset lacing up the back, itty bitty clear swarovski crystals on the front and a hoop skirt. I carried the lace horseshoes my Mum had kept from her wedding and wore her earrings, which was pretty special. :) My mother in law made the bouquet.

Blue was the traditional colour for wedding dresses in the 1800s I think. I just chose it because it was my favourite colour and I'm not much of one for traditions for their own sake. The wedding shop where I bought my dress also made red and black wedding gowns. I think some of my older rellies would have had a fit if I'd chosen one of those!
What a beautiful way to have included your mum and mother-in-law. :)

Yes I did have a white wedding, with a proper veil, and I had something blue.
My dress was Chantilly Lace, and was something out of this world.Rather big, so I had the short veil, so the lace was not covered in any way.
I remember feeling so special that day.
The pic is the very lace I had.
I was a beautiful bride, looked like an angel and YES I wore white with a veil as I was pure and virginal wasn't I? ha ha

Second time I wore an ivory outfit which was appropriate.

Neither marriages lasted......now I just officiate for others!

How did she BREATHE!!!

If I was to have a wedding I'd have a colourful one. I'd get married in a whole rainbow!
With great difficulty, duh! LOL.

Yes I had a proper wedding dress. I had a lovely bird cage veil. I really don't like the traditional veils.
by AJ
Oh I love bird cage veils!

Wedding Dress was off white Thai Silk. Took some of the material to Hong Kong, as was going there anyway, & had shoes & handbag made to match dress.
Yes, did all the 'traditional' things, including a penny in one of my shoes. It was annoying!
Yes I did - my wedding dress was made by a friend who was a Court dressmaker and she did a fabuous job with the gown. Very 60s style - straight silk shift, a cropped to the bust lace top with long sleeves and straight train attached over the dress. It was gorgeous. She told me my measurements at that time were perfect 34"x22"x34" - never managed to attain those again! My hair was up in ringlets with a circular headpiece with short veil attached. My something blue was a sapphire ring my mother gave me.
I wore a white wedding dress. Off the shoulder in lace. Satin skirt with a lace overlay and a hoop skirt. My husbands aunt made it and the bridesmaids dresses. She did a great job. I have kept it and maybe my daughter will wear it. I had a pale blue garter and my grandmothers pearls.
No, no and no. Registry office, looked hideous, destroyed the only two photos I ever had. LOL
