Every so often I Google "red wedding dress" to see what pops up. Here are some of my recent finds:
I kinda like the above dress, and it's even made by a regular wedding dress maker (which means made in China by underpaid workers, most likely). Here's what I like about it: the corset bodice, the criss-crossing straps on the bodice (there's no telling how this would look on a bustier girl, but it's so Grecian and lovely), and the skirt, which doesn't look like a wadded up mess. My reservations would be: strapless (which would be a joke on me, frankly), the ruching in the bust area, and the Cinderella ball-gown look of the skirt...part of me kinda likes that, the other part thinks it's just a little too much. I guess I'd have to try something like that on to know if I liked it or not.
I also found this image on a photographer's site (I was bad and didn't keep track of which one):
The red of the gown is lovely, but this is a perfect example of why the Go Fug Yourself writers have anagrammed A Satin into I, Satan. Really, you look at satin in the wrong way and it instantly wrinkles. Very impractical.
I also found this lovely bouquet while I was looking:
Perfect color, and I love the little branches. Beautiful!
And, in a less serious vein, I found some alternative cake options for brides on a budget.
1. Donut cake decked out for a pirate wedding:
2. Hostess cake (Mr. T might actually want this. Hopefully he skips this entry...):
And finally, a symbol of what's wrong with the wedding industry:
