I’ve asked hubby to take pictures so I can show them to my mother and I’ll blog about them as I loved trying on wedding dresses.
We are married, but we are going to do a Vows Renewal. Although, technically it will be a wedding as we’ve got married twice and we never said any vows. In Romania the couples have to get a civil wedding before going to church. At the civil wedding we were asked if we want to get married and said yes. We’ve got the marriage license and that was it, I wore a white 2 piece suit, not very romantic I may add. The wedding ceremony at the orthodox church is different than the one at a church of England or catholic church… again, no vows. I think we should say a vow, a promise to each other.
We’ve been to the National Wedding Show at the NEC to have a look. I had no idea how much is a wedding cake, how much is an invitation, a cake topper and so on. It was a very productive day, we have some ideas and the most important one is that it will take a lot of time to plan everything exactly as we wanted.
I had a ballgown at our wedding, slightly bigger and all white. Considering that, I wasn’t prepared for the emotions that rushed in when I stepped in front of the mirror. I had no idea I can feel like that after all this years of being married. It made me even more convinced that we should get married again. Hubby was a little emotional too.
My first thought when I saw myself in the mirror was: “Wow, I am beautiful”. I’m not terribly modest, that’s one thing, but this should be any bride’s thought when she is looking in the mirror.
I still ponder if I would like to go for a mermaid dress of a ballgown. I love both of this designs for different reasons. I always felt a wedding dress should look like a ballgown, very traditional of me. At the same time I’m thinking I looked great in the mermaid style. It will be a very hard decision to make.
A few pictures from the catwalk. Enjoy.
