My wedding dress
I got married on October 10, 2004, and I made my own dress, since most of what's out there just isn't appealing to me. Almost all the dresses I saw in magazines seemed so stiff and formal-- I wanted something simple, soft, drapey. If you visited this page before May 2005, you probably saw my concept picture. Well, I ended up throwing that completely out the window. Once we decided to get married by the beach, the sleeves seemed unnecessary. Then I realized that a train would likely accumulate so much sand and dirt that it would be disgusting after five minutes of walking, so out that went. Finally, I thought hard about which dress shapes I really liked, and decided that I wanted to echo the shape of my rainbow underdress, especially around the back. And thus was my design refined and developed.
