« The Attendants | Main | Bridal Registry »



I have always held muted feminist viewpoints, and these ideals certainly came out when it came time to dress myself as the bride. I spent a great deal of time thinking about my possibilities, considering everything from a gem-tone evening gown to a white pantsuit. In the end, though, persuaded by family, I chose a very simple ivory sheath gown- a design not far from a dress I would choose for any special occasion, but in lovely ivory satin. (I broke away from the ballroom Princess swallowed-by-tulle look.) I also got creative with my jewelry, refusing to wear the juvenile Princess tiara and virginal veil. Instead, I chose bold, colorful jewelry to accent my simple gown.
