While laws might restrict certain types of marriage, fortunately, there’s no restriction on the type of wedding dress you choose to wear on your big day.

    Can you say HATED IT!!! SERIOUSLY – these are supposed to be alternatives to wearing a wedding dress?!! I’m ALL for being different (to a degree), but I wouldn’t be caught dead in one of these get-ups…..well maybe on Halloween!! Come on – you couldn’t have done better than 6 ‘outfits’ that scream “look what I made in home ec” or “look what I found at the flea market”?!!
