Dream wedding dress

Mr. C proposed on my birthday last year and we've been engaged since then for more than a year with my supposed wedding reception to be held back home in Malaysia next year. Nothing has been set in stone and nothing concrete planned.

I am panicking somewhat 'cos apparently people these days are deranged and super kiasu (hokkien for scared to lose), booking their wedding dinner venues way in advance. For the desired locations and desired timing, couples are booking as early as a year, if not earlier. Well, good on them when they can decide their dates and super bad for me that we are still muddling for our date.

Irregardless of not setting a date, it doesn't mean I can't browse at wedding dresses or anything wedding related. I occasionally browse wedding related magazines and onlines sites. And in our modern today, we are definitely spoilt for choices with just clicks away from our dream wedding. Besides that, we get bombarded by pictures in facebook and blogs of people who have married or their friends and relatives.

Further to that, there are many upcoming budding wedding photographers who are being relevant and smart in bringing their work to us through their sites and their facebook fan page.

Well, boo hoo for me that I see so many dresses I would love to wear for my special day but there is only ONE me. One body and so many bloody dresses to choose from. I seriously would love to have one tailor made but I am guessing that my budget won't allow for it unless I get a job in the next few months.

#1 I love how the chiffon falls with the simple embroidery at the empire line

#2 I don't think this would suit me but it does give the princessy feel and I would prefer my gown to be ivory or champagne as opposed to super white

#3 I like this simple cut that oozes elegance but I would do my hair up in a romantic do instead

#3 I like the lace detail that serves as the sleeves but not many can pull this style off

#4 This is one dress that can be used for pre-wedding photoshoots and for the reception

#5 I think this off shoulder dress shows some and yet maintains a bit of decorum but I would lose the shawl

#6 and I think I am falling in love with lace...

#7 This dress seems more different than the conventional dress.. a little more character

#8 oooooh.... I am a sucker for one sided shoulder dresses these days!

#9 Her poise just makes the dress look good... which reminds me, I better start having better posture.

#10 Simple, easy to walk in and no frills

#11 Did I mention I go gaga at chiffon cos it compliments my "full" figure better

#12 Loving the flow in the skirt

#13 This dress attracts my attention somehow possibly cos it's chiffon and it has this wavy, flowy feel

#14 This dress gives a more Wedding feel, a regal, formal feel and if you have the body for this dress...SUPERB!

#15 I like the polka dots on this dress... makes me feel mischievous with something up my sleeves

#16 Another less formal dress with no trains making it easier to walk in...

#17 Just like the stiffness in the poofy skirt but you got to be anorexic thin to carry this off
and even then, the model looks a little flat chested in this picture

#18 I like the sketch for the back version... if only I can see the real one.

#19 I think if I could, I would love to tailor make my dress to the above sketch,
covered and yet with see through lace to show some skin.
Some girls dream about their wedding dresses since young. Some girls are focused and they know what they want. I just want one that compliments me and I would look super beautiful in irregardless of my shape and size. One that makes all the girls think I am pretty and that they wish they look as gorgeous as me on their very own special day.
So which is your favourite? Tell me which do you think is the best. I can't wait to lose some weight and slide into my dress and feel like a top model.

the model in #10 look pregnant.
me likey 7,4and 13 :)

JC said...

first of all, would like to wish you congratulation! im sure you are looking forward to it!

anyway, I dont know how you really look like or how tall you are.. but to me I think I would prefer #9 & #16, both of them look simple yet elegant!

p.s. I've notice your numbering is slightly wrong, you have 2 #3.

Feather Fansey said...

i prefer 7,14,15 :D
haha! hope to wear it xD

suerrealis said...

1,11 & 15 are my choices! wheee!

goingkookies said...

zhi qing: now that u mentioned it.. hehe maybe the angle...

JC: i am and yet not.. the planning is the setback =p thanks for the numbering notice.. shall amend it to #3a.. hehe

feather fansey: u will when ur time comes =) hopefully u'll be more focus in ur selections then me.. hehe

suerrealis: haha.. same here... i heard 1 and 11 and 15 too.. but how to wear all three??

#14 has a more formal.. like a real wedding kind of dress though.. oozes with elegance IMHO.. hehe

Hey! I'm getting married on the fiteenth of this month, and #3 looks very much like the dress I'll be wearing. I like it very much, but I would warn that it is heavy and the train can be a bit difficult. A seamstress can add a place on the back of the dress to hang the train so that it looks nice but doesn't drag for the rest of the day. I wish you the best of luck for your special day, and if its any consolation I went through a period of about a month where we changed the date every two days. You will get there, and you will find that perfect dress, just take a deep breath, be patient with it, and remember that in the end the wedding is ultimately about the fact that you're marrying the groom:) All the best!

goingkookies said...

Stephanie : Hi there and thanks for the words of encouragement! =) All the best to you on your special day too!! and I am sure you're going to look gorgeous in your dress!

Btw, where did you get your gown from

Anonymous said...

I just love dress 3 and am wondering where I could look on line for one just like it! I think by this comment you will know which one I think you should wear, good luck !!

katrina said...

Does anyone know where to find a dress that looks like dress three or five... i'm leaning more towards five and i need to start planning my wedding....what are the price ranges on those dresses?

goingkookies said...

For example, if you're looking to study Business English, make sure the school you choose has a good reputation for business studies and isn't just a
general English language school. The only problem
why we lack in communication skills as far as English language is concerned is that the
pupils starting with kindergarten are not trained well by their teachers
as regards the macro-skills in teaching a particular language.
