Wedding Dresses I Would Rock

I am not a wedding person. I am not a marriage person. I hate the whole tradition of it and the fact that it actually symbolizes the exchange of a woman as property from her father to her husband. And the fact that it is used by religions as some sacred event that gives you permission to do certain things with the person you are involved with. I hate almost everything about the institution of marriage. And I hate the white wedding dress. Most of the people that get married these days are not virgins. Let’s get over it, people (if you are a virgin on your wedding day, then by all means, wear white!). As Miranda said on Sex and the City, “I have a baby! The jig is up.”
Granted, I am not a traditional woman anyway, but if I were to ever get married, you can bet I would do it up in style. Here are some wedding dresses that I absolutely adore.

I’m not sure where I found this, but it makes me happy:

What do you guys think about the white wedding dress? Will you/did you wear white on your wedding day, if you plan on ever having one at all?

    LOVE the rainbow one!

    Mine is green for the upcoming wedding. I suppose it is a nod to my surprise fertility b/c the jig is also up in my case. Or just a nod to the fact I care very little and it is the first one that fit.

    I am painfully anti-wedding, too. It is more for the folks than us. Ugh. My mum loved the dress, so, meh?

    on the off chance i don't die alone (which i am completely convinced will happen), im going to the courthouse and every penny of the wedding budget is going to a wild reception. renting out a taxi company for the night, open bar, sushi bar. glorious.

    I love the brightly colored one. I am pretty uncomfortable with the whole concept of marriage, too, but I love the dresses. I don't mind white, but there are so many options. Why settle?

    I SHALL WEAR A DRESS MADE OF BACON AND ALL SHALL BEHOLD AND APPROVE. Well, really don't think I would constrict myself to white, even If I was a virgin. To much pressure to stay clean. Pun intended.

    white's my favorite color so I would probably wear a white dress with a pop of a bright color (I especially like yellow).

    I totally agree sublime alice: small wedding, huge reception.

    I feel like I'm a total weirdo for this, but I NEVER have thought about any detail of my (never going to happen) wedding.

    I announced that I don't plan or want to get married at my Equality Network meeting (the grassroots organization I'm a part of that fights for gay marriage in California) and they all nearly shit themselves.

    "Why are you a part of this organization if you don't even want to get married?"

    "Just because I don't want to, doesn't mean I don't think I should have the RIGHT to. That and if you guys want to get married, I want you to be able to. Duh. I can't believe you are even asking this question!"

    Whatever, anyway, if for some crazy reason I decided to get hitched… you know it'd be some kind of crazy rock and roll wedding. I'd never wear a dress, and it certainly wouldn't be white (although *technically* some may argue that I'm a virgin since I've never been penetrated by a man… laughable).

    The sheer idea of me getting married makes me uncomfortable though… that kind of commitment makes me feel so uncomfortable. It'd be like signing my life away! NO THANKS.

    up until 3 years ago I had no interest in getting married. Now I want a life partner, companion, and all the legal ties that go along with it. I still haven't thought much about the wedding, but I don't want to spend a ton, and I don't want to turn into Bridezilla (I am crazy ocd perfectionist, so, big risk there). Maybe on the beach in a pretty flowy summer dress. And champagne. And all my jezzies will tell the dood that I am only on loan to him so he better fucking watch it.

    Much as I dislike the traditional idea of marriage, I do hope to get married one day. I would make it what my partner and I think our marriage should be. (nobody will "give me away" and there will be no mention of obeying)

    I might wear white, but it won't be to symbolize virginity. I might wear white to symbolize a new beginning, I might wear green because it looks good on me (and perhaps to symbolize growth and happiness), I might wear red for passion.

    I love the dress in the second picture!

    My dress was off-white. ;)

    Mostly because stark-white looked piss-poor with my super-pale skin and blonde hair.

    But I hated my wedding. Don't get me wrong, it was a wonderful wedding and nothing went wrong…everyone had a good time and all… it's just that the whole wedding is so bride-focused… I wanted to hide the entire day. Or tell everyone to stop looking at me already and get drunk. ;)
