The Anti-Bride

Do you ever feel like you are the "anti-bride" bride?


While I love the ideas of traditional weddings; I just don't see why I have to lose myself in the process!


Why do I have to wear white? Or purchase my dress in a bridal store....


Oh... just a little mini vent... I feel that I have been labeled the "anti-bride" b/c I don't want what the wedding magazines say I should want or what my friends had....


Do you ever feel like that?

I wanted to wear Red ... even though my mom loved the idea .... she and I both knew it would not have went over well with some ... I still wish I would have done something a little more different

I love black in a wedding so chic!!


I wanted to wear this dress, but it was out of my price range....


I love black in photo 813194-1


Both mom and FI didn't think it was "wedding-ish"


 


"wedding-ish"... what does that mean? who created the rules for a wedding? WAIT whose's getting married?

I'm with allsmiles on that one, its your wedding so what everyone else thinks shouldn't matter!  I'm having a ton of black with red to decorate my wedding (a la Carmen Electra & Dave Navarro style) and a couple of people have made comments about it possibly being "too dark" but I don't care.  I LOVE IT!


BTW -The blue dress looks fabulous on you!

I loved having a black and red wedding! I loved that it was different! I got so many compliments on our colors-  @ first some people thought I was crazy when I said feathers.. and black...and reds...but seeing it all together people were impressed! Let people talk- once they get there are see it all together and how truly beautiful and romantic a dark wedding is- its kind of a slap in the face! :)


Jes- I  love that dress on you-its going to look great in pics- or in the ocean!!

I am SOOOO like that, but people were like "NO", you CAN'T have an all black bouquet, you can't have the FGs carry black baskets and blood red flowers, you can't have the men in converse sneakers, you shouldn't paint your nails dark anything...whoever said the color black was evil???? WAAAAA!!! Anyway, instead of fighting with everyone, I just gave in...not very Rock n Roll, now is it???!!! LOL!

I feel like I fall in between. While I like bridal mags and go for trendy stuff, I hate traditional stuff.


My dress is not white... but it's also pretty safe being light gold.


But that's okay because that's what I like!

This must be one of the best groups ive been looking for. Myself and my fiance are so alike when it comes to ideas for the wedding...makes it so much easier to plan...hehe...we love Rock n Roll music. And we like to be different, having the non traditional wedding. My mom also wasnt happy with black brides maid dresses...black ribbons and dark accents. But I see the black as chic, modern, classy and elegant. And with the lace, damask and red it adds a rock/glam feel. All our music we tried be different with. Im even walking down the isle to November Rain by Guns n Roses. Ladies hope to hear more rock n roll ideas!!!!!!!!! ROCK ON!

I'm wearing a blue dress and blue sequined Converse All stars.  I've never wanted a big white dress or the big white wedding.  I may have a blue and white bouquet or all black.

Yes I do feel like the anti-bride sometimes. My family and my fiances family are kinda closed minded to non traditional wedding things. For instance my FMIL has a problem with my wedding color decisions which are white, black and red. She thinks that having black bridesmaids dresses is the most morbid thing ever. She actually said something to me about changing the colors and said that her sons wedding shouldn't look like a wake and blah blah blah. I don't understand how having black bridesmaid dresses is morbid or wake-like but ok. They're having red sashes so it's not all black!! lol When she found out I was going to be getting a white dress with black accents she had a hissy about that too. Our reception hall is red and is very dark and she's got a problem with that too. I told her if she starts paying for stuff she can start giving us her opinion. lmao Makes no sense to me why she doesn't like the hall because it's a very nice hall and has this awesome old hollywood feel going on. Maybe it's cause it's above a bar who knows. lmao That's part of it's appeal for me though. :) lol It's our wedding, no one elses, and we'll do what makes us happy. My sisters think it's weird that i'm not getting a traditional white only dress and am planning on playing metal and punk during the reception. I don't understand why people are so close minded. People are silly. :) 


kasiamos that song is beautiful. I love it and it will be perfect to walk down the aisle to. I was thinking about metallicas song Nothing else matters (the version with the san francisco symphony orchestra) but am still unsure. It's still a possiblility.
