My sister's wedding is only a few months away and, as those of you who know me personally would know, I'm not the most wedding-ish person around. Sometimes when we look at wedding blogs, go to bridal expos or wedding dress/shoe/stuff shopping, I try and imagine myself finding what I want in those same places, and I can't really.
For the record, my sister has excellent taste and knows exactly what she's after -- it's me who is a little weird. Hitherto I've been completely convinced that my engagement ring will be a run-of-the-mill silver piece with a semi-precious rock in it, like turquoise or labradorite.
So, when I saw Bona Drag's Ceremonial Collection, I immediately rethought the whole weddings thing -- this is more like it. High drama, luxe, southern-gothic dresses with only the most enchanted and unusual jewellery. Not to mention champagne velvet... Mara Hoffman... Pamela Love... dried roses... mixed metals... killer nails. Yep and yep.

  1. These dresses are lovely, I think it's often a good thing to be different and embrace yourself. After all comfort is confidence.

    I feel the same though.

  3. Yesssss, I completely agree with the feeling weird about weddings - I think it's just feeling out of place with the norm in the Wedding Industry, which just seems like a huge beast! Soooo much money and such lack of diversity in style. I can't really get excited about the idea of it all, either. But I love this collection from Bona Drag, too! That Mara Hoffman dress with all the beadwork is just gorgeous. They really hit the nail right on the head!
