Anything but the Dress

Anything but the Dress

With the economy in its present dreadful state, many brides in the process of planning their wedding have been forced to cut back. While many might be willing to scrimp on centerpieces, flowers and even cake (Grandma and Grandpa can share a piece, right?), most brides would rather have their grooms go barefoot than give up their dream dresses.

"When a woman thinks about her wedding day at age 10, 11, 12, she's not thinking of the honeymoon or the reception, she's thinking about walking down the aisle and all eyes on her. The perception of who you are and what you're about is all related to the dress," Jennifer Hicks of Modern Bride Magazine told the Associated Press.

The article says that many brides have their dream dress in mind long before they even find a spouse. Is this the case for you? Has the design changed over the years? Are you willing to splurge for the dress of your dreams?

HECK YEAH I'll splurge for my dream dress. Sure I'm 10-15 years away from getting married, but it's my spouse and my special day so I want to look the bombdigity in something I love. However, if something I love happens to not cost me so much then that's a plus, but if I have to rob a bank, then so be it.
