Da dum da da, da dum da da – ah yes, that one life-changing, stupidly expensive day. The wedding day. Many of us might daydream on a crowded subway about our wedding day, drool escaping from the sides of our mouths, eyes slightly glazed over…you get the picture. During said daydream, perhaps you’re deciding on the floral arrangements, ice sculptures, the reception, the DJ, the four-piece string quartet, or perhaps you’re sampling the flavors for the 25-tier cake you REALLY think you NEED. But there is one constant little thought bubble bouncing around in there…
For the brides to be, most of the stress isn’t over the venue, nor the guest list (let’s be real if your cultural background isn’t 100% American, that list is definitely going to end up being organized by your ever-willing aunties) but over THE DRESS. A form-fitting sheath perhaps? A full-skirted ballgown to make you the Disney princess you always dreamt of being? Perhaps a halter neck? Maybe even a sweetheart neckline with a bodice encrusted with Swarovski crystals? Alas, our list does not cover the conventional, the chic, the elegant, nor the demure. Pretty sure the staff at Kleinfeld would be peeking through their fingers at the horror show which awaits us. You’re probably thinking; it can’t be THAT bad. Oh, but believe us, it is.
Talk About Anime-ted on the Big Day!
We’re sure that the illustrators of anime would be rather impressed and flattered at this bold bride’s choice of gown. With a shock of turquoise green hair cropped short, dark eyebrows and a deep plum shade of lipstick, she’s basically a living anime character! With her colorful and artistic tattoos on either arm and a romantic gown fitted at the waist, she sure commands all the attention.
Don’t forget the spattering of neon colored lace over her pretty white gown! To top it off? Grungy Doc Martens! Portland certainly isn’t sleepy or boring, and it takes one look at this bride to confirm that! We’re loving it!
