The Ultimate Dream Dress

Let me be the first to say I am so ridiculously sorry for this (several month) delayed post! Excuses excuses, I know, but it's my last year of college and I only just moved into my first apartment. Hopefully I'll be able to squeeze in some posts here and there!

Now I know the subject of wedding lolita dresses has been talked to death over at EGL. It's an important subject for a lot of girls; marriage has been crowbared into their heads since childhood. My rant on how marriage is simply an industry and is in every practical sense useless can wait for later, but it's because of those views on marriage that I never really cared to think about a wedding. Therefore, I have never thought about my perfect wedding dress.

The moment I saw Chemise a la Reve for regular sale at Candy Violet, I knew that if I were to ever get married, it would be in that dress. And despite the lack of pink in my regular wardrobe, it would have to be with the pink sash. This dress just appeals to all of my tastes; three quarter sleeves, a healthy amount of ruffles, delicate materials, historical value, similarity to things I've seen Keira Knightley wear, and an overall dreamy appearance? I would be all over that in a heartbeat if I had the money. The white fabric matched with the modest cut really make it ideal for a wedding dress, though.

I wonder if this is how brides-to-be feel when they see the dress of their dreams? Though this one isn't worth a mortgage payment and a half. I won't go into the subject of wearing lolita to a wedding, whether you're an active participant or merely a guest, but it is fun to imagine an entirely lolified ceremony. The fun thing about our time is that people feel the need to customize their lives, and that includes things like weddings. All sorts of dresses are being used now, why not a lolita one?

So what dress do you think you could see yourself getting married in, lolita or not? Right now all I can think is that I need to find a boy who will marry me just so I can buy this dress!
