Hi everyone, it is the first day of May! Can you believe it is almost half of the year already? Time seems to fly faster than we thought. Soon, one of our close church mates will tie the knot and be one of those blushing June brides. She chose my sister to be part of the entourage so I went with her today to have her gown fitting.
Exactly the same month last year, both of us did a few trips back to our assigned couturier. My cousin got married to her first and only boyfriend and she wanted that her only girl cousins to be her bridesmaids. I have written a post about that and if you are interested, you may read it here. But since I want to show you how horrible I looked at that time, here’s a snapshot of me wearing my gown.
As I write this post, I remember a funny and scary thing that happened during my cousin’s wedding. I caught her bouquet! It was a crazy game which made the flowers landed on my hands, actually, not the typical bouquet-throwing thing. Still, I don’t want to get married next!
However, that doesn’t mean I have to be exempted from all those wedding talks. My close friend and colleague, Jae, made me feel like her personal Event Coordinator. I know most of the details of her wedding preps and it gave me a somewhat first-hand experience on the do’s and don’ts in preparation. What excited me the most was the talk about bridal gowns!
Last year, I posted photos of some bridal gowns that I like. You may find it here. Now, I tried searching more styles over the Internet. Perhaps Jae being tight-lipped about her wedding dress made me want to see more designs. At any rate, here are some gowns which caught my attention.
I found these in a cheap clothes store online called eFox City. Most bridal gowns I have seen while browsing are featured in a shop dedicated for weddings only, but not these. True, this online store supplies most wedding apparel, but they also provide fashionable clothing for both men and women. Along with the bridal gowns, I was able to check some chic and trendy Asian-inspired clothing. And oh, most of the products are my style!
I know that I have to put my purse in lock and key since I spent a lot on online shopping these days. It is not easy to stop myself from clicking item after item and hitting that checkout button. Somebody please stop me from being an online shopaholic!
For now, I must try to be contented on putting products I like in my wishlist. If a week passed and I still like them, that’s the only time I have to shell out some hard-earned money. But we can still admire them, right? I saw some items perfect to be worn as guests in a wedding ceremony or formal event. I already have something to wear, but…
How about these men’s shirts?
So what do you think guys? I know a fellow blogger who is already engaged. Please let me know your thoughts on bridal gowns! For others, do you have an upcoming wedding party to attend? Have you decided on what to wear? June is already in the air so do not be surprised if you get invited like me. One advice: girls,do not wear white unless you’re the bride! 🙂
