Be a Princess in White.

This is a scheduled post, so I'm not posting this from a holy city. Do leave tons of comments so I'll be a happy little cookie when I get back.

When I first started Tuesday Thoughts, I got the habit of saving pictures that I like whenever I browse Tumblr, Imgfave and Weheartit. Most are the kind of things you see on my Tuesday Thoughts' posts and some are just pretty pictures. While browsing through my collection, I saw there were some that clearly belong in one group.

Wedding dresses.

Yes, I, Hanis the Gorgeous, had saved  up pictures of wedding dresses, mostly traditional styles, without realising it. 

As we all know, I'm not the girl who's planning her wedding. I'll be more excited for the honeymoon because it will be in Rome, no negotiations. So when I told Mokesart my collection of wedding dresses, he had no comment. But another friend told me that perhaps, deep inside me I might have the urge to either be a bride, designer, wedding planner or a dressmaker.

They're not even Malay style dresses, but those white/cream/off white dresses that you see in those Hollywood movies. God, please don't tell me I've been brainwashed by those movies. 

I once wanted to design wedding dresses, because for me, its the dress that makes you feel and look like a princess. I don't even care about the wedding part that much but perhaps the fact that is is a dress meant to be worn on that special day is the reason why it is so pretty.

You might think:

Heck Hanis, just admit it, you wanna get married one day.

Its more like, I want to wear one of those dresses just for fun. Have my picture taken, feel pretty. No wonder I like watching one of those reality shows where they have to buy a wedding dress on a budget.

Here, are some of my favourites. As you can see, there's a common theme to most of them. Let's see if you can guess what it is. Apart from the colour.

All those white/cream/off white fabric makes me melt. Few days ago, I found out that there's a Disney Princesses wedding dress collection. Disney. Dresses. I went a bit squeee and took a look. The pictures weren't that close up to give me any idea of the details but they seem pretty-ish. But the price .. god. It could be just me, or is it actually moderately priced at 2000 USD?

I think that, perhaps sadly, that is a fairly reasonable price. Wedding dresses are expensive. I quite like wedding dresses myself. They're usually incredibly beautiful. I think part of me wants to get married some day but there's also a larger part of me that says I'm incapable of love, so I guess we'll have to see.

You're like my sister. Yes, Hanis, deep down, you want to get married ^_^ And my guess is, you love the lacy stuff :P

FABULOUS styles!!!! Love them all... and I have a degree in Fashion design, with a specialty in bridal. I worked as a design assistant for a bridal headpiece company. We got to design for all the new lines before they hit the runway. SO FUN!!!

And now I am in an incredibly stylish career... postal worker. :) Most days I go to work in my sweats.

Im drooling on the 1st, 4th and the last one! The last one will win the bet eventually - considering everything.

Maybe i will go for a cream gown for my Wedding this time around? I've done Red already. We usually do red, as a tradition. Lets see if Mum will agree.

to ans your question. Its the lace.
