April 6, 2013 - Black is the new White



When I got married, I wore white. So did my mom. My best friend wore a beautiful light rose vintage dress.



Queen Victoria is credited with making white the signature color for the wedding dress in the west.



In the east, red has been the traditional color of choice.



Now, it appears, black is making an entrance as an haute color for a wedding dress.

If pink is the new black and black is the new white, then pink is the new white. Yet, you say your best friend wore light rose previously. Concrete evidence that something is messing with our time line.

Either that; or, the nation is getting so fat that people are wearing dark colors for everything.

Back when me and J were courting and considering a potential future marriage (though also considering not subscribing to a bourgeois patriarchal institution) I was going to wear black.

That last one is stunningly beautiful.

Yeah, I like the last one the best.

I wore magenta when I got married. I didn't really think white or any of those off white colours would be right. I've always preferred wedding dresses with a bit of colour in them.

eta: the second one looks like someone went to town with a roll of toilet paper.

I also liked the last one the best.

My Mom wore a magenta dress when she married my stepdad. She was definitely the focus of attention!

Your stepdad looks like he's fully capable of coping with a red velvet wearer.

I like the last one best too. First one is second on my list. The fourth one would do in a pinch. The other two: no.

So. Not the "new" white then?

Yeah, crushed velvet. They were very hip considering this was central Ohio in 1973. My Dad was the most capable man I've ever known.

Woman in the first photo looks like Kristen Stewart.

And I mean that in the most disparaging way possible.

I made myself a dress of scarlet silk and lace for our wedding, and bought a kid leather custom made corset to wear over it (to reduce my size by 15cm). Aside from the fact that I am no longer as svelte as I was in my 20s and 30s, I am also incredibly unphotogenic, and that's not just my opinion - photographers often comment on it, sometimes with astonishment as they look at the photo they've just taken. So... I looked like a tomato with heels. My sweetie husband photoshopped our wedding photos to make me look slightly less pudgy. That's one more reason why I love him!

V has a black step-dad?
I have no idea why that should surprise me. In fact I am slightly disappointed in myself that it does. But it's cool and unusual in my world.

Sandy, you are not unphotogenic.
You just haven't found the right photographer.
Well, except that it sounds like you found the right photoshopper.

I will never get married again.
In fact I doubt I'll ever have sex again TBH.
But if I did I'd probably wear silver or lavender.
Although like many people I like the last dress best. It reminds me of onions. Yumyum.
