I Thee Wed.

June has long been the favored month for weddings, even in Second Life it seems, and curious, I decided to research why. It seems June has always been the most popular month, because it is named after Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage. A June wedding is thought to be blessed by Juno and by showing her favor she would bring prosperity and happiness to all who wed in her month.  Not really the skip down the aisle of wedded bliss type girl, I still enjoyed dressing up in all the frilly’s and fluff. I purposely kept my styling the same for most pictures, because I want the gown to be the feature, not the accessories I choose to wear with them. So for this blog, I just wanted to highlight some of the designer’s I feel have a real pulse on the heartbeat of creating a sensation on your once in a life time day.

So if you are one of these lucky brides, I know how difficult it can be to keep all the details and planning in order, so truly the picking of the gown and wedding trousseau should be the simplest and most joyous of events. That is why Nando Korobase’s Angel Dessous should be a treasured LM during this stressful time! One stop shopping for all of your wedding needs. This exquisite gown, “Gloria” is stunning with its taffeta and lace and elegant flowering accents. It is sleeveless and demure and includes a scrumptious veil. Angel Dessous has a vast selection of gowns to choose from, here, I’ve even called the limo: http://slurl.com/secondlife/blue%20sky/128/35/24/

Though never a bride, nor even an intended, I can be just as sappy about weddings as the next female. I think weddings are so romantic! Recently Bouquet Babii of Vero Modero had a gorgeous runway show featuring some of her many wedding gowns.  I am wearing the “Amasis” gown, an incredible, frilly and feminine gown with its appealing lace, svelte silhouette and gorgeous mermaid skirt. As you walk down the aisle toward him, there is no losing your guy in the added voluminous flexi’s found in a lot of gowns. Just gorgeous you! No need to worry about losing your hands, or groom, beneath all of your layers. Take a look, I know your dream gown is available in store : http://slurl.com/secondlife/Vero%20Modero/159/166/28

Now, let’s face it. Not all of us quite fit into the full gown appealingly. I am one of those models. I DO wear them, but perhaps it’s not something I would choose, especially for an afternoon day wedding. I am a little shorter than most and definitely coltish and a bit gangly, which is why this next gown from Azul could be just what I need. I certainly wouldn’t want to trip over my groom, and the odds are always in favor of it when Cao comes walking down the aisle. Mami Jewell of Azul must have heard a higher calling, this dress “Nerola” in pearl is stunning with its tea length ruffled satin and lace. Everything about it shimmers as you walk gracefully toward the love of your life. The flowers, feminine and gracefully cascade across one shoulder and beautifully enhance the trim fitted bodice at the waistline. Gorgeous! Stop by Azul as well, Mami has all spectrum of bridal from the after 6 formal gown to the simple sophisticated wedding. I know you will find something just perfect!  “http://slurl.com/secondlife/joia%20azul/118/129/25

And finally, I would be remiss if I thought all women dream of a frilly white wedding, this is Second Life after all, and we all can live which ever life style we enjoy most. Life style aside, culturally, weddings are often far misplaced from white formal gown. In some Asian cultures it is good luck to wear red for a wedding.  So I just had to include this gown from Aliza Karu of AD Creations Dollhouse. When I put it on, I just fell in love with it. It is predominately black with little skulls, showing the gothic nature of the dress. But what sold it to me? I love the Asian kimono styling! Everything about this choice is simple, yet complex and guaranteed to create a memorable, one of a kind day for you. Check out AD Creations Dollhouse, it’s a second life, define it in your own style:  http://slurl.com/secondlife/CSW%20Island/172/115/22
