    As always you are fabulous. Love the hypno-crotch commentary. Only you would devise such a word! The end one with the pigtails and the grannie pants show through is a killer!


  2. I’m just happy I am never planning on marrying again. Phew, that one Hougton dress is just about the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen and to make matters worse, it looks grungy dirty in color. I’m checking back for mrs moles comments because gosh she might get one of these to alter! ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Oh, so now they’re getting married in high-water trousers and mini-skirts? I’m gonna say it! The young folks these days have no respect for tradition.

    I like the last one except for the lack of lining or slip and a few of the others are pretty.

    Erin is obviously a girl that will say yes to everything. Well maybe in her defense, she has no tattooed on the other hand ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Just about fell off the chair with the breastfeeding comment. Hilarious ๐Ÿ˜Š

    For once most of these are quite wearable, although I would have to nix the aviary dress. The Herrera is so chic, but I love the black dress and veil (drama queen, moi). If I hated my prospective mother-in-law, this could give her palpitations.

  6. As someone who has a daughter getting married in under 12 days…whew, I’m glad she’s a traditionalist ๐Ÿ™‚ Some of these have such beautiful lace…but trust me, girls…your guests really don’t want to see that much! I’ve seen sweet girls cramming themselves into those awful Kardashian style dresses when they should be thinking ‘ball room full skirt’. Sigh. Be the Diana – you’ll thank me later!

    Can’t wait to see if Mrs Mole meets up with any of these…although she’s already had some doozies this wedding season ๐Ÿ˜‰

    As always, great commentary! And for the record…there is some FABULOUS lace out there ๐Ÿ™‚

    Okay, I love the Ellie Saab creations, but the black and gray frock is disturbing at best. A doily would come in handy on that crotch! LOL…And the disco ball, hilarious.

    Anyone else distracted by the model’s eyes wearing the “disco ball” dress? I had to scroll around to make sure it wasn’t part of the makeup look.

    Now I have to think of ways to add crotch-doily to my daily vocabulary.
