What Does Your Wedding Dress Say About You?

When I was shopping for a wedding dress, I wanted something light, easy to walk in, traditional, modest and not real expensive. I was so happy when I found the perfect dress for me at David's Bridal which I have pictured here taken last year on my 10th anniversary (and the price was right). I could still fit into it! I'm really not big on dresses, mostly because of having to wear nylons and dress shoes with them. Since this dress came down to the floor, after the ceremony and reception immediately following, I changed into some white tennis shoes which I wore for the pictures at Stan Hywett Gardens in Akron, Ohio.

This very short little quiz really fit me. Here's my results:

What Your Ideal Wedding Dress Says About You

Your Personal Style: Modern and simple. You like clothes to accentuate who you are, not overwhelm you. (exactly! That's why I lost the veil as soon as my wedding party would let me.)

Your Ideal Wedding: A small ceremony at an old church with a beautiful flower garden. (Since our little church didn't have a garden, I always thought it would be neat to take wedding pictures at Stan Hywett Hall and Gardens in Akron, which we did!)

Your Philosophy on Marriage: You can have a deep commitment without marriage. It's only a piece of paper. (I believe this is true, except that piece of papers shows we made sacred vows to each other and are legally married)

Your Perfect Marriage: Simply loving each other a little more every day (This I believe is a good way to put it!)
Take the test yourself:

Here is the very best advise I can give you about keeping your passion and your marriage alive and thriving.

Read your wedding vows at least once every day. Here are some suggestions on how to do that:

1. Each of you reads them separately before going to sleep, that way infusing them into your minds while you are asleep. In other words, you are going to 'sleep on them.' Read them together at least once a month.

2. Read them together every night. This presents a perfect opportunity to create a space for conversation.

3. Read them together every morning. That way you both go off to whatever or wherever it is you go to with a pattern of the dream that you wrote into your vows. The likelihood of encountering people, things, opportunities, experiences, and ideas that support and reflect those dreams are 10 times, or more, certain to be part of your life.

I offer advice to 'keep the dream alive' in articles I post in my web site:
See you there.

Have a great life!

Love, light and laughter,
