  • We went to the JP but we thought we were only getting the license that day, not actually getting married. I guess we were just silly. I think he had on a t-shirt and sweatpants and I had on a t-shirt and jeans. And I had to go to work a couple hours after we got married! It was a wonderful day, but it definetely wasn't how I would have wanted it...

  • I wore an off white wedding gown, in a church. If I were doing it over again, I'd go simpler. A simple dress in my parents yard with a big barbeque and bonfire. But at 20, I wanted the big wedding.

  • My dress was white and lavender, but it was a traditional wedding dress. It had a lavender bodice and a big white princess skirt.
    My family was scandalized but I didn't care, I felt Beautiful!

  • I wore a bright white wedding dress but I tried on an ivory colored dress and fell in love with it...not so much the price though ;)

  • My wedding gown was white, but had burgundy/red in it and matched the bridesmaid's dresses.

  • I had a "Candlelight" white ballgown with a beaded bodice. I loved it. We got married in a church. (pictures of my gown are in my albums section in my profile).

  • this being my last marriage (the first I wore off white suit and it was small intimate affair) we invited a ton of our friends--one of whom performed the ceremony--we wore denim, had barbeque, a country band, served margaritas--told my friends no gifts--we had it all lol--so they all went and bought themselves new toasters--gave us their old ones complete with crumbs--nicely wrapped tho. It was a grand time--I think what you wear to get married in is totally up to the bride and groom--not anyone else--

  • I wore a pale yellow dress. It was a formal dress, but we were married in his parents' backyard. It was wonderful, and I felt beautiful.
