It’s Day 3 of DA Weddings’s second annual March Guest Blog Campaign and today we’re featuring my friend Driana Branch of Wedding Night Bliss! Enjoy and don’t forget to tweet about our campaign using this hashtag: #daweddingsmgbc.
When I got married, I was a virgin. This means that I pretty much grew up as a huge “goodie-goodie.” And although I don’t regret it at all, there are a couple of things that come along with that lifestyle that started to bother me as I got older.
As a goodie-goodie church girl, I was always taught to dress modestly. I was shocked when my family started to go to a non-traditional church in my teenage years that the girls there didn’t wear stockings! Haha! I came to like this new found freedom and started to mildly resent the (in my opinion) overly modest style that was encouraged by many churches that I was associated with. I learned that it was ok to be a goodie-goodie Christian girl and still be a little sexy. Email me at WeddingNightBliss@yahoo.com if you’re a goodie-goodie getting married, too!
When I had my wedding dress made, I wanted to show my soon-to-be hub what I was working with! Plainly put, I wanted to be classy, but still have a little cleavage goin’ on!
Me on my wedding day.
(Most people will probably think that my dress was SUPER tame, but hey! It was pretty low-cut for my Christian gal up-bringing.)
I say all that to say that I am not at all against a sexy wedding dress. In fact, in my vow renewal (whenever that happens), my dress will probably lean more towards sexy rather than classic like in my original wedding.
But now I’m starting to feel like the wedding dresses that women are wearing nowadays are starting to look like a white, formal, floor length, clubbing dress! I mean, what is that all about? Check out what I mean!
Here are a couple dresses that I find a little too sexy, but others might think are fine.
A little too much cleavage, in my opinion.
Her entire back is out! Frankly, it’s teetering on rear-end.
The see-through belly area? Really?
And then there’s the obviously over-the-top sexy. Also known as, “trashy.” Hehe.
Is this lingerie or a wedding dress?
No words needed!
Like I said, I’m all for giving hub a slight preview of what he’s getting later that night, but we shouldn’t be making other men fantasize about what it would be like! Especially, if you’re wedding is in a church!
So what do you guys think? Is it just my goodie-goodie ways creeping back up or are these ladies a little inappropriate? Does it make a difference if you’re getting married in a church or not? How sexy is too sexy?
