The ultimate dress – wedding daydreams

It occured to me today that I can`t do a styleblog without talking about the ultimate dress – my wedding dress!

My sweetheart and I have been together for nine years this January, going on our sixt year as married, and lately I have been thinking about our wedding day.

To start off this post I can`t resist sharing this hilarious pic of a happy couple roaring off to the rest of their lives in style:

Getting married is a big deal -and problably the most deeply romantic thing I have ever done. Promising to share my life with my man felt joyous, sacred and peaceful, allthough there was nothing peaceful about the day itself :). We celebrated our love big time, with tons of family and friends partying bosnian-norwegian-style! (driving through the streets hooooonking the horns -check, LOTS of food -check, gipsy music -check, dancing on the tables – .. ok, maybe not on the tables, they were hired and made of plastic (hehe), but there WAS plenty of rocking and shaking our stuff!! ..and finally, truckloads of fun -check.)
I designed my wedding dress myself and my kind mum had a seamstress sow it for me. I found the silky pink dress material and the lace for my weil in one of my fave fabricshops at Grønland, Oslo. I sometimes take the dress out when I want to remember -or put on my veil when doing the dishes (what?! I hate housework, daydreaming of being Rapunzel helps!)

I`ll never get the stains from people stepping on my train out, and yes, I have considered cutting it off and turning the wedding dress into a party dress, but I shant. Unless I hit a dry creative spell. A really dry one. Or just really want a pink partydress. (I suggested that I wear it as it is to my sisters wedding if she decides to say I do some day, but surprisingly, that turned out to be a no-go. Partydress it is!)

My bouquet was made from dozens of pink and white roses

So, five years of married life on, what wisdom can I share with you?

1 Develop your sense of humour!
2 Enjoy the everyday pleasures of living together
3 Forgive eachother when you make it absolutely impossible to enjoy the everyday pleasures of
living together
4 Don`t live by other peoples advice (time for me to shut it :) )
5 Get married to each other all over again! (Honey, are you reading this? ;) )
Much as I love my wedding dress, if and when we decide to remarry I`ll go for something more sassy, complementing my belief that at 30 I still got it going on (I get better with age I tell you, and you`d better agree, the same has to go for you as well my sisters haha). For what it`s worth, I actually do believe that.
Here`s what I`d wear saying I DO today. And every day. Love you ljubavi moj.
