Holy dress budget

Sorry if this is already on here somewhere, but

I wonder how heavy that dress is. And I'm pretty sure that cake is bigger than my first apartment.

  • I know, right? I love flowers but I think the smell of that huge wall of flowers would overwhelm even the biggest room.

  • That cake.  Wow. Either some slices are huge or some don't have much frosting :(

    That poor girl probably couldn't even sit down, never mind dance. And personally, I'd be terrified that I would spill something, so no eating or drinking. A hungry, thirsty, achy, cranky bride probably made for a lovely wedding night!

    If you read the comments, someone said they should have hired a better photographer.  I love that someone confused instagram pictures for professional photos. 

    Poor SO would die in a room like that.  I probably would get a migraine.

    I don't even think walking in it looks very possible. But, they did pay over $1 million for a dress, so maybe they paid a person (or 20) to carry her around.

  • I know that love doesn't have an age, but I can't believe she is 20! I look back at my 20 year old self and I have changed and matured a lot. I couldn't figure out how old the groom was.

    Lord, am I glad I didn't marry my ex when I was twenty.  Not that this is close to the same thing.  I'm sure there was a large amount of matchmaking present in this marriage.

  • @levioosa Probably ... not sure if that makes it better or worse. My Mom grew up with a lady who had an arranged marriage and they just celebrated some higher number anniversary a few years ago. I suppose it can work. I'm glad my parents didn't arrange my marriage ... I'd be knee deep in babies with the next door neighbour kid if they were in charge!

    @ernursej I'm not sure if that makes it better or worse either.  I personally wouldn't want an arranged marriage, but I respect those who are a part of it.

    I hope she has a hoverboard under there so she can just glide from place to place.  One of the ones that doesn't catch fire, ideally.
    I just had a spit-out-my coffee moment. Seriously dying [OF LAUGHTER] right now!

    I mean... all practicality aside, it really does seem like a fairy tale come to life. That dining room is insane. 
    Hopefully the favors included Benadryl or Claritin. 

    I follow a haut couture account on Instagram and Ellie Saab is a frequent feature. Those gowns are to die for.

    Can you imagine the florist's reaction to the final count/numbers?  Cha-ching. They don't have to do another wedding this year!

    I like this comment in the comments section, and I believe it's true.  Over kill:

    I have done lots of weddings and this one , while beautiful, is just too much. It distracts from the bride, the wedding party and the things that are supposed to be the focal points of a wedding.

    I was thinking the same thing CharmedPam.

    Beautiful details, but TOO MUCH. EVERY detail is over the top, it becomes overwhelming.
