Wedding Gowns - You VS Model

Recommended Posts

I'm in trouble then... the dress models are all 6' and 95lbs... I love the slimmer, form-fitting dresses too.

I plan to go barefoot, am 5'4", athletic 125lbs.muscle.gif

Maybe I'll do the bikini and sarong thing. thatswck.gif

You girls are all gorgeous!! I like the "real girl" pics WAY more than the model pics. The models all look so uptight and overdone....and there's just nothing like the look of a bride in HER dress.

 

Also, you all have great taste! I've loved looking at all your dress choices...it almost makes me wish I could go dress shopping again! I seriously only tried on 3 dresses before I decided on one! Nice that I didn't have to agonize over it...kind of a bummer 'cause I didn't try very many styles and have more "dress expericence"

 

I love wedding dresses...

I'm with you - 5'4" and well, maybe more than 125 - lol - but I'm still going with "athletic!"

Don't you just want to feed those models? They look so hungry!

Okay, here's mine (Janet, this model weighs about 100 pounds less than me too... well not 100 but a lot!). The model looks different in the dress - better in some places (tiny waist, long legs) worse in others (she's flat chested and I'm not wink.gif)

I'm also 5'4!!!! Except I'm about a deuce, a deuce and a half. Ok I don't know why but wedding dress shopping does not appeal to me. I never look for dresses and I have no desires to buy one. I am actually dreading it! But you guys all look great in your dresses!!! My sister says that models do the peeing pose b/c it makes you look skinnier since you hunch your shoulders foward to make the bones on your neck pop out. (My sister is quasi anorexic) It's so funny b/c I think "real" brides look so much better but girls here love the ano look where you have no boobs, or a butt and you look emaciated like your arms are going to fall off. A lot of people strive for that look here. I think it's Hollywoods influence.

i've never been accused of being anorexic - that's for sure. well, maybe high school - but that was loooooong ago! i always joke that i am partially bulimic (sp?) - I binge, I just don't purge. Ok, I know it's not a joking matter - but that's how I explain my eating habits!

I have to make jokes about everything or else I will go crazy. This is a sad world we are living in today and if we didn't have humor and had to take everything seriously then we would all breakdown and have nervous breakdowns. So I say joke away. (Except that I realized that it is possible that someone on this board could have an eating disorder in which case my comments don't seem so funny anymore.)

The dress is Monique Lhuillier and the style is "Scarlet"
I am literally obsessed with my dress (you can ask the other ladies - they know and are so sick of hearing about it I'm sure!) but I also paid a lot for it (I have someone buying it from me after my wedding to make back some of the $$$)

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?
