My Wedding Bliss

Gawd, I never thought I would be one of those women who stresses over their nuptials but afterwards says “it was all worth it,” but I have just finished going through all the photos and making my video and I have to admit… all the worrying WAS worth it!

On my wedding day I was nervous.  I had spent two months planning this and everything was set up, but where was my groom?  Where were the guests?  I had a hard time reaching my fiance all day, and the time for the ceremony to start rolls through and crippling lag is keeping the attendees from teleporting in.

But 45 minutes later, and we were done.  It goes by so fast!  A week later and all the anxiety I had is a distant memory and what I am left with is the memories of a BEAUTIFUL wedding.

Here’s a closer look at some of my favorite pics:

My dress was from Evie’s Closet.  What I originally had in mind for my wedding was a high waisted gown, something simple and antique.  Evie’s Closet had a nice selection and I just casually picked up the demo for this dress.  What I did not expect was for my jaw to drop to the ground the second I put it on.  Whimsical ball gown was my only choice after that, heeheehee.

My bride style isn’t sexy or bombshell.  Simple, subtle, and understated beauty is what I have always been.  For my February wedding, I picked Curio’s winter skins.  They are adorable and appropriate for an outdoor wedding.  Everything else plays into the uncomplicated elegance from my simple Caroline’s pearl necklace, to the minimally coiffed Fri.day’s hair.  What I did play up was my eyes, with Cake’s flutter lashes.

I must admit, I really accomplished something special with Airwin and I’m not just talking about my love for him, 😉  I was very picky about the tux.  I wanted a prim coat AND collar AND white prim tie.  It wasn’t easy, but then I found this masterpiece from Rabbit Kiss.  For well under 1000L you get interchangeable ties and a wonderfully crafted outfit.  Airwin’s wearing the only skin he owns from Belleza, but I did get him to dress up his hair; something we picked up at KMadd.

All in all, I couldn’t be happier about how things went and now I have the rest of my second life to enjoy what Airwin and I have, 🙂

Sascha’s Designs

I got the chance to experience Sascha Frangilli of Sascha’s Designs’ newest creation, Malicious, and I must say, that such a name for this dress is apropos.  Wearing this is malicious… to other people who cannot come close to competing, 🙂

Not only is it gorgeous, and classy, and opulent, it is extremely versatile.  With no less than ten color variations, two tops, three chest attachments and six different skirts (with available train), there is little chance of two people going to a party in the same outfit.  The beading is exquisite and the colored silk is iridescent and dynamic.  This is definitely one of the times were I felt like I was over the top and it felt great.

And the response has been phenomenal.  I turn quite a lot of heads and elicit praise every time I have donned one of the versions and strutted it.

Palette Opulente

With just one purchase, someone can satisfy their formal needs for several occasions.  In fact, I love all the oppurtunities I have with this gown so much, that I have gone beyond one dress and mix-n-matched different hues.  For my Christmas greeting cards this year, I’ll definitely be putting some of the excelent complementary draping Sascha has provided to theme the green or red dress.  Truly, the quality and detail put into this gown will flatter any polished fashionista and needs to be seriously considered the next time they need to be seen.
