缘定碧浪 爱似海洋 —— 二十多年的婚纱梦(下)

–淘纱

看过很多huaren婚版的mm们将自己淘纱的经历,大多数都是“众里寻她千百度,那纱却在灯火阑珊处”的感觉,我却貌似正好相反,我几乎是试一件爱一件的博爱型,怎么觉得每件婚纱都设计的这么漂亮啊?!

淘纱活动进行了三次,分别和seren, Coffee,和小Q三个闺蜜前往。前两次在San Diego,走了 D’Angelo Couture Bridal http://www.dangelocouture.com/, Here Comes the Bride http://www.hctb.net/site.html, 和David’s Bridal http://www.davidsbridal.com/ ,试了十几件婚纱,还是一点idea都没有。开始觉得A-line的很好,后来发现鱼尾的很显身材很不错,再后来看到公主蓬蓬群也一下子fall in love…… 我,我还是面壁去吧……

最后回国了,和小Q闯进了北京著名的五棵松“婚纱城”。国内和国外的婚纱行业真是大相径庭。婚纱城里一个接一个的小店,各种品牌的婚纱琳琅满目,商家们互相敌对,竞争十分激烈。而且国内的婚纱也没有谣传得那么便宜了,上档次的都要上千。结果还没怎么热身,进去的第一家,试的第二件就成了favorite,回头再看别的都看不上眼了。倒是纠结了半天要不要拖尾,因为价钱能差上一半。结果在小Q的劝说下弄了个长长的拖尾的。小Q噼里啪啦的讨价一番自不必多说。没想到复杂的淘纱工程就这么被搞定了,好像还有点这么意犹未尽。我现在的梦想就是穿着长拖尾的婚纱在有玫瑰花瓣的aisle走向幸福了!

国内的婚纱行业比美国的好多了,买一件婚纱就附送裙撑,手套,头纱,我也就不用再多折腾了,倒是另选了两个可爱的小王冠。同时还在同一家店买了一件短的象牙色小礼服,可以reception和honeymoon穿。旗袍我是不想要了,上次被说像服务员被打击怕了……

美国新娘要四个something:
something new, 婚纱!
something old,  决定穿我那双Prada的白鞋子,不知道是不是快变成灰的了……
something borrowed,  从Dido 美女那里借珍珠项链,嘻嘻
something blue, 最后选了一个蓝色的小头饰



四个something的由来(google 来的):Each item represents a good-luck token for the bride. If she carries all of them on her wedding day, her marriage will be happy. "Something old" symbolizes continuity with the bride’s family and the past. "Something new" means optimism and hope for the bride’s new life ahead. "Something borrowed" is usually an item from a happily married friend or family member, whose good fortune in marriage is supposed to carry over to the new bride. The borrowed item also reminds the bride that she can depend on her friends and family.As for the colorful item, blue symbolizes love, modesty, purity, and fidelity. Before the late 19th century, blue was a popular color for wedding gowns, as evidenced in proverbs like, "Marry in blue, lover be true."
