I never gave it a single thought. Still haven't even when prompted haha. Not that I wouldn't want to get married.
Yeah lol. I remember in 3rd grade talking about it with my friends and I wanted a purple dress with blue and green details. Ew!
At my wedding I wore black leggings and a flowery shirt with green and blue dots with white flowers, so I guess it sort of was what I once pictured.
Well, that dress would have been ew, but at least it wasn't satin!
Eh, not really. Every now and then I'll see a really pretty wedding gown on TV and I'll be like, "THAT'S THE DRESS I WANT FOR MY WEDDING!!" but that's about it haha.

Love your icon.
As a kid I wanted to wear my mother's wedding dress, which had also been my grandma's, but that's about as far as I got, I think. It was a long, vintage white dress with a ton of lacy detail, and was actually quite pretty.
These days I'm kind of adverse to marriage, but if I did get hitched, I'd want a small wedding and I'd just want to wear a white cocktail dress or something, with colored shoes, like pale pink or purple, something I could wear again. And I'd want my colors to be either white and olive, or white, purple, and grey. And my bridesmaids would dress accordingly (although I think I'd rather be like, go pick out a dress that fits with the color theme so it's something you feel comfortable in, just have it approved by me first).
Not even a little bit. As an adult now I sometimes like to browse wedding dresses online, but otherwise, weddings are just expensive parties, and parties are dull.
i dont remember how i thought of my future wedding as a kid, but i assume its somewhat the same now since i'd like it to be kind of "princess-ey" as in i want a big poofy sparkly gown lol
Yes. But I was very conflicted. Because I wanted a big, Hollywood wedding but grew up Mormon, where you have a private wedding ceremony that isn't grand at all.
So I guess I just threw in the towel and had no wedding. My former employer was a wedding celebrant and she married my husband and I in her kitchen, with her partner as the witness. It was very insignificant.
that's interesting to me you grew up Mormon, seeing as I live in the land of "Zion" - do you mind if I ask where you grew up?
Ooh, fun! I grew up in Alabama, Texas, and then Virginia. I have an aunt in Utah, but that's it.
if your aunt lives in northern Utah and your family likes snow sports, I hope you're able to make visits to her during the winter months. :)
She lives near Logan. I'm not really sure where that is within the state. I haven't been there since 2001, pre marriage and pre kids.
that's very far north. :) it's the largest town of any size before the Utah-Idaho border.
I didn't actually..... now I feel weird. I dunno. I was very independant, even as a child, perhaps I was okay with the thought of not getting married.
Not at all as a child. I now know what hymns and anthems I would have sung there, but only because I really like planning (usually imaginary) music playlists.
No, I didn't, and it made planning the damn thing a bitch because I didn't have anything to work from besides a couple of weddings I'd been to that served as inspiration.
Turned out really well regardless.
I think a lack of daydreams or prior wedding thoughts can have both advantages and disadvantages - when you don't have your heart set on a bunch of details already, it can mean more flexibility and easier planning that way. :)
True, and we did end up with a pretty awesome wedding. It did mean, though, that by the time the fifteenth person asked me, two days after I'd gotten engaged, what my wedding colors were, I nearly started breaking things.
hahaha, I don't blame you - the notions some people have when it comes to weddings and the planning that "must" go into them beforehand (even before an engagement) can seem pretty silly.
Not really. As I got older, I thought about certain details, like the jewelry and the dress, but never really that much. Which worked out, since we had a courthouse wedding, with me wearing a discount dress from Sears and an inexpensive titanium ring (both of which I love!). I'll still coo over wedding dresses sometimes, but I'm glad mine was simple.
Nope, then I got married and I still didnt know. My husband had to plan the whole thing and pick out my dress.
No. Even today, I don't think about weddings. If I got married, I'd be fine with just going to the courthouse.
nope. i do have friends who had shoeboxes full of wedding ideas while single etc. but for me weddings were never anything to think about. i watch more say yes to the dress than is normal.. but i think it's less of a wedding/dress obsession and more of a randy obsession haha.
i've thought about it a bit now that i'm older and i was in a long term relationship that was on track to engagement before we BLEW IT UP WITH DYNAMITE. i'm not entirely sure if i'd want to have a big wedding or a wedding at all, but if i did i know what kind of party i'd want, what song i'd like to hear, etc.
Yeah, I always wanted a big poofy princess style dress. I'd still like a big flowy dress, maybe with lots of pickups. And pockets. I've always loved gardenias so I suppose I'd at least work those into my bouquet or something. When I was a bit younger I wanted a black and white wedding, or maybe black, white, and red. Nowadays I'd either go with that or maybe do teal and silver or teal and copper? The past few years I've grown to really love teal. I might not ever get married but I'd like to and I used to think about it a lot when I was a kid.
Never. My parents did not have an inspiring relationship and I had no interest in weddings at all. The only thought I had was how I didn't want my father to walk me down the aisle, so getting married seemed like way more stress than it was worth.
Not at all.
It actually made me a very mellow bride, since as long as the planning was simple I didn't have any preconceptions about what things should look like et cetera.
No, I never did as a child. I did have COMPLETELY different views on weddings from my first to my second, though. I kinda cringe at some of the stuff I did for my first wedding.
I only got into weddings after I had mine. It was the best day ever and I had no idea just how awesome it would be! I just hated the planning. The day was amazing though.
I never did. It made organising my wedding pretty easy, since neither I nor my husband had any preconceived ideas of what we wanted, so it just kind of evolved as we went through the process of organising it.
I don't remember ever thinking about my wedding when I was little. I didn't start thinking about weddings and marriage until I started dating my husband.
I actually have never fantasized about my wedding, or really wanted to get married. The closest I've come to that was playing MASH haha
Nope. Weirdly, I fantasized about having a Sweet 16... and then when the time came I didn't even have one. I regretted it for a few years afterwards but now I don't really care.
All the time. I couldn't wait to be married so I planned everything. Changed as the years went by, but I always had a "dream" (and realistic) wedding planed out....ever since I was five, I think.
I never thought about it as a kid, beyond when I was like 5 and thought I wanted to get married when I was 37. If God's cruel joke to me is making sure that happens, I'm gonna be kinda mad. (I'm 29.)
I thought about it once I thought I was going to be marrying someone. Now that that didn't work out, I have different ideas for it since I don't want to use the ones I associate with him. =P
