GRANDIOSE GOWNS

Do you know Angelababy?

It seems that she is a Chinese star who wore a Dior wedding dress.

No one knows how much the Chinese superstar spent on her custom designer gown at her extravagant 2015 wedding to actor Huang XiaomingDo the math, as they say– 115 feet of ivory satin organza, 165 feet of tulle, nearly 100 hand-cut rose bouquets of Chantilly lace, not to mention the 10-foot train.  By the way, it took five months to create. One can assume that a massive chunk of the $31-million wedding budget was spent on bridalwear. Shame that the traditional Chinese costumes and rituals are being forsaken by wealthy Chinese. Many now go to Crete and Santorini for weddings and honeymoons (with their relatives in tow). Imagine a remake of my big fat Greek in Mandarin?

Another star’s wedding once fascinated the world. However it falls much lower on the price list. Grace Kelly’s 1956 wedding to Monaco’s Prince Rainier III exemplified Hollywood and royalty. MGM costume designer Helen Rose made the American princess’ dress from 100 yards of silk and 25 yards of taffeta. At the time it cost around $10,000, but today, the price tag would be closer to $85,000

  • P.S. SUGGESTION: New Bridal List: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue plus garment insurance against stain, loss or theft.

Dream Wedding Dress?

OR Dream of a Wedding Dress with Online Interpretation

 My Celtic side makes me superstitious.

Standard interpretations learned at my grandfather’s knee include oppositions, e.g., if you dream of a wedding, you’ll go to a funeral!

I do dream of being in a wedding dress at least once a year. It is not always my wedding, either! I try to give my own twist to the dream by considering how I felt in the moment and upon waking.  If you ever look up dream interpretations, you may find something similar to what follows: 

NB The meaning varies depending on whether you are already married or want to be! PLUS how you feel about marriage in general! A few nuances are included.

OBVIOUS

Getting married in a dream

 To dream you are getting married may represent your commitment to or partnership with someone or something.

 OR  wish fulfillment, if you desire to get married in waking life. [Surprise?]

PSYCHIC/SEXUAL

May represent a union or merging of the masculine and feminine aspectsof yourself.  

Your unconscious may be telling you that you have met the one you should marry.

Marrying your current spouse

May symbolize reviewing and questioning the status of your relationship. Consider how you feel – are you happy or unhappy about marrying your spouse in the dream?

May symbolize recommitting yourself and reminding yourself of the love you share.

Marrying your ex!!

May suggest you have learned from the experience and accepted the end of the relationship. (You may be recognizing the similarities between your ex and a current relationship.)

 A dream about a wedding where someone else is getting married may be dealing with issues involving your independence or commitment in a relationship.

 May suggest feeling jealous of the happiness of others. [FOMO?]

If you see others getting married, consider the main character traits of the bride and groom and how they interact with each other. It may be representing oppositional aspects within yourself that you are trying to accept and merge.

Other wedding-related dreams

 If you dream of a wedding dress or wedding ring, you may be evaluating a current relationship andconsidering the prospect of getting married; you may be considering making acommitment to someone or something.
