Annebeth 's thoughts:

No, the title doesn’t refer to me (yet!).

My brother and his longtime girlfriend have been on holiday in America to visit my other brother (he married an Arkansas girl) and APPARENTLY they just tied the knot in Vegas!!! I found out on facebook, how sad is that? To be fair, he did send me an email, but I checked facebook first. I’m sort of really sad right now, we’ve always been very close as kids and now that he lives in another country (Holland, while I live in Belgium) we don’t see each other that often anymore, and now he even got married without me :( But I’m superglad for them, of course. They love each other dearly and they are very good together. She brings out the best in him, and what more can a person ask for? And he had always told me he wanted to get married in Vegas, so I can’t say I’m that surprised.

To honor their holy matrimony, I wore something wedding-appropriate today myself!
In retrospect, I really hate these tights with the outfit. They look so “heavy” with the rest. I should’ve gone for sheer or light grey or something, but despite the beautiful sun, it was still too cold for sheer tights. And I didn’t think of light grey, so there. Maybe they represent a bit of my mourning for not being able to pick up some bridesmaid duties on my brother’s wedding! A friend cheered me up by promising to let me be her maid of honor if she ever gets married. She’s such a cool chick!

Do you guys have any intention of getting married? I do. I totally do. I want to have a loooong engagement and then getting married someplace outside, in the sun, in the summer, and having a party in a garden with lights hanging from trees etcetera, all enchanting and shiz! I have no idea what I want my wedding dress to look like, though. To be more precise, I have like a gajillion ideas what I want my wedding dress to look like, but I can’t narrow it down! I want to let all these ideas stew in my brain to have them evolve in the ULTIMATE dream weddinggown. I do know I’d like a pale color like lilac, but cream or ivory is ok too. And I’d like simple lines (no poofy princessdresses pour moi) and sleeves (I hate all those typical corset+poofy skirt wedding dresses, isn’t getting married about finding that uniquely YOU dress instead of looking like every other bride?). And maybe flowers in my hair. But that’s it! So if you have some tips or ideas, feel free to share! I’ve had this wedding inspiration folder on my pc for AGES. This makes me sound like a superromantic girl, but before things got serious with my boyfriend I had never even dreamed about getting married or anything like that. It wasn’t exactly high on my priority list, but when you meet that person you just want to celebrate your love.

gorgeous dress! i usually prefer dark tights with light dresses, but i do think that the dark pattern of the tights is a bit too harsh of a contrast

oh and in response to your wedding dress discussion, i do definitely think its important for you to find a dress that you like, but oftentimes, people just have similar opinions- just because has a "typical" dress doesnt mean they dont like it. just something to consider :)

I truly can relate to being far from family, so I guess thanks to facebook you can keep updated with events like marriage! :-) I love your entire look. I can't get away with this because I don't have your lovely figure so I'll just live vicariously through you. ^_^

Ohh... I was just wondering because your English is VERY good and you always talk about Europe. That's neat though! I'm from Germany actually, a little town called Wittlich. Ended up in the US because my mom met an American in the military and BAM I'm stuck here lol. I go back every 3 years when I can, I miss it :( Lol. But thats cool to know!!

Ive always wondered, are you American or European? Lol always wondered haha. But I'm married, it was a courthouse quicky marriage, but we're planning a big extravagant wedding something in the next 3 years. I cant wait to start the planning :) And OF COURSE like always you look gorgeous. The dress w/the boots & belt looks pretty!
