Chalice In Wonderland: Always The Bride, Never The Bridesmaid Blogger Challenge

I guess one of the commonalities we all share as bloggers is our creativity with fashion working within the limitations of our environment.  There are so many wonderful blogs enlightening residents on cheap or freebie items that there's no excuse for drabness in our world.  This got me thinking about setting a challenge to see how many amazing and diverse looks we could put together sharing the one brief.

My challenge if you choose to accept it, is to create two bridal looks only using what is in your inventory.  If you happen to have a wedding dress in there, don't use it because that defeats the purpose.  This is about being creative, reflecting your personal style in what would be considered a very important day in your life.  Because flowers are such an important part of any wedding regardless of style and the fact that you might not have any floating around, you can purchase flowers only to accessorise with your wedding look if you'd like.

So get sifting through your stuff and come up with your own bridal looks for a BEACH THEMED WEDDING and a CHURCH THEMED WEDDING.  I had so much fun doing this because it really was a challenge trying to find outfits that would fit the bill especially when I didn't think I had anything remotely resembling a wedding gown.  We don't have to be white meringue's and I bet you come up with some amazingly creative looks because you aren't just looking at one total dress.

Here's my attempts.  I'd be really interested to see what other people come up with.  You know how people love to see a bride...whether they're admiring or laughing at her :-)  Just pretend that the person of your dreams said "marry me right now".  Could you put together your dream outfit with what's in your wardrobe???????  GO ON.
