Sarah Stright on Fashion: Some things to consider for soon-to-be brides — like me



  • The sizes and shapes of your girls.
  • The budget of each.
  • If you are choosing an "uglier" dress to make yourself look better, you'll just end up looking like you don't have great taste. You're the BRIDE — the love glow that you'll radiate that day will automatically make you the most beautiful girl in the room. AND, if you're surrounding yourself with amazing ladies, they won't WANT to outshine you, they want that day to be YOUR day.
  • Think of looking back on your pictures in 20 years — will the dresses you choose be classic enough to last all those years, or will you be left wondering, “What was I thinking?”
  • Think of your colors. Will the pink and purple combination you chose still hold up all those years later?

At the end of the day, it's your decision what your girls will wear — but don't you want them to feel as beautiful as you will that day?

(Look to the right for some examples of "matching, mismatched" styles.)

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
