During weddings, the brides take center stage and is expected to be the only one to ‘shine’ on that day; even her groom only takes second place even if the moment is really for the two of them.
A number of brides even specifically create a dress code to ensure no one else dresses like her on her wedding.
But one bride recently earned praise after telling ladies to wear their wedding gowns to her wedding! This bride is not afraid to get upstaged by the other ladies and certainly knows that even though someone else might look more beautiful than her at the wedding, the event is still her show.
When Audrey Moore got engaged to Jesse Lumen, the two decided they both didn’t want a traditional wedding.
“We thought it was sad that most women only get to wear their wedding dress once, so we invited all the women coming to our non-traditional wedding to wear their old wedding dresses again!” Audrey said.
“We really wanted our wedding to really represent ourselves, our sense of humor, our creativity, and also not just celebrate ourselves but marriage in general as a choice.”
While other brides might feel jealous that there are other ladies who might be more beautiful than she was on that day, Audrey was actually more excited at the thought of having these many ladies wearing pretty dresses on her wedding!
“I’ve been to all of their weddings and I saw them all in their beautiful dresses. I wanted them to have the opportunity to wear their really magical, beautiful dress a second time,” she explained.
“It was like watching a group of princesses come to life.”
Everyone loved her idea and praised her for doing this. A number of netizens said that she’s truly confident about herself – and that’s admirable.
