Weddings and wedding collocations

imagesCAZ8Q6AI Hi guys! It’s been an incredibly fast week and two weddings on the weekend. So, I had this idea to give you some wedding-based  vocabulary.  First off: Brides want dream wedding dresses. Also called gowns. We can describe them as: classic, romantic, modern, bohemian, glamorous and beach style wedding dresses. Secondly, the fabric these dresses are made of are: lace, organza, satin, silk, taffeta and tulle. Thirdly the silhouettes they are designed: A-line, mermaid, princess, ball gown and sheath. Fourthly, necklines: asymmetric (one-shoulder), strapless, off-the-shoulder, halter (fastens behind the neck and back), v-neck, boat-neck(bateau), scoop, high –neck, square and sweetheart. The wedding dress of every bride’s dream is not only the floor-length princess dress. In fact, some brides may opt for a tea-length instead, which is a  dress below the knee, also appropriate as a second wedding dress. Nevertheless mini, ankle and knee length dresses are options as well. Planning a wedding is one of the most exciting and most stressful things a woman will ever do. It can quickly become overwhelming. Bridesmaids, maid of honor, flower girl and ring bearer, wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner (  an informal pre-wedding ceremony), catering, and choosing the reception venue are part of a bride’s concern. What about the groom’s role in all this? Choosing the best man and his groomsmen? Is that all??? Of course not!!! Buying the engagement ring, paying the honey moon and picking up his tuxedo,  sharing some bills can be as stressful as the whole wedding planning. Finally after all this, the bride and groom have no more duties as such, and can spend the rest of the evening mingling, dancing and chatting. Bye. Hope you are having a good long weekend! Kisses. Renata.
