Wedding Fantasies - Alexandra from Baby Steps

 

My leading ladies do not always have lives in which marriage is an option, but that doesn't mean they can't imagine themselves in that traditional white gown...What kind of dress would they have picked if the occasion presented itself? Today, Alexandra from Baby Steps.

~~~

You wouldn't know it from the way I usually dress, but I can be a girly-girl at times. Growing up, I knew I wanted to be a Special Enforcer like my father... but I did play dress up, and officiated weddings for my dolls, and at prom time I spent hours trying on dresses in search of the perfect one.

I did imagine myself in that white dress and walking down the aisle on my father's arm. A traditional wedding isn't going to happen, not with Joseph being a vampire, but we could do a commitment ceremony. I'm sure Marian would be thrilled. And all right, I would be too, but I'm not going to suggest it first. Call me old-fashioned, but I believe it's his prerogative to propose.

Knowing Joseph, he just might be waiting for the right time.

But when he does ask, I already have the perfect dress in mind. It's outrageous for a S.E. to be in love with a vampire or wan to marry one. My dress would be just as outrageous. I imagine a rushed top, with a sweetheart neckline... pretty but traditional. For the bottom, on the other hand, I want something full and wild. Feathers, maybe, or at least something that looks like feathers. Something a hundred light years away from anything a Special Enforcer would wear. Something that'd make Marian smile when she saw me, and that would light those flames in Joseph's eyes.
