So, my previous post commented on the disgusting modern trend of 'seductress' wedding dresses.
My main gripe against the modern wedding dresses isn't even the immodesty (although that is a big deal too), it's simply the dishonor shown to the husband through what the bride chooses to wear. It's like she's saying it's all about her - her being as 'beautiful' as she can be, her being the center of attention, even at the expense of her own dignity and the respect due to her new husband.
But - even worse than that - weddings are supposed to represent the union of Jesus and the church! Weddings should honor God first and foremost. That is a pretty big responsibility - and it's completly missing in a majority of wedding celbrations. How can they when there is such a blatant lack of dignity and purity??
It's not a matter of dress style or skirt length - its a matter of attitude.
So, until attitudes are changed - dresses are going to just go along in the same horrid trends - or even get worse.
But - attitudes trends can be changed, and it can start with you. (whether it be everyday dress or wedding dress)
So - on that note, my next post will be a gallery of inspirational pictures of actually lovely wedding gowns, whether they be modern, vintage, or historical.
