So, isn’t this gown just divine? It’s available by Papermoon Creations at this round of the Dazzle Event. I’m simply charmed by it, but… I’m not a girl wanting to get married again, and if that special someone does come along, it’ll be at the courthouse. So, instead of a fantasy story, I thought I’d give a story about my real wedding, in Las Vegas, NV. My gamble in Vegas may not have paid out in the very end, but I still loved my wedding! It wasn’t a drunken spur of the moment affair, we had actually planned it there and took 50 of our close friends and family with us.
One of my favorite memories, and indeed my favorite pictures from the wedding are of me walking across the casino floor in my gown to get the chapel. They are interesting and amusing for a few reasons, people stopping their glassy-eyed stares at the mesmerizing spins of the slot machines to watch my journey, slight smiles on their faces. Strangers calling out congratulations and well-wishes, including more than a few salty comments. In the pictures the contrast of the gaudy and bright casino against the elegant white of my gown. Maybe most memorable of all, was me being proud of the attention rather than the usual embarrassment of a whole bunch of strangers staring at me.
If a picture is worth 1000 words then a 7-second gift should be worth at least 7000. Everything pictured, with the exception of my ground flowers, makeup, and my jewelry is all included in the package, which sells for 750 lindens. This includes the base dress, which can easily be worn on its own after the big event. There’s 2 layers of additional skirt, a beaded and a glitter, both of which have 3 separate layers each; there’s also 2 layers of the veil, glitter and tulle, of which there are front and back pieces; along with the flower crown and flower for the veil attachment, and the bouquet. Wear it all or mix and match your way into your dream gown. Still pics just didn’t do justice to how simply gorgeous this dress is, so I hope you enjoy the gif above showing it off a bit. I did decide to show this off in a lovely setting after my casino jaunt. For some reason, I thought the placement and slight blur of the flowers made me think of Monet, whose paintings I happened to see while on a separate trip to Vegas at the Bellagio.
My jewelry just happens to be April’s birthstone, the diamond. This month’s release of the complete set of birthstone jewelry that Beloved Jewelry is featuring each month. For this month, the price for group members is just 50L, and non-group members 99L, and the Beloved Jewelry group is FREE to join! These sets contain 2 bracelets, bento ring (which comes set for right ring attachment but is easily moved to the left with changing attachment point to left right finger and then editing it into the right position), 2 pairs of earrings, hoops and studs, which are perfect for shifting a little for a double pierced look, as well as a choker, and a separate pendant necklace. The sweeten the pot, there’s also a texture change script for 12 metals options. I chose to model it in platinum. All the past month’s birthstones are still available if you missed out, but not at the discounted price. If you want this complete set of diamond jewelry for only 50L, head down to Beloved Jewelry, join the group (which includes regular gifts via notices) before the end of the month. Even if you did miss the past deals for your birthstone they are still quite low priced at 125 lindens for group members, and 245 for everyone else.
You may also notice this nail polish which is rather well coordinated with my lipstick. No, they aren’t actually from the same store, but one is FREE and the only is only 99L in a fatpack of 6 shades. Take a gamble and guess which is which? If you thought the nail polish was free, you win! This is a new gift set out at the Free Dove from Main-Pedi. There is a HUD of 6 shades in the 21st Century Fun fact about this set, it’s the very first set of polish that Mani-Pedi released! You can get in a little piece of SL history if you snag this set. You’ll need the Free Dove group to scoop this up, but the group is FREE to join. Pro-tip, if you like these shades, subscribe to the Mani-Pedi feed and bi-monthly gifts of new polishes. If you guessed the lipstick, you still win as 99L for 6 nude lips is a fantastic deal from The Little Black Dress. In the box are standard tattoo layer, Omega, Catwa, LeLutka, and Areruka appliers.
The rest of the wedding was interesting. No, we didn’t get married by Elvis, we got married in a lovely chapel by a man in a purple velvet robe though! Elvis was included in the reception, however, with my ex-husband giving a lip-syncing to totally horrid and hilarious Elvis impersonation. Nearly everyone in attendance ended up drawn in by the casino after the reception, and we made a big party around the nickel slots, a good choice since nearly everyone was drunk. That’s about all that’s really fit to share here on the blog, so I’ll leave you with the usual disclaimer, anything not mentioned in the writing has been blogged before, so consult the style card at the end!
