Cheap 'n' Quirky Wedding

Just another weblog

November Rain, 2011 June 3, 2010

When I first got engaged, so many girlfriends asked what wedding theme we were going with. I was still basking in the giddiness of a surprise proposal and hadn’t even thought about it (apparently everyone else has this pre-planned.) To combat this question, I decided to tell people the theme was November Rain. Yes, that November Rain. Guns ‘N’ Roses’ epic. The song that is becoming stuck in your head right now. This one:

I figured people would be so stunned at the idea of the short-front, long-back dress and Axl’s jacket that they wouldn’t be able to come up with any further questions and we’d be free to take our time coming up with this theme (or not coming up with one at all, as we’ve been doing.)

Turns out I’m not the only one who remembers November Rain‘s music video. Check out this Reem Acra dress from the Spring 2011 Collection:

Modern twist on a music video classic. So, if you want to recreate the November Rain wedding, here’s your modern chance. Are you planning on recreating any famous weddings? Like this dress? Share all of your thoughts in the comments!

P.S. When I was first describing the dress as “short front, long back,” all I could think of was a mullet. An unfortunate comparison, yet hilarious.
