When I saw the photos of Chelsea Clinton’s wedding, I thought about a question that’s been going through mind lately. Why are women selecting such revealing wedding dresses?
Is it because fashions in general are showing more skin? Or because modern undergarments allow enough support so that the bride can walk down the aisle, greet people, and dance at a reception without difficulties? Or because social attitudes about marriage have changed since many couples live together or share intimacies before marriage?
As a baby boomer mom or dad, have you and your daughter disagreed about how revealing her wedding dress should be? Do ministers, priests, and rabbis object to revealing dresses?
I’ve watched the wedding gown shows a few times on television and most of the dresses shown are strapless.
In looking for examples of today’s wedding dresses, I ran across The Bridal Buzz’s "Top 10 Sluttiest Wedding Dresses." These go way beyond anything I’ve seen.
Here are some tips from a wedding photographer on how to select a strapless wedding gown.
