Have you ever found yourself wandering onto wedding dress websites to… just, you know… check out the offerings?
Maybe Vera Wang released her latest collection and you couldn’t help just having a scroll through the dresses? Maybe you checked out the clearance dresses on Lisa Ho’s website once she announced her closing down sale?
Maybe… just maybe… you’ve actually picked out your wedding dress already? Nothing extreme, of course. You just know that you want an Alex Perry custom-designed gown with a fishtail skirt. And a sweetheart neckline. And beading across the bodice. And no veil.
And that’s SINGLE women. So… no wedding on the horizon. Not even a proposal.
It gets more interesting from there. 37% of those women have already gone ahead and purchased their gowns. Keeping in mind that there is no significant other – they’ve just gone ahead and picked something that they like.
It doesn’t even end there. We all know that there are plenty of other aspects to a wedding – bridesmaids, a venue, a menu being just some of them – and it seems as though a bunch of British ladies have been busy planning that as well.
This from the Daily Mail:
59 per cent have already planned other elements of their big day, such as make-up, bridesmaids and a venue, despite not having any immediate plans to marry.
And only 41 per cent of respondents who had planned elements of their wedding day admitted that they had told a prospective partner about their plans, whilst 36 per cent claimed that their wedding plans had scared members of the opposite sex in the past.
So. It’s confession time.
