Something old, new, borrowed and skimpy: Would you get married in a swimsuit?

Posted by

Ariel was quoted in an Today.com article yesterday about a new trend of bridal swimsuits:

Ariel Meadow Stallings, founder of the website Offbeat Bride (tagline: “Altar your thinking”), said she's never seen a wedding where the bride sported a swimsuit — but she wouldn't rule it out if that was what a woman truly wanted to wear.cute retro swimsuit“I absolutely know that brides do think a lot about swimwear because some of them are planning honeymoons to tropical destinations,” said Stallings, author of “Offbeat Bride: Creative Alternatives for Independent Brides.” “In honeymoon swimwear, I've noticed the trend toward retro-style swimsuits, which are more modest. They're flattering and feel timeless and look great on you no matter your age.”

Stallings pointed out that wedding-dress shopping can be a stressful experience for many women as they struggle to find flattering dresses in their price range. Adding the pressure of swimsuit shopping on top of that, she said, could be too much to take.

“It's hard enough to find a swimsuit that fits right, let alone trying to make it your wedding dress,” Stallings said.

Also, we think it's worth noting that Megan totally wore a swimsuit under her wedding dress.

So tell us: who's getting married in a swimsuit? And then the next question is… which swimsuit!?

  1. When my dad married my stepmom, we were all wearing swimsuits. We were at the beach on vacation (the parents, me and my two stepsiblings), so we went to the courthouse with suits under clothes, they got hitched, and then we spent the rest of the day at a water park as a new family 🙂
