    Hi All -

    I'm going to be getting married probably a year from now......I'm only 22 - so I haven't truely lived the hippy world but I've been a hippy at heart since birth (my mom has a video of me singing "they call me mellow yellow" in my sandbox when i was about 4) so anyway -

    i'm getting married and i'm not into the typical fru fru poofy dress thing and i want to have a hippy wedding - barefoot mandatory and all that. Anyhow all i can find online as far as pics of dresses are kind of prude ones - high lace necks and all that. I'm wondering if anybody had a hippy wedding back in the 60's and could possibly send me pics of their dress?!?! I just need a pic my grandma and I are going to sew my dress so all we really need is a visual. ( i tried to draw a kind of dress i wanted - she did a test run skirt part of it and it looked more like little house on the prairie than hippy)

    so anyway - please help!
    if anyone has any good idea's to help make the wedding more genuine - i'd love to hear it!

    thanks!
    abbie

    I put this one up in Applespark's post. I saw it on ebay. I liked it. :) It's not exactly what I want, but it's easy to change around. The girl designed it herself. :)

    Me, neither. And I hate to say it, but it's probably because it's the baby. Andrew said he just wasn't ready to be a daddy...yadda yadda yadda....


    It must be nice to have that choice! I wish I could say, "Gosh, you know, I just don't feel like being a Mommy today!" and the whole world would cater to me and I could be a princess. But no.

    But I'm happier with Noah than I was with him. And I can always threaten to take him back to Sears if he acts up. That's what my mom always used on me... :)

    Sometimes I'll lie on the floor and pretend to be dead and Noah climbs all over me trying to figure out what's wrong. It's so cute. Then, when he's on my back, I'll jump up and run around like a horsie... :) I have no friends. But it's better than dinner and a movie. And I burn calories.... :)

    It's so cute how, if he thinks I'm hurt or something, he'll come over and put his hand on my leg to make sure I'm okay. I have a sweet boy!

    I love that. When i get married (years from now) i'd like to use something like that instead of the regular vows. I am not christian so I don't want a christian wedding. I will probably get married on a beach or something.

    We got married barefoot in the park. We actually had two ceremonies. The first was for a very select group of friends. It was a Wiccan Handfasting. Then in the afternoon we had a wedding with a more Native American theme to it. That seemed more acceptable to family. We both wore hemp. My dress was sort of like a long A-line with bell sleeves. The sleeves had long fringe made from the colors of the four directions. I also had a shawl that had fringe in the same colors. DH wore a cotton shirt that we bought at a ren faire with hemp pants. On the front of his shirt and the front of my dress I made a medicine wheel with the ribbons of the four directions and appropriate crystals at each direction. It's kind of hard to describe. But it was pretty cool. We had a giveaway from the Native tradition. We gave each person a dream catcher that we made ourselves. There was a ribbon attached with our names and the date on it. We used the Apache Prayer also. Then on our honeymoon we went to the Hopi, Navaho, and Zuni reservations. Arizonia and Southern Utah are beautiful places to visit.

    I think the whole barefoot idea is so beautiful.. I could definetly have a hippy wedding if I ever plan on getting marry, lol.. Still not sure if I could see myself with just one person for the rest of my life, but life may throw me someone decent.. Good luck with your wedding.. that picture of the dress shown here is quite beautiful.. =)

    One of my hippydippy friends had his wedding at the courthouse and his reception at Dunkin' Donuts. Teehee...

    I'm sorry I don't have anything constructive to say- congratulations, my friend. Have a donut.

    you know, I a hippy man feel the same way.

    there will be one in my life someday. but I don't think I will find one here in my town. I am also not afraid of a sister with a family, but my first goal is to finish college then find a partner and take on the world!
