Go Figure: A Wedding Story
Oprah.com | From the June 2007 issue of
O, The Oprah Magazine
readers wear to walk down the aisle? An Oprah.com poll found out.
What You Wore
57 percent of respondents paid $500 or less for their gown.
19 percent thought the search was "a stress-inducing nightmare."
98 percent said "No thanks" to their mother's gown (though 26 percent want to hand theirs down to their daughter. Good luck!)
Nine percent wore a colored dress.
14 percent dieted to fit into a smaller size (35 percent say—hallelujah!—the gown still fits)
70 percent say they'd pick the same dress if their wedding were tomorrow.
66 percent have gowns that have been sitting in the attic, untouched, since their wedding day (a business-savvy 14 percent sold theirs)
60 percent were excited when the dress came off—"It's honeymoon time!"
