It's the fantasy of almost every girl, to find the perfect match and get married. Your wedding is the day you'll remember for the rest of your life and the dress you'll wear only once becomes your most treasured possession.

The marriage involves a compromise between each other assumed out loud in front of friends and family:
"To have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part." Book of Common Prayer
In the latest Lars Von Trier movie, Melancholia, the mother of the bride makes a toast in her daughter's wedding day: "I just have one thing to say: Enjoy it while it lasts!"
This is certainly more appropriate for today when so many marriages end up in divorce. However, some people manage to succeed such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Heidi Klum, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Melanie Griffith and Gwyneth Paltrow.
I do believe in marriage but the most inspiring example comes from my parents, their vows are not just poetic but also pragmatic, and I've seen them supporting and loving each other in excruciating circumstances.
Their relationship is the result of many battles, sacrifices, respect and endurance, it's the whole story that starts where most movies end. My favourite wedding dress was designed by Viktor & Rolf, because it brings love to centre stage.
