Can you hear the wedding bells ringing?

So my sister is planning her wedding for next February. She is in London, I am in Japan and most other people are in Australia. I can't do very much from here so I thought I would help with the wedding dress designs. I bought a Japanese wedding magazine and sent it to London. Now, Japanese people love getting married in the 'western' style. Hmmm I am not sure that they get it. I flipped through said magazine and suggested to Anna that she get married in the 'girlish' style as was featured. I am sure she is considering it. LOL... Now she just has to find the right doll or teddy-bear to go with her dress.

I grew out of my Teddy bear phase thank goodness!!

Del, please take no notice of these dresses, I want unique, but not Harishuku!!

Hehehe... It is Harajuku (I think that is what you mean)
I promise you I wouldn't let you go down that street.
You will make a wonderful choice. Can't wait to see it!

Even I wouldn't go for that style for a wedding!

You have a teddy bear stuffed to the exact weight you were at birth, then you present it to your parents when you get married. I guess it is symbolic of you leaving your parents, so you give them the teddy bear so they're not losing you completely (or something like that, I may have missed the point).

What a sweet tradition with the bear. Good luck with your wedding and I am sure your sister will do you proud. Great site.
