Overlooked wedding attire - Shrek and Fiona

Shrek is a mean ogre, but if kids' movies have taught me anything it's that even the meanest, greenest weirdo should have a big wedding. Let's look at the sometimes-human, sometimes-green-and-hirsute princess Fiona.

It doesn't even look like Shrek changed his shirt for his wedding, but Fiona looks lovely in a square-necked white gown with green trim.

It looks like Fiona is wearing a low-slung rope belt with her dress. I've always read that full-figured ladies should wear belts at the natural waist or higher to make the waist look smaller, but she's the bride, so she can do what she wants.

You'd be surprised how difficult it is to find pictures of Fiona's gown. It's not the most beautiful dress ever, but I think it looks nice on her, and it's appropriate for a swamp wedding with fairytale characters.

Here's a little taste of their honeymoon:

Truly, it is the man or woman who makes the clothes. I hope this ridiculous week of overlooked wedding attire has helped you realize that having confidence will make even rags with cord belts look great.

Have a wonderful weekend!
