She's decided to do it. She has. She's never been that woman who wanted to wed. That little girl who daydreamed about walking down the aisle in that perfect ivory dress with that perfect ivory train to say yes to that perfect groom. Not her.

He accepts her as she is, flaws and all, although he brings out her best. She wants to be better because of him. She is better because of him. Not work 24-7. Not anymore.

She's selected ruby satin slippers with rosettes. Yes, ruby. She's getting married, not giving up her personality. No need to get too traditional. And they are so striking with that beigey satin. By Stuart Weitzman. A bargain at 6pm.com.
