That movie just thrills me to the core. Its handsome general, witty retro banter, and beautiful costumes and jewelry (Oh! The jewelry!) absolutely entrance me and makes me wish that I would have been born in a different era. However, this viewing - which has to be my 500th - made me realize how much wedding inspiration the film offers.

Rosemary Clooney's Dress in the Carousel Club Scene
The terrible screen captures above were taken from this video:
I don't know why I didn't go more retro with our wedding. I kind of dabbled in it, but do wish that I went a bit more balls to the wall** with it. Oh well. It was lovely. Someone else should remake Rosemary Clooney's dress in white and send me pix of it!
**"Balls to the Wall" is currently in my phrase rotation because I just found out that my 4-year-old godson, who is very holy (despite my being his godmother), heard his dad listening to that song and has been walking around the house singing it. I got in trouble for saying "butt" and "dupah" in front of his older brother a few years ago, so I am sure that my poor friend is not pleased with her husband.
