Most brides dream of the moment they slip on that meant-to-be wedding dress, look into the bridal boutique's mirror, and declare it perfect down to the very last sequin. Some may even hope to experience that magical moment twice (those lucky ladies!) — once with their formal ceremony gown and then again with a frock perfect for kicking up their heels at the reception. But, we have to say, this is a first! When Thai actress Noey Chotika recently married her sweetheart Arm Maneechy, she decided to wear six — yes, six! — wedding dresses to celebrate her marriage. We're getting stressed just thinking about all of this bride's fitting room deliberations! (And fine, we'll admit it — we're a little jealous, too...)
Chotika tied the knot a few days ago, according to Yahoo! Style, and set the wedding wear bar to new heights with a literal wardrobe's worth of bridal looks. Firstly, each of her pre-wedding celebrations required gorgeous gown — obviously. Why just wear a wedding dress to the big day when you can basically have one for every day of the week? Therefore, at her bachelorette party two weeks ago, Choptika donned a HUGE white wedding dress, opulent enough for a royal wedding with its puff sleeves, yards of tulle, and long veil complete with a flower crown. Super casual, right?
But the woman is just getting started! For her a traditional Thai ceremony a week ago, the actress wore a shimmery pink wedding dress with tons of feminine details like illusion organza sleeves, metallic lace appliqués, and an ombré-dyed wrap skirt. And later that day, Chotika pulled off a quick costume change (are you keeping up?) and slipped into an extravagantly embroidered sheath for the after-party that perfectly coordinated with her bridesmaids' bejeweled pink ensembles. And yes, there's 13 of them because this bride doesn't just hoard wedding dresses — she collects bridesmaids, too.
Next up, for her and her hubby's wedding portraits, Chotika wore a beaded white wedding dress with a sexy scoop back just because. (At this point why not, right?) Then for her second ceremony, Chotika went with a classic ball gown by designer Zuhair Murad that's seriously even more jaw-dropping than the bride's wedding dress count. That illusion neckline though... We're obsessed!
We'd be thrilled to say "I do" in just that Zuhair Murad masterpiece alone, but Chotika had one more fabulous frock up her sleeve. For her reception, the actress looked party-ready in a sparkly silver dress, with her bridesmaids of course following suit, changing into sparkly silver crop tops that toted the names of the newlyweds. Phew!
