Times have changed. We no longer wait until we get married to consummate a relationship. In fact, we'd consider ourselves restraint personified if we made it to the third date without a little bit of rough and tumble.
We see couples who have only just met have sex on live TV and don't bat an eyelid. Not to mention the constant stream of near-naked celebrity posts on social media that we are bombarded with on a daily basis.
So really it was only a matter of time before we took the virginal and demure white wedding dress and transformed into a kinky, barely-there slip of a dress.
We may not be rushing out to buy one anytime soon, but it wouldn't hurt to take a look at this bold, new trend, now would it? Keep scrolling.
We love a good wedding.I mean who doesn't? If nothing else it's a good excuse for a party and buying a new dress.
Picking the perfect venue.
Choosing a caterer.
And the wedding cake.
The all-important question; DJ or band?
Sending out those sought-after invitations.
Choosing your rings.
And of course the obligatory hen and stag parties. Naked butler anyone? They are on offer 241.
The anticipation of the dad dancing.We all know and love a relative that dances like this. Their enthusiasm is somewhat undermined by their terrible moves and rhythm.
We love a Royal Wedding too.
via: Getty ImagesOoh, don't get us started on a Royal Wedding. The day that Meghan married Prince Harry will be forever imprinted on our minds. Long live the Queen.
Even if it's a bit of a car crash.
And how could we forget the most important element of any wedding?No not the groom. The bride's wedding dress. The dress that should make every woman feel like a princess.
There are plenty of mainstream styles to choose from already.Like the figure-hugging fishtail option. Perfect for creating the illusion of curves if you don't really have any. The next one's a classic...
The ballgown.The most popular wedding dress style, this design is guaranteed to make you feel like a princess on your big day. It also hides a multitude of sins!
Strapless for those blessed with slim shoulders and toned arms.Another popular style, a strapless gown is a great way to show some skin when you have chosen a full-length dress.
And our personal fav, the sweetheart neckline design.It's in the name really, isn't it? Who doesn't want to look like a sweetheart on their wedding day. Plus they are just so flattering.
But there have been mixed reactions to the latest trends...

@TheSocialCTV I think a wedding dress can be too sexy, but it’s all just a matter of opinion. It’s your day, dress… https://t.co/JDIigrek3H— Bob Jones (@Bob Jones)1548443679.0

@TheSocialCTV @Pretty52 Not for myself, but if it makes you feel beautiful, go for it! A woman should feel beautiful on her wedding day!— Sasha (@Sasha)1548471258.0
But Maureen certainly doesn't approve.
