There are few stories more amazing than the story of Elizabeth Smart, the young woman who was kidnapped from her bedroom as a teenager and then miraculously found nine months later. She was 14 then, but Smart is now a 24-year-old college senior and child advocate -- and she's also a married lady.

Smart tied the knot with 22-year-old Matthew Gilmour last Saturday at a Mormon temple in Hawaii. "Elizabeth's desire was for what most women want -- to celebrate her nuptials in a private wedding with family and close friends," family spokesman Chris Thomas said in a statement. "We're just thrilled that she's married," her father, Ed Smart, told The Salt Lake Tribune.

And since the wedding was "kind of a spur of a moment thing," as her dad put it, Smart didn't have a lot of time to pick out her dress. "I tried on just about every dress in Utah," Smart tells People. She wound up choosing an Alita Graham gown with lace sleeves, a sweetheart neckline and satin-covered buttons down the back. "It was traditional, but still was different," she told People. “I felt like it was just perfect." Do you think Elizabeth Smart's wedding dress was just as perfect -- or was it a bit plain?

    You must suffer from low self esteem if you need to resort to hate speach to make your self feel superior.

    If she thinks it's perfect, then that's all that really matters

    I think it is a pretty dress. But my opinion does not matter. It is perfect because it is the one she picked for herself. So, if she loves it, that is all that matters, right? It must be perfect.



    I know whichever wedding dress I choose will be perfect for me, no matter if others do not like it. =] I want this:

    It's nice to finally see a wedding photo that doesn't consist of some celebrity and an expensive wedding. It'll be great to finally see Elizabeth celebrating another big stepping stone in her life.

    I also love her orchid bouquet. I never realized that orchids could make such a beautiful bouquet.

    For heaven's sake, leave this young woman alone. She had something terrible happen to her. She isn't some spotlight-seeking attention whore. She looks very nice. Why even question her taste? It's her wedding after all.

    Its just a typical boring white wedding dress that I'd probably seen somewhere else.

    She is a pretty lady. No use to insult her for she probably do not care what we think.

    Whose insulting her? My comment was NOT an insult. I dont find anything wrong with being plain if it works for them. Thats why I said it was PERFECT!

    I understand. I thought you were saying she was plain, not the dress..

    Im saying theyre both plain.. but I dont find anything wrong with being plain. It works for some women.

    Evdently. I see a lot of homely women and men both. So I guess that makes it a crime not to be yourself. In fact some might say that about you or I.
