Wedding Dresses

Friday, June 29th, 2012

I unboxed my preserved and cleaned wedding dress after a decade in the closet because of Pinterest.   I was inspired by a “while the kids are young” parenting checklist, with a suggestion to photograph your little girl in your wedding dress to display at HER future wedding.  Brilliant!  So out came the wedding dress, beaded tiara, veil, and shoes.  I’m embarrassed to admit the box still had a moving label on it (from 2002).

A friend saw this same concept at the same time, so we had one big wedding dress up party!  The S girls ALWAYS bring the party.  They played obnoxious girl songs,  brought gobs of accessories and boots, and styled hair like professionals.   Our friends were a bit more tolerant than my girlie, who was annoyed with the two hardware clamps it took to hold to bodice of dress closed.   The result is some bridal goodness to display {hopefully} decades from now!
