You know, I guess that's very true that dress shopping wasn't the event back then as it seems to be now. We didn't waste as much money on weddings and receptions, either! It's funny, though, that we both did about the same thing, and your picture looks a lot like mine except your dress had long sleeves! Even the husbands had the black tuxes with the wide black bow ties! I had my dress cleaned and sealed, too, but my older daughter didn't even ask about trying it on! She wanted to go dress shopping, and the first place we went, she found one she loved. In fact, she burst into tears when she looked at herself in the mirror! So I never brought up trying on mine! lol! The younger one is practical and brought up wanting to try on mine. So when the time comes, we shall see if that packaging preserved the dress or not!
what a beauriful thread
every single bride is beaitiful
im more into flowers than dressss and Princess Diana had the ultimate flowers of which i measure all others
im not quite through all the pages yet
i adore the photos back in the day
i think weddding dresses have become way over priced and now brides have two dresses
if i spent that kind of money id be wearing it the entire day !
but what would i know
we are not married
his first wedding was of the shot gun variety and she had blue bridesmaids with very droopy early 1970s straw hats on but its cute and they were so young
@mrs-b Two of my friends, one from Uni and one from school got married at Curzon Hall, I think it was one of "the places" in Sydney to get married back then.
It was really gorgeous, @arkieb1. I remember flags flying from turrets and all that sort of thing - soaring ceilings and the MOST GORGEOUS Italian tessellated floors! You probably know it was originally a very ornate convent and a lot of the pieces in it came from Italy way back when, when the order first came to Australia. It was a fantasy setting.
How can anyone let the "tail" (if that's what it's called) of a several-thousand-dollar white dress drag behind them on a floor, or worse, on the ground/dirt outside?
The pics I see of this in this thread make me cringe.
I love this!!Married on 10/10/10 on the beach with 15 family and friends present.
Fun fact: His parents and my parents were both married on 10/10/64! So we wanted to continue the tradition.
