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.

This is a nice thread. Cringe off.:Up_to_something:

Haha then don't ever watch anybody "trashing their wedding dress". :)

OOH, THAT BACK!

The rest of the dress is pretty perfect too, but that back is to die for!

Is that a thing? :eek2:

Its awful Kenny
Its like people have way too much money
No thought to it being used again

back in the 60s (before i was born) my freind's mum had her wedding dress made into lingerie

Mum let us kids play with her train - it was white velvet and she used to gloves for gardening but her dress was packed away for safe keeping

As someone who has never been a bride it upsets be seeing wedding dresses ruined for fun

Well, I've thought of doing a few naughty things in my life too. :Up_to_something:
Most I haven't done though.

Hey, that might make a fun thread - if people participate.

I really enjoyed reading through this thread, seeing everyone’s beautiful wedding dresses and especially hearing the memories of your special day. If ever there is a day where joy is overflowing, it is ones wedding day.
What a perfect time to revisit great memories.

We are still basking in the glow of ours, even though it was over a year ago.
It was a second marriage for both of us, having both experienced the loss of our spouses in our 50’s and pretty certain finding true love a second time was a major long shot.
We knew about 2 weeks after meeting that it was the real deal, but waited 7 years before getting married because it made more financial sense. We were both on the cusp of retiring.
We were fully committed early on though.
Our wedding day was a long awaited dream come true and felt every bit of a dream as we hoped.
We both grew up along the Delaware River (in two separate towns about 20 miles apart), so having that as a backdrop was beautiful and meaningful. It literally was something that connected us long before we ever met.

The ceremony was in the side yard of a neighbors beautiful river front home and then we crossed the street to my childhood home where my mom still lives and had a beautiful, fun, tented celebration. We wanted something that would be fun for everyone including our nine grandchildren. It was perfect.

So onto my dress. Let me just say, it’s HARD to find a wedding dress that feels age appropriate when you’re 60!
I imagined I was going to have some Grecian goddess style dress, but it wasn’t to be.
When the sales person suggested the dress I ended up choosing, I said , no way, it looks like something out of the Jetsons.
But, she knew better. It was light as a feather, comfortable and I felt like a beautiful bride.
My mom, who is approaching 90 now, gave me her seal of approval. She has much better fashion sense than me, so that was all I needed.
Thanks for letting me share our special day!
I hope it keeps going! We need all the joy!!
Look @kenny, no mud! Just don’t look at my heels. Lol

Bluemuse you two make such a beautiful and radiant couple!
Your dress is the nicest wedding gown I've ever seen.
It's perfect, and you sparkle in it.

This part of your flowing dress brings to mind a Georgia O'Keeffe painting.

But, how did your photographer get the paper confetti to just happen to fall right in front of the face of all 3 girls at the same time?
Amazing. :bigsmile:

It is. I never did it as it wasn't a thing when I was a bride. I don't think I would have done it even if it was a thing when I was a bride. Not that I ever wore or used my wedding dress since the wedding so it wouldn't have mattered. But it's not something I would have enjoyed. We barely had photos during our wedding so I sure wouldn't have done photos after the wedding trashing the dress.


I should have donated my dress now that I am thinking about it. Too late now as the dress has probably yellowed and aged as I didn't do anything to protect it. :(

Awe, thank you, Kenny! So nice of you to say! Never thought of the likeness to a Georgia O’Keeffe painting, but I love that! She is someone who’s work and life I greatly admire. I visited the O’Keeffe museum in Santa Fe.
Yes, that photographer really had skills, didn’t she? Like they say, timing is everything!:kiss2:

Thank you, @missy ! That’s so sweet.
I agree and we do feel like newlyweds, even after nine years of being together. I think we’ll always feel that way.

It’s been so fun reading through this and seeing the photos! I got married at 23 in 1999 in Washington, DC. I never tried on one wedding dress - I just saw one in a magazine that I liked and had a little old lady make it for me. She charged me $75 plus fabric. Honestly, I hate being the center of attention, so I wasn’t at all interested in any details of my wedding. I wish I could go back in time and make myself care about some of the details and at least try on some dresses! I told my husband I’m making up for all of that now with my interest in diamonds and jewelry! Lol! This is the only photo I have at the moment.
