Sentimental Fool!

I'm a huge sentimental person. Most generations now do not even consider wearing their mothers wedding dress. Most are too dated and out of fashion to really be worn again.

My mother was married by the Justice of the Peace. She wore a simple Jackie O' looking suite that was cream brocade with pearl and rhinestone buttons. It has a pencil skirt and three quarter sleeve jacket.

I'm getting married in a beautiful Cathedral and I don't think it would really go with the look of the wedding... but luckily for me, it still looks very stylish and FITS, and I plan on wearing it to our wedding rehearsal. I good luck charm of a stronger and lasting marriage. Yes, my parents are still married and going on 43 years this year.

I'm so excited to be wearing her dress, a piece of history, a piece of our family!

I do have to loose just a little bit of weight! My mother had a 21 inch waste back then... so I need to slim down just a slight bit!

I'm sorry the picture is so dim, it's 43 years old! I will post a picture of me in the dress after the wedding!

That is precious! I'm sentimental too. My family was given photographs of my great grandmother's wedding. I decided to make copies of the pictures, and have them framed to decorate with at my wedding.

I know it is completely random that I am reading this now. My friend just got engaged so I thought I would check out your blog for ideas for her. I love that you wore your mom's dress to the rehearsal. That is so awesome!
