My mom wore a red skirt, a peasant blouse and a crown of daises. My dad wore a baby blue polo shirt and khakis. They got married in my grandparent’s garden. It was pretty cute.

Great thread. I’ll have to try my mom’s on when I go home this summer. Her and my stepdad got married in the mid-eighties, but her dress was very classic as far as I can remember from pics. Peach and lacy. Hmmmm… maybe I should have tried it on before I bought mine.

My mom still has her dress, but a few years ago, she ripped it up and poured fake blood all over it to be a zombie bride for Halloween.

This is her in her dress, January 1973. It’s hard to see the detail, but look how beautiful she was!

@veganglam- So you totally look like Jordanna Brewster in those pics. lol. But how fun trying on mom’s dress. My mom was married in her army uniform so no pics but this is a fun board.

Here’s my mom and dad in 1969:

My mom with my grandfather, who I think was old school movie star handsome! If I have boys I hope they get his genetics!!!

 

This one shows the daisies on my mom’s dress and veil best.

I tried on my mom’s dress and it came to about mid-calf on me, she’s about 6″shorter than I am. It was pretty hilarious! Plus the neckline just didn’t look right, I mean really, everything was 6″ higher than it was supposed to be. My mom really wanted me to figure out a way to make it work, but it just wasn’t going to happen. I’m taking some of the daisies off her dress though and incorporating them into my bouquet πŸ™‚

Awesome thread by the way! Great idea veganglam! I think your mom’s dress (maybe minus the hat πŸ˜‰ ) looks beautiful on you!

I stopped fitting into my mums dress when I was about 11. Im adopted so were not genetically related. So I dont think there was a chance I couldve fitted it!  Love this thread!!
