Wedding dresses from four generations

Posted by admin on July 12th, 2011 filed in Dealing with loss, General, Neat things, Nostalgia, Wedding

There were wedding dresses at Tea’s house!

Here is my great grandmother’s wedding dress. I took the picture on the unicorn/rainbow bed spread (that’s where I slept when I stayed overnight).

And here’s a picture of my great grandmother and great grandfather on their wedding day! Look at how much I look like her! The nose is a bit different, and I can’t tell if her hair is curly, but I think there’s a marked resemblance.

Here is my grandmother’s wedding dress. Her waist was so tiny! Look at that satin. It’s still extremely soft, even after 60 or so years. Again, this picture will feature the unicorn bedspread.

Check out the tiny buttons going up the back. Unbuttoning buttons is a great way to pass the time on your wedding night!

This one is my mother’s wedding dress. I commented to her that it’s too bad there is a stain on the front. She shrugged and said no outfit of hers is complete without something spilled on the front. I love my mom.

This one is my wedding dress! It might not be tiny waisted, or have a long train, or splashes of color from food splatters like the others, but it does look kind of like a pretty bell. You know, if you look at it just right.

Here’s an accidental double exposure of it.

    Awesome post! I Luke that you included the old photo too. I don’t see much resemblance, but I suck at that. You should totally get a picture of you and Bert taken in that style. I think it would definitely suit Bert, and you would look neat too. My grandparents had something like that done on vacation with period costumes, but they forgot one CRITICAL piece. They smiled. It wrecked the whole image. I didn’t have the heart to tell them that they did not smile for pictures back in the day.

    Maybe we should try something like that at Pennsic? Our new babysitter has some wild West pictures like that. They rock. Or whatever they did in the Old West that is the equivalent of rocking.

    I think this post is wonderful Megan. It makes me want to call and talk to my grandmother, eventhough she may not remember the conversation later.

    Yes! Everyone should call their grandmother’s now, while they still can!
