We asked Grandma what was up with the pointy breast style that her dress is sporting. It's some serious pre-Madonna conage action happening. She couldn't remember why all the girls thought that was so attractive back in the day.
I cannot believe that I never picked up the phone to call and ask if any relatives still had their wedding dresses, and if they might be open to the idea of me wearing it for my wedding dress. I still love my dress (and can't wait to go pick it up in 2 weeks), but their is so much significance behind wearing a dress passed down through the generations. For a dress not cleaned or preserved in any way, it's in rather good condition. Grandma even thinks she let us grandkids play dress-up in it when we were younger. I cringe at the thought of how careless I probably was with such a treasure.
Grandpa, Grandma, and myself.
The 50's style dresses are so fun to swish and spin around in. This shot highlights the two problems with the dress. See the ripped netting swinging around behind me, and my cone shaped breasts :)
My grandma and grandpa own and live on a diary, and while we were outside taking pictures on the lawn, my sister MOH runs out in a full length cow pantsuit. The resulting photos are marvelous.
She is going to hate me for posting these. Let's all let her know how hot she looks as a bovine.
