SHS have been posting wedding photos. I'm not sure if I should jump on this bandwagon as they were going for "bad wedding dresses from the 80's." Sorry, ladies, I was married in 1993. LOL I'm still going to post. My MIL made my dress. It was beautiful & just like the photo I picked out. She hadn't made clothes in years but had when all her kids were little. She kept having nightmares that all the sews were going to pop & it was going to fall off me. It didn't. In fact, it's still hanging in my closet. Oh & my hubby & I only gave her (and everyone else!) a two month notice of the wedding. Not only was my dress made, but all the bridesmaid & maid of honor dresses were also handmade! My aunt made three out of the five dresses. My headpiece & veil was my best friend's. She bought if for her wedding six months earlier. It was pricey so she was more than willing to let friends & family borrow it so as to feel she got her money's worth. I think 2-3 more people borrowed it after me. We had an amateur photographer do our photos - ours was only her second or third wedding. I'm sitting on a sheet with my dress out around me & all the bridesmaids flowers were on my dress surrounding me. I look back at this photo & think of how young we were! My hubby was only 20 & I was 21. We even finished our last year of college as a married couple.
