After only ONE year! Thank you, Stage Entertainment for killing my hope, that it would only leave Stuttgart for coming to another city here in Germany, where they would the visitors, they wanted to have….
After trying on my prom dress to see if it still fitted after six years, I asked my mum jokingly if I could try on her wedding dress which hangs beneath it. She said yes.
When my mum got married, she saw the dress she wanted in a magazine, but it would have cost over £1,000. She didn’t have a particularly high paying job, and my dad was a 19 year old boy with an even lower paying job. She took the picture to a local dress maker and asked if she could copy it. She had almost the same dress, for £700 less. She loved it, and she’s kept it in fantastic condition for over twenty years.
It’s satin, with three-quarter length poofy sleeves, has a hig-neck made of white netting on top, finished with flowers. The flowers also span the breast, and there are flowers around the base of the dress, and here the fabric is pinned up to show the white lace beneath. It’s not a meringue dress, but it’s not completely fitted either. It has a beautiful, rounded train, with lace edging. At the back of the dress is more netting, a zip, and the buttons to the top of the neck are all pearls. Every pearl - from the buttons to the tiny ones in the center of the flowers - were hand stiched on.
My mum was convinced it would be too big for me, but it was an absolute perfect fit. Like it had been made for me. It doesn’t look like anthing especially spectacular hanging upon her wardrobe door in its old bag, and it needs some restoration cleaning on some of the flowers, but when it’s on it’s absolutely stunning. And it looks so old fashioned, which is a big box-ticker for me.
I would marry in it without question. I absolutely adore it.
Me when I first joined Tumblr:
I am a mature, responsible adult and I will use my blog as such. I will write about important events in my life, possibly food and movies, and I will make and communicate with friends.

Had intended to spend the afternoon in the garden reading, writing etc… foolish ginger that I am! I’ve been out here twenty minutes, I’m roasting, I’m burning in spite of my suncream, and my laptop will probably explode along with me if I don’t stick it in the shade like…now.
Damn my fair skin! Damn my intolerance to anything above 11 degrees!
