  • 33 years ago today

    Yes it's that long since our wedding day.
    I've just updated my blog with the story of my dress ... and an embarrassing photo!
    PS Hubby looks like he's working out an escape route!

      I've taken the plunge - so it's your turn in September. Looking forward to another '70's pic.

          Wow, what a bargain that dress was! It seems to have gone on forever! Congratulations on the 33 years, quite a milestone (no, I didn't say millstone, there's a big difference ).

          Best wishes to you both (and what's left of the dress).

            That's such a lovely story. I bet no one will ever do that with their dresses these days. You have encouraged me to keep mine in the family when I eventually take the plunge!

            Really nice about the way you added the hearts in your daughters dress.

            Congratulations, I hope you have a really nice night x

              Congratulations on your 33 years!!! Quite an achievement

              Your dress looks fab and I really like the material you used... and to see it going on for so many other uses is fantastic!! Looking back now, it was definitely a bargain of £9.99 very well spent and has had many uses.

              I agree that you should definitely make yourself some sort of keepsake out of what's left of your dress, it woudl be a shame to have none of it... use it for something for yourself!!

                Happy Anniversary.
                £9.99 wasn't cheap for those days although I suppose it was for a wedding dress. You have certainly prompted memories. I cut mine up for a Christening Dress for Becky. Then she wanted a bride doll. I can't remember what happened to the rest.

                  I loved the Laura Ashley dresses of the 70's - and you used to be able to get bags of offcuts for patchwork in their shops, usually in a big bin by the door. A huge bag was only 50p.
                  By the way I changed out of my blue wedding dress into my going away outfit - another Laura Ashley dress!

                    So this scrap of material I've got left....
                    My daughter ( yes the wee one in the picture, now not so wee at 29 ) is off round the world next week with her husband.
                    They are backpacking from South America, via Easter Island, Oz and NZ, Thailand etc and China then home next June.
                    I thought I could maybe make a little good luck charm with the blue fabric that she could carry with her.
                    It will have to be small as they already have a load to carry.

                    I thought that would be a neat way to use up the last scrap of wedding dress and will be memento of home.

                    But.. any ideas what I could make?

                      How about something involving the Scottish flag?
