  2. Congratulations! What a wonderful example for us youngsters - we've been married almost 10 years, but I have trouble remembering life before marriage. I can only hope we're blessed with another 33 years.

  3. Congratulations! Your gown looks much like mine did (married 25 years), and I think they looked classy! BTW, I am very impressed that you made your own gown.

    1. Thanks, Angela. In those days deparment stores like Filene's would put artist's renderings of their clothing in the newspaper. It was a delight to open the Boston Globe on a Sunday and look at those gorgeous drawings of designer clothing. I saw a similar gown in a Filene's ad. Can't remember the designer and so wish I had that drawing today. The veil/headpiece was from a different ad, Filene's again and it was a Dior design. I copied that to a teen.The gown is guipure lace and silk peau de soie purchased at Saffler's. I'm sure many from Massachusetts remember Safflers. It was quite the fabric store. I did do a muslin first to get the fit and the collar construction down.

    1. Congratulations, Dawn! How wonderful! I am so glad Kate Middleton brought modesty back to the wedding. I am so tired of looking at gorgeous young women who really would look much better with a bit of coverage. Some of those oozing out wedding pics, oy,,,, but I guess we all want to follow the style.

    1. Hubby has gifted me with a custom designed new wedding ring that will use my original diamond and six other diamonds from a pin that my Dad gave my Mom before he passed. It means so much to me. We had such fun sitting with the goldsmith and working up a custom design. I felt like a new bride again.

    1. I was a child of the sixties and my hair is bone straight and down to below my bum at the time of the wedding. That do took a lot of work! I kept my long straight hair till I hit 32 and went very short. No regrets!

  32. You are a beautiful bride and so happy. I would not have begun to think about making my own dress - it's beautiful. I was married the same spring. Boy, we looked so young! I guess that's because we were!

  35. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your talent. I'm a new reader, back into sewing now that my children are grown and I'm determined to master my craft the correct way. I do regret not continuing to sew for my daughters once they were no longer toddlers. I let my fears win and didn't learn what I needed. Not this time. Thanks again.
