In exactly 20 days from today, my oldest daughter is getting married. It's her second
wedding and she and the groom, (Also his second) are doing most of the un-planning from
Florida where they have been living for almost 5 years. They are getting married up here so
all the relatives can make it. He's from one town over.
I am making the wedding gown and it is almost completed except for that last
fitting.........AAAAAIIIIIEEEEEE! I know that it will need to be taken in because I cut it
generously because all the measurements in the world don't mean a thing when it comes to us
women. You may be a size 12 in JC Penney,,,
But in Wal-Mart you're a 14. Of course in the more expensive stores you'd be a 10. And as
for catalogs.....? Anybody's guess.
This is a gown that looks as though Ann Boylen may have worn it.
(Before she lost her head.) Long dripping pointed sleeves and scoop neckline and princess
style. See I know my daughter has a waistline but I'm not sure where it is. This way it
won't matter. It's off-white brocade satin and it's trimmed with plain satin and small
embroidered loops of pearls. The veil is sort of a plain tiara with some pearly flowers and
rhine stones and I'm making that too. (It's a good thing that I don't have to hem the damn
veil or she'd have to put the wedding off until next year!)
My youngest daughter is going to be the Maid of Honor. We had ordered her dress a while
back. Yesterday I called to ask if it had been shipped yet... AAAAIIIIIIIEEEEEE! It's on
back order and might not come in until August 2nd!
So now...I'm making the Maid of Honor dress too. I'm making two of them because we don't
know if she'll like the light turquoise or the pale lavender one. They are both satin with
big drippy sleeves made out of sheer material with either turquoise or lavender sequined
butterflies on it.
Again....I'm guessing on the sizes. Younger daughter doesn't live in Florida but she can't
get up here very often and I can't get to her because I have to be here for the Troll's
I'm wearing BLACK! I've worn it before at a wedding and this one has a sheer top with bright
pink sequinned butterflies.
Ain't it wonderful how the guys get to make one trip to the tuxedo rental place and that's
A June Wedding......want to place your bets on how hard it will rain that day?
