I wanted to let my girls try on my wedding dress, and I thought that our anniversary was the perfect day. The girls loved fingering the little pearls and beads. I loved taking pictures of my precious girls, who are growing up so very fast.
I am happy to have a few heirlooms to pass on to my girls. Only time will tell if either of my girls will want to wear this dress in their own weddings. However, it is nice to have something special to share with them if they choose to use all or part of it. It is amazing some of the alterations that can be made to dresses.
The dress was huge on both girls. Little Red Ridinghood could not walk in the dress and fell over in a heap of satin. Imagine if I had taken the train down. Goldilocks was shy, quiet and calm in the dress. This is the polar opposite of her usual self. She is my tomboy who loves to climb trees, race boys and is often loud.
My girls! I love those little bare toes sticking out from under that very formal wedding dress. That picture reminds me so much of the little girl inside all of us busting to run free at times. My other dd, who is on the cusp of puberty, is not yet developed (the dress just make her look that way) and just beginning to leave little girlhood behind.
