One of my favorite bloggers, Kelly@Kelly's Corner, is hosting "Show us Your Life". Today's edition is the wedding dress. I just could not resist joining in the fun. I LOVE weddings and all the trappings that go with them. I was married at the US Naval Academy 21 years ago and it was one the best days of my life. The chapel is quite impressive and I felt like Princess Diana walking down that aisle.
In 1988 "Dynasty" and "Dallas" were driving much of the fashion of the day. It was a time of big hair and even bigger sleeves. I had a shorter veil and a three foot train. There was beading and lace on the bodice and sleeves as well on the edges of the train. I would wear this dress again today. I love the way it cinched my waist.
My hair was very short at the time. I wore the Dorothy Hamill style for many years.
I have been blessed to spend these past 21 years with my favorite officer and a gentleman. He took my breath away then and still makes my heart race today.
