Mike and I are married 28 years today! We'll be trying out a new Italian restaurant tonight.
This time, 28 years ago, we were at our wedding reception. My bridesmaids wore red and my ushers were in classic black tuxedos--my father said they were 'correct,' LOL! One thing for sure, there were no ruffles. I hate ruffles on a guy's shirt.
I had to laugh when I saw the movie '27 Dresses' and heard the line (several times) 'and you can shorten it and wear it later!' That's exactly what I had in mind when we picked out the pattern for my girls' dresses! But really, they did use them again. It was an empire waist dress in red satin with spaghetti straps. There was a separate piece in sheer red fabric, with long sleeves that was worn over the bodice and closed in the back. It fit over the bodice, which means it was hemmed under the bustline. Can you picture it? It was very simple, yet very elegant.
My gown is up in the attic. Alas, it's been about 27 years since I could fit into it, LOL! (I can't believe I was ever that tiny!)
