Yesterday I decided it was time to take my wedding gown in for preservation.
Since I won't be able to touch it or look at it outside of a box ever again, I took the opportunity to say goodbye and snap a few pictures before I brought it to the preservation specialists.
This was my dream gown -- A strapless silk satin A-line gown with a sweetheart neckline. Bodice and hem accented by Alencon lace from France. Alencon "eyelashes" lined the neckline of the bodice.
The hem also incorporated my favorite element -- a pleated silk satin ruffle. (I wasn't kidding when I told you I love pleats!)
I'll miss you, gown! You made me feel more beautiful than I have ever felt, the way gowns are supposed to make their brides feel. If Christian and I have a daughter some day, I hope that she'll want to wear you on her wedding day. Until then, I must bid you au revoir. I hope to see you again -- outside of a box -- in anywhere from 25-35+ years!
