“For my wedding in May 2010 I had not one, not two, but three dresses, from three generations.
In April of 2010, I tried on the dresses I would wear for my wedding one last time. We were one month away and we had to make sure they would fit. Grandma was in the hospital, and would not make it to the wedding, neither would her dress, but I did get some pictures in it. I wore the “Bride Barbie” dress that my Mom was married in for the ceremony, and changed into a dress bought specifically for me to the reception.”
I decided that I would do a simple page about the dresses I wore to my wedding. This page took me about 2.5 hours to do, because I kept messing up putting the frames on, and I forgot to save after I had just figured out something, meaning that I lost a half hour of work.
I also took forever trying to see what I wanted to use on the page. I didn’t want to go overboard with embellishments, but I also didn’t want to have a plain, boring page. It was difficult at first to figure out paper and such to use that would tie in 3 generations of dresses. I wanted something that seemed like it has been added to over the years, so it seemed older, antique, but that there were new elements put in more recently.
I think I managed, and I’m very proud of this page. I look forward to digging in to my next page.
