Hey, it's SHOW ME WEDNESDAY!!
Hazelruthe's is hosting "show me your wedding dress" this week.
Randy & I were married Aug. 25th, 1979. And after all these years, I still wouldn't change a thing about that day. (Ok, so maybe Randy's white tux would have to go) But I loved our wedding! And I especially loved my dress. I still love it! I remember it costing $100.00 from Diamonds on Central here in Phoenix. It was the first dress I tried on. It was perfect. It still fits me, but after carrying my 3 kids high, it's rather tight around the rib cage area.
Ok, all you young whipper-snappers out there, get this... our entire wedding cost $600.00! I know, hard to believe, but true. I have all the receipts to prove it. Randy's tux, his ring, the flowers, cake, everything! Randy's brother Barry was our photographer and my wedding band was Randy's Mamaw's ring when she married in 1914. And my sister Kathy made the bridesmaid dresses. Oh, and about those bridesmaid dresses... I'd like to think I was quite the trend-setter back then because my bridesmaid dresses were just below the knee. You see, I am so dang practical that I wanted to be sure my girls got to wear their dresses again. And again they did! My sister Ginny gave me her dress and I wore it for years!
