wedding gown wednesday

hello to all the lovely people!
i can't believe its already wednesday. i have had two really long days, but still, this hump day creeped up pretty quickly! i feel like time is really rushing by me and i wish i had more...because i truly need it. -but, don't we all? 
wouldn't it be nice if time could just stand still for one hour each day for you to do WHATEVER pleases you?!
ooh! that would be so lovely! then, i bet we would want 2 hours...because we are never satisfied...lol 
...................................................................................................................................................................
anyways, so...wedding gowns...{!!!!}
my inspiration for this week is my boyfriend's mama, sweetie
she got married in...i'm gonna take a wild guess here and say...1977 [give or take a year or so...lol]. 
there are many interesting facts about her wedding: 
she had a double wedding with her sister, flora and it was really pretty. double weddings are not something that you see very often. they each had their own bridal party and managed to pull it off well .
during the reception, each bridal party had their own side of the giant hall and since their families were so large and all knew each other, it was like a huge family get-together. the pictures are great!
so...her dress...
it was an A-line gown, with a v-shaped neckline, long sleeves & great lace detail. my favorite part is the lace!!!
i see her wedding picture every time i visit their home and it is so nice to look at because it just takes you there, to that time. 
it truly holds the essence of that decade! 
there were many variations of brides during that time, but sweetie was definitely the representation of your classic 70's bride. 
her look was soft & pretty with flowy hair and just simple youthful elegance. it was prefect.
can you believe she still has it sealed in a box?!  
 it is GORGEOUS! 
here are some pics...enjoy! =)


be inspired.
now, don't get any ideas...i know what you're thinking! lol
