I'm attending the Virginia State Conference for the Daughters of the American Revolution and one of the traditions is that the pages wear white. Many of the ladies wear either their wedding dress or a friends. I've never been married so I went searching.
...like the fact that it doesn't really zip up...
The girl who wore this dress must have been TINY!
*Prior to this, I was totally superstious about buying a used wedding dress for a wedding. Here's what changed my mind*
1.I have had a couple of people give me their wedding dress because they were tired of storing it or they were moving. All of them are still happily married and living a wonderful life
2. The dress could have been purchased for an event. Alot of the women I know purchase wedding dresses for our DAR functions because where else do you find an all white floor length fancy dress?!?!
3. The dress could also be a debutante dress. We had 13 debutantes at our function but I know debutantes are also a part of cotillion. Most of young ladies were wearing wedding dresses.
4. I do not know the story of the wedding dress I selected but after bathing it, fixing it, and protecting it from little buddies and cats alike, it became my dress.
5. If you do not spend a ton of money on a dress, YOU CAN BUY SHOES!!! I am totally in love with these $300 shoes. I need to find someone to marry just so I can buy these shoes! ;)
Not this girl!
Just find a fun function or wear it just because!
