On Mother’s Day I went to my grandmother’s house with my family for dinner. We got there a little bit early and looked through a few family photo albums. All of the photos were wonderful. I love hearing stories about our family history while looking through these albums.
After looking at pictures of my great-grandparents, my grandma decided to get out my great-grandmother Nana’s wedding dress. I am so glad that she did and that she let me take a few photos.
My great-grandparents got married in July of 1928.
I instantly fell in love with the dress and all of the details that it has. I adore most anything with lace and I think that this is just beautiful.
I also love the black stitching on the cream fabric.
The dress has little snap closures along one side with a clasp at the waist.
I am so glad that we were able to take a look at this and listen to stories about my family. It is amazing to me to think about the significance of this one dress. My great-grandparents, Nana and Papa, were wonderful people that provided a great example of love and marriage. It is incredible to look at all of my family members that I love dearly and to think that we are all here because of the love shown on the day that this dress was worn.
