Here comes the bride again and again and look again Part 1

What does Nelly do when she is feeling down and miserable?Why she gets dressed up in her wedding dresses of course.And coz there are so many she has to have 2 parts.
So here I am in part 1.Most of the dresses wouldnt do up on me, so sad.
This was the Boho post with the 70s wedding dress and I knew Id be doing more and today was the day.
(click pics to make larger some are off centre when I publish)

My 1980s does the 50s dress Lifeline a few months back

Mother of the bride.Dress ?? The captain even liked this one and he never comments usually.Forgot to tummy suck tho.ha
Vintage screw in earings


Think this was lifeline Stanthorpe a few years ago.





LL found me a new old clothes rack that wanted in on pics please ignore
My 1st 1950s dress





My last 1950s dress


buttons all the way down the back the poor groom!!!





Bought at Vinnies a few years ago lady had just bought it in had worn it at her wedding in the late 80s early 90s
Plain and simple Miss 10 didnt like this one.


Not sure where this one came frombut the near naked pageboy is cute

But I like it alot

Probably the top one, 1980s/50's? I love me a bit of tulle. Tam x

Vintage Vixen said...

You know me, I'm not really a wedding fan but I'm liking the plain and simple number. I'd cut the sleeves off it and dye it acid yellow. xxx

Catherine said...

Hi Nelly..great way to perk yourself up! Love the 50's one too. I think that the dresses (bridal & otherwise) must have ALL run off to England...seem to be less & less here. Haven't found a good one for ages! Have a better week. Much love Catherine. And I do love the naked page boy : )

Vintage Sunday said...

Wow, fancy having that many happy mementos of all those ladies' special days! You ought to start a little museum! The last dress is lovely.

Oh my goodness - what a collection! I quite like the 60s-y looking second one. On someone else though - I'm too pear shaped for that kinda thing!
