Mine is hanging in the closet next to my mother's. Mine was not a gown, but a tea length lace dress. My mom's was a silk sheath dress, below the knee with a bolero jacket. I also have the dress my mom wore to my wedding. What in the heck I'm going to do with them I have no idea.Originally Posted by prhoshay;2442559;
I doubt my daughter would want to wear mine and no way would she ever fit into my mom's (mom weighed 99 pounds when she got married), but I thought that it might be nice to take both dresses and use them to make my daughter's dress when the time comes. If not, then I dont' know.
I also have my christening gown, my daughter's christening gown, her going home outfit, her first Christmas and Easter dresses and both flower girl dresses she wore. Why I'm keeping those is beyond me as well. I am a pack rat is probably why.
But hubby has his army field jacket and a shirt he wore in highschool that has a big mushroom painted on it. So I'm not the only one hanging on to crap.
And he pulled a shirt out a couple months ago to wear and I said: do you realize I gave you that shirt our very first Christmas together, so that makes it 20 years old? He said: It's still a good shirt. (maybe, but a LOT out of style! )
Oh and I have my wedding cake topper, champagne toasting glasses, cake knife and server and my wedding bouquet still. My bouquet was silk and it still looks pretty good, so it's in a vase on the piano.
I probably need a good intervention to clean out my closets!
