A year ago a good friend and I were looking for a costume for her daughter for HS marching band matching trick or treat out fits for her DD's instrument group.
We came across a wonderful wedding gown, absolutely simple yet beautiful, and under 50 bucks, great condition. We talked ourselves out of it, since our DD's are only 16, and neither really dating
. But, over a year, we still mention that dress on occasion. It was just so lovely!
And we might have been snowflake moms to hold onto that dress for several years, keeping it away from a "real" bride with a real date set and a groom, but...I kinda wish one of us had bought it.
But then, who is to say either of our DD's would want it, and we would not force a dress on them. Still, it was...so lovely!
(we did find a costume for friend's DD, and she has some great group photos of her sectional music group.)
I hope whoever did buy it used it for a real wedding (not a Halloween costume) and is very happy with all her special days.
