W is for Weddings

A I worked on an art challenge for Sunday Postcard Art last week whose theme was “June Brides”, I thought about the two women and two weddings depicted in the card.

I used photos of my mother and myself, on the day of our weddings – 52 years apart.

My mother’s wedding gown has a glorious long train and a veil that was borrowed.

My mother was only 21, embarking on a marriage to a widower with a young son. It would be a challenge at times. There would be four other children – two boys and two girls.

At age 50, I was marrying for the second time and I so wanted to look and feel like a princess.

We were blending two families – each of us with three children. We became a real “Brady” bunch.

There will be many weddings in the months ahead. My own daughter will marry in August and she has asked me to walk her down the aisle – what an honour.

May all these brides experience the “love, laughter and happily ever after” that I have.

  1. “Love, laughter, and happily ever after” A wonderful sentiment. I know I found it not once, but twice. I’m fortunate. Your dress and your mom’s were beautiful. If the Husband and I ever do a renewal party, I want to wear a wedding dress. 🙂
