This year Hubby and I will be celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary and yet it still only seems like a few months have passed since we placed our wedding bands onto each others fingers. My wedding dress has been packed away in a box in our garage ever since.
When Hubby went into the garage at the weekend and found a few things had got mildew on them I grabbed the box containing my wedding dress and brought it into the house. What if my dress was covered in mildew too? I know it’s unlikely I will ever wear my dress again (mainly because it won’t fit me) but I would hate for it to be ruined. It wasn’t until today that I finally plucked up the courage to look at my dress which I did with one eye closed. Imagine my relief when I saw that my dress still looked as perfect as the day I married the love of my life!
Since my dress was in the house I decided to take the opportunity to have a lovely mummy/daughter moment, so I asked Little Bean if she would like to see Mummy’s beautiful wedding dress and she said yes. But when I opened the dress she just said “it’s big isn’t it, can I have something to eat now?”. Seriously my heart fell a little, I felt liked I had been smacked around the chops with a wet fish, the moment couldn’t have been any further from how I had imagined it in my head.
Still, it was lovely to see my dress again and reminisce, it’s such a shame we only get to wear them once.
