Many Good Things

My Mom and I went today to
the woman who is going to
do the slight changes needed
for my wedding dress.
She was really pleased to see how well
it had been preserved
and is going to make me a veil similar to the one
my Grandma used on her wedding day
and will match the colour to the dress.
(My Grandma does not have the veil as she
had borrowed it).
And I love the colour of the dress;
the ivory, as you can see,
has deepened into a shade
of pale gold.
Satin and shiny, simple, modest;
I am so happy about it.
I also got many errands done with my
Mom today and it is so nice to be getting things done.
Yesterday we got the wedding favours
(Dutch candy) and did registry stuff.
It's so nice to be home and
have family around to do these things with.
Now if I can nail down the catering,
we will have made a lot of progress...

I wish we could see the whole dress but I understand wanting to save it for the wedding! So happy and excited for you!

I'm so glad that it worked out for her to do the dress and that not many alterations need to be done! So excited for you:)

How beautiful that you will be able to wear this dress. I so wish I could have worn my mother's but she was very tiny and I wasn't able to squeeze into it. Perhaps Lucia someday. Blessed feast. And thank you also for sharing the lovely picnic pictures on your previous post. Beautiful.

From what we can see, it looks lovely! I wish we could see more. It must be such a joy to be able to wear a family heirloom.
