Kelly at Kelly's Korner is once again hosting "Show us your life". This time it's your wedding party.
These were the styles, 39 years ago. The bridesmaids dresses were made from bonded yellow lace, lace was fused onto polyester. The sleeves were full gathered, sheer yellow organza fabric. A scooped neckline and a yellow wide satin belt accented the empire waist.
And yes, I made these too, while I was finishing my last two weeks in high school. Total cost for the 4 dresses was $43.19. That even included the "new" invisible zipper!
The girls carried fresh flower boquets made of dyed green daisies and yellow carnations. I remember them having big thick green leaves as a back ground. I've slept may times since then and don't remember what kind of leaves they were.
The wedding party included, my little sister and BT's little sister. . .my brother Wesley and his wife Linda. My cousin Rick was an usher. BT's sister Janie was maid of honor. BT's cousin Wayne was best man and another cousin, David was usher. Best Man Wayne had dinner with us several months ago. He lives about 150 miles away. It was the first time we had seen each other in years!
And here is a picture that shows it all.
