I‘VE still got my wedding dress folded up in a special box, that lives underneath my bed.
I dabbled with giving it to charity or perhaps dying it and shortening it so I could wear it again, but in the end I decided to keep it, just in case I ever had a daughter.
And guess what? I did.
Whilst I certainly don’t expect Elsie to want to wear my wedding dress if she ever does get married, I kept it because I thought she might perhaps like to try it on in years to come or just look at it.
Or that she may even be able to take some of the lace from my dress and use it for something, one day.
And if I was in any doubt that keeping it for my daughter wasn’t the right thing to do, this video confirms that I made the right choice.
Here are a lovely bunch of daughters trying on their mum’s wedding dress (and some priceless reactions).
