The Wedding Dress

This is my post for Sian's Storytelling Sunday- read more stories here.
DD1 searched for weeks for a wedding dress.....she searched shops....second hand shops......charity shops......and finally found just what she was looking for on Ebay.
A wedding dress.....with underskirt.....veil.....and gloves......brand new with tags......all for just £25......a real bargain.
Doesn't she look lovely
So when is the wedding??

Well......not any time soon....unless you count going to a Halloween party on a boat on the River Thames as a zombie bride!!!
But she did apparently get 4 proposals of marriage!!!!
And had a lot of fun.

£25? Brilliant value for a wedding dress and not bad for a costume either

So glad you had the before and after photographs. They would make a great lay-out, I agree.
Your daughter made a fabulous zombie bride.

Margi said...

what an awesome party and how fun to be a Zombie bride, my daughter went retro this year and was the pink power ranger! LOL She loved Power Rangers coming up!

Sian said...

How clever is that?! I'm not surprised about the proposals - she makes a fabulous zombie bride lol Brilliant story for November Jacky and, as Irene syas, it's great to see the before and after pictures. Definitely well worthy of a layout!

Brilliant story and clever idea for a fancy dress. I hope whoever's dress it was doesn't see what she did to it lol.

humel said...

Oh my word - I thought I'd missed some major news then, but when I scrolled down I discovered what it was all about! She looks amazing in both versions :)

Miriam said...

Brilliant! beautifully told in words and pictures! ...and she looked fabulous.

Cheri said...

I almost gasped when I saw the red being painted on that gown! But honestly, I think it suits her better that way! :)

Angelfish said...

Very cleverly done Jacky. What a great zombie bride your DD made.

Abi said...

Alison said...

Mel said...

I was tricked too - a great twist and a great costume!

Lisa-Jane said...

Great set of photos, what a fab layout that will be! I wonder if it was hard to put the first daub of pain on? I did it to one of DH's work shirts yesterday for my son's costume and that was hard enough! Great layouts from Shimelle's class too!

Becky said...

Brilliant! She looks great. Hope you are going to scrap those photos!

Karen said...

Wow! I was totally unprepared for that outcome! Brilliant costume!

S said...

Oh you set me up for that one. Thanks for sharing! And yes, she is "quite something".

Melissa said...

Looks like a fun zombie party - great storytelling!!

Maria Ontiveros said...

Oh my gosh!!! You had me going there! You presented that so well; I feel like standing up and applauding.
Have a great week,
Rinda

Scrappi Sandi said...

I too thought I'd missed something & I am so impressed with that fancy dress costume/makeup!! They all look amazing & like they were having a ball!! TFS :D

Chipper said...

That was a great twist! She did a marvelous job on the costume ... I shall have to remember that one :)

Just catching up with Sunday's stories ... and this is a good 'un! Love that she made her outfit special rather than spent that £25 on hiring one.
