This is my mum and my grandpa Birger. Gramps was obviously not attending the wedding (or so I assume, concindering his outfit) but gladly posed with his beautiful daughter in law, my mamma. I wont call it beauty and the beast, but there sure is a wee bit of a style difference going on. :)
And then a picture of the good looking couple.
Fast forward 42 years and here is the dress again. My mom mentioned it to me on Sunday and after a quick trip to the basement I found myself inside it. The daisies have faded but other than that the dress is still in great condition. And it fits like a glove! So it has changed it's address from my parents basement to my closet. As my dad told my mom: "Solveig will keep it safe untill you want to wear it again".
I'm attending a wedding in August and maybe it's time the dress gets a little outing again. :)
