It's still wedding season...

...it's still wedding season at our house...

We just got our wedding album...
and I love it!


Here are some of the pictures inside





The only problem is we have no where to display our album in this house...
plus, it's white so I'm scared it will get dusty and dirty 
What to do?  What to do?
Tell me, do you have your album displayed or is it tucked away in your storage closet?

Today, the lovely UPS man brought me my wedding dress today...
I shipped it all they way up to NYC to be cleaned and preserved by the J. Sheer & Co.
They've been on the Martha Stewart Show 
fancy, fancy
My wedding dress was FILTHY!
I mean, it was a hard night of partying!!!

T asked me what in the world I was going to do with my dress now that we've spent a small fortune to have it cleaned...I said it would probably just sit in the box for the next 30 years...


They send you white gloves to wear when you take it out...
I told you it was fancy :)


 


They did such a good job cleaning the sash
By the end of the night, it was black at the ends

The veil was in pretty good condition because I took it off before I hit the dance floor



The wedding dress was black on the bottom
A lady from the cleaners called me and said, 
"We've tried to repair the bottom of the gown as much as possible, but it was in pretty bad shape"
That is the sign of a good party, I'd say




So, I guess, its now safe to say that wedding season is now over in our house..
I think T is relieved because he said
"Please tell me this is the last wedding thing I have to pay for?!?"

Your album looks beautiful! I have to admit I'm a little jealous of the wedding keepsake books I've seen from the digital age. It's funny, though, our children love looking at our "old-fashioned" album from time to time. I wouldn't worry too much about keeping it pristine on the outside--you obviously know a great cleaner!

Beautiful album! I was so excited when I got mine. I displayed it our coffee table for the first year because I wanted everyone to be able to look at it. However my album was black, I see what you mean about white getting dirty. My dress is still in the box sitting in the attic, who knows when I will bust it out again!

My dress was a black mess at the bottom too. But, like you said, it was a sign that we threw a FABULOUS party!

The album looks amazing. It's is kind of sad to think that you don't get to wear that stunning dress again.

I'm not sure we've "known" each other long enough to share this, but I will anyway...MY dress (a Vera Wang before she became VERA WANG) was never cleaned. For some reason I thought once they were cleaned they had to remain sealed shut otherwise they would yellow...Anyway, iIt still hangs in an upstairs closet and occasionally (like maybe once a year) I slip it on to surprise Jimmy. Not in a romantic way either. He is outside washing the car and it is our anniversary month so I come out wearing the dress -- or he says lets go to the park because it's nice out and I say I'm ready and get in the car wearing the dress -- last year we went out for a swanky anniversary celebration and I came down the stairs wearing the dress.... You get the idea. My children find me hysterically funny. I sort if crack myself up too. I can't do up all the buttons in the back anymore either. Sadly my body is not the size 0 it was when we married. Hope you are laughing and not thinking I'm a total nutcase. Ok, I am a total nutcase, but like you said what else are you suppose to do with the dress??!! xo, Tessa

OMG! Your dress looks great! I need to have mine cleaned and preserved too. Right now it's just hanging in our guest bedroom. I took it and had it professionally cleaned right after the wedding but never preserved it because I knew I was going to wear it again for our photos a year later. Anyway, now it's just hanging and waiting to be preserved.
Your album looks BEAUTIFUL!!! I keep ours out and on display in our formal living room on the coffee table. Everyone loves to look at it and to be honest sometimes I just like to sit down and look at the pictures too. :) It always makes me happy.

GORGEOUS album. We had one like that- so fun! But I don't know where to display it either??! Let me know if you come up with something creative :)

Your dress is gorgeous and I love that the wedding album is white! I think you should leave it out for a while at least because your pictures are great, people should see them!
