So something completely unexpected happened yesterday.
The auntie who I am living with at the moment said she has my mum’s wedding dress! It’s completely unexpected because my mum said it was thrown out. We moved a lot when I was younger so my mum often gets confused with what happened to certain things we once had, like her wedding dress. In a way I’m quite glad this happened because it makes me treasure it more than I think I would if I had known.
However, it is a bit discolored from all the years in storage but I reckon with a bit of professional cleaning it should be fine. I’m extremely excited, my mum actually doesn’t know we found it yet! It’ll be a nice surprise when my dad returns in a couple of days. I just wished I was there to see her reaction when she finds out.
I never thought I would actually be able to see it and possibly even wear it one day. It’s a wonderful day.
