Vintage Wedding Dress Fashion Show

Last month, a friend asked if Maddie would like
to be in a vintage wedding dress fashion show
called Unboxed Memories?
Hmmm -- sounds interesting, doesn't it!
Maddie agreed, tried on a dress and we pretty much
forgot about it since it was at least 6 weeks off.



Well, those 6 weeks zipped right by (just like summer break has done)
and last weekend it was time for the
fashion show!

The show was being put on by a local church as a fundraiser
for scholarship money for women.
The chance to wear a pretty wedding dress and help raise
money for women -- that's what I call a win/win situation!

Maddie and Annie -- sneak peek at the beautiful brides
they will be someday far, far off in the future!
Maddie's friend from cheerleading, Annie, was also in the 
fashion show.  The dress Maddie wore was from 1973 - so not terribly 
old or vintage.
 There was also a flapper wedding dress and dresses from 1909, 1912, 1920's, 
1930s and every decade.
They also had a futuristic dress!  
I think I'll stick with vintage!

It was a very popular fundraiser
 (I was surprised by how many people were there)
and I'm sure they collected
a good sum for scholarship purposes.
Definitely not something that was on the bucket list for summer -
but it was a great experience and so fun to have a teensy little
peak at Maddie and Annie as brides way off in the future.
