We’re thinking white dresses at our house!
This was the first white dress daughter Laura wore. A christening gown, first donned by either my grandmother or her twin sister.
The white bunny suit for Halloween doesn’t count as a dress, so next was the Junior Marshall dress. As a prize for good grades, Mom didn’t grump over the price of this Ann Taylor number.
But now Laura is on a quest for the WHITE DRESS OF WHITE DRESSES: her wedding dress.
A clothes person since she could crawl, she has the ring on her finger and the date has been set. Time to do some real shopping!
I began thinking: Which of the three white dresses is my motherly favorite?
The christening gown represents tradition and faith and family.
The white marshall dress represents scholarship and hard work and mall shopping trips with mom.
The wedding dress represents love and future and more family. Laura first swooned over Matt when he was a soccer player at Davidson College. Seven years later, the wedding wagon is rolling along.
I can’t decide which of Laura’s white dresses is my favorite, but there’s just something about a white dress…
What about you? What are the favorite white dresses in your life?
