Dressing the Bride: Another Something Old

Growing up I was frequently told I looked like either my mom or my dad (it depended on which parent I was standing next to at the time). As you know I'm wearing her dress at our wedding. It's one of our "Something Old"s.

We'd initially had this idea that I'd leave the venue in my wedding dress. After the final fitting and my first corset fitting, this idea was left in the dust. The dress is much easier to get into than out of. I need at least two people, with three preferred, to assist. New idea... A getaway outfit.

I asked my mom if she had any photos of her getaway outfit. Her answer? Even better - she still had the dress! And the color? Navy! One of our wedding colors.

Here's a photo of my mom and dad at my dad's brother's wedding.
Here I am in my mom's getaway dress. I love that it's got an empire waist (see my last Dressing the Bride post). I'm shorter than my mom, so I think I'll need to shorten the dress by 2 to 3 inches, but other than that what do you think? Even if it isn't the dress I wear for my getaway, it will be making an appearance.

Have you found an unexpected "Something Old"? What are you doing for your "Something Old"?
