Wedding Blog Party

I am late for the Wedding Party, but hope you forgive me.My things are packed up in my husband's house and I couldn't get to them.
The first picture is my wedding ring (forgive the hands that work hard)

This is the real dress I got married in. I was a flower child and the oldest girl in our family, but for reason I won't go into, my mother would not pay for a wedding, but someday, I am hoping to have a real one on my 40th or 50th anniversary if all goes well with me and Al.

This is a wedding cake I made for my Parents 25th anniversary. I used to make cakes for special occasions, but it got to be very hard on the back.

The dress below is one I found at a thrift store and who knows, maybe I can fit into it someday.
I am sorry I didn't have more with me to share but I do have some cute things that I have collected over the years from wedding cards to wedding wrapping paper. It's just something about not being a real bride that gets to my heart. Love and hugs, Pat

Hi Pat,
Looks like I'm the first to comment. Sounds like we have something in common! I didn't wear the traditional white gown either and my Mum gave me some hassles when it came to my wedding. Your cakes are just beautiful! You have made some beautiful creations! I invite you to stop by and see my wedding story too.

Honey, as long as you and the groom are there that is ALL that ever matters. Beautiful ring.

So nice to meet you.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Dear Pat, I'm sooo glad you were able to join us for the WEDDING BLOG PARTY! Your rings are BEAUTIFUL!! Mine are similar, only in white gold and not NEARLY as large a middle stone as yours! Love your wedding dress ~ bet you were adorable in it! You've just GOT to send me a pic of you in it when you come across it. The cakes you've made are beautiful, especially that gorgeous creation for your parent's 25th wedding anniversary. I've always wished I could make and decorate cakes, but my talent doesn't lie in that department. Sweet cake toppers you've shared ~ you KNOW how much I love those! I hope you will someday soon get to have exactly the kind of celebration that you so deserve. Praying that you will soon be feeling better also.

Are you kidding about having a little flower girl from McDs?!?!

Love you,
Angelic Accents

G'morn, Pat ~ Oh, how I remember those 'love child' weddings in Monterey, San Francisco & Big Sur ... the jumper dresses, flared pants ... so free & happy ...

I love your memories & treasures. Your ring is absolutely gorgeous.

Have a lovely summer's eve ~
