If you are just joining us, please take a peek at the last two years of prompts by clicking on the Sharing Memories tab at the top of Olive Tree Genealogy blog. You can jump in at any time and you can skip topics that you don't like. There are no rules, it's all about getting your memories down on paper. The prompts are here as a guide to help if you are stuck for ideas.
Share your memories here in the comment section, on your own blog, or privately in a journal you keep at home. The important thing is to record your memories. Just write.
Mind you I did love my gown and the colours I chose - yellow and white. And my best friend was my maid of honour.
And so I was married and off to Quebec for a weekend honeymoon. Then it was back to University for both of us.
My second wedding (16 years after my first) was a much happier one. We chose to have a very small wedding at our home. This time I had purple-blue flowers, and I kept it very simple with one witness. I wore an electric blue dress trimmed in black with a huge black wide-brimmed hat (hey it was the 80s!)
What are your memories of weddings - your own or other family members?
