Wedding Dress

My husband and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary 3 months ago, and I am just now getting around to having my wedding dress cleaned and preserved. I know, I know, it took me long enough! But I had seen some pictures online of little girls in their mother's wedding dresses, and I knew I wanted to do that with Audrey. The thing is, I never got around to it.

Then it was the day the dress was going to the cleaners. We were both sick. Audrey was feverish, fussy and had the sniffles. But I sat her on the floor, put the dress over her, and took about 30 photos in about 3 minutes. They are not perfect by any means, but I am SO glad I took them!

I'm having my dress preserved because I hope that someday, Audrey will want to wear it. I'm not getting my hopes up. If she wants her own dress, she'll have it. But how special will these photos be if she does decide to wear it?!

Anyway, here's a little peak at some of my favorites!

Love this idea! I so wish we had thought to do something like this with our girls and my dress. Mine is still hanging in the closet, it would have been so easy to do, just never crossed my mind. I know you will cherish these pics! She's absolutely a living doll!
