I got mail this morning.

Hello Stanley --
I think this may be of interest. The Victoria & Albert Museum is mounting an exhibition of wedding dresses from 1840 to the present times: decade by decade. The organisers are asking people to submit up to three wedding photos redolent of the times. I have just looked at my wedding photos for the first time in 40 years. I got married in a mini-skirt in the 1960s. Since then I have always regretted not wearing something timeless. Now... all of a sudden... the pix have become a piece of fashion history. I am sure others will want to get in on this V&A endeavour. http://www.vam.ac.uk/things-to-do/wedding-fashion/home. If you agree, perhaps you will launch a new topic.

I'll fish one out. My dress was a bit different , typical early 70's with a lace coat and hood.

My wedding pix are now on the V&A website and a friend is helping me upload the only existing photograph of my parents' wedding: Manchester 1941. The church where they were to have been married was bombed shortly before the big day, so it was a civil ceremony in a registry office. Like me, my mother was always embarrassed about what she wore. But she was coping with wartime shortages, rationing, and etc. In any event I think she looks as though she has stepped out of a Bette Davis movie.
My husband has not been well for a long long time. This exercise with our wedding pix has brought back memories of happier times: always good medicine.

Ducky, interesting reply. Why have I always assumed you were a bloke?

Don't know, Stanley. I should have chosen a more definitive moniker. It seems as though all the babies I come across in this country have names like Carter, Taylor, Chase, Madison... And of course parents don't dress them in pink or blue anymore. So one has to dance around the question of gender until a pronoun shows up.

I spent a week in hospital once, in daily close proximity to a nurse who had a name like "leslie"  and couldn't tell if it was a man or a woman..most perplexing week of my life!

I uploaded a great aunt's wedding photo from 1910.  

The hats the females are wearing are something to behold.

If those ladies had known what women would be wearing 100 years later, smelling salts probably wouldn't have revived them!

I was married wearing long and floaty Laura Ashley, Col wearing the cheapest suit from C&A, cheesecloth shirt and no tie, stack heels and nearly waist length hair.
