Wedding Dresses with

Today's post is sponsored by  Check out Cocomelody for an impressive assortment of wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses and other gowns.

This weekend we are celebrating my Mom and Dad's 40th wedding anniversary.  They were married on a beautiful fall day on Sept. 20th, 1975 in small town Saskatchewan.   Mom grew up in Marcelin, where they were married, and my Dad's hometown, Shellbrook is just 20 minutes away.  There weren't any destination wedding dresses or beach wedding dresses during the 70s, at least not for their crowd, (my Mom was only 17 and Dad was 20) so the affair was definitely nothing fancy. In fact, my Grandma sewed all the bridesmaid dresses.
Much has changed since their wedding day, most notably the fashion.  So I thought it would be neat to do today's post in honour of their great accomplishment.
If it were my vow renewal, I'd be all over getting to pick out another dress, my mom likely would not. So let's play "What Deena would pick if she got to dress her Mom".

I think this dress is very classy and simple.  It would be my number one choice for her.

My number two pick would be this stunning dress.  I love how flowy the skirt is and the simple ribbon around the waist

My third pick is this cute dress.  I love the length which makes it feel less formal than a long gown, and the lace overlay is beautiful.

Same idea with my fourth pick: simple and pretty and nothing way to fancy.  My mom hates being the centre of attention, so that's why I think this one would work.

Okay, my last pick may be for me.  I would totally wear this for my vow renewal.  I love everything about it!

Regardless what Mom picks, I know she will be a stunning 40 years later bride and I can't wait to see all our family and friends gathered to celebrate their big day.  If you're planning a big day, make sure you check out Cocomelody and see if they have anything for you.  There's a great sale on right now!
