Do you know someone who was married in the 1930s or 1940s? Do you have your mother or grandmother’s old wedding dress stored away? The Wellesley Fall Fair committee would like to give it a very special airing.
As a fundraiser for the Wellesley North Easthope Fall Fair, some committee members are organizing a fashion show of wedding dresses through the decades. The dresses will date from the 1920s right up to the present, and the show will include bridesmaid, flower girl and mother of the bride dresses.
Wendy Richardson said she first had the idea for a wedding dress show when her daughters were married, and the idea has been turning in the back of her mind since. When she proposed it to the other committee members, they were enthusiastic about the idea.
The dresses will be modeled by the brides themselves, by family and friends, or by models supplied by the organizers.
Richardson said they are still looking for a few more dresses, particularly from the ‘30s and ‘40s. Anyone with a dress available is asked to contact Theresa Bisch at 519-656-2112 or Bonnie Kroetsch at 519-699-4274 before May 1.
