The Wedding Dress
Laura Sabato – 11th July, 1971
When I entered the church with my dad I was tranquil and certain of my steps. It was hard for my dad to enter that church though as he was a convinced atheist. From the groom to the dyed blue rose I carried in my hands I was convinced of my choices. I had met my husband when I was 12 years old while still playing on the streets. He was a bit older and waited for 10 years to ask me to marry him. My dress is nearly 40 years old and although I am no longer with my husband (we are just friends now) it is still a very familiar garment which I don’t want to get rid of.
