I have all my parents pictures and their rings because neither of them wanted any of it. My mom kept her dress for a long time but she finally sold it when I told her I would never wear it. When I started planning this wedding, my mom actually told me she was a little dissapointed I couldn't wear her dress, she is crazy she had a hippie dress from the 70's

    Christine, I'm a little disappointed you didn't keep your Mom's dress as well, would have been a great photo of you in it to share with us.. :-)

    I will scan some pics of my parents yellow and brown 1977 wedding, my dad wore a brown tux and my mom's bridesmaids had bright yellow dresses that remind me of daffodils, hence why my mother has nothing to do with colors for my wedding.

      My mom's dress was a knee-length, simple dress - I probably could have worn it! But since my parents are divorced, not sure that it's quite the memory I'd hoped!

        yes my parents are divorced so I think anything related to their wedding could be bad luck, that is why even though they told me to melt down the gold and use the diamonds from their rings I can't do it for my e-ring because I feel like that might be bad luck.

          Janet, I'm trying to see if I can have my ex-MIL or ex-husband scan one in for me. I gave them all the wedding pictures.

            lol - have they asked you WHY you want this?

            random question. was your divorce a "friendly" divorce? seems like it must have been, but thought i'd ask. mine definitely was - we're still friends!

            i know sarah's wasn't - and understandably so!

              Ok so kind of off topic, I have pics from my FSIL last wedding that my fiancee & I went to in the Bahamas, which they are no longer together. And we have some great pics of us.. and of course we have wedding day pics. I want to be sensitive to her current relationship but, we have some really pretty pics of that week!

              Now my question is, should i delete all those pics. Even the ones with us in them. I mean i moved them from the MY PIctures folder on my computer, so when the screen saver goes on they dont show up!

              what are your thoughts?

                I obviously don't konw the details of your FSIL's relationship, current or past, but I have no problem with "old" photos of my first marriage. It was a happy time, I don't regret it, and I hope that people aren't afraid to look back to that time and remember the good parts. I don't want to pretend like it didn't happen - ya know?

                But I do think I might be in the minority. I don't know how many divorced girls want to see pics of their ex and all that. It's a good question. Are you comfortable asking your FSIL how she feels?
