Sincerely 'Fro Me to You- Miniature Brides

Welcome to this week's Sincerely 'Fro Me to You Carnival. If you want to join in, you can read the guidelines here

I grew up going to church.  The same church my entire childhood.

It was average size, but small enough where everyone knew everyone else's business. 

My sister and I were the only set of twins in the church.   And of course, this was before multiples and fertility drugs were so common. 

So, we were special.  (At least we thought so.)

The youth pastor and the pastor's daughter decided to marry.  They were special and so they needed something special for their special wedding.  

I'll never forget the day my sister and I were asked to be in their huge wedding.  We were going to be miniature brides.  Because we were special.

The bride ordered our matching dresses, miniature replicas of her dress.  I remember they were $100 each, a small fortune even now.


Even with  my 'fro, I felt like a wedding cake topper:  Perfect.  

We were a hit at the wedding.  So much so, that we became the hottest wedding accessory!  Everyone asked us to be in their wedding.  I mean, if one is cute, two is adorable!

And, we already had the adorable mini bride dresses!  See?  We were asked again and again!



Sincerely,
'Fro Me

Show me what you got!

Yes, a wedding cake topper you are! :)

Tammy said...

Wow, oh wow! Those dresses are, well, umm, I can't think of any words to describe them.

I'm gonna have to sift through some photos tomorrow, and hopefully play again this week. I love Thursday!

Well Behaved Krissy said...

omg hilarious must be nice to be a novelty item.

Alicia said...

Oh, dear. I see what I have to look forward to! My daughters' egos would inflate to monstrous proportions!

Twice Blessed said...

I wonder if Reese and Tate will be automatic flower girl and ring bearers in the future????

The Apron Queen said...

Oh my! Why didn't I think of that when I got married! Those curtains & the wood paneling are killing me too! I "cheated" & just shared our kittens this week. Hey, they'll never see the inside of a photo album.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day trip.

For your daily dose of vintage goodness & a bit of silliness, stop by Confessions of an Apron Queen, the home of Vintage Thingies Thursdays.

Wow! I am speechless. Those are SOME dresses!

P.S. He loves you... said...

Two is better than one!

How fun!

and I think you look allot like your mom whom I'm guessing is a brides maid in the second photo?

Crayl said...

Twin wedding fun abounds!

Valarie said...

Let me see if I can guess this right. You were on the left in the first photo, and on the right in the second. Because I think it looks just like your oldest.

That is so funny though, that it seemed to be all the rage to have the twins in your wedding party. Y'all were a hot item. :o)

jennifer said...

Aren't you somethin' in your red lace jr. bridesmaid attire!

I got to be the bride once and never a Bridesmaid. Maybe if there had been two of me.....

jennifer said...

OH! And I want to play along but it will probably be late tomorrow if I get to at all. I'll come back over and "Mr. Linky" if I do. Love this Blog Activity!

Ok, Where Was I? said...

That's weird! I mean, it's cute and funny, but it's weird. In fact, even just one miniature bride is kind of unusual. But what do I know, I haven't been to a wedding in ages.

Amanda said...

Miniature brides are disturbing, but I'm glad you got to be the hot ticket item. (Even if that fact makes the fact that you were a miniature bride slightly less disturbing.)

I really never understood the difference between a miniature bride and a flower girl. Can you clarify?

Lisa said...

Um...were you over at my house in the second pic?- 'cause that carpet and paneling look familiar. And it looks like you may have borrowed my shoes, too! :)

Jane @ Kidzarama said...

Wedding celebrities... Very cute!

marky said...

OH you are so adorable!! How long did this wedding appearance last? I wanted to be a twin, remember the double mint gum commercial with the twins, I wanted to be that! LOL. Love the pics!

THopgood said...

Are you identical twins? It's difficult to tell in the photo?

Love the photos. I always wonder why these old photos look kinda orangey...or is it just me?

JamieLee said...

Cute, in an eerie sort of way! Why did every living room look EXACTLY the same back then?

Bahama Shores Mama: said...

Wedding cake topper......you are adorable!

But I must know what in the heck that second pic is about? Why did someone take a picture of a grown woman fondling another's foot? LOL!

Thanks for hosting again!

Darla said...

Do you still have those lovely dresses?? (said with tongue in cheek) I'll bet your daughter would love to play dress up in them.

They are special, that's for sure.

It All Started With a Kiss said...

Wow, the red ones are, um, interesting. I think you both stole the bride's show! Ha!

Memarie Lane said...

I'm so jealous, I always wanted to be in a wedding when I was little. I finally got to be a bridesmaid when I was 20, and it was very anticlimactic.

Suzie said...

Thats a great memory and you guys looked wonderful

Tanya said...

My mom just brought me my miniature bride dress from my stint as a flower girl. I have to say, your dresses were slightly more attractive than mine! :) I'll have to see if I can dig mine out for one of these. In the meantime, I've posted a different blast from the past on my site.

Becky said...

Why is it that when we are asked to be in a wedding, no matter if we are 2 or 42, our hair has to be some unique contortion that can never quite be "in" but is not bad enough to be out?

Oh, and baby's breath...lots of it jammed in your braids is another flower girl accessory.

Ok, Where Was I? said...

Thanks--I have no idea how to delete a link up there, so I just added another like a big dope. This is a great carnival idea--fun to read all the posts.

Amanda said...

LOL those pictures our classic!!! Your kids are so gonna hate you when you pull that sand dollar trick on them. I still can't believe my mom did that, but you know, it's good laughs now. I was SOOOOOO MAD!

Okay as for making your blog into a book. Go to www.blurb.com

They have a program that works with blogger. It's the coolest thing ever!!!! I can't wait to get my first book. My husband doesn't read my blog because he's waiting to read it when it's in a hard cover book.

Heather said...

Wow, and I thought I had some, um, interesting bridesmaid's dresses! You are hot to trot in those red numbers!

Dee said...

cute pictures! I'm sure you got asked because you were well behaved too, you look like angels!

:)

Our Crooked Tree said...

I was thinking debutants and cloggers ☺ Super cute either way!

marigold said...

Very cute, in a "I'll be talking about this in therapy or on my blog" kind of way! Love the plastic fans in the 2nd photo!

franticallysimple said...

Those red dresses could have been used for clogging after the wedding. Or even at the reception. Entertaining for all!

Worlds Greatest Mommy said...

Adorable!

I hope you were paid well for all your wedding appearances!

Seriously, I can totally understand why someone would want you two dressed up at their wedding! Too cute!

Lidian said...

That is really cute - I remember when twins were rare and special! We had twins in my sixth grade class in 1973-4 and oh my, they were celebs!

They were really really nice, too.

I found you through Vintage Thingies Thursday via the Apron Queen, BTW.

Blue Castle said...

Oh, you poor things! You were cute, though. :)

livin with me said...

I'm so sorry! I never liked being in weddings, except my own of course. And $100 for each dress was a lot for a dress "back then."

Ok, Where Was I? said...

I feel bad: I just saw your comment...uh, somewhere...about the other twins in the wedding and you mentioned your comments saying it was weird. And I said that! Uh, so...what I meant was weird in a good way.

Carrie said...

Those dresses were really special times two!

Blessings From Above said...

Love the pictures!!! I ALWAYS wanted to be a flower girl but never got the chance. Lucky you! :)

Loraine said...

I can't help myself.... I am soooo jealous!!! I always wanted to be a flower girl and nobody ever asked me... Guess I should have been a twin! :-)
