Worst Bridesmaid's Dress Competition

I made the paper last week. Both photo and story. Check it out.

I took part in the opening celebration of a new exhibit at the History Center called "Happily Ever After," about love and marriage in Minnesota. For the day, I wore a replica of an 1890s wedding dress and helped judge an ugly bridesmaid's dress competition. About eight women entered dresses they had worn or friends had worn in weddings from the 1970s to the 1990s.

Some bridesmaid's dresses were truly hideous but were probably considered the height of fashion when they were worn. You can imagine how carefully each bride selected them to make a lasting impact on the audience. I just wonder if the marriages lasted as long as the dresses.
