Ten years ago today, I wore a Richard Tyler wedding gown, Stuart Weitzman shoes, a tiara and a veil.
At the wedding, my two youngest stepchildren walked our dog, the late Mr. Chubbs, and my parents’ dog, Molly, down the aisle …
…and we had a great cake.
Of course, I just had to know whether I could still fit into the dress. I put it on and gorgeous clothing designer Stacy Lomman took my picture in front of a supermarket, to the confusion of passersby. One woman said into her cellphone, “There’s a bride out here!”
I was so focused on getting a picture of the gown that I completely forgot about the white leather halter and hiphuggers I changed into near the end of the wedding reception.
I wore the leather outfit a second time for MrB’s surprise 60th birthday party in 2002, but I wouldn’t want to try it on again now. I need to do a few billion sit-ups before attempting that!
Happy anniversary to MrB!
Wahoo! Mazel tov on your anniversary, beautiful Wendy!
DAMN GIRL! Still holds up after all these years. 🙂
Awww! So cute! Happy anniversary to you both!
Beautiful dress and that cake is just too fab!

You are the hottest bride ever! Only you can pull off white leather at a wedding. Mr. B is one lucky man!
It’s such a stunning dress. I think you look even more beautiful in it 10 years on!

Wow, that is one sexy wedding dress. Not to mention the most amazing ‘going away’ outfit ever. Happy anniversary! x
Happy anniversary, Wendy and Mr. B!
Wendy, you looked gorgeous then, and you look gorgeous now! I love the simplicity of the dress.
You know I love those white leather pieces – sex-ay!
The Styley says
Happy anniversary! I’m so impressed by the full-on leather suit. And I love the ruching on the back of your wedding dress. I think I’m going through a ruching phase right now.

Wendy, congrats to you and Mr. B on your anniversary and on still fitting into your wedding dress!
oh congrats, Wendy- you haven’t changed a bit!
Happy anniversary! Wow, that’s impressive you could still fit into your dress from 10 years ago!! You’re such an inspiration!
Is it just me or are you getting younger?
I love those doggies and that leather number, phwoar! x
Happy Anniversary to you and Mr. B! Long may you wave (or, cross your legs and put your hands on your hips).
The anti-spam word was queen!
So either I’m 10 years behind, or the ruching on the back of the dress (butt area) is still in / classic – my wedding dress has it! Everything else is very different than yours, which is, of course, a good thing, as your dress is fabulously you! (and hopefully mine is fabulously me – the post on it goes live on Monday). Congratulations!
Can’t wait to see yours!
I love post like this. What a gorgeous dress.
Gorgeous as always Wendy 😉

I went over to your Mr.Chubbs post and almost cried, it’s so sweet. Happy anniversary, you picked the right fella!
Congratulations! You looked fabulous back then and you look fabulous now. To many more happy years!
That was fun! And I actually meant to ask you about the leather outfit! We’re trying that on next week — I’ll be happy to snap some pics.

Yowza~! Happy Anniversary, Wendy! You’re gorgeous! One day I’ll find the little wizard you keep, because you haven’t changed a bit. ;D That leather outfit though steals the show in my opinion. Incredibly badass and a million cool points to you.
Happy Anniversary! The cake looks too good to eat.
Oh congratulations Wendy! I don’t know what’s better! 10 years or still being able to fit into your dress!
And that cake is wonderful! You two sound just as happy together now as you look in these pics!
Happy anniversary to you and Mr. B! You look gorgeous in your wedding dress, both then and now. And damn, that hip hugger outfit is sexay!
Happy anniversary. You look as lovely in the dress today as you did then.
You are SO gorgeous! Happy anniversary.

Happy Wedding Anniversary, Happy Blog Anniversary!! That cake is just friggin’ fantastic!

Suzanne aka Punk Glam Queen says
Happy Anniversary! You looked fab in that gown then as you do now! I have a long skirt that has the same effect in the back (Monique L’Huillier — I think im butchering her name oops!) … Hmm seeing you in your gown makes me want to find an occasion to wear it again! How interesting, I haven’t heard about Richard Tyler in ages (stop dipping into my past again Wendy! (; Heehee!) You just reminded me of a RT suit someone gave me; far too 80s (in that power suit 80s sort of way) and too big but lovely fabric. I need to restyle it for the autumn! New sewing project!
Of course you can still fit into it, missy! Happy tenth to the both of you!
