Seniors share stories of their weddings at bridal show


Eau Claire (WQOW) - As the saying goes, something old, something new. At Dove Healthcare's bridal show today, that something was memories.

The fashion show was a "reminiscing event," designed to get the residents to talk about fond memories from their own weddings. Residents watched models show off some of the latest bridal fashions and shared some stories from their own weddings.

"I actually wore my mothers wedding dress, and she had made it forty years before that," Susan Olson said, a Dove Healthcare resident.

"I had a home wedding and I wore a suit. We had a huge, huge snow storm and we were wondering if we were even going to be able to have the wedding. But, it turned out a beautiful day that day and we could go outside with no coats on," Leona Strong said.

Dresses were donated by The Bridal Shoppe in Eau Claire, and the models were volunteers from UW-Eau Claire's American Marketing Association.
