My summer project this year was a book about dresses. I drew ten of my favorite dresses from movies and wrote a paragraph on each.
This, you may remember, is Harriet’s wedding dress in “So I Married an Axe Murderer.”
I did not remember.
I remembered the dress but not the movie. I could see that hood very clearly in my mind. I could remember to pose and the posture and the flowers and the brooch...but I could not remember where the dress was from. I convinced myself that it was from the scene in “Four Weddings and Funeral” where Andie McDowell’s character tries on a series of dresses...but it was not.
I took to googling things like “movie wedding dresses” and “hooded wedding dress” and I still could not find it. But finally I was looking at a slide show about costumes and there it was.
I still think it's an exceptionally pretty and interesting wedding dress.
