To many people this may seem strange but after attending the school for eight years I could not wait until I got to be the girls walking out the front doors of the school in a long white dress. As the high school I attended was from girls ages pre-k through 12 it is a great tradition that all of the graduating seniors receive a beautiful bouquet of red roses from a second grader on your way into the ceremony. The parade out of the front of the school was truly a bridal fashion show with only two girls having a duplicate dress. Take a look at the photos from that day:
Yes, you read that correctly, the one time I wore a wedding dress. Yes, it was a wedding dress. No, it was not my wedding. No, it was not even A wedding. This was my high school graduation where all 54 girls receiving diplomas paraded infront of a New Englad mansion in wedding dresses. The ceremony did include a mass, but the similarities with a traditional wedding end there. Many of the young ladies walking with me not only did not have a boyfriend but they attended prom by themselves, as they did not even KNOW a boy! In some ways can consider their to be a whole bunch of brides and no grooms.
Congratulations to my entire graduating class! I can not believe it has been years since I have seen some of you and I hope everyone is doing well!
Have you ever been to a wedding style graduation?
