This is a photo of my husband's Aunt Florence Hooper (nee Elgie) on her wedding day in 1943. The dress and veil Florence wore in 1943 is now in our possession.
On the left is the lovely dress worn by my husband's Aunt Florence at her wedding November 6th 1943. Florence, born an Elgie, married Wilbert Hooper in St. Mary's Ontario Canada.
After her death, her lovely dress and veil came to my husband and we've been debating what to do with it ever since.
Today we decided to donate it to our local theatre group in hopes they can use it in one of their productions.
Below see the Wedding Invitation for Florence and her marriage certificate. It makes a lovely group of family heirlooms and I wish we didn't have to separate the dress from everything else but we cannot care for it properly.
What would you do with a family heirloom like this?
