From our local paper
When I was young the variations
For those important celebrations
Involved 'Will the sleeves be long or short?
Home-made or (daring) will it be bought?'
We always knew it would be white.
Any other colour would not seem right,
For we were all virgins ( I know that's true)!
So only the purist white would do.
The slightest touch of blue or pink
Would make the neighbours nudge and wink!
But times have changed an awful lot!
This local lady is tying the knot!
Her wedding dress is rather brief!
About the size of a handkerchief!
And she certainly isn't wearing white!
No remarks! It's not polite!
Modern but regal here:
