94-year-old Woman Finally Tries On Dream Wedding Dress That Was Once Forbidden

There was a time, not that long ago when women of color were not allowed in clothing shops. For one woman in particular this meant that even on her wedding day, she couldn’t go shopping for her dream wedding dress.

It wasn’t until she was 94 years old, that she was able to rewrite her history.

How many young girls dream of their wedding dress long before even meeting their husbands? The answer is many. The wedding dress is a staple in the dream wedding fantasy. It’s meant to make the bride feel the most beautiful she has ever felt, as she transitions into a new chapter of her life.

It’s symbolic of her coming of age, as she leaves her innocent childhood behind and starts her own family. Yet not all women get the opportunity to wear one.
