Last year, author Donna Guthrie encouraged women to share their wedding gown stories through a national essay writing contest called “THE WEDDING GOWN PROJECT, One Day, One Dream, One Dress.”
So inspired by the entries, Donna began creating a documentary about women’s stories of their wedding gowns. With the help of cinematographer Erin Hudson, she followed women into “dark basements and dusty closets” to locate their treasured dresses and the stories they hold.
Here Donna talks about the projects roots, her own wedding dress story and her thoughts on the fanfare behind the wedding dress purchase. A must read for the bride-to-be on the hunt for her special garment.
