The reader meets Carolyn a few years after her divorce, as she continues the ongoing process of separting and cleaning out the accoutrements and trappings collected by living in a home once filled with a husband and two daughters, now an empty nest. While putting another carload of trash and treasures together for the local thrift store, Carolyn comes across her wedding dress, still "hermetically sealed" in the box from the dry cleaners 25 years ago. For Carolyn, the box might contain more than her wedding dress: sadness and regrets, recriminations and doubts, but also memories of an innocence of love, the leap of faith, the steps and missteps taken that brings her to an acceptance of the person she is.
"The Wedding Dress" is a well-written short story. Mary Wagner does a fantastic job of taking the reader on a very emotional journey as a woman comes to terms with her past, faces her future and begins to appreciate her journey. The story tapped into family traditions and roots, and it was very moving.
