When in doubt...start from scratch!



I already bemoaned my failed attempts at altering dresses for my wedding on my personal blog so here is the condensed version. Best just to start from scratch. Thanks to some beautiful lace from an old wedding dress from my neighbor, I am almost done with my (final I promise!) wedding dress. It still has a little ways to go before it's finished. I just got really excited though and wanted to post my progress.



I need to find a slip. I was thinking of making a sash in the pale mint that ties in a big bow at the back...too baptism dress? Should I just do a cumber bun type belt, or even an obi sash? Also, I'm not sold on a veil, what are some good alternatives?

Love it! Very classy. I think you should wear a little hat with mesh/net covering your face... not joking.I like the bow sash idea.

I got a birdcage type veil and forgot to wear it. oops. you can use it if you'd like. or some brides look cute with a little crown of flowers (don't picture ren fest). and i don't think a bow is too baptism dress

I was thinking the little hat with netting as well. You could def pull it off! I really love the lace on the dress. It looks gorgeous and the length is perfect! I want to get married again (to the same boy, of course). The styles now are so much cuter than 7 years ago.

Well, I made a cute nursing cover for Amy, but I didn't think to take a picture of it to post. I use to be crafty but my crafty pants have exploded.
