Our Wedding: The DressAugust 18, 2009
That’s right, it’s done! I finished the dress yesterday (yes, last minute, I know) and I am sooooo happy! It is exactly what I wanted. It certainly didn’t come easy. Despite all the re-do’s and frustration I would never have done it differently. I’m so proud that I made my dress and it is just what I want to be wearing when I marry Geoff. Sigh…I can hardly wait.
Here is a photo of the full ensemble, veil, shoes, jewelry and all. You can see the colored petticoat peeking out ever so slightly at the bottom. HUMONGOUS thanks go out my mom and grandma who slaved over big poofy layers of tulle to help me make it. It’s a bit different that my original plan but I am super happy with the outcome. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Oh and if you plan on attempting a petticoat of your own, my advice is to make it first and give yourself plenty of time!
Here’s the back. It normally closes all the way, but my dress form is bigger than me now. That’s a good thing!
The sash was one of the last things I made yesterday. The dress just wouldn’t be complete without a nice big bow!
I made the flower originally for my hair, but last minute decided it looked better on the dress. I love it!
I cannot even put into words how excited I am. It’s great to see everything coming together. I’m excited for the parties, excited to see everything put together, excited to see all of my friends and family, but most of all, I’m excited to finally call Geoff my husband. I love his so much and cannot wait for the rest of our lives together.
