Since last week was my 29th anniversary, I thought it was a great time to share my wedding dress refashion for newcomers to my site.
Do you remember how you felt in your wedding dress? I felt like a total princess! I never went the route that most brides these days do. There was no dress shopping for me. Shortly after I became engaged, I took a trip back to my hometown of Milwaukee and promptly took my mother’s wedding dress out of the attic. It was in beautiful shape, and once I tried it on I had a vision of what I wanted. From that moment, it was my dress. Don’t get me wrong, it did need a lot of work. Here is the story…
As I move forward to my 30th anniversary I have started to think about what to do with my dress. The fabric is still so beautiful. I thought about giving it to a place that makes angel gowns for infants who are stillborn. Another idea was to make christening gowns for my future grandchildren.
I asked my boys what they prefered, and they want me to hold off on donating, They feel that a christening gown would be a good idea, but they want to check it out with their future brides. So, for the time being I will keep it. I have a good idea that my dress still has a great future in store. Whatever I choose I know my mother would be proud.
I would love to know if any of you have made or upcycled your wedding gowns. What is your story?
Hope you are all well!
