I wanted something special for my wedding. It was a country wedding in a barn not too far from the farm I grew up on, so I knew I wanted lace with a more classic/vintage silhouette, but I couldn’t find anything in the stores that fit what I was looking for. So, I made my wedding dress. It was difficult, and I had my fair share of meltdowns, but I really enjoyed the whole process and I’ll certainly never forget it. I also ended up adding a small lace bolero for the outdoor reception since it was a bit chilly in the fall.
I also made my bridesmaids with simple infinity dresses that they could tie any way they liked. My wedding was wonderful, and I loved how the dresses turned out.
Wedding dress: no pattern, lace, cream silk (under lining of lace), simple white cotton for innermost lining of dress, steel boning, tulle underskirt, & ribbon for the lace-up back.
Bridesmaids: Infinity dress pattern (I just googled it and it came up) & LOTS of simple knit fabric. It pretty much just had to be stretchy.
