So I got married...

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.

Material Notes

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.

    Lots of good luck, health and happiness to infinity. Your dress, stunning with and without the tiny jacket. Lovely bridesmaid’s dresses, the look of the dresses do not look as disposable. And that you agreed to marry your husband Snickers ……………. It’s a sign of success in relationships (-:

    Wow! You look absolutely stunning! Beautiful job on your gown, and the bridesmaids dresses. I’m sure it was a tremendous amount of work, but most certainly worth it. It fits you like a glove.
