Hello everyone! I finished my wedding dress. Oh, and I got married! Here is what I found out about the wedding: Not one person I have talked to had a romantic wedding night. Without fail, everyone says that they end up giving each other a peck on the cheek before falling over from exhaustion. If you had a romantic wedding night, I bet that you ran away to elope or something.
We cooked all of the food ourselves. I enjoyed the fact that we had total control over ingredients and I liked setting up the backyard wedding ourselves, but I see the appeal of running off, eloping and having a really great vacation with the money you would have spent on the wedding. I see it clearly NOW, that is.
I'll post again soon to talk about making the pattern for the dress, but I wanted to show photos of the finished dress. I was really nervous about it, but I am happy with the end result.
More on the construction on the next post. Talk to you soon!
Congratulations! Your dress is fab, I adore tea length wedding dresses, can't wait to hear more about yours...ReplyDelete
Thanks... there were more than a few pattern adjustments/combinations. I'm setting up some good lighting to take pictures of the inside of the dress.Delete
Félicitations! The dress is awesome, great work!ReplyDelete
Merci! I was happy with it. It isn't perfect, but it did the trick.Delete
Congratulations! Your dress is beautiful, I can't wait to hear about the process. I love the lace bodice.ReplyDelete
We did have a romantic wedding night, but most people don't. I dragged my husband out of the reception at 11 pm so we could have some time in the hotel together after such a stressful day. I made the bridesmaid dresses and a lot of the details myself, but thankfully, I'm stubborn enough that I mostly growled at the people who tried to change things on me. I see the full appeal of eloping in hindsight, though.
Wow... I can't believe you made the bridesmaid dresses. I spent a lot of time getting the fit right for me... I would really stress trying to get the fit right on multiple dresses. Plus, I don't generally sew for other people. You are the ONLY one I have heard from having a romantic night. Good for you.Delete
Omg! You look so beautiful in your dress! What a stunning bride :)ReplyDelete
That is nice of you to say. I felt good in the dress.Delete
Lovely dress! Well done and looking forward to learning more about the process. I'm making my own for a beach wedding in the Caribbean so any tips most welcome. :)ReplyDelete
Huge congratulations. Your dress is fab-u-lous. I love what you've done at the neckline. The lace fabric is gorgeous. And you look lovely. Like one of those fabulously glamorous ladies in a fifties movie. Hope you're loving married life. Looking forward to the post on how to make an amazing wedding dress. Selina.ReplyDelete
