My wedding dress on Perfect Bound =)

More exciting news about our wedding!!

When our beautiful wedding photos (by the oh-so-talented Becky of Studio 623 Photography) were featured on Ruffled recently, I was also asked to share the story of my wedding dress on Perfect Bound!

Check out the feature here... I'm so flattered to be asked to share the story of my homemade creation... THE dress for me!

The Perfect Bound story also talks about the bridesmaid dresses I made.

And, the dress again.

Ahhhh, weddings, how I love them!  Anyone out there still engaged?  Seems like lots of people have gotten married recently, but I wonder if there are still brides-to-be planning and reading the blogs.  I'll never stop loving wedding blogs!

  3. I just came across this blog... your dress is amazing. I am getting married next year and am just beginning to learn to sew. I'd love to make something for the wedding but probably not the dress!

  5. Hello! What a beautiful dress! I'm a bride-to-be and was thinking of making my wedding sash with flowers like yours. Could you point me to some helpful tutorials on how to make cloth flowers?

  10. I love your wedding dress. it is so beautiful.
    I am a size 18 and am looking for something to wear for our 25th Anniversary party. Can anyone suggest a dress or top to make inexpensively for a 50 something person who is 5 ft. 4 inches tall?
    I need to have 3/4 length or long sleeves.
    I will look at your story. You must have had a beautiful wedding!!
    Congratulations.

  12. You could sell replicas of your dress online. the world is a global market anyway.
