And I did prove her wrong...I fit into the dress, perfectly!
I told my mom I would love to wear her dress if she'd allow me to update the look a bit; she agreed, and I had "the" dress. And then the inspiration came soon after.
This Monique Lhuillier was inspiration for the updated look of my mom's dress. The tiers were already there and so was the shape. I found a wonderful lady who was just as excited as I was to work on the dress. photo credit: Monique Lhuillier
Here's the lace from the top. I love the flower appliques!
The pleated Georgette silk is dreamy and strike me as very unique...though, I've seen a lot of pleated wedding dresses lately...so it looks like in terms of wedding fashion, I'm in!
And my initial idea for our wedding theme was "Modern-Vintage: Lace and Pleats."
...to be cont'd.
