So the date has finally come and gone. The wedding photos are finally here, and it is FINALLY okay for everyone to see the dress!! The suspense was killing me!! So not only did I do Erin’s dress but I did all the little attendants clothing too. I made 2 flower girl dresses and a ring bearer outfit. Whew…with the months of anticipation, I feel like I have given birth! Now that it is all behind us, I will say this, it was an absolutely beautiful wedding with lots of love. My sister in law Erin was a beautiful bride and we are thrilled to finally (after 8 years) have Uncle Andrew officially in the family.
Tammy’s original dress had an organza overlay, on the skirt, with a heavy taffeta underskirt. She probably wore a crinoline to make it stand out a bit. Erin wanted a softer “flow-y” feel to her dress. So we kept the original organza over skirt and replaced the underskirt with several layers of chiffon. She also wanted to add some more appliques to the skirt. Luckily the lace used on the skirt was a different lace than was used on the top, and I was able to match the allercon lace that had already been cut and appliqued.
I added a few extra personal touches, to finish it off. I took a piece of Tammy’s original bodice and monogrammed it to put over Erin’s heart in her new dress. She also wanted her and Andrew’s wedding date monogrammed into the hem of the skirt.
“Pull it apart, make it beautiful for Erin too!!”
On a less stressful note, I did all the “little” attendants attire too. Here are the very adorable flower girls and ring bearer.
Here are a few of my favorite shots from the wedding. Enjoy! A very special thanks to my sister in law Erin for trusting me to do this, and for letting me be such a big part of her and Andrew’s special day!
