My Wedding Dress

My dream wedding dress was created by Paolo Sebastian, an Australian designer. The dress was light and airy and absolutely perfect for our destination wedding. Unfortunately it also came with a hefty price tag. I knew after seeing this dress that no other would compare. When showing my trusted group of ladies a photo of the dress, they agreed, the dress screamed my name. I then decided that my mother and I were going to try to replicate the dress. Okay, let’s be honest, I begged my mom to recreate the dress herself. I am not nearly as talented with a needle and thread. Though she still says “I did what I could”, I could not have imagined a more perfect dress for my wedding day. It’s what every girl dreams of, feeling like an absolute princess. But it was extra special to me because it wasn’t a dress I bought off the rack, rather a dress my talented mother created for my special day. Thank you, Mom. (more…)
