I know there’s sometimes drama related to what other family members/MIL/friends decide to wear for ones wedding. Now, my wedding had it’s own fair share of drama – but my mums dress choice wasn’t one of them! 🙂 I think it’s so cool that 30 years after wearing her handmade (by her, including making the fabrics from scratch) folkdress to her own wedding she was able to wear it for my wedding!
She looks a little crazy on this photo (all psyked up toghether with her siblings that came in from Finland), but it’s the only image I have that shows the dress full figure. I think she looks so pretty in it and I’m so happy that she decided to wear it!

That’s a seriously pretty dress. Not sure if you wore a more American esthetic dress so I’m sure you stood out just fine! I think this was a wonderful gesture. How awesome!! 😀

Your mom’s dress is great. I think most people would be complaining if it were an actual white, poofy bridal gown, not something like this:)

30 years from now, I hope I can still fit in my wedding dress too!

Is anybody else jealous that she still fits it? It looks awesome, and I think it was a lovely gesture.

@eocenia: I was SO expecting from the title of the thread to see a picture of your mom in a white dress. But I love that she was able to wear her traditional dress. It’s so beautifully made. And she still fits in it!

@eocenia: That is SO COOL! Not only that she literally made her ENTIRE dress, but that she can still fit in it!
