i LOVE how your mom’s dress turned out!!! πŸ˜€ 

i was going to do a similar thing with my mom’s dress, but in the end, i just didn’t have the heart to hack it up…. i later found out my mom was secretly relieved i didn’t destroy it. haha. (the dress was handmade by her grandmother for her, based off of about three patterns she combined because she liked parts of each one)

BUT i did steal it one day while she was at work and take portraits in it to surprise her with at the reception! unforturnately, my crazy day-of-coordinator showed my mom before i actually arrived AT the reception (and also didn’t tell the photographer to come over there with them when she showed her)… FAIL on the coordinator’s part. so i don’t have any photos, but people told me she bawled so hard that they thought someone had died… LOL… they said it was crazy heaving sucking cry, so i think it’s safe to say she was surprised and LOVED it… πŸ™‚ 

Here are some photos… the lining under there was an intense amount of gathered satin–it was made for a hoop skirt to fluff the whole thing out, but it was already too short on me (it’s masked here by the grass), so that would’ve made it look even funnier… plus my mom opted to not wear much of a crinoline on her big day, anyway, so this is close to what it looked like. 

OH, and this is also her veil… πŸ™‚

Ahhhhhhhh!!!  I read your dress thread and then happened to read this.  I absolutely love your alteration of the dress and how you got to use it at the rehearsal dinner.  It’s like the fairy tale ending to your dress dilemma.  Thanks so much for sharing this!  πŸ™‚
