So a month or so ago I mentioned that I got my mom’s wedding dress from her. It was badly yellowed and she was about to just throw it away.. but i was like “nooo let me see what i can do with that lace!!” I oxi-cleaned the hell out of it, ripped it apart and paired it up with some pieces from a fake flower. I then sewed some swarovski into the middle to match my wedding colors and jewelry, sewed it to the same clip my mom used in her hair on her wedding day…
note the awesome new amethyst earrings Fiance just got me for V-day to match my engagement ring!

Your flower turned out amazing! That is so special that you were able to use the lace from your mom’s dress. Does that make it your “something old”? 🙂

@ love it- heres my ring attached! now i have to get a rehearsal dinner dress that is either purple or a good contrast with purple 🙂
yes, the hair flower is my something old… i wasnt sure if i LOVED it but the more i look at it the more i do. The same officiant that married my parents and grandparents are marrying us too so there is a lot of specialness happening! Thanks for the great comments ladies! i showed my Fiance and hes like “i think its nice… is is supposed to look like a REAL flower?? i dunno, ask someone who knows about this stuff…”

Wow, you are really talented! That flower is great… has your mom seen it yet? Or is it going to be a surprise? Either way, I think it’s awesome.
Also… your e-ring is really pretty. 🙂
