This is so wonderful!

I had such a hard time cutting into my great-grandmother’s wedding gown to collect some lace that I wrapped around my bouquet stems for my wedding, I know it’d be crazy difficult to make myself slice up my own wedding dress. But what a great idea, and it turned out beautifully. Just don’t let your cat or dog curl up on it.

That is such a cool idea! I think this is the FIRST idea I’ve heard for repurposing a wedding gown that I can actually see myself doing!

Thank you for posting this!!

It looks great.  Reminds me of snow under the tree, but, I think I’d cry seeing my dress cut and underneath the tree. 🙁  Even though I won’t have room to store it in our apartment.

Wow! I think that’s a GREAT idea! I saved mine hoping to do something with it someday, but until this past May, it only sat in the garment bag in the closet. With some tears, I finally cut it up and used it to cover my daughter’s card box for her wedding. Wish I’d thought of what you did!

Not the best angle as things look a little bumpy,but you get the idea. lol

Beautiful!  I’ve also heard of people using their wedding gown to make a baptismal gown for their babies.

Such a neat idea! I love that you also saved some for a baptismal gown for your future children! Best of both worlds!
