my favorite wedding dress ever?

Thursday, November 10, 2011

when jenny’s parents got married in 1981, jenny’s mom wore this very dress.  30 years later, after a few alterations and a bit of re-styling, it was transformed into jenny’s dream wedding dress.  and in case you were wondering, it looked even more beautiful in real life.


if there was ever such a thing as ‘the most disney princess-y dress of all time’, this would be it.


the woman adjusting her veil is the woman with whom jenny worked to re-design the dress.  she’s a seamstress genius, if you ask me!


can you tell she has years of ballet training?  i think her posture is perfect.


she even did her own hair, too.  so impressive.


2 other brides who made it into my ‘favorite wedding dress’ category can be seen here and here.

This dress is adorable. You're right - it's very Disney. She looks like what I imagine a real-life Sleeping Beauty would look like. Sweetly gorgeous!

Oh my goodness, this is so beautiful! I LOVE the back of the gown. It's right out of a fairytale and her hair is gorgeous!

I love it! So sweet that she wore her mom's wedding dress. Plus, I find wedding dresses so boring these days - they all kind of look the same. Hers is an original which is awesome!

@debbiecutieface, i know what you mean. they all seem to be the same cut, strapless, etc. i loved how different hers was.
