Wedding Dress Re-Invention

I was totally wowed when I saw a post over on With This Ring... about a bride who wanted to incorporate her mother's gown into her own wedding. It is so incredibly sweet and sentimental, I felt I had to share it with y'all.

Meet Therese, who is seen here wearing her mother's original bridal dress. She hired seamstress Janet Brunton to completely remake the dress and update it with a modern feel.

Here's the structure of the new dress:

I am amazed at how beautiful the dress turned out! It's almost like watching an episode of Project Runway and seeing a piece of art made into another masterpiece. Now for some pictures from Therese's real wedding!

Look how gorgeous that dress flows! I bet it looks wonderful when she spins on the dance floor too!

please note that a custom re-invented wedding dress does not always cost less than a designer gown. Sometimes re-creation takes more work, so please make sure you ask your seamstress about pricing!
