My Wedding Dress

Officially married!

If you missed the first post, it has all the inspiration and background leading up to my final dress idea. This post is only pictures; later in the week I will post about constructing the bodice and the skirt in two separate posts. 

Let me say first, it was a beautiful wedding. The weather was sunny and 75, most of our family and friends could make it to New Orleans and it was just an absolutely wonderful day! I am so glad that I made my own dress, making the day even more meaningful to me. I love my dress and it turned into exactly what I wanted, even though I didn't know that in the beginning. :)

Thank you to everyone who cameto the wedding, and THANK YOU to all my sewing blog friends who helped encourage me through the (sometimes rage-filled) process of making it! XOXO, Molly


 
My beautiful bouquet, they were able to get peonies after all!


I was standing funny, looking at my shoe.

I hemmed it with scallops.


The back from straight on, before we did our "first dance."

The cake was both beautiful and delicious.

More information to come, but I just wanted to show off my masterpiece!
