Wedding: Wearing Mom’s Dress

“No daughter and mother ever live apart,
no matter what the distance between them.

– CHRISTIE WATSON


Years ago, my mom told me that I could wear her wedding dress when I get married. Like a typical teenage, I dismissed her and said something about, “I don’t want to wear your dress. I want my own.” I do not know if she thought I would change my mind, but she cried happy tears when I after I was shortly engaged I asked her if I could look at it again. I was able to make it my own adding a lace panel to the middle because needed it to be longer and by removing the sleeves and collar. Thank you to Maridadi Couture for the beautiful transformation!

Before: I almost kept the collar, but it made me look like I had no neck.

Before: I would have kept the sleeves if the wedding hadn’t been in June.

After: On the wedding day, it hung on my Mrs. Perry hanger that I made over my lunch break.

After: I always loved the buttons that went down the back.

After: This dress was perfectly me. Simple, but thoughtful and detailed.
