Opinions: DIY Wedding Dress?!
So my grandmother has made a zillion dresses in her lifetime, and she's almost 80 so I'm certainly attentive to her not being with us forever. Honestly, our whole wedding is 90% for them, my grandparents are truly the reason why I'm alive! Thankfully (and I don't just mean genetically lol.)
So I was going to order a bridesmaids dress I fell in love with at the boutique in a custom ivory on ivory color from DHgate. It's only $106 so I'm not exactly worried about budget here. I'm mostly worried about regretting missing out on making the dress with her and then not having her here with us in the next few years.
Plus it's honestly not that hard to make! lol The hardest part to the whole thing is the sweetheart bodice with 2 layers, one for the lace. The skirt I can totally make myself, I actually just finished making a tulle skirt out of $4 of tulle on sale @ Joanns and a sheet I found at my moms! ;) ha!
Opinions? Do you think I'm nuts, or is that extra bit of special memories and love going into my dress worth a little bit more stress (possibly, not sure how it'll actually be too stressful. It's a fairly simple and in expensive project for both of us, and she wouldn't be making the whole thing herself.)
So?!?! (Nice opinions though!!)
