Hey y’all! I’m a little bit behind on posting October’s FOFM but I wanted to share it with you because this bride was very creative in finding a way to be modest, beautiful, and economical with her wedding dress! I hope you gain as much inspiration to be innovative as I have!
“I purchased a used, strapless sample Maggie Sottero gown from a bridal shop on Ebay. Then I took it to a seamstress and she matched the satin and created a little shirt for it that closed in the back. She sewed it into the dress, added lace on the front to disguise the outline of the strapless dress, and then added beautiful satin button closures in the back.
“I felt so beautiful in my dress, and everyone wanted to know where I got it. Modest wedding gowns are usually very expensive brand new. I didn’t have $2000 to put towards a dress, which is a very average price for modest dresses. My dress cost $400 altogether (200 for the gown, 200 for alterations), even though it was worth over $1500 brand new. My veil was a great find for $85 on Ebay, but my seamstress said it was likely a $2,000 veil brand new.
