A Wedding Tale

Happy Mother's Day to those celebrating today!!
I have a friend getting married and it's been so exciting to be a part of her wedding planning from the engagement until now.  The wedding is just a few weeks away and Heather's mom is making her wedding dress.  Heather has given me permission to share some of the pictures on my blog.

Her mom took off work last week and came to spend the week completing the dress.  As we near the end of the weekend, I'm sure the dress is finished but this was how it looked mid-week.  

The underlay
I just love the added tulle detail!

I can't wait to see the final product!  Heather is going to be a beautiful bride and following this magical spring wedding she and hubby are off to honeymoon in Italy!  You have to take a moment to see the hotel where they will be staying - incredible!  Heather did some serious shopping to nail this trip on a budget but she did it!!  Click here to visit the site of Rome Cavalieri.


  1. Oh my goodness - that hotel is beautiful! A wedding would be a lovely thing to be preparing in these first spring days. Good luck to the happy bride!

  2. Beautiful!! I think a wedding dress made by your Mom is so sweet and really very special. The hotel is amazing!

  3. I do hope you'll take us to the wedding! How special to have a dress made by one's mother. It's an undertaking of love.


  4. How wonderful to have a talented mom who can create a gorgeous wedding dress. Can't wait to see the bride in her dress. The hotel is fabulous! Maybe we need to book a second honeymoon. ~ Sarah

  5. How sweet her mom is making her dress. My very talented made mine as well as the bridesmaids and 4 flower girls.
    A little hairy as she didn't finish my train till the day before and my mom was stressing big time!

    Mother's Day? Now I have to go google where it is Mother's Day! :)
    Have a great week JO!
