I wasn't one of those girls that had her wedding planned since childhood. I really didn't have any idea what I wanted. The one thing I did know was that my mother would make my dress. Lucky for me my mom is a professional seamstress -but she's more than that she's a true artist/designer.
Shortly after Chris and I got engaged my mother and I got to planning the dress. I told her I didn't know exactly what I wanted but I did know that I wanted a convertible dress. I wanted a formal dress for the ceremony and a party dress to boogie down in at the reception. Not knowing what my mom would say I was happy (and relieved) to find out that she was up for the challenge (and could've possibly been more excited than I was to make the dress).
As you can see the dress was truly convertible as well as beautiful. I still really don't know how she did it being that we live about 11 hours (driving fast) apart. With the help of email, photos, my grandma, my sister and my mama's sheer talent this dress came to fruition and was AHHHHHHHMAZING. I still love it and want to wear it again.
Words can not describe how special and magical this dress truly was (and still is). There was a lot of blood, sweat and tears that went into it but the end result was better than I could've dreamed. Thanks MOM! I LOVE YOU.
